If we believe everything that we are told on the Top Gear TV series then we should know that V8 driving is one of the most exhilarating and exciting experiences we can have behind the wheel of a car and now thanks to these companies that offer red letter day experiences we can all purchase some time behind the wheel of one of these beasts with the V8 driving experience.
So what is it about V8 driving that gets us all hot under the collar? Well to be honest it’s not the speed as we have probably all experienced speed in its various forms in different cars, roller coasters and more. It’s not the size of the car, as most V8’s tend to be huge monstrosities that are slightly smaller than aircraft carriers. So what is the key element behind the V8 driving experience? If truth be told it would probably have to be the sound that rumbles out of the exhaust pipes. There is nothing quite like a huge V8 car rumbling towards you. It is truly a beautiful sound to behold.
The three lads from TV’s Top Gear program, Jeremy Clarkson, tesla accessories Richard Hammond and James May have been teaching us all for years the beauty of these wonderful cars. I say teaching us and that is because through their television show we get to live out a fantasy that most of us will never normally have and that is, owning a V8 supercar.
When the lads take the cars through Mediterranean Europe, we are in effect living out our dream, there is very little chance that we will ever earn enough to afford a Lamborghini, let alone have the time to take it for a thrash through the quiet roads of France, Italy and Switzerland.
I think that having these red letter day companies is fantastic, it allows people to live out a dream which otherwise would be out of reach. For that day, they get to forget all about their financial budget, the stress from work or one hundred and one other different parameters.
If you have a friend, lover of spouse who is into their cars and you have no idea what to get them for their next birthday why not give them a day that they will never forget. A chance to live out their dream on the V8 driving experience, they will be truly grateful and I don’t even mind if you take the credit for it.
