1. Supercar Blondie and Switzerland
Supercar Blondie is actually called Alexandra Hirschi. It was during a language stay spent in the canton of Bern as a teenager that this native Australian fell in love with the son of her host family. Nik Hirschi has meanwhile become not only her husband, but also her manager. The couple has since settled in Dubai, but regularly travels back and forth to Switzerland. By the way, Supercar Blondie speaks a little Swiss German.
2. His first car
Before getting interested in the most exclusive supercars in the world, Alexandra drove a Mitsubishi Lancer, the first car with which the vlogger traveled the roads of Queensland.
3. A collection of exclusive cars
Apart from its Mitsubishi Lancer, Supercar Blondie has built up a nice little collection of exclusive cars, although it has already got rid of some models since. Among them, his Lamborghini Huracan LP610 and his BMW i8. She also has a Rolls-Royce Wraith BB in her garage, which she recently replaced with a rose-gold Rolls-Royce Ghost, however. Its fleet still includes a McLaren 720S in flashy camouflage and Ares Design Modena’s S1 hypercar. The youtuber has also already ordered a Tesla Cybertruck, but after all, who hasn’t?
4. She likes to give nicknames to her cars.
Who doesn’t love giving their car a nickname? Even Supercar Blondie can’t resist it. His first supercar, a Lamborghini LP610, was sweetly named Lucy. The Italian car has not only accompanied the youtuber since 2018 and has been part of many trips, but has also undergone some color changes over time. It is with love that she baptized her McLaren 720S Fury. According to some rumors, Fury would have already changed stables. The mystery remains as to what will add to the private collection of cars in Dubai.
5. She was a radio host
Before launching on YouTube, Alexandra Hirschi was a radio host. After studying journalism and economics at the Queensland University of Technology, she moved to Dubai, where she worked for nine years as a radio host and journalist on Dubai Eye 103.8. In 2018, she left her post to devote herself to her activity as a full-time youtuber.
6. Supercar Blondie was the first to drive the Devel Sixteen
A 5,000 hp hypercar concept, the Devel Sixteen is the work of a billionaire from the United Arab Emirates. The machine has been in development for years. It was not until 2018 that the general public was able to discover the car, during the tests carried out by Supercar Blondie, who had the great privilege of being the first person, outside the production company, to drive it. .
7. Exclusive video in the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is a rare beast among supercars. Limited to just nine units, one of these Italian racing cars is made entirely of carbon fiber. And it is precisely this model that Lamborghini sent some time ago by ship to Dubai for an exclusive test drive by Supercar Blondie. The problem was that the Veneno Roadster was not registered. It was only after a few days that Supercar Blondie obtained special permission to film and drive the car.
8. Highest-Paid Automotive Ambassador
Supercar Blondie is one of the highest paid online car ambassadors in the world. Her annual income is estimated at $1.4 million, thanks in particular to the number of followers who follow her on Instagram and Facebook.
9. The fastest growing automotive site
In 2018, Supercar Blondie’s Facebook page was the automotive site with the strongest growth on the social network. She now has 48 million followers there and this number continues to increase every day. On Instagram, Supercar Blondie is followed by more than ten million people and its YouTube channel also has more than nine million subscribers.
10. His opinion matters a lot
Supercar owners also like to have the opinion of Supercar Blondie, like that of the Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc, which absolutely wanted the youtuber to closely examine her unique and exclusive copy. To do this, he had his supercar airlifted to Dubai, so that Alexandra Hirschi could film it and comment on it. The Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc sets new standards in terms of luxury. This unique example is the result of the collaboration between Bugatti and the Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin. Part of the bodywork and the decoration of the vehicle was made of first choice porcelain.
11. The secret of his success
Apart from the fact that Alex lives in Dubai and is delivered the most exclusive supercars to her on a silver platter, the fact that the vlogger is so successful and stands out from her competitors is also due to other reasons. “Instead of just rating a car, I’m posting my own experience from a layman’s perspective. I am not an automotive journalist. I give insight into supercar culture and what it’s like to drive these incredible cars in a light and fun way,” says Alex Hirschi to describe his success. Often its content is exclusive and loaded with cool new tech, like the one used on the BMW iX that allows its body to change color.
