What is a luxury sporst car test drive?
Prancing Horse Driving Experiences focus on providing luxury drives that are designed for couples which makes it the perfect way to test drive a sports car like the Evora. They do these driving tours from beautiful destinations like the NSW South Coast and carefully pair them with the finest restaurants and hotels. It means you can test drive an unparalleled collection of sports cars to really experience what they are like on Australia roads.
Why is a Prancing Horse test drive a good idea?
When you are trying to research your purchase of a new or used sports car the typical process will be to go to a few dealerships and see if they will let you drive a vehicle. In some cases due to the value of the vehicle that may not be possible, so you are left to make a decision without experiencing the car.
At Simply Sports Cars in Sydney or Melbourne we often let clients test drive the Elise, Exige, Evora (& the soon to be released Emira of course)
Although the challenge with any test drive is that you are fairly limited to the amount of time you can have to really learn about the vehicle. Where we can we will try and do a run that goes on normal roads and then a stretch of motorway.
So the benefit of a Prancing Horse test drive is that you are in different vehicles all day long for longer periods where you can really get to experience them.
Where does the test drive route go?
One of the more popular test drive routes enables you to discover the very best of Kiama and the hinterland of the Southern Highlands with a 200km loop. Starting from the shores of Kiama – south of Sydney, you get to experience an incredible drive day that ventures across a landscape of rolling hills, sleepy dairy farms and sub-tropical rainforests.
After an espresso and a private introduction to a stable of sports cars, including the Evora, you depart for the hinterland of Jamberoo and the dramatic escarpment rising behind it. From here you ascend Macquarie Pass; an often misty mountain road etched into fold-created cliffs that shelter waterfalls, thrilling hair-pin bends and sheer sandstone walls.
Then you rise onto the plateau of the Southern Highlands for a leisurely stop at Burrawang General Store (est. 1867). Raid the delicious display of cakes and scones, paired with home-made jams and fresh cream.
You get behind the wheel of another car and then follow the ribbon of tarmac that unravels into Kangaroo Valley. The sound of throttles opening simultaneously, the roar of engines and the crackling of exhausts bouncing over the Southern Highlands is intoxicating. You will then finally arriving at the calm inlet of Gerroa estuary.
After lunch, it is up the M1 via the Kiama Bends and the smoothly surfaced roads into Jamberoo. At the top of Jamberoo Mountain Rd the scenic lookout is incredible before driving down the sweeping bends to the Kiama Lighthouse and Blowhole on dusk for the perfect photo opportunity.
