Supercar Driving Experience – What It’s Really Like
If superheroes - with their overwhelming superpowers - are the ultimate humans, then supercars - with their overwhelming horsepower - are the ultimate cars!
Getting behind the steering wheel of a supercar is a driving experience like no other. There is a sense of theatre and drama that is unparalleled; the sound of the engine singing, the throaty rasp of the exhaust and the sight of the scenery rushing by the windows. Nothing else on the road can provide such a sensory overload.
This is why supercars find themselves enshrined at the very top of the automotive pyramid. They offer the pinnacle of automotive engineering. There’s also breathtaking design, spectacular styling and bags of luxury too. Want the ultimate performance? Have it in the Nissan GT-R. Cutting edge technology and design? It’s yours in the Audi R8 V10! Opulent surroundings made from handcrafted materials? No problem, choose from a Bentley or an Aston Martin. It's hard to describe what it feels like to drive a supercar, but we'll try our best.
From the keenest petrol heads from Top Gear to the people who view cars as nothing more than a metal box to get them from place to place, everyone recognises a supercar when they see one. A supercar is unmistakable; you can spot a Lamborghini Huracan from a mile off. And once you’ve spotted a supercar, you don’t need to be an expert in cars to imagine the exhilaration to be found when spending time with a supercar.
In a supercar, you are King of The Road, because every road must bow at your feet. Mundane goes out the window as every journey becomes a story. Every stop-off an opportunity to get out and view a piece of automotive art that can be experienced first hand. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re doing it in style and turning heads along the way. Every destination becomes just a little bit more special, even if it's somewhere as stunning as the Peak District.
Pedal To The Metal
This is where the supercar comes alive. Foot down. Engine roaring. The world rushing by. Ultimately, supercars are made to go fast. That’s why the Ferrari 458 Spider has a 4.5-litre V8 engine, produces 562bhp, a 199 mph top speed and a 0-60 sprint time of 3.4 seconds. Big speed requires big power. After all, there is just something magical about driving a Ferrari, especially a red Ferrari.
Getting such high speed and performance also requires cutting-edge design and flawless attention to detail. There are downforce and aerodynamics to consider, weight saving and power output too. Diffusers, splitters, rear wings, turbochargers, superchargers, dual clutch systems, and all-wheel drive. Every aspect of a supercar is focussed on providing the driver with the ultimate driving performance when the time comes.
Put your foot down in a Porsche 911 GT3 and you’ll find all of those elements coming together in perfect symphony. The precise steering that lets you flow through corners effortlessly. The supreme grip that keeps you planted to the floor and able to transfer all of that power straight from the drivetrain to the road surface. Find a good road with a supercar and you’ll feel like the conductor of an orchestra. Every gesture and movement you make responded to perfectly, in a cacophony of noise and emotion. It's an unforgettable experience.
More Than Just Speed
Thanks to advancements in technology, the modern supercar is able to do more than just drive fast. There’s bundles of safety technology and a variety of driving modes, to help you get the most out of the car no matter the road conditions. Supercars are now accessible. Open to everyone and everything.
Performance is still the top requirement for a supercar, but it no longer comes at the expense of comfort. So when you’ve got your foot planted, you’ll still be traveling in complete luxury. The Lamborghini Huracan Spyder, for example, has an entertainment system, digital dashboard, climate control, Sat Nav and electronically adjustable seats.
Supercars are more than vehicles, they’re a lifestyle. They ooze glitz and glamour. Add a supercar to the mix and you have the unique ability to take an ordinary situation and make it extraordinary. Every endeavour becomes an event. For passenger and driver alike.
Off to a motorsports event with friends? Swing through the drive through on the way home for the fastest of fast food! Daughters prom night? Help her turn up in style and drop her off in a Bentley Continental GT. Weekend away? Travel like James Bond in the ultimate grand tourer, the Aston Martin Vanquish.
Whether you’re a daily driver or a weekend warrior, a supercar becomes an intrinsic part of your life. Your driving license becomes a license to thrill. Driving is no longer a means of transport, it’s an event in its own right. From the start of the engine, it's an emotive experience to be indulged and enjoyed at every opportunity.
A great way of making the best possible use of a supercar is via a driving experience day. Organized activities help wring the most from a supercar as they’re designed to provide the perfect environment for the ultimate driving thrill.
