Five Stereotypes of Super Car Buyers

There are those who spend every waking hour deciding which shade of yellow expresses their midlife crisis, those who obsess over car valuation, and those who actually just like nice cars. We’re inclined to see the latter as being closest to the truth…

The one who thinks bigger is better

Hummer - PB Supercars

Perhaps the most common, and laughed at stereotype is of the supercar buyer who simply believes that the bigger or more brash their car is, the more likely they might be to attract a member of the opposite sex. A Hummer for example, in the mind of such a person would achieve this end goal. In reality, this probably isn’t the truth and will if anything, work for the opposite.  In reality we know that 99% of supercar buyers aren’t like this but there is something quite amusing in imagining the mindset of such a person with that purpose…

“Daddy’s money”

Daddy's money

This is when you cannot understand how this youth can afford the Porsche they’re stepping out of. Initially, you might assume he is a young sporting professional who earns a healthy sum that allows them to splash the cash. Then, reality hits and you draw the envious conclusion that one (or both) of his parents are rather well off and have somehow managed to bribe an insurance company into letting them on a policy.

“… and on that bombshell”

Microphone

Those who for some reason, believe they’re the presenter on a popular car programme. They might be slightly offensive at times, and shout and talk louder than is necessary. In reality, there is only three of these known and that means that it truly is a stereotype and isn’t what to expect from the everyday supercar buyer.

Number 10 on the back of his shirt

Bentley Continental GT - PB Supercars

You live in Cheshire and have a big car and a pay packet to match. This would be a footballer perhaps. A Bentley continental might spring to mind? However, we’re at a loss as to why this is a negative stereotype. It ought to be the opposite. These people tend to have a great taste in cars, leave them be!

The one you don’t give a chance

Working hard

This one is just the person who has worked and wants a nice car. If this is the case, why not let them make a statement? Why shouldn’t they focus on car valuations? They care and therefore are true petrol-heads, if anything they just want to brag!

Most Expensive Cars Sold at Auction

You may think that an auction is a great place to grab a bargain – especially when it comes to big-ticket items like cars – but sometimes auctions can throw up some massive values.

Here are the top 5 most expensive cars ever sold at auction. Perhaps unsurprisingly, four out of the top five are Ferrari’s which is a testament to the legacy of the Italian brand.

1.1962 Ferrari 250 GTO – $38,163,000 (£31,116,383)

Ferrari-250-GT)

In August 2014 one of the 250 GTOs manufactured went to auction at Bonhams in California. Nominated as the top sports car of all time on many occasions and often referred to as the greatest Ferrari of all time, the GTO sold for a staggering $38million – making it the most expensive auctioned car of all time.

2. 1957 Ferrari 335S – $35,711,000 (£29,117,133)

Ferrari-335S

Only 4 of these powerful Ferrari’s were ever made which makes it no surprise that when one went to auction in Paris at Artcurial in February 2016, there was a lot of interest.

Made in 1957-8 these cars were built to compete with the Maserati 450S which was more powerful than any Ferrari at the time. The 335S had a 4 liter V12 engine capable of producing 390 horsepower. The car has its place in history as part of the accident in the 1957 Mille Miglia which led to the cancellation of the race thereafter.

3. 1954 Mercedes-Benz W196 – $30,120,00 (£24,558,485)

Mercedes-Benz-W196

The Mercedes-Benz W196 was produced to race in the 1954/55 Formula 1 seasons. It was extremely successful winning 9 out of 12 races and winning the World Championship in both seasons it competed.

Given it’s racing heritage, it drew a huge amount of interest when it went under the hammer at Goodwood in the UK in July 2013, eventually selling for just over $30million. Interestingly, the engine used in the W196 included mechanical advancements first used in the Messerschmitt Bf 109E fighter plane during World War II.

4. 1956 Ferrari 290MM – $28,050,00 (£22,870,701)

Ferrari-290MM

The 290MM was produced by Ferrari to race in the 1956 Mille Miglia – which it won. It was only ever produced in four units and enjoyed great success in the racing world, winning the Swedish GP and granted Ferrari victory on the World Sportscar Championship.

A racing thoroughbred, this was truly one for the collectors and there was a lot of interest when one went to auction in Sothebys New York in December 2015 with the car eventually selling for $28million.

5. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4*S NART Spider – $27,983,000 (£22,816,072)

Ferrari-275-GTB

This was the first Ferrari to be fitted with a transaxle, making it a valuable part of Ferrari’s history and one that will fit nicely into any enthusiast’s collection.

At least that’s what the public thought when it went to auction at Sothebys in California in August 2013 when it sold for almost $28million. The 275 was produced in GT, Roadster and Spider form with the GTS Roadster featuring at number three in Motor Trend Classic’s top ten Ferrari’s of all time.
