Renting a Hypercar - when supercars are not enough.
Updated: Jan 15
McLaren P1, La Ferrari, Porsche 918 Spyder or Bugatti. Hypercar Rental in Europe.
When Carl Benz invented the automobile in 1886 - there was only one. Today we think in different standards. There are hatchbacks, convertibles, MPV's, SUV's, we have sports-cars and many more categories to describe a type of car. As sports-cars became faster, with even more horsepower than ever before, the term supercars came into fashion to describe high performance sports-cars, like a Lamborghini or Ferrari.
But with recent developments in the automobile sector the term supercar was not good enough anymore to describe a new category of high-performance supercars - a trend that started in 2013 with McLaren's P1, a twin-turbo V8 monster featuring one of the meanest-looking rear ends in the car industry. Even Batman's automobile looks cute in comparison.
Since then the top 1% of all supercars get acknowledged as hyper-car. Attributes are usually: rarity, advanced technology, speed and in general anything that goes above and beyond current thinking of how to make a supercar better. Current models include not only McLaren's P1.
Also Ferrari's "La Ferrari" is part of the family - the F12’s 6.3-litre V12 engine is working in tandem with a 161bhp electric motor to reach a top speed of 217mph (350 km/h).
While Supercars in the nicer neighbourhoods of western cities are a pretty common sight. Hyper-cars are rarely seen anywhere outside of Dubai, London or the French Riviera. The reason is simple: a guaranteed insane price tag.
Also the mid-engine engineering marvel from Stuttgart in Germany - the Porsche 918 Spyder, powered by a 4.6 L V8 engine with 608 PS is a rare find outside the usual car hotspots.
Unimaginable that someone would ever handover the keys to the extremely limited editions of a hyper-car. So if you ever wanted to test-drive one of those rare hyper-cars the chances are pretty low unless your billionaire friend turns out to be a really nice guy.
Until now! With a clean driving record and enough pocket-money handy you can now fly to Europe and experience those hyper-car models yourself. For an insane EUR 20.000 per day those hyper-cars are available to rent in Europe.
Out of question that the mileage is limited and a huge security deposit needs to be put down. Clearly not for everyone. But maybe a wise investment for those planning to buy a hyper-car.
