A Fathers Day Treat

Treat your Dad to something unforgettable this Father’s Day, and allow him to get behind the wheel of some amazing cars….Drive Southwest in association with Haynes International Motor Museum.


Father’s Day Weekend – 17th & 18th June 2017

Not just another track day experience…..the 30 minute driving experiences offer great value option for getting behind the wheel of some amazing sport cars & supercars, on real roads!

We’re offering an alternative to track/airfield based experiences, where you get to try some amazing cars in their intended environment – on the road! Starting at the Haynes International Motor Museum, we’ll take you on a route of mixed roads so you can see how each car performs on the road, free from crash helmets, and get time to actually know the car rather than a quick blast round some cones on a baron airfield! The pre-planned route will last approximately 15-20 minutes, with a 5 minute briefing before leaving, and 5 minutes at the end for photographs. There’s no other experience like it!

Please find below details of the cars available to book:

Aston Martin V8 Vantage – £79.00 (Min age 25)


It’s surely one of the best-looking sports cars on the market, and thankfully the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is amongst the best to drive too. It was launched in 2005, but subtle updates have kept it looking fresh and changes to the engine and chassis have ensured it doesn’t feel dated on the road either. The 4.3-litre engine coupled with the exhaust note, make this a fantastic sounding car too. Our manual model is presented in gunmetal grey, with subtle grey leather. Sophistication at its best!

McLaren MP4-12C – £149.00 (Min age 30)


Following on from the legendary McLaren F1, the MP4-12C set a new supercar standard when it was released. Full of technology straight from Formula One, including a carbon fibre chassis making it extremely light. Couple this with its 592bhp and you have a serious recipe for performance! Our ‘Titanium Silver’ McLaren certainly stands out from the crowd. Nothing on our current fleet will beat the McLaren for performance and technology. A real must-hire for any serious car enthusiast.

Ferrari California- £99.00  (Min age 30)

A Ferrari needs no introduction, it is the car of many peoples dreams and is probably the most widely recognised supercar brand in the world! Our very own Ferrari California has the only colour combination for a Ferrari – Rosso Red with Cream leather, along with a double clutch gearbox with F1 style paddles, and essentials such as sat nav, air conditioning and surrounds you with sumptuous leather.

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder – £99.00 (Min age 30)


In true Lamborghini style, the Gallardo Spyder is a real headturner, and is car which will get anyone’s pulse racing! The big 5 litre V10 engine kicks out over 500bhp and plenty of noise to go with it. The slick electric folding roof disappears quickly to further accentuate the Gallardo’s razor sharp lines.

Inside is a mix of black leather with subtle yellow stitching, with a hint on the centre console that Audi has had its influence in some areas. Our Giallo Midas Gallardo Spyder has auto transmission, with the all important paddle shift option, as well as rear facing camera, lifting gear, heated seats, sat nav, and endless amounts of Italian style!

The new Ford Mustang came to the UK for the first time as a right hand drive car in 2016 and we are very pleased to offer this stunning ‘Race Red’ example for hire. Complete with the only proper Mustang engine – the 5 litre V8 – coupled with a manual gearbox and Shaker Pack. Other features include leather seats, touch screen media controls, bluetooth, cruise control, heated and vented seats and reversing camera!
