Finding a vendor or a supercar “store” near you can actually be difficult. Generally there are only 2 or 3 in a country and if you live far from a major city, then you will have a difficult time.
As we mentioned most people don’t have the facility to purchase supercars from vendors directly, so instead just take to the internet. Although we never recommend buying a supercar directly from the brand or official website. AKA don’t go to Ferrari.com to buy a california, instead take to websites like ebay.co.uk or simply use Google to find one in your country. “Supercar Type in Location” search string.
This question could go on for hours, but in our experience you want to start in the middle. And also obviously base it on your personal budget. If you have £100,000 to spend, remember you might need support, servicing, insurance, and all of the add-ons they will convince you into getting. The question of old vs new or classic vs modern as it is referred to now is another interesting discussion. Do you decide to go for a machine that is going to be classic or timeless or are you going for something with extreme precision and accuracy… The decision is up to you.
Although you probably won’t think about this when you are considering a supercar, it does bare discussion, in as much as you will need to remember that newer models will actually get you less proportionally than classic ones in 1-5 years time. This is due to older models becoming antiques and collectibles. Newer models will likely loss a third of the value as soon as you drive them home….
Don’t listen to the sales pitch
Have you ever noticed that Aston martins, Ferraris, Lambos, and all the supercar companies never run ads? That’s because their audience doesn’t look at ads, their audience is the ones creating the ads in the first place, the advertising company’s CEO owns a Ferrari, the business getting the ad created has an Aston and so on…. So you will never see any offers. But you will get the sales pitch, it will just be based around quality, rather than monetary offers. Also remember that the top supercar agencies can hire some of the top salesmen and women. 5% of a ferrari is more than 5% of your average Fiat!
Stay Safe Online
My final tip is to stay safe online, don’t pay online without seeing the car in person and always use a secure payment method with legal contracts. You might have to spend £500 on legal fees and contracts but you will save yourself thousands in the long run if anything goes wrong.
