Give a group of supercar owners an airfield for a day and you're in petrolhead heaven. Wheels24 user NISHAAM EBRAHIM caught all the action at the Last Lion Lifestyle Supercar Shootout.

Cape Town - About 70 privately-owned supercars in South Africa will head to Hermanus for the final Lion Lifestyle  breakfast run in 2015.

The vehicles are worth an estimated R300-million.

The convoy will depart from Cape Town Stadium and travel to Hermanus on December 27 (10:45am). While participation is free, access to the post-run activities including brunch is by invitation only. 

Local supercar owners

Established in February 2015 by supercar owner Ish Kaskar, the first enthusiast event was started by few supercar-owners wanting to go for a drive to the Franschhoek Motor Museum.

Kaskar says his database of enthusiasts includes approximately 160 supercar owners within the Western Cape. He says events have an average turnout of 70 supercars.

Check out the group's previous breakfast run in November 2015:

Kasker says: “We have formed alliances and are endorsed by the top brands in the automotive & aspirational lifestyle space - Lamborghini, Red Bull, Dunlop, Marlboro to name a few.”

New internship programme

Last Lion Lifestyle are in the process of formalising a partnership with the City of Cape Town to create an Internship Programme, to be launched in 2016. 

The Last Lion Lifestyle crew will be travelling to Hermanus with the Councillor for the Overstrand Region to continue "reaching out and inspiring youth to follow their dreams".


Kaskar says, “There is a huge emphasis on safety at all events and we’ve experienced no incidents thus far - in seven events.”

Car enthusiasts can expect to see Lamborghinis, McLarens, Ferraris, Bentleys and Porsches, to name a few en-route to Hermanus.

Follow the event on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
