Brooklands Museum hosted the Auto Italia Italian Car Day this weekend which is the biggest day on the venue’s calendar. To help Auto Italia celebrate the 26 year anniversary of the Italian Car Day Performance Direct ran a number of competitions. This included a chance to win free tickets for the event and a under-18’s competition to win a passenger ride in a Ferrari 458 Italia up the famous hill at Brooklands.
One of our most popular competitions on the day offered the chance to win a passenger lap in the Oakley Design modified Lamborghini Aventador around the Mercedes-Benz World track. As standard the car is capable of 217mph and 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds but the Oakley Design modified car is faster. Amongst the thousands of entries received during the show, the winner, John, was drawn at random by the lovely Performance Direct Promo Girls.
Half an hour later John was strapped into the mean-looking car with another Jon; Jon Oakley from Oakley Design who modified the car to make it faster and meaner. The supercar modifier take supercars, or as they’re now generally called, hypercars, and they make them faster, lighter, meaner and better. How can you improve perfection? You need to get Oakley Design in to help.
As the winner John said himself, “Thanks again for making an already great day out truly memorable. The car was just awesome. Jon (Oakley) seemed determined to hit 250mph and it certainly felt like it was capable. I hope the testing goes well”
Well John, as I write this article a team from Motor-Vision are currently at a secret test facility in France to test the modified car’s speed, acceleration and handling. We will know very shortly how fast and incredible the car really is. We will be reporting more about this very special car in the near future and will share our exclusive footage of the car in action in France. We’re expecting it to be phenomenally quick.
