If you have always wanted to own a sports car then you may have been waiting for the right time to buy one. If that time has come around then you will need to know the essentials about buying and owning a sports car. They need a lot of looking after, special due to the price that people usually pay for them. If you are going to be using your new car every day as opposed to a weekend car then you will need to give it lots of TLC.

Investing In A Sports Car

 

Know Your Budget

When it comes to buying any car, you need to know your budget. This doesn’t differ for a sports car, you will need to work it out regardless. Ideally, you should have enough money to buy your new car without it leaving you out of pocket. Figure out how much you have left at the end of each month and save up for the car of your dreams.

Where To Buy It From

You have three options when it comes to buying your new sports car. You can purchase it from the main dealership, used car dealers, or a private seller. Be aware, buying from a private seller means you don’t have any rights to return it or get your money back if it all goes wrong. Used car dealers are generally cheaper as they have been previously owned by other people. If you are not fussed about having a brand-new car then this is a wonderful way to save a bit of money.

Find A Garage

Now you own your beautiful sports car you will need to find a garage that will look after it if anything needs repairing or looking into. A lot of garages won’t touch sports cars as you need to have experience and knowledge of these types of cars. There are specialist garages for people who own luxury sports cars. A quick internet search will give you your best options, make sure you research before handing your beloved wheels over to them.

Store It Correctly

When you own a sports car you will want to look after it properly. This means storing it correctly and keeping it in good condition. When you are not using your car, think about where you will be storing it. If you keep it parked on the street outside your home, be aware that your insurance premiums will be higher. If you store it in a private garage at your home then this is better all around.

Get It Insured

Speaking of insurance, you will need to purchase this in order to drive your new car around. Check out the best rates using comparison sites or go by recommendations from friends or family members. If you have another car then your current insurance provider may offer a multi-car discount.

 

We hope you found this article helpful and that it gave you lots of insight into owning a sports car. This car will be the best thing you have ever owned and you will enjoy feeling the wind through your car cruising down the motorway. Make sure you look after your precious sports car and it will bring you many happy years behind the wheel.

 Oui je t’aime Pari, a Bonjour from me in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, it’s my first time during the shows in the city so excited to see how it compares to London. It’s all about the morning cuisine and nothing does it better than starting your day with fancy coffee and croissants and who can forget the fois gras so you feel right at home in Paris. The last time I was here it was for a Christmas shopping trip for a long weekend break, but this time Fashion Week is a real treat for me.

DAY 1

I have arrived yesterday in Paris ready for the Rani Zakhem Couture show today! The plane journey from London Gatwick to Charles de Gaulle Airport was a short flight and you know Paris was even more beautiful once you get there, If you ever get to visit in Summer, there is so much culture to immerse yourself in the Parisian Chic vibes of this cosmopolitan city. All dressed up in a smart casual outfit I made my way to the shows of Paris Couture Fashion Week with an UBERX Luxury Car courtesy of the UBER Taxi App in France.

INSIDE BROCKET HALL A QUINTESSENTIALLY ENGLISH STATELY HOME – DAY TRIP TO P1 SUPER CAR CLUB SHOW

THE FIRST AND LEADING SUPERCAR CLUB IN THE WORLD

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2min read1304 views

A while ago now I took a Day Trip to Hertfordshire outside of London to Welwyn Garden City to visit Country Estate Brocket Hall to see the P1 International Supper Car Club for their luxury Car Show. One weekend me and friend decided to head out of London and explore the home counties as well as look at some of the cool sports cars on show at the event we attended.

One Saturday morning we got the train from Kings Cross to Hertfordhire which was about a 40 minute journey to the event and we managed to arrive just before lunch time and make the day of it exploring the scenic views within the Brocket Hall Estate during the car show.

So, here’s a bit about the car show – P1 International is The Worlds First and Leading Supercar Club founded in 2001 by founder and CEO Michael Breen, P1 pioneered the concept of a private members club offering share access to a fleet of supercars  defining the luxury car rental market. P1 have seventeen years experience in refining the concept as well as continuing to offer it’s discerning members an unrivalled experience with access to a stable of the finest and fatest supercars from Ferrari to Maserati and more.

So, here’s what you get. In return for annual membership the club takes care of the cost of depreciation, insurance, servicing and maintenance, leaving the members free to enjoy the cars and the club without the inconvenience and cost of ownership.

Just being here at Brocket Hall in the presence of the magnificent super sports cars reminded me of watching TopGear on television but in reality I got to actually sit inside my dream bucket list of sports car and admire their interiors but at the same time appreciate fine craftsmanship of their engines and aesthetics for real.

Upon arrival to Brocket Hall we enjoyed a lovely Champagne reception and canapés in the most elegant surroundings of beautiful country estate that’s named after the Brocket Family through many generations. So just thought I’d mention a bit of history about the building’s lavish Estate and Acres of land which host a golf course driving range too if you love spot of golf just like me.

 

The best part of it was driving around the grounds in a golf cart so we could admire the scenery surrounding the estate which was a lot of fun in the sunshine late afternoon before making our way back to London.

It was such a thrill  to find out more about the luxury super car rental market and even more so explore the range of Super Cars from Vintage Classics to Modern and Contemporary motor cars and see how the other half live. A day out like this to experience real luxury at it’s finest had to be the highlight of my visit upon visiting Brocket Hall Country Estate.
