It’s pretty much common knowledge that if you acquire one of the latest hybrid hypercars on offer, you invest your money rather than simply spending them.
According to Magnitude Finance, a UK prestige vehicle specialist, the McLaren P1 is expected to be the first car whose value will never fall below its list price. The halo car of McLaren was produced in just 375 units, each priced at £866,000 or $1.15 million if you live on the other side of Atlantic.
The prestige vehicle specialist reports that P1s have been commanding already a £400,000 (about $600,000) premium over the list price on the second-hand market. “It’s quite staggering to think the P1’s value will only ever appreciate. Even recent hypercars like the Ferrari Enzo dipped below list price at certain points before bouncing back into positive equity”, said Tim Marlow, Director of Magnitude Finance.
“But we don’t expect this to ever be the case with the P1, evidence of which can be seen by our clients refusing an overnight £400,000 profit. This clearly demonstrates they think it will follow in the footsteps of the McLaren F1 and in time be worth millions of pounds”, Marlow added.
While it’s still pretty early to judge if the P1 will ever reach the same stratospheric levels of value with the F1, we are pretty sure that no one of the 375 owners will ever feel their wallets any lighter.
