    And why are you telling all this to pakistani awam? What they have to do with these cars? You need to tell them where to find the least expansive daal, sabzi, roti. etc. Have some compassion. Recommend

    There are a bunch of VERY EXPENSIVE cars parked in the basement garage of the building owned by Ishaq Daar in Dubai (supposedly owned by his son). They include a bunch of Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Rolls’ & Bentley’s etc. including current and classic collectible models. How and where did he get the money to buy not only several very expensive buildings but all the exotic cars?? If his name is not on the top of Panama leaks list, it does not mean that these sitting post holders in our government should be given a license to continue looting our wealth and showing no accountability for their past transgressions.

    The most expensive car is the Maybach Exelero with the price tag of US$ Eight million only.At this price you can buy few of the cars listed in this article being the ‘most expensive’.The journal Tech Insider should have done more research on this subject before coming up on their list of most expensive cars!Recommend
