Small and Luxurious: 10 World’s Most Expensive Mini-Cars

What car can you buy for 42 000 Euros? The answer is simple – Mercedes C-class or Volkswagen Multivan. But do you know that several compact cars are even more expensive than premium C, E and S-class vehicles? For example, for 42 000 euros you can also buy Morgan Three Wheeler with a length of only 3.23 meters. In fact, the car’s size doesn’t mean that it’s cheaper than a premium-class car. So, check out the world’s most expensive mini cars, the length of which doesn’t exceed 4 meters…

Volkswagen Polo GTI

Car Body Length: 3.98 m

Price: 22 525 Euros

Polo GTI is a powerful vehicle with 1.8 liter engine producing 192 horse powers. For example, the maximum speed of this model is 236 km/h. If you think that it’s not a great speed, take into consideration that this is just a mini car. Behind the wheel of Polo GTI you will feel like a Ferrari driver at a speed of 300 km/h. The only disadvantage of the car is, of course, its price.

Smart Fortwo Turbo Cabrio

Smart ForTwo Brabus 2010

Car Body Length: 2.69 m

Price: 23 100 Euros

Citroen DS 3Cabrio

Car Body Length: 3.95 m

Price: 26 300 Euros

Here’s another interesting expensive mini-car – DS 3Cabrio with diesel HDI engine. This car is so expensive that the effect from a fuel-efficient diesel engine is pointless. So, it’s unclear why Citroen released this version. It is unlikely that people who pay a lot of money for a small car will think about fuel-saving with a diesel engine.

Mazda MX-5 Skyactiv-G

Car Body Length: 3.91 m

Price: 27 200 Euros

Basically, the cost of this car is relatively normal. But if you look at the length of the car body, which is only 3.91 m, then the price tag of over 27 000 euros is greatly overpriced. However, judging by the sales of Mazda MX-5 Skyactiv-G, people choose this 160-hps compact roadster very often.

Audi S1 Sportback

Car Body Length: 3.97 m

Price: 31 100 Euros

Audi is positioned as a premium brand. Therefore, there’s nothing surprising in the price of its products. But there’s one car in Audi’s model line, which price is difficult to be explained. This is Audi S1 ​​Sportback with the price of 31 thousand euros.

Even despite the stunning technical specifications (231 hps, acceleration 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds), the cost of the vehicle is still clearly high. Especially considering the fact that Audi S1 is just a mini-car.

Mini JCW Cabrio

MINI Cooper S Roadster R59

Car Body Length: 3.87 m

Price: 33 700 Euros

You probably have noticed that we smoothly moved into the price segment of 30-40 thousand euros, where usually big premium cars are represented. But there are a lot of small cars in the world, the price of which is comparable to some models of C and even E-class. So, Mini JCW Cabrio is among them.

Fiat Abarth 695 Biposto

Fiat 500 Abarth

Price: 61 100 Euros

In addition to Morgan Three Wheeler, there are some mini cars in the world, which are much more expensive. For example, Lotus Elise 250, which costs more than 60 thousand euros.

For this money you get a sports car accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just in 3.9 seconds. This is faster than BMW M2 or Porsche 911 Carrera with a twin-turbo engine. And this is in the view of the fact that Lotus Elise is equipped only with a four-cylinder 1.8-liter turbo engine producing 246 hps.

Alfa Romeo C4 Spider

Car Body Length: 3.99 m

Price: 72 000 Euros

So, the last one is Alfa Romeo 4C Spider with the price of 72 thousand euros! This is the most expensive small car. It’s worth noting that this roadster is equipped with a chassis made of carbon fiber. As a result, the curb weight of C4 Spider is 995 kg. Due to the fact that the power of the car’s engine is 240 hps, this roadster is able to give you a lot of impressions and adrenaline.

As you see, mini-car doesn’t always mean a mini-price. However, each item has its own buyer. If you like any of these mini-cars and want to try it, then use car rental Dubai, where you can find almost each vehicle presented in this list.
