Watching sports, drinking beer, and driving fast cars. There are some things that we just know most dads love. For your dad’s birthday this year, why not give him a day he will truly remember? Sometimes an experience or a fun day spent with their son or daughter can be a far greater birthday gift than anything that comes in a box.
Why Your Dad Will Love It
Men would have trouble naming many better 40th birthday gifts than getting a chance to rev the engine themselves in an exotic car. Any year your dad might be celebrating is cause for such a celebration. The adrenaline coursing through his veins, the speed as he whips around the track, and the sound of the engine growling will create a once-in-a-lifetime moment that your dad will always treasure.
Where To Drive
Most major cities have several companies that will allow you to rent an exotic car. In most cases, such places don’t require any security deposit or special insurance; you can just show up on the day and drive.
Some companies have a dedicated track that you can race the exotic car of your choice along. Often you will receive a few laps as a passenger while an instructor briefs you, before you are let loose to drive on your own.
Others will offer the option to rent a vehicle for a weekend and actually take it out on the open highway! Think of all the places your dad could take his temporary ride, and all the great photos he could take with it.
What Kind of Vehicles Are Available?
Exotic car offerings will vary from company to company and are often available on a first-come-first-served basis, but here are some common cars you are likely to encounter:
- Lamborghini Gallardo
- Audi R8
- Aston Martin Vantage
- Porsche 911
- Ferrari 458 Spyder
- Maserati Grand Tourismo
- Bentley Flying Spur
- Along with many others!
Of course, you probably know best as to exactly what car your dad would love to get behind the wheel of.
A Moment To Treasure Forever
When it comes to birthday gifts, it’s a sad fact that many items fathers receive throughout the years end up sitting in a dark corner of their closet or garage and rarely get used. Your dad likely already has all the neckties he will ever need. Physical gifts can also wear out over time, breaking and needing to be thrown away. Dads have also been around for a long time, and chances are they’ve already bought most of the material objects they desired. But when you give your dad an experience like a chance to take his dream car for a drive, it’s something that he can keep with him in his mind and in his heart for the rest of his life. That’s why getting your dad behind the wheel is a better gift than any object you could ever give him.
