Is buying a supercar the right way to satisfy that itch, or is it more practical, and more affordable, to rent one when you feel the urge?
Every car enthusiast dreams of driving a supercar, right? Supercars are icons that represent the apex of car manufacturing; the pride of the automotive industry. They are beautiful inside out, offer performance and style unlike anything else on the road and are kings of the racetrack.
Anyone could recognise a supercar by its sleek design and the roar of its engine. Supercars are stylishly produced from lightweight, top-quality materials, with luxury interiors including heated bucket seats and other extras. Their outshining performance includes incredible acceleration, top speed and superior handling aided by a variety of digital displays and drive settings.
A supercar of any marque, engine size or top speed can be simultaneously thrilling on the racetrack, yet relaxing to drive on the road. Advanced engineering from high tech factories has seen the advent of adjustable driving modes that make a supercar as comfortable and reliable as a hatchback for daily driving. Only a few track-focused supercars remain, while most will take you from A to B in the quickest, most stylish and most dramatic way possible.
So how do you make this amazing experience yours? Here’s what we recommend.
How to get your hands on a supercar
Buy a supercar
If you can afford it, buy a supercar and it’s all yours. Sourcing and financing has never been easier. You can get the supercar of your dreams. You can personalise and customise the vehicle. You can use it whenever and wherever you want.
And that’s about where the benefits of buying end. After all, with so many amazing supercars out there, you’ll be stuck with just the one (unless you’re a millionaire). Besides having to pay a huge outlay as well as the licence, insurance and maintenance, no matter how much or how little you’ll get to use it.
Rent a supercar
Supercar Hire is becoming increasingly popular for many good reasons. Even if you could afford to buy one, hiring a supercar is a perfect way to test drive a few favourites before making a choice for which one to own, if that’s what you want.
Because you can be the cat that got the cream without the initial outlay, responsibilities and costs of ownership. The rental company deals with insurance, tax, garaging, servicing and cleaning. Essentially, the responsibility and cost is handled by someone else while you just have the fun.
Not only is renting a supercar more straightforward than buying, it also gives you access to a whole fleet of performance vehicles. Which one you go for will only depend on your mood or the occasion.
Imagine walking into a supercar showroom, taking your pick for the day, enjoying the ride with peace of mind that the car is in great nick, and returning it without giving it a second thought.
