Cars of Rodeo Drive: wheels that fit but don’t blend

Posted by:

Fame. Wealth. Celebrities. Fashion. These are the words often associated with Rodeo Drive, the two-mile-long street in Beverley Hills and simultaneously an embodiment of style and luxury.

A luxurious road demands a luxurious car. Indeed, luxurious cars have become imperative for car lovers at Rodeo Drive. Yet, because of this imperative, luxurious wheels are blending in easier each time.

Driving a Ferrari on Rodeo Drive can be as normal as driving the latest BMW in New York.

Are you one of those people who seek more than just a fitting-yet-not-blending luxury car? If so, let us open the catalog of luxurious vehicles focusing on a very specific type of wheels: the exotic ones!

Exotic cars have an element of an enigma within. They are often made by foreign producers which adds to the mystery. These wheels extend an invitation for you to explore and discover their power.

The mere fact that their number is limited adds to the pleasure of ownership. Not to mention that they can be customizable, which further fuels the adrenaline of driving them around the perfect city and street – Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive.

Bringing exotic wheels home

Before finding the right exotic car, you must also consider a very important question: How to bring it to Rodeo Drive safe and sound, without adding any extra miles and depreciation! This requires what in the auto industry we call white-glove service.

Exotic cars are a sensitive cargo, so we always recommend an enclosed auto-transport service that offers more protection against potentially damaging external elements. And to avoid seeing even the slightest traces of road dust on your exotic ride, request a hard-sided carrier.

Also, you would not want any scratches on the sides of your beauty, thus the transporter should use soft tie-downs. To transport an exotic car one should look for a reliable licensed auto transport company, which will also provide adequate insurance during shipping.

Corsia Logistics, equipped with experienced drivers and expertise, ships luxury and exotic cars nationwide. For more advice on auto transport services and costs, do not hesitate to give us a call or request a quote online.

Some of our favorite exotic rides

If the usual luxury cars do not quench your thirst for adventure, let’s look at exotic wheels which can serve you perfectly depending on your taste and budget.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

Are you into sports cars? After the previous Agera S, the new version of the Swedish car automaker pushes all boundaries to produce a powerful, yet stylish supercar.

It is a Two-door, two-seater with a removable hardtop and its body is made from pre-impregnated carbon fiber/kevlar and lightweight sandwich reinforcements.

The engine has been optimized for regular pump gas and now puts out an incredible 1160 bhp. That’s an astonishing 232 bhp per liter with perfect reliability.

The Agera RS can also be configured to run on E85 for even higher power levels, while the engine management system offers the ability to adjust on-the-fly to any fuel mix at any given time.

There have been only 25 of such cars produced so far, and 10 have already been pre-ordered.
As a recently produced exotic beast, with plenty of mysteries to be unraveled, the Swedish beauty would definitely stand out on Rodeo Drive!

Thermal Orange Pearl NSX

Manufactured in the US as ACURA NSX, this car strives for an emotional drive, maintaining its principle of “Form Follows Function”. The Orange Pearl NSX revitalizes the past, but at the same time is forward-looking. Beautifully designed and punctiliously engineered.

The 2019 NSX is propelled by a Sports Hybrid SH-AWD® power unit consisting of a twin-turbocharged mid-mounted V6 engine paired with a 9-speed dual clutch transmission (9DCT).

An electric Direct Drive Motor integrated with the engine and 9DCT supplements the engine with instantaneous electric torque. It also contains two additional electric motors, bringing the notion of exotic to a hybrid level.

Engineered seating and steering are complemented by minimalist materials, creating a cockpit that balances secure, ergonomic support and freedom of movement.

With such an unconventional exotic car and not to mention the unconventional bright color, you will definitely be spotted. You will most probably end up in tourist-taken pictures while steering this NSX on Rodeo Drive!

Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti Chiron is considered to be among the best of Bugatti exotic cars produced so far: it is the fastest, most powerful, and of exclusive production.

As you may know, Bugatti is a French brand specialized in high-performance vehicles, launched on the market for the first time in 1909, designed by the Italian Ettore Bugatti and constructed in the then-German region Alsace. The company’s vehicles nowadays are produced in Molsheim, France.

Are you a speed lover? The Chiron is THE car for you then! It will accelerate from 0-62mph in less than 2.5 seconds, 0-124mph in less than 6.5 and 0-186mph in under 13.6. That’s 2.9 seconds faster than a P1 and a second quicker than the Veyron Super Sport.

However, speed has a hefty price tag: £1.9m! If your budget goes beyond six digits, then it is worth a dare.

Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé

Feeling a bit more vintage-oriented? Then the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé is your answer!
Rolls Royce is an exotic car with a successful history that goes back a century ago.

Replacing the original Silver Ghost, the Phantom was built in Derby, England, and Springfield, Massachusetts in the United States.

The idea of the initial car was for its size to be big enough to transport a big party. The later Drophead version was made smaller with not much legroom in the backseat. This is one Rolls-Royce where the front is the preferred place to sit.

In-car storage is surprisingly limited, aside from twin gloveboxes. However, the trunk space is big enough for a couple’s holiday luggage. It opens in two sections, with the lower half folding down to form a bench seat for picnicking.

The real beauty of this socialite car is in the ease of driving. The driver’s seat offers a view typical for a 4×4, the steering is way easier, and the acceleration feels natural and effortless. Reminiscing the silver ghost maybe? I mean literally! Who said big cars are not fun to drive?

Of course, such a car is quite thirsty. Given the Phantom’s 6.75-liter engine and 2.6-tonne curb weight, it’s hardly surprising that it averages just 19 miles per gallon.

Then again, for someone who can afford a car like this the cost to make those exotic wheels move won’t be an issue. Also, thanks to its 80-liter tank, the Phantom can cover a respectable 300 miles between fuel stops.

Already considering some of these choices?

Depending on your budget and preferences, your choice will vary. Yet, all these luxury cars have one thing in common – they are high-end and original. What is more important: they will stand out while on Rodeo Drive so you don’t blend in!

Now, whether it is a sharp edge design vs. smooth curves; a smaller vs. larger car; a futuristic looking supercar vs. an elegant ride with a vintage touch; a darker vs. bright color; a lighter hybrid vs. a heavier fuel engine….what more can we say…it all is a matter of your taste!!!

What we can say and do, though, is help you bring these wheels to Beverly Hills without a scratch, on a time record. Transporting these cars from Europe or anywhere in the U.S does not have to be a burden for you.

Corsia Logistics is always ready to assist you regardless of the place of transportation and the season. If you need more information about shipping exotic cars, just give us a call!
