What’s Exotic About an Exotic Car?

Many exotic vehicles are the pinnacle for car enthusiasts. But what exactly makes a car exotic? It's more than just the aesthetics and can leave many individuals wondering if there's much of a difference to luxury cars.

If you've discovered an exotic car you wish to take home, what is the best way to transport it? This guide will take you through the ins and outs of exotic cars and why their high-performance technology and sleek designs set them above regular vehicles.

Let's find out more about exotic cars and how our team at A1 Auto Transport would successfully and hassle-free ship one to you from various locations worldwide.


What Are Exotic Cars?

Exotic cars are high-performance vehicles made to go faster than your average vehicle.

Typically, you'll see them as race cars or supercars due to their advanced engineering. This includes extraordinary speed, high-velocity power settings, and other unique designs that even luxury cars won't have.

If you're looking for an exotic car in the market, you must be quick or know a great retailer, as they're in limited production amounts. And as the price rises, in some cases, so does the demand.

For car enthusiasts, it could be a goal to source a specific exotic car, and for others, it may be a sign of wealth and status to be one of the very few to own a particular brand or series.

Exotic Car Characteristics

Typically, these cars have prestigious characteristics that ensure quality and rarity. Characteristics may include:

  • Impressive engines: Exotic supercars may be best suited for driving on race tracks or areas with a lot of room to speed and drift. So, having a powerful engine can add to the experience of your drive.
  • Unique materials: Due to their price tag, you'll notice more unique materials like carbon fiber, titanium, gold, and even kevlar.
  • Streamlined design: Exotic cars tend to catch your eye. Generally, they have been crafted meticulously to be aerodynamic and have sleek features on the exterior and interior.
  • Attention to Detail: Exotic cars are built with meticulous attention to detail and high-quality materials. From the luxurious interiors to the flawless exteriors, these cars showcase the finest craftsmanship and superior build quality.
  • High Tech: These cars take things a step further with their advanced technology—for example, revolutionary adjustable steering wheel components.

Exotic car brands are the leading types of cars in the supercar market. They usually come from European supercar brands. So, if you're an exotic car consumer in the US, it may be tricky to source your favorite models in the country.

Thankfully, that's where we come in. We have an experienced team of shippers to help you bring your loved exotic car to you.

You can use our website to help determine an estimated price from the pickup location to where you'd like it delivered to give you peace of mind that your purchasing process is as stress-free as possible.

We've highlighted some well-known exotic car brands that we're able to transport successfully:

  • Aston Martin
  • Rolls Royce
  • Maserati
  • Bugatti
  • McLaren
  • Lamborghini
  • Porsche
  • Ferrari
  • Bentley

The Difference Between Luxury and Exotic Cars

There are a few main differences between luxury cars and exotic vehicles, which we outlined below:


Luxury high-end vehicles offer car enthusiasts everything from advanced safety features to the latest entertainment systems. They're more common as everyday cars on the roads than exotic cars, which some consumers may see as 'toys' to take out on special occasions.

Moreover, if you're looking for a long-distance drive, you can choose a luxury car as the seats allow you to relax, especially if you're on the passenger side. In contrast, some exotic race cars aren't that comfortable for longer journeys and may only have two seats.


As we mentioned, exotic cars can come in the form of supercars, which have a high-performance design and usage in mind. And because they are manufactured in limited numbers, consumers are more likely to want an exclusive vehicle despite the price tag or difficulties in acquiring it.

In comparison, luxury cars are designed with comfort in mind. They're not as rare, so you're more likely to find a dream luxury car and have the opportunity to add your additions to it, like changing the interior fabric, color, and technology systems.


You may be one of the few individuals in your state with an exotic car compared to a luxury vehicle. And that's the selling point that many car enthusiasts look for.

Additionally, exotic cars are great at making a statement, for example, driving them on special occasions or having them as a collector's item in your garage for your loved ones to enjoy. In contrast to luxury cars that are more familiar on the road.

Transporting Exotic Cars

Getting your car from A to B is simple with us at A1 Auto Transport. So, here are a few steps to give you an idea if you find your exotic car in a country of origin different from where you are.

Booking the Service

Once we've had our initial consultation, we will go over the necessary information and documents you need to transport your exotic car to you.

This includes a:

We Prepare Your Car

Depending on the location, our team can work with the seller to get your exotic car shipped to you. Our team knows how to appropriately secure the vehicle during transport to avoid weather hazards and other damage risks.

We'll then discuss delivery time, and using modern technology, you can monitor and track your car during the entire transit.


Choose How We Ship

This depends on the location of the vehicle. If it's within the US, we may recommend large enclosed vehicles that can safely load and unload your car.

However, if this is an international order, sea freight using a shipping container may be the better option.


Your exotic car will be ready within the time frame we provide. We'll know to avoid unnecessary traffic and delays on the road and give you a receipt once it's delivered.

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, exotic cars are what many car enthusiasts dream of. They have superior performance compared to luxury cars and are challenging to get hold of due to their limited quantities, which makes them more popular and sought after.

So, if you're interested in transporting your newly purchased exotic car, don't hesitate to choose a reputable shipping company like A1 Auto Transport.

We'll liaise with the seller and arrange pickup and transportation from the location to ensure it reaches you stress-free. Discover how we can assist you and your shipping needs by requesting a free online quote today.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
