This Uber Killer Wants To Drive You Around In A Lambo…For £5
While all that was going on, another ride-hailing service called miwhip (“my whip” — get it?) came out of left field, announcing their desire to drive ride-hailers around in luxury sports cars like Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and whatever the hell else the heart desires.
But as usual, there’s a caveat…
Not going to call it a bait-and-switch, but here’s what Forbes wrote on their Instagram:
A new Uber rival in London, miwhip, lets you travel in gold supercars, and trips can cost as little as £5.
The ride-sharing app launched at the end of last month with an Austin Powers villain-worthy Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 488, Rolls Royce Ghost II, Mercedes G Wagon and McLaren 720s.
Within 48 hours of receiving the private hire operator license from Transport for London, miwhip spent over £1.5 million on supercars.
Miwhip takes 10% less commission than their competitors and offers daily cash outs as an homage to the five cofounders’ father, who was a mini-cab driver who worked to juggle work and family life.
