Triple M rev it up
Today Triple M's Drive show, Merrick And The Highway Patrol, cranked up the speed at Sydney Motorsport Park.
Three listeners and their mates had the opportunity to test drive a Ferrari 458 Spider ($690,000), a Lamborghini LP570-4 Superleggerra ($600,000) and a Lamborghini Aventador ($850,000) at unrestricted speeds.
The cars, worth over $2.1 million, were subsequently given to Merrick Watts, Rachel Corbett and Jules Schiller to drive back to World Square in the city.
The three of them were as you might imagine, somewhat excited;
Merrick commented; "Today reminded me of the excitement of when a kid rides their first bike. It was just unreal."
Rachel said: "I couldn’t tell if my heart was racing because of the speed or because I knew the insurance excess was 5 times the price of my actual car! I have never been so excited and petrified at the same time. Amazing!"
And Jules commented; "Apart from the obvious differences in speed, price, aero-dynamics, engine performance, kilowatts, cylinders, fuel injection, interior and general sex appeal it was pretty similar to driving my old 2002 Subaru Forester."
