At Barcelona Life we've teamed up with one of the city's most stylish tour providers to deliver a range of unforgettable Ferrari driving experiences, many of them right here in the centre of the city. We'll put you behind the steering wheel of the sublime and sexy Ferrari California convertible, and - with a little help from an instructor - you'll take a tour of the amazing Catalan capital, taking in the city beaches, Gaudi's magnificent masterpieces, the old Montjuic F1 race track or the awesome Tibidabo mountain (depending on which option you choose... 20, 40 or 90 minute tours!). And if you really want to go for broke we can also organise a half or full day of driving supercars along the winding country roads of the picturesque Catalan countryside with coastal views and winery visits, or - for speed addicts - a racing experience at the F1 Catalunya Circuit used in the Spanish Grand Prix. Keep reading for more info on all available options and advice on how to book...
I took a ride with a friend on the Montjuic option which follows some of the old F1 Circuit from the early 70s. It's a really nice scenic route and our instructor encouraged us to hit the accelerator once or twice (revving the engines under a bridge was also fun). The California is a beast and handled well. Naturally we got a lot of attention from locals and fellow tourists we passed! Overall I was glad we forked out extra for the 40 minutes over the 20 minutes, as obviously it was good to enjoy the experience for longer and get familiar and relaxed with the car. Thinking about getting this as a present for my Dad when he goes to visit BCN!

I selected the country roads option and did not regret it. The drive could last longer in my opinion but it was still worth it.

Highly enjoyable and let rip on the open road. The acceleration was scary!

We went out in a classic Ferrari to rural Catalonia. I felt like James Bond winding my way through the roads. A real thrill, I only wish it could have lasted longer!

I can't believe I got to drive on the same track as Button, Hamilton, Alonso etc. It shouldn't be legal really, especially at the speed I was going - bearing in mind I am no Schumacher! Worth every euro! I might even have another crack next year.

My wife treated me to this experience for my 40th birthday - because let's face it I haven't got the money for a midlife crisis! I can honestly say it was the best present I ever received. I'm thinking of getting her cooking lessons for her 40th to thank her.
