While it may be a common occurrence for unimaginative sons to sit scratching their heads each Father’s Day, struggling for gift ideas for their childhood hero, it needn’t be a difficult conundrum to solve: give your father a once-in-a-lifetime experience – the opportunity to take his dream car out on the road, driving it as though it were his very own. Supercar hire in the UK is on the rise, as more and more people crave the opportunity to experience the rev of a V12 engine beneath them, redefining their understanding of what it means to drive.
Unlike the more traditional Father's Day gift, which might end up kept safely in a drawer but rarely properly enjoyed, hiring a supercar is a uniquely exhilarating experience that can be enjoyed by both father and son, remembered for years to come. After all, there's a wealth of evidence to suggest that spending money on experiences rather than material goods is much better for health and happiness in the long term.
Whether it's been your dad's lifelong ambition to drive a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Bentley Continental GTC, or a Rolls Royce Phantom, it's a wish that can be granted with significantly less expense and difficulty than many people imagine. Renting a luxury supercar for a long weekend - Friday to Monday (perfect for the Father’s Day weekend) - can start from under £700, a figure much lower than many clients expect. In terms of the practicalities, you have the choice to either pick up your vehicle or have it delivered to an address of your choosing.
Drive with the roof down through quaint villages in the Cotswolds; head to Wales for the weekend to experience some of the finest driving experiences in Britain; or visit the West country in a thunderous supercar. Whatever you choose to do, supercar hire in the UK will make a memorable Father’s Day for everyone.
It's important to look around for the right company to hire your dad's dream vehicle, as some will have a greater range than others - more variety meaning, of course, a much more personal experience. With companies offering some of the most sought after vehicles on the road, the driver is likely to be the subject of many an envious glance, which is all part of the joy of this experience - an undoubtedly special one to choose for Father's Day this year.
