Top 10 Most Expensive Things In The World

by on February 1, 2013
 

I was drifting away in one of my short trances and thought! “If I had a few billion dollars to spare what would i spend it on” like you do. So I decided to ask a good friend of mine Google and came across searching some of the most expensive and bizarre things that you can buy in the world today providing you had that sneaky few billion in the bank. Well one could dream right.

1. Most expensive house in the world: Ambani house Mumbai

Lets start with the most expensive house in the world which currently is owned by Billionaire Mukesh Ambani of India. With a net worth of $43 billion why not build a skyscraper for your wife and 3 kids to live in. This 27 story (family home) skyscraper is located in downtown Mumbai India. Now my personal view on this is that when Mr Ambani built this apartment surely he must of had a few glasses of champagne too many. The architect of this giant Jenga looks like a small sudden guest of wind blowing in it’s direction and it’s game over.

Price Tag:  $2 Billion

 

2. Most Expensive Car in the world: 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO

Not long ago this 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO became the most expensive car ever when it was sold in the United Kingdom to a private collector.

Price Tag: $35 million

 

3. Most Expensive Television in the world: Prestige HD Supreme Rose Edition

Covered in hand sewn alligator skin studded with an obnoxious amount of diamonds this television is supposedly designed to make viewing a pleasure whether it’s on or off. Well with that kind of price tag you really would want to look at it and say money well spent.

Price Tag: $2.3 million

4. Most Expensive Watch in the world: Haute Joaillerie from Chopard

While it looks more like a glittery mess than anything useful for telling time, this diamond studded watch apparently struck somebody’s fancy…and wallet.

Price Tag: $25 million

 

5. Most Expensive Speakers in the world: Hart Audio D&W Aural Pleasure Loudspeaker

Most Expensive Speakers

According to Hi-Fi Choice magazine, the Hart Audio D&W Aural Pleasure Loudspeaker “can do things that no other speaker can.” And it damn right better do some amazing things — at $4.72 million, this speaker is perhaps the most expensive ever created.

This ultra-expensive speaker is a special edition — only one 18-karat gold pair will be made. (You can buy a cheaper version cast in bronze for $62,800.) It features some very high-quality components: a 200mm polypropylene bass driver and a 25mm aluminum magnesium dual concentric treble driver, for starters. It’s also very, very heavy at 110 pounds.

It’s probably not the most attractive design for your decor — or, really, the decor of anyone well off enough to have $5 million to blow on a one-of-a-kind speaker. But if you care about sound quality enough to actually consider a purchase, we’re not sure the package it comes in will matter that much to you.

Price Tag: $4.7 Million

 

6. Most Expensive Piano In The World: Heintzman Crystal

The “Crystal Piano” used for the Beijing Olympic Games was purchased at auction by a private bidder for a record 3.22 Million US Dollars!

The piano was played at the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 by renowned Chinese pianist Lang Lang, who mesmerized the huge audience with an unforgettable rendition of “Starlight.”

 It almost hurts doesn’t it? Made with over 100,000 kg of gold and decorated with everything from T-Rex bones to miniature meteorites this unfortunate case of what-the-heck-do-I-do-with-5-billion-dollars is owned by an anonymous Malaysian businessman.

PriceTag: $4.8 billion

10. Most Expensive Ring In The World: Chopard Blue Diamond

Most Expenisve Ring

If you’re an aging bachelor and billionaire looking to wed someone half your age, you may want to look into expensive engagement rings. One such individual’s proposal to an ex-model involved a $1.5 million engagement ring. That may seem way out there, but it’s not even close to the most expensive ring in the world.

The Chopard Blue Diamond Ring is the ring that makes any other diamond ring look bad. Set with an enormous, oval-shaped blue diamond, the expensive ring also has diamond shoulders and an 18k white gold band paved with diamonds.

Blue diamond is among the most expensive diamonds in the world. It is found among boron deposits, from whence it derives its shade. This particular gem weighs in at nine carats

PriceTag: $16.26 Million
