Britain’s top 5 most expensive new cars to own in 2013Back

Last week, Trusted Dealers took a look at the cheapest cars to own in 2013, but what about the most expensive models? Take a look below to find out what were the most expensive to cars to own and run during the past 12 months.

BentleyMulsanneBentley Mulsanne 6.8 V8: Price £225,900

This is a true luxury car with an incredible price tag to boot. It has all of the space and refinement that you’d expect from a car of its calibre and furthermore its unbelievably fast, a doddle to drive and it ride well too. The only drawback to this otherwise fabulous car is its looks which might not be to everyone’s taste, but then again, if you have the cash to spend you can afford to be picky! The monthly cost to run a Bentley Mulsanne is £4,282.79 with the cost to own at a whopping £154, 180.60 – fancy it?

MercedesSLSAMGMercedes SLS AMG: Price £163,910

This is a striking highly superior sport car which offers brutal performance and an excellent grip. Take it out on any type of road and it will ride like a dream, not to mention its V8 engine which is music to our ears! Step inside the cabin and you might be a tad disappointed by the style and quality of the materials – it’s not anything more special than other Mercedes cars which is a real shame given the price tag. All said, it’s a fantastic car to drive and incredibly east to use, but it will cost you £3,505.07 per month and a total of £126,182.40 to own should you buy one.

BentleyContinentalGTCBentley Continental GTC 4.0 V8: Price £139,000

The Bentley Continental GTC is a strikingly powerful luxury car which is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 5.1 seconds, in fact, with the roof up, should you dare, you can reach a top speed of 195.1mph! With the roof down this is reduced to 189.5mph. The car has been on sale since 2006 and despite its high price tag, many owners would actually say it is reasonably priced. The downside to this ultimate car is its depreciation costs which remain incredibly high and will put many would-be owners off straight away. However, if you have cash to burn, it will cost you a mere £2937.47 per month to run and a total £105,748.80 to own.

BentleyFlyingSpurBentley Flying Spur 6.0 W12: Price £140,000

And in fourth place is yet another Bentley, the Flying Spur. This ridiculously fast luxury limousine has a reputation that few rival cars will ever be able to match. The downside of owning this incredible car is that you are restricted to one type of engine, the 6.0-litre 12-cylinder unit. Get past this and your passengers will certainly be in with a treat when they step inside. Monthly costs are £2,747 and the cost to own it is £98,891.85 – it’s certainly a purchase not to be taken lightly.

MercedesCL63CoupeMercedes CL 63 AMG coupé: Price £117,970

The latest Mercedes CL 63 AMG sports a 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged engine which is 32% more efficient than its predecessor and it has never been more at home. The 4 door coupe car offers excellent luxury transport and not only offers its occupants a limo-style interior, but it can achieve 549bhp (in the Performance Pack model) which is better than most other Mercedes cars on the road. To own the CLS will cost you £93,952.04 with a monthly cost of £2,609.78.
