The Great Recession may be over, but there's still a long way to go before the typical driver can park a $500,000 Lamborghini Aventador in his garage. Still, that doesn't stop supercar fans of limited means from daydreaming about driving one someday.
This is not lost on supercar manufacturers, many of whom have realized that their well-to-do clients aren't their only source of revenue. There's money to be made in selling the supercar experience, in allowing average Joes to drive like high rollers for a few minutes.
For just a fraction of the cost of taking one home, laymen drivers can now get inside a Ferrari, Porsche or other luxury supercar and tear up a closed course at breakneck speeds. This thrilling experience is sold by independent businesses and the manufacturers themselves, and even though it's over quickly, it's exhilarating and unforgettable.
Read ahead to see some of the vehicles that are currently available for fleeting—but amazing—supercar experiences.
