The world has a new ultra expensive instrument: the Vieuxtemps Guarneri violin. The $18 million violin is the last one ever to be made by the legendary craftsmen Guarneri del Gesu, who was known back in the 18th century for making beautiful instruments.

The Vieuxtemps Guarneri violin was crafted in 1741 and since then has been played by some of the greatest violinists ever. The $18 million price tag on the Vieuxtemps Guarneri makes it only for the musically elite.
