Most Expensive Cars at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show

1 of 12

Most car shoppers aren't looking for something that is flashy or is going to break the bank. They want a reliable vehicle that is moderately priced and comfortable for a daily commute. We've already shown you several of those types of cars in our coverage of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, officially known as the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). However, every once in a while it's fun to take a look at the cars at the other end of the spectrum.

The cars in this slideshow define flashy and are anything but moderately priced. For the asking price of most of these cars, you could buy a three-bedroom house in some parts of the country. Their 600-plus horsepower engines aren't exactly frugal, and their features, which range from champagne flute holders to neck-mounted air vents, are extravagant. These cars have so many advanced features that they can almost drive themselves. The only models at the Detroit Auto Show that are more expensive than these are the one-of-a-kind concept cars, which are essentially priceless.

There is a small element of practicality here. These high-priced models are testing grounds for new ideas. Many of the high-tech luxury and safety features common in mass-market cars today, such as adaptive cruise control and touch-screen systems, first debuted in luxury models. But mostly these cars are just fun to look at. Read on to see some of the most expensive vehicles from this year's show.
