Lamborghini started making cars to rival those of Ferrari in the 1960's. Ever since, their supercars have been compared to each other every time a new model is released. Now you can judge for yourself as you drive two of the latest models from Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Ferrari comes to the table with the Ferrari 458 Spider, a V8 mid-engine rear wheel drive supercar with all of Ferrari's F1 knowhow. Lamborghini arrives with the stunning Lamborghini Huracan.

Which will you prefer? Which car inspires the most confidence? Is the Ferrari more nibble than the Lamborghini? Does the Lambo's four-wheel drive pish it ahead of the Ferrari 458? Which would you drive away in?

As part of the Italian Supercar driving experience, guest will have a chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman. It's a fantastic sports car that out performs other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots confidence behind the wheel. It's a cracking sports car in itself which will give you lots of confidence before you take the wheel of the Ferrari and Lamborghini.
