Ferrari 458 Spider - Guest drives

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a V8 engine supercar from Ferrari. They've applied all their technical knowhow from the F1 team and applied it to this car. This model also comes with all the Speciale options. The result is stunning. Seated in the drivers seat you feel embraced by the car. The steering wheel could be straight from a Ferrari F1 car.

What to expect from the Italian Supercar Driving Experience

Lamborghini started making cars to rival those of Ferrari in the 1960's. Ever since their supercars have been compared to each other every time a new model is released. Now you can judge for yourself as you drive two of the best models Ferrari and Lamborghini produced.

Ferrari comes to the table with the 458 Spider, a V8 mid-engine rear-wheel drive supercar with all of Ferrari's F1 know-how. Lamborghini arrives with the stunning Huracan.

Which will you prefer? Which car inspires the most confidence? Is the Ferrari more nibble than the Lamborghini? Does the Lambo's all-wheel-drive system make a difference? Which would you drive away in?

As part of the Italian Supercar driving experience, guests will have a chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS-qualified race instructor initially as a passenger in a saloon car and then driving the brilliant Porsche Cayman. It's a fantastic sports car that outperforms other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots of confidence behind the wheel. It's a cracking sports car, which will give you lots of confidence before you take the wheel of the Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Ferrari is like a suit of armor. It's elegant and timeless. Lamborghini is like a spacesuit. It's futuristic and cutting-edge
