The 15 most expensive cars of 2007; #1 could buy you 5 Veyrons

BusinessWeek put together a list of the 15 most expensive cars of 2007, and if you think your car is expensive now, wait until you've owned it for 35 years. The above 1962 Ferrari 330 TRI/LM raced Le Mans in 1962, was crashed there in 1963, and then driven every day as a commuter car in New York City from 1965 to 1974 (back when the city that never sleeps was the city that just didn't give a damn). It surely cost a good looking penny when it was made, but this year it topped the auction sales sheets, going for $9.3 million dollars.

Perhaps it was due to this year being Ferrari's 60th anniversary, or rich folk just decided to put some of the best examples in play: eight of the top fifteen cars on the list are of the marque from Maranello. No other maker had even two cars on the list, although there were three cars that start with "D": Duesenberg, Delage and DeDion. Even the least expensive car on the list would get you a Veyron, a Murcielago, a down payment on a house, a Bentley GT as a winter beater, and an around-the-world vacation by private jet with spending money to spare: a 1932 Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Corto that sold for $2.82 million.
