Luxury cars are luxurious, but there is a lot more to them. Brands like Aston Martin, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, BMW, Audi, and Bentley don’t just add high-quality engines and surround sound systems to account for their high prices. They include over-the-top features that many of us would never have dreamed of before. If you want to experience an extravagant driving experience, luxury cars are available for rent in Las Vegas.
1. Lamborghini’s Origins
The Lamborghinis we know and love today have a surprising origin. Ferruccio Lamborghini, the company’s founder, started manufacturing tractors before he moved onto luxury vehicles. While running his tractor business, he purchased exotic cars, one of which was a Ferrari, with a damaged clutch. Fixing it inspired him to build the Lamborghini. Today it is one of the most iconic sports car companies out there.
2. Explosives in Lamborghini Doors
The Aventador’s doors were equipped with small explosives. While this sounds absurd, there is a good reason for this feature. If the car turned upside down in an accident, the explosives allow the door’s hinges to release and the driver to exit the vehicle.
3. Dubai’s Exotic Police Fleet
Dubai’s Police department has built up an arsenal of luxury cars over the past few years. These cars were reserved for special events instead of chasing criminals. The fleet includes notable cars such as the Bugatti Veyron, Bentley Continental GT, Aston Martin One-77, Ferrari FF, and Lamborghini Aventador to name a few.
4. Mini Bar in the Car
In 1957, the Cadillac Eldorado Brougham was one of the most luxurious cars of its time. Besides all the amenities, the most surprising was the mini bar in its glove compartment. The car was already impressive for its time, as it came equipped with electric windows and remotely adjustable mirrors. But the minibar addition made the Cadillac one of a kind.
5. BMW M5 Fake Engine Sounds
BMW was so successful with its noise cancellation technology that its engine was silent. The BMW M5 had to add artificial engine sounds through the stereo to give the driver the feel of driving a car.
6. James Bond’s Lifetime Supply of Aston Martins
James Bond’s latest star, Daniel Craig, has been provided with a proposition by Aston Martin. The luxury car brand announced that Daniel Craig could drive any Aston Martin at any time for the rest of his life. This arrangement meant he could take any model home and test drive the cars on track at full speed.
7. Bugatti Veyron’s Fuel Consumption Rate
The Bugatti Veyron became a reality after countless hours of testing and engineering feats and one of the fastest cars ever released. At its top speed of 410 km/h, the Veyron empties its 26-gallon fuel within 12 minutes.
