Are you going to buy a hypercar?
Owning a hypercar seems like such a badass thing! Getting all of those looks as you pull up basically anywhere… But what you don’t know is that some of the hypercar brands hide big secrets owners should beware of before pulling out their credit card. In this Article, we’ll show you the top 5 bizarre rules every hypercar owner must tolerate.
In some models of hypercars, such as the Koenigsegg Jesko, you won’t simply be able to change the oil yourself. Instead, changing the oil in these hypercar models requires specialist technology and can only be carried out at dedicated, professional service locations.
It’s mainly because the gear and clutch system uses one type of oil, while the differentials use another. Nonetheless, if you’re rich enough to afford a Koenigsegg hypercar, would you really want to be switching out the oil in the car yourself? I don’t think so.
Another bizarre rule of the hypercar world is a limit on the number of hypercars you can buy. It can seem a little strange to think that those of us lucky enough to be able to afford these incredible vehicles couldn’t simply buy more of them! However, some hypercar brands have put very specific limits on the number of hypercars that someone can own. For example,
Mercedes set some strict rules for their Mercedes-AMG One. The 1.6-liter V6 hybrid engine and four electric motors in this hypercar essentially transplanted 1,000 horsepower Formula 1 hybrid technology into a road-legal two-seater for an unabashed 217.4 mph ride.
But, here comes the disappointment. Unfortunately, if you plan to buy 2 matching AMG Ones for you and your significant other, you just can’t. Mercedes will allow you to only purchase one of these cars!
Buying blind comes with its risks – but if you’re looking to buy a hypercar such as ByKolles Racing PMC Project road-legal model, you’re just going to have to do it. The company committed to creating a hypercar for the 2020/21 Le Mans 24-hour race, and, as the rules say, they had to develop even a road-legal variant.
The presumably stunning new hypercar model wasn’t actually unveiled to buyers until after they had purchased the car, and pre-reveal viewings were only available as a 3D rendered model.
The statistics, however, revealed that this hypercar might just be worth it. It has a V8 engine with a hybrid system that produces 1,000 horsepower and even runs on biofuel. These numbers attract many car fans, but let’s just hope the buyers will be pleased with the outlook, at least as much as with its power.
Imagine shelling out $2 million for one of 106 McLaren Speedtail hypercars, each with 1,035 horsepower and a hybrid drivetrain. I bet you wouldn’t let some crackhead do some experiments on it, even if McLaren allowed it. Its complex electric motor is complemented by a 4.0L V8 that is only accessed through a looong procedure and completed after all essential safety care has been taken.
Letting weekend mechanics tinker with your million-dollar hypercars will almost certainly result in you losing the right to possess one of them again. Or, if you choose some idiot, you might even end up losing the one you already own.
Perhaps the strangest rule for hypercar owners they have to live with is the fact that, sometimes, they aren’t allowed to sell their hypercars! A prime example of this is the Aston Martin Valkyrie, which lives up to its name in every way. However, the model was super-exclusive limited edition, and as explained by the Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer, even if you have a slot,
when they find out you flipped the car, you will end up losing your car and never getting a chance to get another one! And trust me, with only 150 of these cars cruising around this earth, they WILL find out! Which one of these rules would be the deal-breaker for you?
