Do you own a supercar such as a Ford GT or a McLaren? Classic Auto Insurance now writes affordable, Agreed Value specialty insurance policies for these high performance supercars and more, including Bugatti, Audi R8, Dodge Viper, Lotus and Acura NSX.
Why Do We Love Supercars?
The high performance is one reason. Design and power are two more. They purr. They are built to go very, very fast. No matter where, they attract plenty of attention. Some say they are the thoroughbreds of the automotive world. Owning one is a dream of a lifetime for so many avid car enthusiasts (we’re up to seven reasons). Regardless of whether you want one, they capture the imagination more than any type of automobile around.
Drivers Tend To Be Supercar Fanatics
Rumor has it high performance supercars appeal to driving fanatics even more than to car fanatics. You may yearn for a Mopar, but if you love to drive, you’re likely to pine for a supercar. Driving an unbelievably fast, ultra-handling car that sounds like “power” is the ultimate adrenaline rush. Just ask the Dubai Police Force.
Breaking Speed Traps And Taking Selfies
Even though the vehicles driven by police in Dubai are painted white and dark green with blue emergency lights, some of them are luxury and high performance supercars like the Austin Martin One-77, Audi R8, Bugatti Veyron, Dodge Viper, Ford Mustang GT, McLaren 65S, Porsche 918 and several types of BMW’s, Mercedes, a Jaguar, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and a Rolls-Royce Wraith, too. In 2017, Guinness World Records presents the Dubai Police Force with a certificate for having the world’s fastest police car in service – the Bugatti, with a top speed of 253 mph. Could a crook outrun a cop who drives a Veyron? Well, no – but that’s not the reason Dubai Police are driving them. They want to show tourists how friendly the police are in the UAE (United Arab Emirates). Not to mention the fact that many of the police officers who get to drive these high-end patrol cars specifically in tourist areas are women. Really, it’s a fascinating strategy worthy of supercars, wouldn’t you say?
The Need for Supercars
The advanced supercar engine could only be good for the entire automotive industry, in spite of questionable fuel efficiency. The ingenuity in braking performance is forever put to the test with a car that’s built for speed. Can you say, Carbon Ceramic brakes? Improvements in suspension and tire design can be traced back to the working solutions for the hard and rocky rides of early supercars. Can you say, aerodynamics? The fact engineers who develop supercars for racing are thinking up new ways to get a competitive advantage is a boom for us road warriors, because it usually translates into increased engine efficiency, among other things. Can you say, quick-shifting gearbox, intelligent traction control system, hybrids, electric cars? Vehicles and parts made from carbon fiber, aluminum, Kevlar and exotic composites all are used first in supercars and offer lighter weight and stronger impact resistance. Which brings us to new safety features, tested to their limits by supercar designers and introduced as cutting-edge technology to mainstream auto makers. All of this adds up to engineering innovation -the most universal thing about our love of supercars.
