While in the past it was necessary to trade-in your beloved supercar for something considered altogether more practical when the need arose, it is now possible to retain your passion for driving in spite of needs for practicality. The selection of contemporary vehicles that offer four doors negates this perplexing conundrum that has long plagued motor heads. Supercar meets practicality – super-practical!
We’ve handpicked a selection of some of the best available 4-door supercars, which offer the ultimate driving experience to both drivers and passengers. These supercars are sure to make you feel younger on the roads for longer:
The Bentley Flying Spur
The Bentley Flying Spur’s extremely responsive engine delivers a top speed of over 180mph and accelerates to 60mph in under 5 seconds. It boasts a choice of four suspension settings, from sport to comfort, which adjust the car’s body movements. Change your ride experience without changing your car.
Beautifully handcrafted leather seats and a walnut burr veneer, made from over 10 metres of tree, create a luxurious and spacious cocoon for driver and passengers, completely insulated from outside noise interference. This creates a perfect environment for passengers to relax while on the move.
The Rolls Royce Ghost
The Spirit of Ecstasy mascot on a Rolls Royce always stirs the emotions. The elegant-looking Rolls Royce Ghost promises tranquil, luxurious and stylish driving. However, with its 6.5 litre twin-turbo engine reaching 60mph in close to 4.5 seconds and a maximum speed of 151mph, the Rolls Royce Ghost is no stranger to high speeds.
The ride is wonderful with the Ghost’s intelligent air springs, designed to detect and adjust for passenger positioning. The rear passenger is an important part of the Ghost experience – a feature that is reflected through its rear-hinged ‘coach’ doors. Its cosy cabin with Rolls Royce’s signature chrome, dyed leather, wood trim fittings and 21st century in-car technology make this supercar a passenger’s dream.
The Porsche Panamera
The Porsche Panamera takes its styling influences from the classic 911. While the Bentley and Rolls Royce have five seats and are saloons, the Panamera has four seats and is a hatchback. The Panamera’s 911-inspired steering – key to its success as a driver’s car – handles all road surfaces with real agility, while its body grips the road extremely well. Top speeds are around 160mph and it accelerates to 60mph in under 6 seconds.
To ensure that passengers also experience a sporty ride, the rear passenger seats are bucket seats. Legroom is ample and rear-window visibility is superb.
If repurchasing your old Porsche is out of the question, or memories of your Bentley hang heavy on the mind, supercar hire offers the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving a truly spectacular vehicle once more, without the commitment of purchasing. These 4-door supercars are perfect for special events, weekend escapes or as a gift experience. Reinvigorate your thirst to go faster.
