UK's most popular dream car revealed - News

The Lamborghini Gallardo, favoured by celebrities like David Beckham and Pierce Brosnan, has been revealed as the nation's favourite supercar.

Our newly released booking data reveals the Gallardo is the supercar that Brits most want to drive given the chance.

Indeed, like the awesome power of the car itself, driving experience bookings for the Gallardo, which are the Italian marque's best known model from their 'raging bulls', with an incredible 10 year run in production between 2004 and 2014, are off the scale compared to other popular models such as the Nissan GTR, Ferrari 360 and Aston Martin DB9.

The Gallardo, which has been named as "Dream Car of the Year" twice by the popular BBC motoring show Top Gear in 2005 and 2009, actually accounts for almost a fifth of all driving experience bookings, well ahead of its nearest rival the Audi R8 which accounts for 12% of all bookings.

Dan Jones, operations manager, said: "While it has always been popular with A-list celebrities, the Gallardo would also be the supercar that most Brits want to drive if they had the opportunity."

"No surprise given its jaw-dropping looks and incredible performance figures with a top speed of more than 200mph and being capable of 0-62mph in just over three seconds once out onto the track!"

It's also a double celebration for Lamborghini, as it also tops the bookings for the Supercar Choice Experience where customers can select the manufacturer experience they want, as opposed to a specific model.

Dan added: "We all dream of owning a supercar and it is the Lamborghini, and the Gallardo in particular, that most Brits see as their ultimate dream car. With as few as 14,000 models ever built, and with some models still costing more than £100,000, taking one for a blast around a race track is the closest that most of us will get to enjoy its awesome looks, performance and handling."

"And while the Gallardo is beyond the reach of most pockets you can get to own one, albeit for a few hours, by booking a driving experience from as little as £39!"
