2021-Supercar-910When approached by my editor to write this article, my first thought was, "My we're appealing to a very small subset of car owners in the Valley." Sure, we have McLaren of Scottsdale on Raintree and the Penske Auto Mall in North Scottsdale with Mercedes, Aston Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari dealerships. We have the Barrett-Jackson, Gooding's, Bonhams, and Sotheby's classic car auctions each year that generate untold millions in limited edition, supercars, and hypercars. We are a market of auto enthusiasts, no doubt; Phoenix ranks second only to Monterrey Motor Week in sales of thetop cars in the world!But not many of your everyday Phoenicians own true hypercars.

Then the thought occurred, if the advice in this article applied to hypercars, such as the Mercedes-AMG One, limited-edition shown above, it must be good enough for my classic. My sports car may be fourteen years old, but I still treat it with tender loving care, having it serviced only at a European Motors' specialist, and want to keep it in original, pristine condition. Perhaps that subset of car owners in the Valley is not quite so small.

Not All Supercars are Hypercars

Technically speaking, not all supercars qualify as true hypercars. According to Ferrari,"while a supercar offers world-class performance, a hypercar goes a step further -hypercars are the 1% of supercars, typically, limited-edition vehicles boasting cutting-edge engineering and technology."

To illustrate, there are incredible sports cars, such as the new mid-engine Corvette or the Porsche 911 Carrera, cars you will see everyday on the Valley's streets. Then there are supercarslike the McLaren 540C, the Porsche GT3, or the Lamborghini Huracan. You may see these at a "Coffee and Cars" event or the Scuderia Southwest Motorsports Gathering.

Finally, there are the true hypercars. Limited-edition vehicles with price tags that soar to seven figures and are available only to those .01 percenters who make the VIP list.Perhaps, if you're fortunate enough to be invited,you may spy one of these on the track at Maricopa's APEX Motor Club.

Hypercars, it seems, are for the elite – Hollywood A-listers, NBA All-Stars, almost any quarterback in the NFL, and certain business moguls. Think of Beyonce and Jay Z, the retired boxer, Floyd Mayweather (he owns several Bugattis, Lambos, Ferraris, and McLarens),or Jay Leno.

The Mercedes AMG One shown above is a limited-edition vehicle; only 275 of these 1,000 plus horsepower, $2.7 million vehicles will be made available. Oh, and pre-production is sold out. Aston Martin is developing the V12 Valkyrie, positioned as the fastest street-legal car in the world. One-hundred and fifty lucky enthusiasts will be able to purchase one at an estimated cost of $3 million.

The hypercar is expensive, crazy fast, and hascutting-edge technology. Most are beautiful to behold, albeit outrageously styled. They're awe-inspiring. Should you be fortunate enough to catch a glimpse, your head will swivel as they blow past you.
