Bdaily gears up for Cars On Demand supercar experience
by Nick Hill
Ever wondered what it is like to feel the power of a £230k Lamborghini? Well, I can now answer this after Cars On Demand were generous enough to let me test out one of their five supercars last week.
The supercar hire firm, headquartered in Wakefield’s Trinity Business Park, began offering petrolheads the chance to sit behind the wheel of the powerful vehicles in 2009. Every year since, Cars on Demand’s hire service has seen continued growth and now operates out of five cities, which include Belfast, Dundee, Silverstone , Horsham and Exeter.
As well as the Lamborghini Huracan, Cars On Demand currently offer hiring deals for the Ferrari 458 italia, Jaguar F Type V8S, Ferrari California and the McLaren 650S.
To show why letting out supercars has been such a success for Cars On Demand, director Paul Brown, who owns the £2.9m turnover service, personally took me out for a drive in the lavish vehicle.
Seeing the Lamborghini Huracan, which can go 0 - 60 MPH in just 3 seconds and reach top speeds of 207, for the first time was exhilarating enough, but feeling its speed and power on the motorways, as well as its unexpectedly efficient control throughout Yorkshire’s country roads was enough to show me why Cars On Demand isn’t struggling to attract customers.
However, for anyone thinking about getting behind the wheel of the supercar must be willing to splash the cash. A midweek daily hire will cost £949.95, whereas letting out one of the cars for 2 to 7 days is available for reduced price of £849.95, as is hiring for more than 8 days, which totals at £749.95.
For the real big spenders, a weekend with the supercars will set you back £2795.95.
Cars On Demand’s services don’t just stop there either, the company also conducts tours for like-minded supercar enthusiasts, who can enjoy day trips, multi car drives, UK road rallies and European tours.
As a self-confessed dummy when it comes to cars, I can safely say that riding in Lamborghini Huracan was a great thrill, so this service would be perfect for anyone who can truly appreciate the prowess of these vehicles.
