However, this is one of the major reasons why many Nigerians do not popularly own them. There are so many things to put into consideration. Here are five supercars that will cost an arm and a leg to maintain in Nigeria.

Pagani Codalunga

The price of the Pagani Codalunga is $7.4 million in Naira; that’s over a billion Naira just to own the car. So, it’s not surprising that owning this car in Nigeria will bring a lot of financial headaches. One, every part of the Pagani is rare to find. Two, there are no expert repairers of the car in Nigeria, and car parts for the Pagani Codalunga are only gotten through shipping. Owning the Pagani in Nigeria is a risky move.

Koenigsegg CC850

When the Koenigsegg CC850 was produced, only 50 units were made available. This means that this supercar is a rare breed that cannot be found just anywhere. Yearly maintenance alone will cost somewhere around ₦7,000,000. 

The car comes with carbon wheels with Michelin Cup 2R tires that set owners back with $110,000, and they have to be replaced every couple of years. So, if this car were to be owned by a Nigerian, they’ll be spending around ₦7,000,000 yearly, and in the years they have to replace the carbon wheels, that’s an additional ₦70,000,000 million plus. That’s not even including shipping and possible customs fees.

Bugatti Chiron/Veyron

To change the oil and fluid of the Bugatti Veyron abroad, you’ll be spending around $25,0000. So, imagine you have to do the same in Nigeria; how much do you think it’ll cost? That’s not even including how rare the oil and fluid it uses might be in Nigeria.

The changing of oil and fluid is done every year, and that’s because the Veyron has 16 different drain plugs compared to just one you’ll find in regular cars. Not only that, the changing of oil and fluid is only done by a Bugatti technician, which the company personally flies out for that purpose.

So, if you owned the Bugatti Veyron in Nigeria, using this currency exchange rate, each year, you’ll be spending about ₦18,000,000 million just to change your car’s oil and fluid.

That’s not all. If you need to change the car’s windshield, it costs $60,000, and replacing the brakes costs $118,000. The replacement of the turbochargers costs $26,000. That’s a lot of money to be spent on maintenance alone.

Ferrari LaFerrai

The LaFerrari is an expensive car to maintain. Maintaining it in Nigeria will cost you millions of Naira a year. For the repair of one front tire, you could spend about ₦300,000 on each. Four tires will cost somewhere around ₦1,200,000. If you want to replace the car brake, just know you’ll be shipping it from abroad, which will cost about ₦20,000,000 or less.

This Mercedes Project One supercar is the dream of many that only a few can afford. The vehicle is road legal with an F1 engine that produces 1,000 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain. Regular checkup for this car costs up to $2.7 million. In Naira, that alone runs into billions for checkups. To maintain this Mercedes supercar, the cost is higher than the actual buying price of the car.

Conclusion

The work of owning a supercar begins after you must have purchased it. The work is even tripled in places like Nigeria, where there are few supercar owners. So, before considering buying a supercar in Nigeria, ensure you can bear the weight of maintenance.
