Popular YouTuber Archie Hamilton has explained why he’s selling his “dream car” in the form of the Range Rover Sport SVR and it’s not because of the “scary” cost he’s mentioned before.
The YouTuber and racing driver, who has been behind the wheel of some of the most highly sought after cars, took some time to explain the “scary” cost of keeping the Range Rover Sport SVR on the road back on January 5.
He revealed that he dropped £9,000 in finance to make the purchase happen before noting that just to own it costs £900 a month – with an additional £400 a month in fuel costs. However, the vehicle is no longer going to be a burden to him as he’s explained his reasons for selling it off.
During his aptly titled 'Why I’m selling my Range Rover SVR' video, the YouTuber revealed that ever since he made the purchase and started creating content around his “dream car,” his fans haven’t been wholly receptive.
“It’s easy to say ignore that [the response] but I didn’t ignore that because I want my followers to enjoy my cars as much as I do,” the YouTuber said. “I wouldn’t be able to do this everyone who watches my videos and I want them to love the car I drive and it was adamant from day one that people didn’t want the Range Rover Sport SVR.”
After explaining that he reads all the comments, with a lot of the top ones being negative words like “boring,” Hamilton further noted that it had “put a dampener” on owning the car, even though he’s not the victim because he’s still driving a “seriously nice” set of wheels.
The YouTuber also said that because he’s in the business of making unique content, he got the feeling that the car wasn’t “unique enough” while rubbishing any claims that he’s selling it because he can’t afford the eye-watering costs and explaining that it’s all about making the fans happy.
What he has got lined up next, though, remains a bit of a secret as Archie teased that he has got cars coming in the next few months that are rather exciting.
