Supercars & Sports Cars: Everything you need to know

Are you looking for a driving day in a dream machine? We have a supercar or sports car for you - no matter what your passion may be. (Unless your passion is Morris Minors and Triumph Dolomites, in which case you’re definitely on the wrong site.)

Pick up a Wish voucher for a driving day and choose to drive a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi R8, Ariel Atom or a sporty little Mini. Pick up a junior driving experience and watch your mini-Mansell tear around the track in a real life sports car. No leg-stretching required: these cars can be driven by kids! As if? Yes, really!

If you can’t decide which car to drive, try a combo voucher: three cars in one day. Some of our combination thrills also come with free passenger rides, allowing you to be thoroughly shamed by a pro driver. Cautious types can pick up a package that includes free damage waiver insurance, plus a photograph of your face looking a bit frightened.

With all this choice, all you have to do is decide who’s coming along to share the fun and spectate. Locations are available all over the UK! What are you waiting for?

FAQs

Q: Which supercar experience should I choose as a gift?
A: If you’re buying a present, Wish.co.uk always recommend you buy a voucher which allows the recipient to make the final decision on the car they drive. There are a few different ways to accomplish this. You can pick a voucher that offers one session in their choice of car, or buy something which allows the driver to get behind the wheel of several different vehicles in the same visit. (Remember: you can always swap the voucher free of charge if your recipient isn’t totally delighted.)
Q: What’s with these kids’ driving experiences? Are they for real?
A: Yeah, man. Totally. Most of our junior supercar experiences are suitable for teens; some allow children as young as 10 to drive. The cars are full-size Aston Martins, Ferraris and Lamborghinis: no compromises! Qualified instructors are always tutoring and supervising the kids, so it’s completely safe, and we also make them wear totally uncool crash helmets for the duration of their session.
Q: How do I know my chosen car will be available?
A: The availability of any particular car will very much depend on the location you choose. Some venues have a fair few cars whereas others have a limited selection. Check the fine print carefully or call us if you need more information.
Q: What defines a supercar?
A: You know those Bugs Bunny cartoons where he dressed up as a sexy lady rabbit and paraded in front of Elmer Fudd who would then have steam coming out of his ears and then would hop up and down and make a noise that resembled ‘YAROOGA!’ Supercars are cars that make you feel like that. We are talking Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche, Audi R8 and Ariel Atom. The fast, nice looking ones that you wouldn’t park on your street.
Q: And I get all of them all at once?
A: What? No. Where did you get that from? There are a range of experiences to choose from, some featuring one particular supercar, some combining supercars, some combining supercars with other driving adventures, such as rallying and off-roading. Some featuring no supercars at all, such as the Flower Arranging course we do.
Q: So please, tell me, right now, which supercar experience should I choose as a gift?
A: OK, calm down and please get down from there. If you’re buying a present, Wish.co.uk always recommends you buy a voucher which allows the recipient to make the final decision on the car they drive. There are a few different ways to accomplish this. Pick a voucher that offers one session in their choice of car, or buy something which allows the driver to get behind the wheel of several different vehicles in the same visit. (Remember: you can always swap the voucher free of charge if your recipient isn’t totally delighted.) If there’s a big picture of an afternoon tea on the page you’re looking at, you might be in the wrong section.
Q: And you allow children to drive?
A: Of course! It’s one of nature’s most formidable moments when a child takes its first tentative revs behind the wheel. We want to be there and provide encouragement for that event. Most of our junior supercar experiences are suitable for teens; some allow children as young as 10 to drive. The cars are full-size Aston Martins, Ferraris and Lamborghinis, with qualified instructors at hand to ensure safety looms large in the picture.
Q: Can I bring a cape for my supercar?
A: Firstly, what colour cape? Secondly, no that would contravene all sorts of health and safety statutes.
Q: How do I know my chosen car will be available? Do you want to crush my schoolgirl dreams? Really?
A: We want you to have the most enjoyable PG rated experience you’ve ever had. But the availability depends on where you go and what you do. Some places have a shed full of Lamborghinis, whereas others have a more exclusive selection. Check the fine print carefully or call us if you need more information.
Q: I only like to do things at iconic racing venues. Brunch, meetings, hygiene, everything. What do you say to that?
A: Our fabulous driving experiences occur all over the UK, with many at legendary race circuits such as Goodwood, Silverstone and Donington Park. So you can experience all the historic chicane punctuated loveliness of Goodwood, while hurtling about in a Porsche or Aston Martin, if you wish.
Q: What about that thing on my leg? Should I mention it?
A: It’s pretty obvious from across a car park, so probably doesn’t need to be brought up. But if there’s a medical issue that you feel may inhibit your driving experience, just ask us or your driving supplier.
Q: People say I do a really good James May impression, how many times do you think I should do it?
A: I think twice would be fine, unless there is a situation that really requires a James May impression, in which case you can stretch it to three.
Q: That’s it, I’m sold, completely sold. Here is my money, please take it. When can I go? Now?
A: Check with your supplier about availability. Some experiences are weekday only but can be upgraded to the weekend with a supplementary payment. If your experience is cancelled due to inclement weather such as a Sharknado, Hurri-kangaroo or Bear-phoon, it will be rescheduled.

Fun Facts

1: The world’s first V16 supercar is the Cizeta V16T costing a mere $649,000. It was rumoured that scientists thought that no more than 14 V’s could ever be applied to a supercar, but technicians at Cizeta found a small pocket in the rear of the car to accommodate two more V’s safely. Thus a legend was born.
2: It seems crazy, but there is an off-road supercar produced by Aixam, called the Mega Track, with a V12 engine and a 13-inch ground clearance. But, being a supercar, it will only drive on a superior brands of imaginary gravel, such as ‘Duke Quentin’s Artisanal Gravel Glory’ or ‘Heston Blumenthal’s Hand-Raised, Organic, Free Range Gravel’ not available at Waitrose.
3: The first car described as a ‘supercar’ was the Ensign 6, which was named as such in a 1920 edition of The Times. And in my dreams, Jeremy Clarkson drove it later that week in one of the earliest editions of Top Gear, saying ‘it makes a dance marathon look like the Weimar Republic’.
4: There is quite a bit of disagreement about which model is the world’s most expensive supercar. Some say it’s the Lamborghini Veneno (about £4 million), others think it’s the Maybach Exelero (possibly £8 million). But one thing everyone agrees on is the man from Jamiroquai will own one before you do.
5: The fastest road-legal supercar is thought to the Bugatti Veyron, which hits a top speed of 254.04 mph, which is alleged to be faster than a cheetah chasing Usain Bolt down a waterslide on caffeine in a moped.
6: Perhaps the most famous failed supercar is the DeLorean DMC-12, the only car produced by the DeLorean motor company before it went into liquidation in 1982. It is thought around 6000 DeLoreans are still in existence. Though there’s a very slim chance that many of these are duplicates sent Back to the Future during the famous movie trilogy. If you are offered what you think is a ‘McFly DeLorean’ do be careful, as driving it may destroy the time/space continuum.
7: Supercars often feature odd design items and features to set them apart from their competitors. The Mercedes built Isdera Imperator 108i contained a ‘periscope’ which stuck out of the roof to allow drivers to see the road behind them. The entirely fictional Paranoid Driver magazine commented ‘Finally, a car for us’.
8: For those of us who feel supercars are simply not enough, there is an expanding ‘Hypercar’ market, which uses futuristic materials and advanced fuel consumption methods to create efficiency. Beyond that we hope there will be some kind of ‘MonumentoCar’ which can actually help you understand moods and feelings, can whip up a pretty decent omelette and can go 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds.
