The incredible design of sports cars today is, of course, worth a hefty price tag, but some are worth much more than others. These are the most expensive sports cars in the world today:

Society considers philanthropic and charitable efforts to positively impact individuals and their communities and the larger world. As someone with a passion for philanthropy and also a businessman, I want to know my efforts have made a difference.
