Deusenberg, Ferrari and Buggati are all fine automobiles, and all might logically hold the label as the World’s Most Expensive Car. However, the most expensive car in the world might not be the classic that readily comes to mind. According to a feature in, all of all publications, the Jamaican Gleaner, a newspaper in Kingston, Jamaica, the most expensive car in the world might just be an Audi.

Business reporter John Myers Jr., details that Issa Transport Group (ITG), the Kingston representative for Audi, has an Audi A8 Security available via special order for $80 million.

Deborah Stewart, Audi brand and sales manager at ITG, says “Given its features, the A8 Security is ‘reasonably priced.’ “

The Audi A8 Security sedan has “standard” features such as full-cage outer-body armour certified by the German Federal Police, run-flat tires, gas tank and battery armouring, double-mirror interior, emergency door; silky-soft power-adjustable leather seats, refrigerator, retractable rear-seat tables, heated wind screen, multi-zone climate controls, and a slate of other comfort features.

The car is more than three times as expensive as the nearest luxury security equipped rival.

According the newspaper, here are other examples among the world’s most security equipped luxury cars:

* The Mercedes Benz S500 — $24 million. The S500 is equipped keyless ignition start, premium-leather ventilated massage front seats (rear seats optional), eight-way power-adjustable front seats (rear seats optional), parktronic with rear-view camera, night-view assistant, multizone climate-control system, blind-spot assistance, and 20-inch AMG sport wheels, along with a range of optional features that can be selected by the buyer.
