Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive car license plate - made up of the single digit, '1' - was sold to Saeed Abdul Ghaffar Khouri (UAE) for Dh52.2 million ($14.2m, £7.2m).
The Super Sport is capable of 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds, 0-124mph in 6.7 seconds and the ability to cover one mile in just 23.6 seconds.
