YouTube car enthusiast Alex ‘Supercar Blondie’ Hirschi has revealed why the new 2020 Ford GT is one of her favorite hypercars and why it is so exclusive.

Supercar Blondie has managed to build a massive following of over 3.8 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she documents her experiences with tons of the most expensive vehicles around.

The popular YouTuber is no stranger to getting her hands on new or exclusive hypercars for her videos and, in her latest upload on June 27, she revealed one of her favorite ones yet.

Supercar Blondie explained that the 2020 Ford GT was one of her favorite hypercars.

Supercar Blondie revealed that she managed to get a full look at the 2020 Ford GT and even took it for a short spin, highlighting many of its impressive features.

“I’m here in one of my favorite, ever, hypercars. I’m going to show you what makes this car so special,” she revealed, sharing a look at the car’s exterior.

She explained, shortly after, that one of the biggest factors in what made it her favorite cars was not even its specs, but the fact that it was extremely exclusive among car collectors.

Hirschi added that even if someone had more than enough money to purchase one of the new 2020 GT’s, they would still have to be selected by Ford after submitting an application.

“What makes this car so incredibly unusual is that you have to apply to own one of these cars, now even if you had all the money in the world you still cannot just go and buy one. Ford Motors has to give you that allocation,” Supercar Blondie revealed.

The YouTube star later admitted that the car’s design was also among some of her favorites and added that it was quite different from Ford’s traditional range of car models.

She also revealed that while the Ford GT would cost any car collectors, who were lucky enough to be selected, over $500,000 at retail price, she estimated that second-hand GT’s could easily sell for over $1 million with how exclusive they are.

The Weeknd’s $3m car collection is fitting for a music icon

The Weeknd is one of the standout musicians of this generation, with several number-one hits. It turns out true to his music, he loves fast cars, and his car collection is enough to make anyone jealous.

One of the standout lines from Abel Makkonen ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye’s number-one single ‘Starboy’ is “we don’t pray for love, we just pray for cars.” It seems that the Weeknd got what he was asking for, as his garage reads like an A-list gathering of exotic cars.

From supercars to luxury vehicles, the Weeknd’s car collection is certainly one to be jealous of; We’ve picked out some of the highlights for you to enjoy.

The Weeknd’s supercar collection

Many fans wondered if the McLaren P1 he sings about in Starboy is his. Well, it turns out he does indeed own the orange McLaren P1 seen in the video. This $1.2 million, 903hp hypercar forms part of the ‘holy trinity’ of hypercars, along with the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918.

Clearly, the P1 is Abel’s favorite of the trio, as it found a place inside his incredible custom-built, mirror-floored garage.

Alongside his P1, he also owns another outlandish supercar – a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. This extravagant Lamborghini packs 690hp from its naturally-aspirated V12 engine. Costing over $517,000 the SVJ is one of the most extreme road-going Lamborghinis ever made.

Abel Tesfaye’s exotic cars

As well as his enviable garage of supercars, The Weeknd also has a number of luxurious ‘exotic’ vehicles to complement his brash, visceral performance car collection.

One particular highlight is his Bentley Mulsanne. This ultra-plush ride is equally suited to driving and being driven in. Costing just over $300,000, it is likely that The Weeknd’s Mulsanne is blue, judging by the line “I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition” in the song Starboy.

Alongside the Bentley, he also reportedly owns an AMG G63. A typical celebrity’s car, the G63 blends off-road performance with incredible power from its twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 577hp.

He also apparently has a love for the more ‘retro’ things in life too, as Abel reportedly owns a classic 1980’s Porsche 911. While exact details on this car aren’t clear, there’s no doubt it looks stunning sat next to his modern collection.

While his collection isn’t the biggest, nor the most expensive at around the $3m mark, it’s fair to say anyone would be envious. He clearly loves his cars, as he sings about them often enough!
