    Have you ever dreamt of owning one of the most expensive cars in the world? How about having a vehicle that is a beaut and stands out?

    For many, their ultimate dream is to join the Million-Mile Club! Racing up a million miles is no easy task, sometimes it takes an entire career worth of driving to reach the mark.

    This makes it all the harder for regular drivers to aim for such a strict target. Nonetheless, five amazing beauties have crossed that milestone, making them one-of-their-kind.

    With more than 15,000,000 miles altogether, here are the ten highest mileage vehicles in the world!

    Joseph had managed to reach 1,620,000 miles by 1999 after driving his vehicle as a taxi in Montreal for most of his career! He almost won the Guinness Book of World Records at the time; he only needed a few hundred more miles (264 kilometers, actually) to take first place. Unfortunately, his car was totaled by a truck that ran a red light.
