2015 was an amazing year
for the Last Lion Lifestyle team hosting many events from breakfast
runs, private drag and track days and even track day classroom
sessions. From its inception only in March of 2015, the group
accomplished a tremendous amount from the scale of their events
to the number of followers. Last Lion Lifestyle is not a club
but rather see themselves as a supercar community with all events
free of charge to guests, provided you are invited.
From ending off 2015 in grand style inside Cape Town Stadium with
over 120 supercars in attendance, it has to be one of Cape Town’s
biggest exotic and supercar events to date. Come 2016 the team
decided to start off on a smaller scale in anticipation on building
up the events as the year progresses.
The first event was a breakfast run which started from the Westin
Hotel in Cape Town central with the end destination ending off
in lovely country side at the Franschhoek Motor Museum. With the
intention of starting small, the parking lot at the Westin quickly
filled up with more than 65 supercars attending. With many high
profile people and even SA cricketer Vernon Philander amongst
the guests, its plain to see how word of these exclusive events
are growing within the supercar community.
A highlight for many would have been the appearance of one very
special 15 million rand car at the event. The first in South Africa,
at the time, a Lamborghini Aventador SV fresh from RACE! with
a few personal touches from the owner. The crowds swarmed to the
car as soon as it arrived armed with smart phones and cameras
the drivers briefing had to be put on hold momentarily as
the Aventador revved its Armytrix exhaust waking up the entire
hotel in the process I’m sure.
As drivers made their way down the N1 highway led by a red Lamborghini
Huracan pace car, onlookers were in sheer amazement once again
where all these supercars came from, or where they’re going
to. People generally go crazy when they see one supercar, seeing
more than 50 driving in convoy just blows about anyone’s
Definately one of MY favourite cars from the event. Nothing beats
a black Bad Boys Porsche! This one sporting a set of Ruf wheels.
The route was a quick one, as previously mentioned, it was planned
to be a small run just to Franschhoek. It was somewhat of a reminiscent
event for organisers as the Motor Museum was Last Lion Lifestyles
first ever breakfast run end destination almost one year ago with
only 8 supercars.
It turned out to be a Jaguar VS Porsche affair!

to get a better feel of things.
Arriving at the Franschhoek Motor Museum all were greeted by the
friendly and welcoming staff who gave guests an introductory talk
as well as a tour through some of the exhibits.
One of my all time favourite supercars. Ferrari F40.
