Imagine seeing a combined
total of well over 10,000kw at the same place, at the same time.
It’s a crazy thought, yes; but one which became an incredible
reality thanks to high-end luxury lifestyle community Last Lion
Lifestyle this past Sunday 14 June.
If you happened to be an automotive enthusiast, you’d probably
have thought that you somehow passed on and landed up in motoring
Ask any real ‘petrolhead’ what their dream garage
would consist of, and you’re pretty much guaranteed to hear
brands like Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche being thrown
Those who happened to be in the vicinity of The Westin Hotel at
the CTICC on Sunday morning were reduced to quivering, dribbling
messes as some of the Cape’s finest and rarest supercar
metal came out to play...
And whether you were an enthusiast or not, you would agree that
it was an incredible sight to behold. If ever there was a quintessential
dream garage collection, this was it!
From stately Bentley Continentals, sporty Jaguars, BMW M-division
and rival AMG derivatives, to highly modified Nissan R35 GTR’s
– and Gallardo Superleggeras, Astons, Maseratis, Ferrari
Californias and 458 Italia’s in between.
Likeminded supercar and sports car owners gathered on the day
to embark on a thrilling breakfast run; with the enchantingly
luxurious Asara Wine Estate in Stellenbosch being the intended
The Last Lion Lifestyle breakfast run was multi-faceted in its
appeal. Not only would the public be treated to a spontaneous
supercar show (both parked and out on the highways – can
you imagine seeing over 100 multimillion rand machines screaming
past you?), but the owners were given the unique opportunity to
really enjoy their cars the way they were meant to be enjoyed.
An obvious upshot was that after a spirited drive, all those in
attendance would be treated to a decadent luxury experience courtesy
of the Asara Wine Estate – all while mingling, networking
and establishing new friendships and connections.
Thanks to motoring brands that were involved on the day Velocity
Cars, McLaren Cape Town, and Mercedes Benz AMG coming on board
for the Last Lion event, a few incredible spot prizes were also
handed out – including advanced driving courses, luxury
luggage sets, and even getting to spend a day with a McLaren 650S!
Numerous media crews were also in attendance on the day; with
each team doing an amazing job of capturing the spirit and essence
of the event.
It might only be the third high-end supercar event mounted by
the team behind the Last Lion Lifestyle brand, but already it’s
proving to be a winning formula. The owners are already asking
when the next event can be expected – we’ll all just
have to wait and see, though!
So, the next time you’re out and about and more than a dozen
supercars come cruising past you; simply hoot, smile and wave
– and know that a Last Lion Lifestyle experience is underway!
