Supercar ownership can be expensive. Even the regular service bills of a Ferrari or Lamborghini could go in thousands. Maintaining an exotic can easily burn a hole in your pocket but have you ever wondered how much it costs to maintain a $10 million-plus McLaren F1?
Bruce Weiner is an entrepreneur based in Atlanta. He has a collection supercars and has in the past owned a 1994 McLaren F1.
It had received a full service when he bought the car and even the consumables like the tires were in good condition. However, when he got the car inspected by McLaren, he was told that his F1 needed a new fuel cell and a new set of tires even though they had just 100 miles on them.
The total bill was a whopping $250,000 out of which $50,000 was just the tires. Well, a new set of rubber cost $7000. I will let Bruce explain you why was McLaren charging an additional $47,000 for a just a tire change.
