Do you know you could get behind the wheel of your dream supercar for the cost of a decent meal out?
There are many companies out there that let you rent a sports car, you’ll pay around £300 for a day’s rental plus a deposit that you can pay on your credit card. You’re given the keys and then off you go, the open road and your ultimate supercar. Just make sure you don’t damage it…otherwise you could lose that security deposit.
Some companies offer an insurance waiver, these normally cost another £50/100 depending on the supplier. It’s a hefty price to pay but it’s better than losing a couple of grand if someone prangs your temporary pride and joy.

A company called Motion Drive Rental in Germany also offer an Autobahn experience. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to drive a supercar at top speed on public roads you can now experience it for yourself.
You can take to the ‘bahn for 80 minutes on unrestricted roads for just €699 in a Porsche 911. Fancy something a little more exotic? An Aventador will set you back €1,999 or if you’re really feeling flush what about taking a Bugatti Veyron out for €14,999….pricey.
Maybe closed tracks are more your thing? Driving laps at world famous race circuits can cost just a few hundred quid, maybe Silverstone piques your interest. Or you can even rent cars to hammer around the Nurburgring with certain companies.
Confidence not quite there? Passenger laps are a great way to experience the speed of a race track with a professional racing driver. Taxi laps around the ‘ring are a great way to get on track in relative safety.
Whether it’s a skid pan to test out your car control, or racing down the Autobahn weaving through traffic there are companies out there offering experiences to suit all your wants and needs.
So get saving and make sure you keep an eye on their deposit small print…just in case.
