13 Aug Hire a Supercar This Summer: The Hottest Luxury Hire Cars to Enjoy in the Sun
Summer is officially here, and it’s been a long time coming; at one point we thought it wouldn’t come at all as the UK spent the first half of the year drenched and miserable. But the wait is over, and our favourite season is in full swing. Whilst our prestige hire cars are suitable for use all year round and can brighten up any dreary day, there really is no better time to hire a sportscar than the height of summer. Especially if you’re planning to hire a convertible supercar. At the click of a button, your luxury hire car can be converted from a protective, enclosed power box to an open-top speed machine, allowing you to soak up the sun, make the most of your surroundings and feel the thrill of the wind through your hair, for a heightened supercar experience.
Not only do we recommend experiencing a supercar city break in the middle of summer, we have supercars for self-drive hire which are suitable for all your summer commitments. Take a break from the office and experience the capital from the comfort of your very own hire supercar, available for a day, a week or even a month to ensure you see the city from the most unique vantage point. Select a convertible supercar for event arrival, business trips or visits to the UK and drive it the way it was designed to be driven. Our Starr Luxury supercar fleet is a mixture of old favourites and the very latest editions but here we pick out the best sportscars to be driven in the summer.
Hire a Lamborghini Convertible When Holiday Mode is On
Our Lamborghini Huracan Spyder offers the perfect combination of stunning good looks and high performance making it the ideal supercar to hire for events, cross-country road trips and city breaks. This beautiful Lamborghini convertible hire car has been cleverly designed to remain fast and powerful even with the added weight of the roof mechanism. Built with carbon fibre and aluminium, the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder hire car is still light and aerodynamic, with the capability of accelerating from 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds and reaching a top speed of 201mph. The roof folds away in just 17 seconds while you’re travelling up to 31mph, so you are always ready for whatever the British weather has in store.
This convertible Lamborghini hire car looks the part with the roof up or down, displaying signature Italian design elements and features of epic power and style, along with a luxuriously comfortable interior and enough space for two adults. Whether you’re able to feel the full force of the engine on open roads or you hit city traffic, the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is a joy to drive, with a phenomenal engine noise to match its raw strength. It’s impossible to ignore so not one for those who like to blend in; hire a Lamborghini in London and stand out, even in supercar season. The Huracan Spyder is one of our top recommendations if you’re looking to hire a Lamborghini for a day, week or month; either way we guarantee you won’t want to hand it back.
Once excellently described as ‘the sort of car Batman might drive on his day off’, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster must also be up there as an option if you’re looking to hire a Lamborghini for the summer. This is one of Lamborghini’s most outrageous designs, with an iconic look and feel which pushes everything to the extreme. The aggressive look of the Aventador series has been elevated with sharper, deeper lines and of course, each update doesn’t just create an intimidating look, it allows for even greater performance. Despite the added weight of the roof mechanism, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster hire car retains the same performance as the coupé, accelerating from 0-62mph in three seconds flat and has a maximum speed of 217mph, for one of the most thrilling supercar experiences in the UK. Even more impressively, the Roadster can reach the same top speed with or without the roof down so you don’t need to slow down just to enjoy the sun.
Of all the Lamborghini convertibles available for hire in the UK, the Aventador Roadster has got to be one of the most impressive. It benefits from the latest motoring technology and takes inspiration from Lamborghini legends, featuring updated versions of the most successful elements of supercars of the past. Compared to the Aventador coupé, the Roadster has been kept as a completely separate model with a more dynamic personality for an impressive drive you just can’t experience in anything else. The grip is also improved, and noise level has been carefully considered for a Lamborghini convertible hire car you can enjoy alone or with a companion, perfect for exploring the UK in the summer months.
Hire an Aston Martin Convertible and Live in the Sunshine
An Aston Martin convertible hire car is a classic and elegant choice for the summer season. Perfect for those who wish to sample the 007 lifestyle, you can hire an Aston Martin DB9 Volante to be delivered to any UK airport of your choice, ready to jet off and enjoy the British summer. Not only is the Aston Martin DB9 Volante an effortlessly beautiful luxury car to hire for the summer, it offers more in terms of practicality and versatility than some other supercars. One of our most popular summer sportscars, the DB9 Volante has room to sit two adults comfortably as well as plenty of extra room for luggage to take that romantic trip for two across the UK, even whilst holding the roof mechanism.
