The supercar market is one of the craziest markets out there. Manufacturers know that what their clients are looking for is something unique, inimitable and unforgettable, so their designers, engineers and mechanics can let their imaginations roam completely free. The result often turns out to be a stunning, mind-boggling vehicle, with a price to match its one-of-a-kind qualities.
Few of us are able to afford the most impressive supercar creations, but even if purchasing one of them is out of the question, marveling at the vehicles that seem to have landed here straight from the future is still an immense pleasure that no car enthusiast will fail to appreciate. For your viewing pleasure, here are four of the most expensive and exclusive luxury cars on the market that we at Supercar Hire London can’t help but absolutely love to gawk at.
- No supercar list would be complete without a Ferrari, so we might as well go ahead and get it out of the way. LaFerrari has been described by its Italian manufacturers as the maximum expression of the company‘s spirit and is without a doubt one of Ferrari‘s most impressive models. The vehicle does a stunning job at combining technical innovations with the traditional style of the company, while its race-car-inspired interior is just as amazing. There are only 499 models on the market – considering its hefty price tag of about £1,000,000, you will be highly unlikely to meet a second LaFerrari on the streets if you ever happen to take this beast on the road.
- W Motors Lykan Hypersport is the first Arab-made supercar and it truly reflects the nation’s love for awe-inspiring luxury. It doesn‘t have any outstanding technical credentials to boast about, but what makes it stand out from the crowd is its diamond-encrusted LED headlights, extra-smooth leather interior complete with gold stitching and the Special Edition Cyrus Klepcys Watch that you get with the vehicle and which alone is worth more than £150,000. Only seven models have yet been made and every one of them costs close to £3,000,000. We can only dream of ever being able to own such a monster, but looking at pictures of it is just as satisfying.
- McLaren F1 most definitely deserves a special mention and it will hardly surprise true supercar lovers. Designed in the 1990s by F1’s Gordon Murray, it soon found itself at the forefront of the luxury vehicle revolution. The incredibly powerful BMW S70/2 engine is encased in a gold heat shield and allows the car to reach speeds of up to 240 mph. The makers of this supercar were the first to place the driver in the very centre of the cockpit, mimicking the race cars of Formula One. With only 106 vehicles ever produced, it is no wonder that purchasing this legendary piece of innovation can set you back as many as £10,000,000!
- The design of Lamborghini Egoista is nothing if not mind-blowing. As a one-off model that was unexpectedly unveiled at the Lamborghini‘s 50th anniversary celebration, it is a car that is meant to be looked at, rather than taken onto the streets. Along with impressive specs, it boasts a radar-absorbent coating, super-styled wheels and an interior that resembles a fighter jet more than it does a vehicle. The manufacturers famously described it as ‘a gift from Lamborghini to Lamborghini‘, so we are left to wonder what the price tag would be – which is just as well, as the sum would most likely be even more astounding than the car itself.
That is one of the beauties of supercars: you don‘t even have to sit in one in order to be able to appreciate the art that goes into making such a miracle of technology. It doesn‘t mean that driving it is not worth the investment of both your time and your money though – it definitely is, as the two experiences are completely different and offer pleasures of their own. You can marvel at luxury vehicles online, but head to Supercars London if you want to take your admiration of supercars up a notch and hire one of your own!
