Vehicle Details: What’s a Supercar?

The most elite vehicles on the road today are amazingAprilFeatured_Supercars
There’s no shortage of practical and economical vehicles on the road today, and many of them are well-priced too. According to U.S. News & World Report in May 2015, the average transaction price for a new vehicle was $33,560.

Many people consider a luxury car from Lexus or Mercedes-Benz the symbol of choice to show others that you’ve made it. They offer luxurious interiors, lots of cutting-edge technology features and striking designs. But when a $70,000 vehicle isn’t good enough, there are those supercars that most people can only dream about, with features like seats stitched with gold thread, headlights with diamonds, engines that crank out 1,000 horsepower and price tags that top $1 million.

Bugatti Veyron
Since 2005, the Veyron has elevated the supercar game as few cars before it had. Sure, entries from Lamborghini and Ferrari enabled buyers to achieve neck-snapping speeds in the lap of luxury, but the Veyron brought the supercar to the current generation. With over 1,000 hp, zero-to-62 in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of just shy of 250 mph, the Veyron did what many thought was impossible. The price tag for such a car hovers around $1.7 million.

Koenigsegg Agera RS
When people think of Swedish vehicles, Volvo is traditionally the first thing to come to mind. But for those lucky enough to be able to attain a supercar in the first place, the Koenigsegg brand has a real treat. The Agera RS is as fast and powerful as nearly any other supercar on the market, and allowed the brand to secure deposits for all 25 units it put up for sale. And with an asking price somewhere around $2 million, that’s no small feat. Koenigsegg says the Agera RS can achieve 1,100 hp with 95 octane fuel, and even more when you put in E85 through the twin-turbo 5.0-liter V8 engine.

W Motors Lykan Hypersport
With its love for the lavish, it was only a matter of time before Dubai got into the supercar arena. The first creation of W Motors is the $3.4 million Lykan Hypersport, meant to invite Instagram posts all over Dubai. And with so many insane spectacles all around the country, that’s saying something. The Lykan Hypersport goes beyond raw power and adds features like gold stitching and diamond headlights.

“Diamonds in the headlights are something we don’t need at all, actually. It was a true marketing gimmick that we integrated. But people talk about it,” according to Ralph R. Debbas, the W Motors’ CEO.

Sure, the majority of people will never be able to buy their own supercar, but as long as your vehicle gets you where you need to go and you love it, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming. And when you find your dream car, let us help you with the financing.
