Reviewing a Very Fun Experience (Track Day)

By Gail Barron | Super Cars

This post is just going to be reviewing one of my favourite experiences – Track days. I’ve been on a number of track days but the last one was almost 2 years ago (which I couldn’t believe), needless to say I needed another and this week was when I got it. I was given a driving experience package from someone for my birthday and couldn’t wait to get started. It was for Aston Martins, but they kindly let me test out a whole range of other supercars and overall the experience was awesome, I’m just going to talk below about the 4 cars I tested on the track as well as the general goings on that is associated with this experience days.

Car 1 was the Aston Martin DB9 – for the individuals who don’t know what car this is… Have you been living under a rock? But anyway its a very fast, extremely stylish Aston Martin that is probably my number 1 Aston and hence why I selected it first up. You can see a picture of it below and I think you will agree it is very pretty!

After car 1 there was a slight break for breakfast, this is something I really enjoyed chatting with the owner of the event, as well as a number of others on the track day itself, these people were into supercars almost as much as me, and many of them had similar interests and were around the same age too, so that was perfect. Breakfast itself was nice enough but it was time to get onto car 2, which was my second and final Aston of the day – The Aston Martin Vanquish pictured below.

Straight onto car 3 which was my first and last Ferrari of the day, and can you guess what model? It’s pretty obviously going to be the one and only Ferrari 458 Italia. I think they had the GT version or some extremely quick version of the Italia as this car absolutely flew! One of the quickest 0-60 cars I’ve been in for a while. The Ferrari Italia is pictured below.

After this drive it was time for lunch and to select our final car of the day. Lunch was great and seeing everyone again was very cool, but my main focus was on the next supercar and that was one of my all time favourites – The Lamborghini Huracan, in my opinion the single best supercar of our generation (all things considered, including cost price!) This made my entire event as I was only meant to be able to drive Aston’s on this day so having these was perfect! More than that it was the fastest one I drove and had a great time too, making my fastest lap time in the Lambo as expected. Loved every single of the track day and I think if you love supercars you should get this as its great value for money and an awesome day our too.

Super Cars – Lamborghini

By Gail Barron | Super Cars

Super cars

Cars used to be just a way of transport. They had only one purpose. As the years have passed they have become more than just a way of transport. Nowadays they can be defined as something that represents us and our identity. The choice of a car can tell a lot about us.

Believe it or not, it can tell us what color you prefer, whether you are an adventurous person or not and much more. If the super car is something you like, we can say that this defines you as a fan of the high performance.

History of Lamborghini

One of the fastest supercars in the world is the Lamborghini Huracan. The production of Lamborghini is located in Santa’s Agata Bolognese in Italy.

The company was founded in 1963 by Ferruccio Lamborghini for the purpose of producing grand touring cars to beat the competition such as Ferrari. Today Lamborghini is a well-known Italian brand of luxury sports cars. The first model was released in 1960; it was immediately described as the symbol of power and comfort.

The characteristics of a Lamborghini

Besides its refinement, comfort and power this luxurious car brand was among the first ones who had established rear wheel drive and a mid-engine layout. Nowadays you can see how enormous progress this company has made since its beginning. This company is known for producing cars with out-standing acceleration. Some models can accelerate at a quarter of a mile in only 10 seconds. It is equal to a blink of an eye. The incredible acceleration of every Lamborghini model is owed to a very powerful engine such as the 6.5-liter V12 engine.

These engines can move a vehicle from the starting position to 190 miles per hour in only 20 seconds. Therefore, the breaks are the second strongest point of this company. Build with ceramic disks in the front and the back wheels these breaks are more than enough to stop such a powerful vehicle. The only thing that is not in the center of attention is the fuel consumption. So if you don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on your super car don’t even think about shopping. That is the truth, near my home-town is the San Diego Auto Broker – I asked them what the most expensive car any of them ever sold was…. Yep it was a Lamborghini (Second hand!) And still made the top of the list.

The latest models of this powerful machine

Among the latest models, the most popular are Huracan and Aventador.
Huracan

This model of Lamborghini was one of the best in 2014. With the 5.2 L V10 engine, this car can accelerate from the start position to 202 miles per hour speed in a very short time. With speed qualities like this, this vehicle totally justifies its name (Spanish for “hurricane”).

Aventador
This model represents a whole new level of performance. Unsurprisingly, it is strikingly rapid. It can achieve 60 miles per hour from a standstill in 2.5 seconds. This fast vehicle is something that you should have in your collection.
Whether you want to buy the newest model or some older ones, Lamborghini is the best possible choice that you can make. Besides its acceleration power, you certainly won’t be disappointed with its modern Italian design. As you have already known, the design is something that Italians pay attention to.
