Supercar Experience

A fleet of the very best supercars for you

Our roster of rev-counter busting motors really does read like the 'who's who' of the automotive world. If you ask any petrol head to write a list of which supercars would be parked in their fantasy garage, we can guarantee a fair few of our experience day drives would feature.

But what makes a car super? Is it purely based on speed and cost? We think there's a lot more to it than that. Sure, it has to be fast. So much so that by simply accelerating in first gear you could break the speed limit. And of course is has to have a reassuringly expensive price tag, but what else?

Supercars appeal to all the senses

We think it also has to be about appealing to the senses. All of them. There's the noise of the exhaust. It must burble purposefully whilst idling and roar into life when you give it just a light touch on the gas. After all, you can always hear one coming down the street, can't you?

The vehicle must also look the part. Automotive designers might tell you it's all about vehicle ergonomics and aerodynamics, but let's face it, the machine just has to look cool. That might mean wide and aggressive like an R8, or timeless and classic like a Porsche. Or it could simply be ‘wonderful, wonderful, wonderful’, just like the Aston Martin Vantage V12 Jeremy Clarkson drove on Top Gear - surely one of the most emotional car tests ever seen on TV?

What sets a real supercar apart from other high performance sports cars is the interior. This is where either the luxury comes in, or the sheer lack of it, makes it very special. When it comes to touch, the Italians are all about the velvety Alcantara seats, the Germans love carbon fibre and, forgive us, but there's something essentially British about a bit of silky smooth walnut and leather dash trim. And that's where smell also comes in too…

That straight out of the car showroom supercar smell!

As well as that distinctive straight-out-of-the-showroom waxed and polished aroma, when you're trackside you might add to that a whiff of burning rubber (extra points if you manage to get the tyres screeching during your laps!). Then there’s that hot engine and oil smell as the cars rolls back into the paddock having busted a few 100mph+ laps thanks to that impressive brake horsepower.

As for taste, well you can certainly taste the money when you sitting in the driver's seat of a supercar. Let's face it, most of us will never own one and the motor insurance annual premium will cost more than your own car is worth. They are notoriously rubbish when it comes to fuel consumption, only doing a shameful handful of miles per gallon.  And there's usually very little boot space (as most are rear-wheel drive). But we are fascinated and mesmerised by these brilliant driving machines and crave to get behind the wheel of one.

Intotheblue gives every car fan that chance with everything from short and sweet supercar experience blasts to full days out driving on the public roads and high thrills passenger rides to see how a supercar should be driven. It's time to go full throttle on your supercar experience!
