Cool Cars & Great Deals

Welcome,

We are now just two weeks out from the Starship Supercar Show, and there is a real hum around the office; as the petrol heads debate which car will be the biggest star.

The argument became even more spirited when we confirmed that the trio of cars dubbed the Hypercar ‘Holy Trinity’ will be at the show. The McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari are all nothing short of phenomenal. 

When you add in the 400km/h plus club of the Koenigsegg Agera S Hundra, McLaren Speedtail and Bugatti Veyron, it is too hard to choose.

I can promise that one person who comes to the event will win the most incredible Supercar experience around, with a hot lap in the Highlands Aston Martin Vulcan.

Every ticket sold goes in the draw to win a trip for two to Queenstown, with a rental car from SIXT and accommodation at The Rees Hotel and Luxury Appartments. 

At Highlands, the winner will get three Laps in the Highlands Vulcan with owner Tony Quinn and lunch in the private GT lounge.

It is close to being a money-can’t-buy experience in one of the most spectacular cars ever built, at a World Class Facility.

Among the Cool Cars this week, we take a closer look at the new Volkswagen Golf 8, which kept Shaun entertained with some clever technology. We also look back at Shane van Gisbergen’s incredible weekend at Sandown and look ahead to what will be a massive season for F1 hopeful Liam Lawson.

Get your tickets to the Starship Supercar Show – every cent raised goes to the Starship Foundation, and enjoy this edition of Cool Cars and Great Deals.
