A super-powerful and very fast supercar, produced in a small edition and worth fabulous money, is a thing naturally available only to a narrow circle of people. Such cars are very often sold out even before the official premiere or shortly after it. However, it also happens that they try to sell such an exclusive in the simplest and most convenient way today - by an ad on the Internet. Here are some examples that have appeared on Auto RU.
The announcement of the sale of a very rare Lamborghini Reventon roadster was recently posted on Avto.ru. One of the fifteen issued copies is offered in St. Petersburg at a price of 90 million rubles. At first, they asked for 99 million for this Reventon, but a month later the price was reduced, but this did not help yet: the supercar is still listed as unsold. The soft-top car, based on the Murcielago, is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine with 670 hp. The run of the St. Petersburg copy is 9000 km. According to the seller, the car does not have any technical or legal problems, and as the reason for the sale, he cites the desire to replenish his garage with more modern cars.
According to an ad on the Internet, you can easily buy a used Bugatti Veyron: for a car built in 2007 in Moscow, they ask for 95.6 million rubles. The mileage of the hypercar over the past years is about 11,000 km. It turns out that, on average, its owner drove about 850 km per year, but the Veyron never claimed the status of an everyday car.
The car-manifesto, in a convincing form telling about the technical power of the Volkswagen concern, went on sale in 2005 - the power of its 8.0-liter W16 exceeded 1000 hp, and its top speed is 400 km / h. The minimum price of a hypercar at the start of sales was one million euros: while, according to unofficial estimates, the production of each copy of the German concern lost 4.6 million euros. The Veyron was produced until 2015, after which it was replaced by the Chiron - even more powerful, faster and even more expensive.
The Veyron's successor, the Bugatti Chiron hypercar, was sold through Avto.ru in 2019 for an incredible amount of 279.5 million rubles. Or much cheaper - for 2,640,000 euros - if the buyer did not plan to arrange the import of the car to Russia. In the description of the configuration, the seller was laconic and promised to send all the details upon request. The technical capabilities of the Bugatti Chiron are known: the 8.0-liter petrol W16 develops 1500 hp, the hypercar can accelerate to "hundreds" in 2.5 seconds, and its top speed is 420 km / h.
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Stirling Moss
One of 75 cars of the special series, named after the famous British racer Stirling Moss, was sold in 2014 in Moscow. The 2009 model year with a 650-horsepower V8 was offered by a company specializing in the supply of exclusive cars from Europe. The maximum speed of the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss is 350 km / h, and it is able to overcome the first "hundred" in 3.5 seconds.
Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
But the "regular" SLR McLaren in Moscow can be purchased now - also by an ad on Avto.ru. A black coupe with red interior trim with a range of 28,000 km is estimated at 83,000,000 rubles. The car was released in 2005 and has changed over the years, according to the records in the TCP, as many as five owners.
Aston Martin One 77 Q Edition
The same sellers of exclusive supercars from Autolehmann that sold the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss brought a rare Aston Martin coupe to Moscow. Model One 77 with 7.3-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 760 hp. was produced by the British automaker in a limited edition of 77 pieces, all of which were sold out before the premiere. The presented coupe is an even rarer version of the Q Edition, richly decorated with carbon fiber trim. Only seven of these machines were assembled.
The legendary supercar Porsche CarrerGT is also available for purchase in Moscow. The car with a carbon fiber monocoque, in fact, not far removed in its design from the "Le Mans" racing cars, has earned a reputation as a very wayward car - it does not forgive piloting mistakes. CarrerGT, put up for sale in Moscow, was released in 2004. Its mileage in 16 years was 31,665 km. Asking for a car with a 5.7-liter 612 hp engine. almost 37 million rubles.
Ferrari 456 GTA
When designing cars designed for high speeds, engineers strive to lighten the entire structure - of course, not at the expense of strength. But sometimes there are also "weighted" sports cars. This armored Ferrari of 1999 was put on Auto.ru a year ago and, according to the seller, belonged to the famous Italian businessman and politician Silvio Berlusconi. The vehicle with a range of 29,000 kilometers has concealed B4 class armor that can protect against pistol shots, as well as bulletproof glass of 4 cm thickness. At the same time, it is alleged that the protection of the car is factory - it was integrated into the design of a coupe with a 442-horsepower V12 at the Ferrari plant in Maranello. We even made a great video about this car!
A replica of Batman's car was put up for sale on Avto.ru in 2016 at a price of one million euros. The car, built on the General Motors platform with a 550-horsepower Ford engine, was assembled in the United States. At the same time, it not only looks spectacular: according to the owner's assurances, a replica of a car from films about a superhero can accelerate to 250 km / h. At the same time, the car was accompanied by a certificate from the Warner studio, which recognized this instance as one of the best replicas of the Batmobile.
The second Batmobile - an exact copy of the one that starred in the movie "Batman v Superman" - was put up for sale in Moscow in the fall of 2019. A huge car 6 meters long with a V8 engine from Mercedes-Benz with a power of 501 hp. estimated at 55 million rubles. The car was built in the USA and imported to Russia in the summer of 2018. In our country, it was slightly modified: they installed armored glass and an easily removable rectangular steering wheel. On this car, which is denied access to public roads due to its enormous width, we were able to ride and study it properly. It looks very serious and is even equipped with an imitation of a cannon with a laser sight.
