Luxury & Services has been at the forefront of supercar hire in France and Monaco since 2006. In that time, we’ve discovered, and provided our clients with, some of the finest cars on the planet. To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we took a look at 10 supercars that have defined automotive progression in the past decade.
2006 - Ferrari 430 Spider
This Ferrari 430 Spider vastly improved upon its predecessor, the 360 Spider, by significantly adding to its fit and finish. Equipped with cutting-edge F1 transmission, greatly enhanced aerodynamics and an ingenious electric soft top mechanism meant this car was our proudest acquisition when we first opened for business. Since then, Ferrari supercar rentals have been one of the company's most popular options.
2007 - Porsche 911 Turbo
The combination of Porsche's 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat-six, light body and accurate steering, makes the sporty 911 Turbo the epitome of power – going from 0-to-60 in 3.8 seconds. The stunning rich cocoa interior also earned high praise and added to the marque’s legendary appeal.
2008 - Audi R8 V10
Audi's successful R8 race car was launched as a road version in 2008. It reaches 124mph in just 12 seconds and has a top speed of 196mph making it a record breaker for the German car company. It is also the first production car with full LED headlamps.
2009 - Aston Martin One-77
Aston Martin’s One-77 was 2009’s most ultra-exclusive £1.2m hypercar. Named after the 77 bespoke cars in production, the two-door coupe was as exclusive as you could get. The carbon fibre chassis supported a 7.0-litre V12 and handcrafted aluminium bodywork contribute to its winning numerous awards.
2010 - Jaguar C-X75
Jaguar’s hybrid-electric, 2-seat, concept car C-X75 was designed to celebrate 75 years of the marque. It also showcased Jaguar’s intention to continue producing beautiful, fast cars powered by sustainable means. Finished in jetstream silver, its super-sleek and elegant appearance make it one of the company’s most beautiful efforts.
2011 - Ferrari Spider 458
The mighty Ferrari Spider made its debut in its spectacular new incarnation five years after our purchase of the 430 Spider. The new generation of Ferrari convertibles are a perennial favourite with our clients. The 458 model is the perfect blend of technology, design and aesthetics. It is also the first car ever to combine a mid-rear engine with a hardtop that is both foldable and retractable.
2012 - Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
The Lamborghini Roadster's design finds the best way to combine performance, elegant style, ease of use and a driving experience that exhilarates the senses. Its stealth aircraft design, its sleek lines and ergonomics inspired by aeronautics inspires its exceptional performance, making it one of the most extreme supercars in the world.
2013 - Mercedes SLS AMG
The Mercedes SLS AMG is a modern tribute to the original 300 SL which was such a success as a coupe, but while the SLS carries the classic Merc’s styling, it still remains completely up-to-date in its convertible form. It has inspired numerous versions since it’s launch: the Roadster, the upgraded GT, the Black Series and the Electric Drive.
2014 - McLaren 650 S
Visually elegant yet dramatic, the McLaren 650 S delivers in power and appeal. Both the Coupé and Spider versions are available for hire from Luxury & Services. The 650 S boasts a V8 engine and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds. The stability control and high-quality chassis ensure the smoothest of rides and impeccable steering.
2015 - Aston Martin Vanquish
The 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish is equipped with a new 568 horsepower V12 engine that allows it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. It’s the most powerful GT production engine in the history of Aston Martin and not only does it perform to perfection, but this ultra-luxurious supercar is unbelievably comfortable and looks stunning. It’s the perfect car to drive along the Riviera this summer.
