Sliding – somewhat impractical – in the new Lamborghini – this is not something that every kiwi experiences.
But Wellington has a chance for only one day.
Nearly a dozen of the country's most impressive and most expensive supercars will be parked in the Asteron Center on Friday as part of a three-head roadshow, organized by the Giltrap Group.
The plan, according to the head of communications Giltrap Shaun Summerfield, is to show cars not only to those who have cash, but also to those who simply love something with four wheels.

"I was that 12-year-old kid hanging around dealerships, so I like the idea that we do one day, which is open to the public to come and see cars because they are pretty cool."
Ahead of the showcase, rubbish was invited to pick up the car of his choice for the back – the opportunity is too good to leave.
After signing my life through an insurance waiver, my attention turned to the hard choice of which wheel was behind, with the cheapest offer, sitting around the $ 300,000 mark.
It took me a few, all the more embarrassing photos in and just before the most sexy Lamborghini Aventador, before I was convinced to pull out James Bond-esque Aston Martin.
The highlight of taking a smooth, drab ride to Lyall Bay was a short journey through the Mt Victoria tunnel. Although the horn of your horn in the tunnel is not unusual, driving something like this spot, of course, got a few more beeps than usual – which, along with a few engine revolutions.
Before taking on driving duties from Summerfield, he had to remind me that I drove a car for half a million dollars – the fact was not lost on me, as I cautiously switched to the Lyall Parade, only kicking, pressing the accelerator.
After some gentle persuasion and untapped confidence, I put my foot on a short beach haun, suddenly realizing why people spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a car.
"You could just drive a car for $ 10,000, but [with] these cars, you open your garage, and you will smile, because they are something special, and they are made by people who don't give a damn, Summerfield said.
"When I was younger, the supercar was worth twice as much as the house, but now the house is four times as big as the supercar, so these cars are eight times cheaper."
Other highlights include the McLaren 600LT and the new Lamborghini Urus, the fastest SUV in the world that has never been seen before in Wellington.
