If you are a car fan in any way, then the idea of hiring a supercar is likely on your bucket list. With their sleek looks, amazingly quick engines and even little touches like fancy private number plates and outlandish colours, these are the cream of the crop when it comes to cars. And while many of us can have our own personalised number plate, most of us won’t own a supercar. But you can hire one – so what are the most popular?
Lamborghinis have the classic supercar looks perfected and none more so the Huracan. This is a car with an impressive 5.2 litre engine and also a four-wheel drive that allows for the best handling and speed. It is also filled with the latest smart car technology to help make the experience as easy as possible.
This Lamborghini is a little harder to find than its cousin the Huracan but is always popular when available. It has the classic growl of the supercar with its V12 engine and huge exhaust system. With a top speed of 202 mph and 690bhp, this is a car that has all the gadgets and interior looks more like a jet than a simple road car.
Ferrari 488 Spyder
This is one of the latest creations from the Italian supercar giant and has the Retractable Hard Top for those sunny days. It is the most powerful version of the Spyder than Ferrari have created with a 3.9 litre V8 engine that can reach a top speed of 202 mph and go from 0-60 in 3 seconds.
Audi R8 V10 Plus Spyder
Audi’s entrant into the supercar competition is an impressive one with a 10 cylinder supercar based on the Lamborghini Gallardo. It can reach 60 mph in just four seconds and has a top speed of 193 mph. Its use of space age lightweight materials also makes the car very easy to handle.
Bentley Continental GT
If you want comfort and style, then the Bentley is the car to consider. This is one of the ultimate in luxury cars and while it might not look as sleek as some of the others, it is every bit as powerful, with a top speed of 198 mph and reaches 60mph in just 4.3 seconds. It also offers an eight speed gear box and four wheel drive option.
Aston Martin DB9
Forever associated with the James Bond movies, this is the first car to be built in the new UK facility for Aston Martin and has the perfect balance of comfort and style. With 450bhp and a top speed of 186 mph, this is no slouch in terms of performance and brings with it the ‘cool’ factor of pretending to be a super spy.
Choosing the right car
There’s no right or wrong answer to the question of which supercar to hire. It is all about your taste, what appeals and also what you feel confident handling. Also, think about where you want to go with the car and how much you want to spend on the experience to get the most from it.
