Ultimate Drive Singapore Review - Take on a Super car

This is not a sponsored post.

After visiting the Formula One race, my boyfriend was feeling the adreanlin rush from all the cars!

To keep the momentum going, I figured I would find something equally exciting for him to get involved in. After a little research, I found the Ultimate Tours.

Basically, you pick a couple of options to drive a luxury car of your choice and pick between a 15 mins, 30 mins or an hour. I do think prices are insane, but isn't life about spoiling your partner and making sure they're happy :)

I chose the 30 mins option also known as the Street to Freeway tour for anyone who's interested and the cost is SGD 468.

When we arrived on site, a few cars were not available so the bf settled for the 'Giallo Mida' yellow lamborghini gallardo spyder. You don't need a singapore driving licence for this, as long as you have a driving licence from your home country ( for tourists! )

Here's some stats on the cards from their website if you're keen:

Cylinder Capacity
Max Torque
Max Speed
Ferrari F430 F1 Spider
4.3 l
490 hp at 8,500 rpm
465 Nm at 5,250 rpm
4.1 sec
310 km/h
Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
5.0 l
520 hp at 8,000 rpm
510 Nm at 4,250 rpm
4.3 sec
315 km/h

Honestly, I don't get excited over cars as compared to the BF. He was very excited and really had a fantastic time. I went a couple of days ahead to make payment and get a gift card so he could see it pre driving.

Overall, i definitely recommend this as a gift if you're willing to splurge. I do think the prices are crazy high, and you can pay to get a video of the ride if you're keen - unfortunately I don't remember the price.

Service - Received prompt email replies to my questions, and was an easy smooth transaction to receive the gift certificate. During the drive, the driver that followed my boyfriend fell asleep on his ride - not sure if i'm completely OK with that, but nothing went wrong, so that's fine. View the video at the bottom of the post to watch the drive as well as the sleepy staff driver.

If that's one thing I would change, it would definitely have to be the price. :)

Here's some photos I managed to take of his drive back.....

The happy  BF and I !
