Is it Good/Not

Postby Nick Holden » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:21 pm

Hi all,

I've been searching online for places to rent a supercar in Nottingham or not to far from here. Haven't decided on where to get from, I've come across this company called SUPERCAR HIRE UK, has anyone heard of them before or actually used them. Their rates look pretty good, to me anyways, was looking at renting out their Porsche 911 GT3: https://www.super-car-hire.co.uk/sup...rsche-911-gt3/Any other recommendations to hire a supercar?

Sorry Nick, welcome to the forum :D but I can't help with your query - most of us only own a humble Morris Minor in various disguises though some are incredible pieces of machinery worthy of being called 'super cars'!

Your link doesn't work.

Which GT3 are you looking to hire, the early 991.1 GT3s had a habit of lunching their engines and many have been replaced several times under warranty, just be careful if the one you hire hasn't had an engine change (or make sure there is a good damage waiver present). 997 GT3s are pretty bullet proof though and the newer 991.2 GT3s incorporate all the lessons they leaned from the 991.1 failures.

Thanks Plin, I had to use my phone to access the link though as my PC still wouldn't open it.

I would be very careful, the car in their photos is a 911 GT3 RS (991.1) and they don't even mention the RS bit in their blurb (the RS versions were extremely limited in production numbers and so sell for way more than they did when new). Also I have done a quick google of the reg number and I think that was the reg of a Porsche press car from the launch date of the RS so may not be genuine photos of their car.

That also seems too cheap to hire a 911 GT3 let alone an RS version so I would be extremely careful there. If they were genuinely hiring out an RS version they would be shouting about it not leaving it out of their blurb!
