Would You Buy This 2015 Lambo Huracan With Almost 200,000 Hard Miles?
You can go to eBay right now and buy this 2015 Lambo Huracan at a pretty reasonable price. At least for a Huracan. That is until you see its mileage and know its background. So, would you buy this 2015 Lambo Huracan with almost 200,000 hard miles if you had an extra $130,000? That’s about half the price of a new one. And it comes with a title: “WORLD’S Highest Mile Huracan.”
In the less than five years of its existence, this 2015 Huracan has traveled more than 100 miles a day. How could the owner put that many miles on this car that quickly? It has only had a single owner who purchased it at the end of September 2015. The images on eBay show an odometer reading 187,768 miles well-traveled.
Can you imagine what this 2015 Lambo Huracan has been through?
But looking over the eBay listing you immediately know how this happened. It is owned by Royalty Exotic Cars. They are an exotic car rental company in Las Vegas, Nevada. So not only does this Huracan have almost 190,000 miles on the ticker but you know those were 190,000 hard miles. Real hard miles. Like Nissan Sentra rental car miles. Can you imagine what this Lambo has been through?
Our first thought was how many tires this must have had? Our second thought was kudos to Lambo for building an exotic car to take this many hard miles. Can we be honest? When you see a Ferrari or Lambo you just know that car might be driven 5,000 miles a year at the most. Probably a lot less. It’s the nature of exotics.
And when an exotic car reaches a certain mileage or age or both the costs start to skyrocket. Some Ferraris require the engines to be removed to change clutches or do other services. So how has this Huracan fared so well without it costing its owners hundreds of thousands of dollars at different intervals?
We’d be putting some hard miles on it too for as long as we had it.
According to the Royalty Exotic Car website rentals don’t have a mileage limit. Once you’re buckled in you’re golden for as long as you rented your car. And yes, we’d be driving the heck out of it for as long as we had it. Wouldn’t you?
We suspect that with Vegas almost empty from the COVID-19 pandemic no one is renting anything. In fact, last week rental giant Hertz filed for bankruptcy protection. So maybe this sale was prompted by slow or no rentals?
The 2015 Huracan looks to be in incredible condition for its mileage
But at least in the eBay images the Huracan looks to be in incredible condition for its mileage. The interior looks almost perfect. So does the engine compartment. But you’d guess if it looked like a heap no one would want to rent it, so this makes sense. And we’d suspect it had to have been maintained extremely well to survive almost five years of continuous abuse.
At half-price it almost seems like it would be worth it. The V10 engine has probably been rebuilt a couple of times. Things like brakes, bearings, and regular servicing have all been handled or replaced. So internally it could be somewhat new.
Someday you’ll remember this car and its price and wish you had figured out a way to buy it. Because by then Huracans will be going for a million dollars or more. And this $130,000 price will seem like a give-away no matter how many miles it has. You know it!
