The Drive Of Your Life

For car lovers the world over, there is a thirst to drive a super car.  Whilst for most people, owning such a car is a pipe dream (either due to financial reasons or practical purposes), being able to drive one can fulfil a number of fantasies.

Imagine a man who wants to impress the love of his life (apologies for the stereotyping here, but let’s face it, it’s a typical scenario).  What better way to impress her than by whisking her away for a date in a Lamborghini or Ferrari.  For those who have read the recent summer best seller ’50 Shades of Grey’, the way to a girl’s heart appears to be taking her on a date in an Audi R8…and then subsequently purchasing her one.

Whilst this might not be a realistic option for many men wishing to impress their better halves, it is undoubtedly impressive.

Fortunately, these days, it is possible to almost reach this pipe dream. Everyone knows about the driving experience days available at Silverstone and other racing tracks, where it is possible to drive a super car in a ‘safe environment.’  However, this is usually not as much fun as having full control on an open road.  On the racing tracks, the time is usually limited, and the driver is guided by an instructor. This doesn’t always provide the driver with the full experience of the super car.

An alternative to this, for the car enthusiast, is to rent a super car for a day or the weekend. This way, it can be driven on open roads, and it gives the driver a chance to really enjoy the car. It can also be used as part of a fuller experience, such as taking it for a drive as part of a planned day out.  For dates where the man really wants to impress, this could be a great solution.

However, there are a few things to bear in mind. When hiring such a car, consider insurance costs and the costs of hiring. It certainly won’t be as cheap as renting a Fiat Punto from Malaga Airport.

But when compared with the overall cost of buying such a car, rental fees can be a drop in the ocean.

Don’t forget it’s possible to buy day experiences for any car enthusiast as a gift or for a special day such as a wedding or significant birthday. Most people choose a limousine or a large luxury saloon to arrive at their wedding, how about arriving in luxury in a super car?
