From Top Gear to James Bond films, sports cars are among the most exciting and prestigious vehicles that the motoring industry has to offer.
But while they might be glamorous, sports cars are rarely practical – so many drivers end up forgoing their dream sports vehicle for something a bit more family-friendly.
But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on sports cars entirely. Today, there are plenty of companies that let you hire sports cars for a short period of time, from a day to several weeks. Here’s our guide to the best sites for sports car hire in the UK.
Hiring a sports car
One of the best websites for UK sports car hire is Bespoke. Set up in 1995, Bespoke’s fleet includes a wide range of Aston Martins – 007’s car of choice – as well as Ferrari, Audi, BMW, TVR and Porsche sports cars. Cars can be hired for 24 hours, a long weekend or for up to seven days. So whether you want a sports car for a wedding or for a fun weekend away, Bespoke have a range of vehicles to choose from.
Prestige Keys Car Hire has a wide range of sports cars for rental too. Prestige Keys are supercar specialists and their service is ideal for a range of occasions, from classy wedding travel to impressing important clients. Prestige Keys also offer chauffeur and limousine travel, so you can be certain that they know what they’re talking about when it comes to luxury cars.
Elsewhere, Dream Car Hire has plenty to offer to sports car fans looking for one-off rental packages. Their fleet includes sports cars by Aston Martin, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Jaguar and Porsche, so there are enough options here to please even the most ardent sports car lover. And if you’re looking for a truly unforgettable motoring experience, their Supercar Six Day packages let you drive six different sports cars over 120 miles in just one day.
If you are looking to hire a sports car for your holiday there is a range of choice on Silversurfers car hire site as well. Cars can be hired at thousands of locations worldwide and many feature sports models.
Driving experience days
If you’re married to a petrol-head – or one of your close friends or family members is a sports car enthusiast – driving experience days could make an ideal birthday or anniversary gift. Virgin Experience Days’ driving packages give car lovers the chance to experience the adrenaline rush of motorsport at famous UK circuits like Goodwood and Silverstone.
Buyagift driving experience days also provide some great present options, with supercars from £39, 4×4 off-road experiences, rally car packages and more. There’s also a junior driving option here for young sports car fans. You’ll find some great deals on sports car driving experiences at TrackDays.co.uk as well. Handily, TrackDays also sells gift vouchers – so if you’re not sure what experience to choose, the recipient can make their own selection.
Or why not go direct to the heart of the action? Silverstone – the venue for the Formula One British Grand Prix – runs a range of driving days, from single-seater experiences in an F1 car to The Hypersonic, a super-fast two-seater ride around the legendary circuit, priced at just £69 per person.
