AUDI R8 V10 If you’re hungry for a gorgeous, driver- friendly and quick as lightning vehicle, the new release update to the R8 delivers. Consider your wish granted. FERRARI 488 GTB OR SPIDER The successor to the adored 458 Italia sees the eager-revving and naturally aspirated V8 retired, in favour of a brand new turbocharged powerplant. This weapon will propel you from 0 - 100 in just 3.0 seconds.
LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP700 - 4 With a top speed listed simply as ‘more than 350km/hr’, the Aventador LP700 - 4 is brutally powerful and obscenely flamboyant.
LAMBORGHINI HURACAN LP610 - 4 The Huracan is a fantastic combination of fast, loud and sharp. With an ingenious four wheel drive system, the LP-610 offers some seriously accessible performance. MCLAREN 570S Be warned: while there are many fast cars out there, few have the performance capabilities that require drivers to up their game so profoundly. Are you ready? MERCEDES AMG GTS With a dauntingly low driving position, way back over the rear axle, the devastatingly handsome GTS draws heavily on the lauded SLS. An agile yet comfortable grand tourer that will surprise and delight. PORSCHE 911 TURBO For decades, the 911 Turbo has been the stuff of legend - a title it continues to claim today.
Comfortable and capable in all situations, this precision instrument remains a timeless inclusion on our tours.
FERRARI 458 SPIDER Simply one of the greatest supercars ever created, the Spider adds opentop thrills to the already fantastic chassis and engine of the 458. Drop the roof, depress the loud pedal and hear it scream. JAGUAR F - TYPE R Perhaps the best-looking coupe of the modern era, this blistering machine features an insane supercharged 5.0L V8 that has been described as sounding like ‘a jackhammer choir’. ASTON MARTIN DB11 Labelled as the most important Aston in the marque’s history, the DB11 is a supremely sophisticated blend of hypermodern road-crushing technologies and old-school Gran Tourer charm.