The roof can open and close in 17 seconds, allowing you the freedom to convert your vehicle as soon as the weather changes and the performance remains exactly the same as its coupé counterpart. The same six-litre AM11 engine gives this beautiful Aston Martin convertible hire car a top speed of 183ph and the ability to accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds. Hire an Aston Martin DB9 Volante in London and enjoy the roar of the V12 engine as you cruise through the city taking in the sights. Or push the mechanics to the limit, relaxing in the stunning supercar across the country. Regardless where you choose to take the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, you’re guaranteed an effortlessly elegant and comfortable journey whilst enjoying your surroundings.
If you’re travelling as a family or group, you may also like to consider hiring an Aston Martin DB11 Volante for the UK summer. Newer than the DB9, the four-seater DB11 is the most powerful DB in Aston Martin’s line-up. An open top grand tourer, the Aston Martin DB11 hire car is perfect for long haul trips through the countryside, allowing you to soak up the open air in perfectly refined surroundings. The DB11 Volante features a modern design with enhanced elements, making it the best Aston Martin DB yet. It is instantly recognisable as a British supercar and features amplified signature design points such as an enhanced grille, fluid body and sleek silhouette, whether you choose to have the roof open or closed.
Not only is this one of the best-looking luxury cars to rent in the summer, the Aston Martin DB11 Volante is a dream to drive. Graceful and elegant, it is easy to drive confidently, tackling straights and corners with phenomenal ease. Inside the theme continues. Aston Martin has outdone itself once more with a classy interior, which has been completed with astonishing attention to detail. It also features all the modern technology you need to remain comfortable and connected, well worth the £200k retail price.
Hire a Convertible Ferrari and Drink in the Warm Air
From the elegant to the outlandish, the third of our favourite supercars to hire in the summer has to belong to Ferrari. Whether you’re thinking of hiring a Ferrari for a long weekend, a special event or all summer long, you will not be disappointed. Of course, this is not one for the timid; there really is no ignoring a Ferrari roaring through the roads, even in the heat of supercar season. You will receive stares of awe as you sit in one of the most easily recognisable supercars in the world. The Ferrari 488 Spider hire car is the latest open-top V8 Ferrari to take the world by storm, setting the new benchmarks for hard-top convertible luxury hire cars.
The award-winning Ferrari 488 Spider is muscular and sporty, featuring new styling which leads to improved aerodynamics and intense driving pleasure. And with its V8 engine producing a top speed of over 203mph, the exterior muscle is not just a front. The interior has been inspired by Ferrari’s involvement in motorsports, with the cockpit fully optimised for the driver to get the most from the vehicle. Settings and controls are angled towards the driver and the dashboard curves in line with the cockpit, for a look and feel which revolves around high performance. Both driver and passenger can relax (as much as you can in a Ferrari) in the finest quality leather seats, finished with sports contrasting stitching.
Last but not least, the final car we think you have to try out in summer to really appreciate is the 2017 Ferrari Portofino hire car. As the Portofino is a model in its own right, every element has been perfectly designed to incorporate the additional mechanics needed for a convertible hard-top roof as well as the changes to the environment that that provokes. Not only does the Portofino boast incredibly high performance, it also benefits from versatility, stunning looks and practicality that a lot of other convertible supercars typically don’t. Sounding impressive? That’s not all, believe it or not, the Ferrari Portofino is actually a four-seater, making it one of the best supercars to hire in the UK for a family or group.
Its V8 engine has won prestigious engine awards three years in a row and when you combine that with the latest techniques in production and engineering, it’s easy to see why the Ferrari Portofino hire car has been so well received. It has a top speed in excess of 198mph and can accelerate from 0-124mph in just under 11 seconds. We’ll let that sink in for a minute.
The Portofino promises to impress at any summer event, whether you need a luxury supercar to top off that special anniversary dinner, want to surprise someone with a trip away or simply want to treat yourself. You really need no excuse to hire the Ferrari Portofino, the pleasure you’ll receive from driving it is enough in itself.
