Top 10 most expensive cars to own

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Leasing a luxury car is a excellent method to save some coin, because buying it, the owner will take the fall on depreciation when the new car is out of the door, but it’s worth keeping in mind that high-end autos carry with these high-end maintenance and repair costs. 24/7 Wall Street has collected just what it says are the 10 most expensive cars to own, plus the list is populated by some not-so-surprising names. BMW and Mercedes-Benz absorb the giant share from the offenders, though other manufactures make a showing too. Perhaps and in addition, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG takes top honors as the most high-priced of them all with a “true cost of ownership” of $245,469. That’s as well as the gullwing supercar’s $210,875 MSRP.

The calculations not only factor in deprecation, but additionally items like fuel, maintenance and insurance costs.

All told, Mercedes-Benz models takes four of the 10 spots on the list. That’s double as many as BMW, and the rest are split between makes like Land Rover, Audi and Nissan. If that last one seems a bit out of place, keep in mind Nissan makes the mighty (and mighty complex) GT-R.
