World’s most practical supercars

When buying a supercar/performance car a lot of people (especially other halves) moan about the practicality of such a purchase. However there is a solution, it is called ‘persistance’.

Performance over a practicality is a simple philosophy  to live buy for a petrolhead. Meet the people who are currently excelling at it with flying colours.

Ferrari F40 LM

This is probably the best Tour de France support vehicle in the world.

Porsche 993 Turbo

The fastest window washer’s car this side of the Dartford crossing.

Lamborghini Gallardo

Having a bike with no front wheel attached to your supercar seems to be the latest tuning mod. I have no idea why.

Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan

You thought that the 250 GT Breadvan could only carry bread, couldn’t you? Well it can also carry Christmas trees.

Ferrari 360

What you’ve never seen a Ferrari 360 tow a caravan?

Audi R8

This owner bought the hard top R8 for a reason – to lug around Samsung Plasma TVs. Otherwise he would have got the Spyder, obviously.

Porsche GT3

All you need for a weekend camping trip. Mountain bike? Check. Food and beer in the trailer? Check. Porsche GT3 with rear seat conversion to take the kids? Check. Set of four tyres to replace the worn ones after drifting around the mountains? Check.
