Art to some, speed, technology, supreme bragging rights to others.
The Hypercar has become a topic of great debate and concern.
Very recently, an LA-based airline flew 17 Hypercars from Los Angeles to Macau; the airline’s VIP cargo was worth an estimated $100 million.
Included within the freight shipment was a McLaren Speedtail. McLaren Speedtail was their first-ever Hyper-GT and the fastest McLaren to date.
Additionally, it also included several Koenigsegg Regeras, a LaFerrari, a Porsche 918 Spyder, one Pagani Huayra BC, a Bugatti Chiron, an Aston Martin One-77 and a Gunther Werks Porsche 911, a Lamborghini Centenario to name but a few.
Hauling a $100 million Hypercars is not an everyday event for an airline; in fact, in 2018, the Gumball Rally moved a similar value payload.
However, they used two planes; this latest gargantuan air freight used a single plane.
I feel their insurers sighed a sense of relief following the safe landing; now, all they have to worry about is the return journey; who’d be an underwriter?
JP Logistics of Los Angeles, which specialises in enclosed car transport for classic, exotic, and luxury vehicles, is responsible for this monstrous exercise.
The make of the aeroplane is a mystery; if anyone has more information about the plane, please do not hesitate to update me.
