Since Club Sportiva had a special for their "Supercar sampling day" :) I organized a group with coworkers, and our day had come.
First, we got a visit to see what cars they had. They do have an impressive collection which is basically owned by their members who "cash in" points for their cars being used by others, which in turn allows them to use other exotic cars too. It's actually a good idea for those who like to just go out for drives planned in advance (not as useful if you just want to drive out of your house and drive somewhere).|
Of course, they do not allow going to the track, which is a big bummer for me, since this would likely have been the main interest for me. Oh well..
cars being worked on
they had just received a Ferrari 458
They had a very nice De Lorean:
Then, we got to meet the cars we were going to drive:
Ferrari F430 Coupe was first:
First stop and car swap
The Lotus was next:
Second stop and car swap
Lunch at Alice's Restaurant
Next Car was the Aston Martin DB9:
A huge bunch of motorcycle cops out for a ride too, also came there for lunch
of course I was driving the speed limit :)
Then, was the the time for the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder:
It even shows you which door is opened in case you forgot
Next car was the Maserati GT Spyder:
And last, but certainly not least, was the Audi R8:
All in all, it was a great day.
still driving the speed limit :)
The lotus was planted to the ground, and reminded me of my miata without shocks :)
The Aston Martin was an overpowered boat with scary steering and brakes as far as I was concerned :)
The Gallardo was probably my favourite (not counting the F430 I already knew).
The maserati wasn't bad, but just not my cup of tea as it may be :)
And last but not least, I actually liked the R8. It was lacking a read row of seats that my M5 had, but it was otherwise a fairly enjoyable car that was well built inside.
