The world's most expensive cars for 2011

Okay. The money on these supercars would be better spent on feeding the needy or some other charity cause. But these aren’t just toys of the rich. They are more than just money spent on the owner’s own happiness. They are an investment. Despite millionaires everywhere taking a hit when the global economy took a slight turn for the worse, supercars have continued to make leaps and bounds in price. Why? Where normal investments have failed, investors that want their money to make money for them are now turning to things they can enjoy and get a slight return on in the long run. There is a risk, like any investment, of losing money but selective buyers of wine, art, guns, watches, and automobiles can enjoy as good or better returns than the stock market while at the same time gaining the enjoyment of owning such items.

As Tom duPont, publisher of duPont REGISTRY, recently told the Orlando Sentinel: "It's like playing the stock market.” If your collector car increases in value, great. But if it doesn't, "You'll have something you enjoy driving, or at least admiring."

Below is a list of the most expensive cars offered for 2011, with a limit of one per manufacturer:
