Ask anyone that has driven a jeep — they’re fun to drive, especially when you’re going off-road. Jeeps are customizable, so you can take on anything the road, or mother nature, can throw at you.

It doesn’t matter what it is: rocks, boulders, bushes or streams. The right type of Jeep can handle any kind of environment.

Jeeps are also great summer vehicles, especially if you have a soft top. Simply fold the roof back and enjoy the sun and wind as you drive along on the road. Ultimately, Jeeps are practically synonymous with adventure.

Keep in mind that not every Jeep is priced like the highly affordable Jeep CJ5 (usually priced around $3,000 depending on where you look). Some Jeeps are so expensive that the long row of zeros will make you do a double take. Here are 10 of the most expensive Jeeps in the world.

 

1) Wrangler Unlimited Polar

Price: $32, 695
The Wrangler Unlimited Polar is one of many Wrangler editions that has been unleashed upon the North American market. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, many Jeep enthusiasts were waiting for the release of this vehicle.

Interestingly enough the Unlimited Polar was based on the design of the Wrangler Unlimited. The Polar has a fitting name. It wears a badge that features the location of Vostok, Antarctica where the coldest temperatures on earth have been recorded.

The Unlimited Polar also features a body-color hardtop, black-trimmed grill, black colored Wrangler Sahara wheels as well as heated seats. It’s certainly a comfortable ride which is reflected in its price tag.

 

2) Wrangler Unlimited Altitude

Price: $35,695
With all-terrain capabilities, like any proper off-road Jeep, the Wrangler Unlimited Altitude is offered with either two or four-door options. The Altitude has the classic yet rugged Wrangler look, yet it has much more to offer.

You’ll certainly impress your passengers with the sleek liquid titanium interior accents and heated leather-trimmed front seats.

The Unlimited Altitude houses a V6 engine under the hood and can reach 100 km in 9 seconds. Roomy and capable of handling anything the road has to throw at it the price tag is appropriate for this classy Jeep.

 

3) Wrangler Unlimited Dragon Price: $36,595

The Wrangler Unlimited Dragon is the only Jeep you’ll find on this list that sports a tattoo. Yes, as the name implies, the Wrangler Unlimited Dragon wears a dragon tattoo that dances across the side of the vehicle and lays at rest on the hood. If anything, the Unlimited Dragon will most certainly turn heads as you drive past.

The gold and black edition of the Unlimited Dragon is the very epitome of style and class. With a dragon design stitched beautifully into the seats, this is the type of Jeep that you show off to your friends. The price range most certainly reflects its class. 

 

4) Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X Price: $37,000

The last thing you need with the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X is asphalt. This Jeep was built for off-roading. It doesn’t matter what’s in your way — boulders, streams, and even hills, all obstacles are mere playthings to the Rubicon X. This is likely the most off-road oriented Jeep out there.

With its 4:1 transfer case, locking differentials, and sway bar disconnect you’ll be hard-pressed to find another off-road vehicle capable of matching the abilities of the Rubicon X.

Rubicon X was also built to be fully modded. You can add a winch, slap on bigger tires and much more. Though it’s not as expensive as some of the other choices on this list, it certainly performs as well as the best of them.

 

5) Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited Price: $50,000

When the Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 limited was first dropped into the market in 1998, it was considered to be the fastest Jeep in the country. To make the 5.9 more attractive to a larger pool of buyers, it was offered in limited numbers.

In other words, if you didn’t jump on it now you likely would never get another chance to own it again. With its 5.9 Liter V8 engine, ability to reach 100km/h in 7.8 hours, Silver Star wheels and luxurious design, many interested buyers were champing at the bit to get their hands on this limited edition Jeep, even with its steep price tag.

 

6) Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2, 2010 Price: $70,000

The WK2 first hit the auto market in 2010 and is best known for its unique yet tough design. Safe to drive and luxurious to boot the WK2 2010 has much to offer to consumers. The WK2 also sports a V8 under the hood. If you’re willing to pay the $70,000 price tag you’ll be able to enjoy a vehicle that excels in luxury, style, and safety.

 

7) Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, 2006 Price: $80,000

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 was launched in 2006 and took the market by storm. At the time it was the best selling vehicle in the market. Capable of 4 wheel drive and sporting a 6.1-liter V8 engine, this baby had plenty of punch when you pressed down on the accelerator.

Furthermore, the interior is made of high-quality materials. The exterior also has a luxurious appearance. When you’re driving the SRT8, you’ll look like you’re driving an $80,000 Jeep.

 

8) Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, 2012-2016 Price: $120,000

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the only Jeep out there that doesn’t promote itself as a champion of off-roading. If anything, it excels exceptionally well on asphalt roads.

With its 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine and a top speed of 250km/h it certainly has the power to back up its price tag. Overall, the SRT8 is considered to be one of the more powerful and quicker Jeeps available to the public.

 

9) Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT (WK2), 2013 Price: $130,000

This fourth-generation mid-size luxury crossover SUV isn’t your typical Jeep. Unveiled at the 2009 New York Auto Show the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT was made for style. Despite its elegant appearance, the SRT won 30 awards for its off-road capabilities.

The SRT is equipped with a luxurious interior that includes real wood accents, state of the art electronics and leather trim. Though it has a more modern look, the SRT still retains its classic Jeep stylings. Highly reviewed and seen as best in class, there’s a reason that the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is so expensive.

 

10) Jeep Hurricane Concept
Price: $2 million

With a price tag of $2 million you better believe that the Jeep Hurricane has unrivaled power beneath the hood. First unveiled at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, nearly all spectators had to do a double take due to the unique design of the body.

The Jeep Hurricane has a one-piece body composed of lightweight carbon fiber. It can only sit two people, and it doesn’t have a side door or roof. With its 8-cylinder HEMI engine and a top speed of 250 km/h, there isn’t anything out there that can compete with this beast.

Due to the complex nature and cost of the drive train, there are no plans to make the Jeep Hurricane a production vehicle. Well, at least we can dream about driving this bad boy.

The most expensive cars in the world are so much more than others. These rolling art pieces abbreviate, the priorities of the one percent, and in that universe, flamboyance and swagger take precedence over practicality and efficiency. Lifestyle denunciation aside, these are truly mind-boggling machines, and we’d like to count down our favorites for you here.

10. Zenvo ST1 ($1.2M)

 

 

Kicking off our list is less of a car and more of a random animal in the ST1. Assembled in Zealand, Denmark, the Zenvo creates an absolutely offensive amount of power by combining a 6.8-liter V8 with both a supercharger and a turbocharger. Just how much is obscene exactly? How about 1,104 horsepower and 1,054 pound-feet of torque, all channeled to the car’s rear wheels.

 

9. Ferrari LaFerrari ($1.4M)

 

 

Few cars on the road are more noticeable, and even fewer accelerate faster. With a dry weight of fewer than 2,800 pounds, this dragon-like performance car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds, and it’ll prance to 124 mph in under 7. Flat out, it’ll top 217 mph.

 

8. Pagani Huayra ($1.4M)

 

 

The Huayra is equally as famous for its odd-sounding name as it is for its face-melting presentation. Named after the Incan God of Winds, the Huayra (pronounced why-rah) boasts an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter V12 with two turbochargers, resulting in 620 hp and a massive 740 lb-ft.

7. Aston Martin One-77 ($1.4M)

 

 

Under the vented hood lurks a naturally extend V12 that displaces 7.3 liters, which is a lot. It produces 750 hp and 553 lb. Those numbers make the One-77 the fastest Aston Martin ever made, as this spy chaser will top 220 mph in the right conditions. From a stop, it’ll do 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

 

6. Koenigsegg One:1 ($2.0M)

 

 

You can buy a lot with $2 million — a really nice house, about 80 Mazda MX-5’s, or the Swedish “mega car” shown above. A logical thinker could probably think of a better way to spend your life savings, but mega cars don’t give a damn about logic. Because they’re mega. And after reading what the car is capable of, $2 million might actually be a steal.

 

5. Ferrari F60 America ($2.5M)

 

 

The supercar is unthinking identical to the F12, but the Berlinetta isn’t exactly a Fiat Panda, to begin with. Its 6.2-liter V12 churns out 740 renowned hp, enough to propel the car to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. The ultra-rare flag-waver hearkens back to Ferrari’s bespoke past, as the company built several region-specific sports cars in the 1950s and 1960s.

 

4. Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron ($3.4M)

 

 

 

This list wouldn’t be thoroughgoing without some version of the mighty Bugatti Veyron. We’re shining our spotlight on the Mansory Vivere edition here, because not only is it one of the fastest cars in the world, it’s one of the most expensive.

 

3. W Motors Lykan Hypersport ($3.4M)

 

 

You may recall the Lykan Hypersport from its starring role in the blockbuster Furious 7, where the Lebanese supercar strikethrough, not one, not two, but three skyscrapers in Dubai. In a franchise filled with high-end exotics and one-off custom creations, the fact that the Hypersport got so much focus is a shred of evidence to its magnetism.

 

2. Lamborghini Veneno ($4.5M)

 

 

 

The car is absolutely stunning from every angle, and to this day, we’re not convinced it isn’t an alien spacecraft surveying our planet for eventual takeover. It just doesn’t seem real. The only thing more remarkable than the look is the price — a whopping $4.5 million.

 

1. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.8M)

 

 

Underneath the lustrous finish lies a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 hp and 797 lb-ft, which means it should have little to no trouble overtaking semis on the freeway. The car identification, — in both performance and price — are nearly comical at this point, and just three were ever made.

 “The 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe was sold for $8.7 million in 1987. That and many others won’t be included in this list, they are no longer available in the market.”

Bingo! we are here with India’s most popular 5 cars that you can not resist to buy in 2019. These cars promise to offer the best of capabilities under the price tag of under INR 10 lakh.

Given below are the Five cars in the Indian market which are in the league of cars like when it comes to overall satisfaction but cost under Rs. 10 lacs.

1.Volkswagen Polo 1.6L GT TDI Diesel
Volkswagen Polo, a Hatchback versions available in India. Polo has more Petrol cars and more Diesel cars. Volkswagen Polo comes in 6 colours, namely, Candy White, Carbon Steel, Flash Red, Lapiz Blue, Reflex Silver, Toffee Brown.

WHEELS AND TYRES 185/60 R15

 

EX-SHOWROOM PRICE- 7.8 LAKH.

2. Hyundai Grand i10

The only aspect we haven’t touched upon yet is the new Grand i10’s dynamic ability. For starters, it feels stable and safe at three digit speeds on the highway, so that’s well covered. It’s got decent brakes too. But, if you want driving, the Grand i10 might not appeal to you. The steering lacks feel, the chassis seems mute and though it feels up to the task of taking on quick direction changes, it really isn’t a car that excites.

 

 

FACTORS
Body Type Monocoque
Engine  1186ccEngine
Fuel Type Petrol/diesel
Transmission Manual
No of Gears 5
SAFETY FEATURES Airbag
WHEELS AND TYRES 165/65-14

 

EX-SHOWROOM PRICE- 4.45 to 6.44 lakh.

  3. Honda Brio

Undoubtedly, the Honda Brio is one of the good looking city cars in the Indian market at present. The Brio is the only Honda hatch under 4.62 lakh on offer in this part of the world and boasts charismatic looks, peppy motor and chic interiors. With its compact dimensions, it can zip through jam-packed city roads and is easy to park too. Recently, the Japanese automaker gave it a facelift, after a good six years of service and mind you, the car looks sportier and sharper now. Let’s delve in to know what all goodies it offers and where’s the scope for improvement.   

The Honda Brio is an excellent car for a person looking for to drive vehicle and is more concerned with the handling. The cabin appears fresh and is solidly built. Honda’s i-VTEC motor balances the power and fuel efficiency quite well giving best of both worlds.

However, it’s the poor boot space and bumpy ride quality which messes the charm. Plus the features on board make you feel the Brio feel bare-bones. Tagging it as a good family car would be difficult given the competition it encounters.

 

 

 

FACTORS
Engine 1198 cc
Fuel Type Petrol/diesel
