Lamborghini LP | Cars
Lamborghini. That's a name that should send shivers down your spine....in a good way!
For me, I have always thought of Lamborghini as the craziest supercars on the plant, built in a shed by a crazy Italian. Ferruccio Lamborghini was that man and the first of the crazy cars was the unforgettable Miura with it's fantastic looks and it's insanely sounding V12 engine. The world of bullfighting is a key part of Lamborghini's identity, as it was Ferruccio's interest that would give you the iconic emblem for this historic company. A Lamborghini has at some point been the pin up on everyone’s wall and thanks to the design tastes of Marcello Gandini of Bertone who gave us not only the Miura, but the Countach and Diablo to name a few!
Gallardo, a famous breed of fighting bull and Lamborghini's bestselling car to date. Lamborghini's are designed mainly to make a lot of noise and cause excitement. So, while the Ferrari howls and a McLaren hums, the Lambo bellows. And while the racers were styled by aerodynamicists, the Lambo was designed to make people say “wow”. Which it does. In a Ferrari or a McLaren, you concentrate when you are driving quickly. In the Gallardo LP560-4, you can’t. You’re too busy laughing.

Who the hell gets to drive one of these pure Italian (half a breath) super cars? This is defiantly a once in a life time opportunity to go wild and feel young again!
Bought a high speed passenger ride for my 10-year-old son in his favourite car (A Lambo) via Virgin Experience Days. I had to pay the premium for the Lambo which I didn't mind. In the end, he got 3x laps in the Lambo and 2x laps in the BMW also (didn't realise this was part of it so it was a nice surprise). The entire day was amazing from start to end, I cannot fault it. All members of staff were friendly. My son has ASD/ADHD, and he was in his element, he was ticking and stimming as well as just being over-excited. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, and this includes other spectators/families around us, thank you for making us feel 'normal' and allowing him to be himself. To the driver of the Lambo, thank you for giving him the best day of his life, to the BMW driver, thank you for drifting for him - he loved it! Defiantly work the money and I will be coming back with him for other car experiences.Melissa
Absolutely brilliant day out for me and my 15 year old son. John and our other drivers were fantastic. The cars were great and everything was really well organised. Being able to drive the cars properly quickly was great and not what I’d expected.Jeremy Reed
