Top Ten Second Cars for an Aussie Road Trip by Valtteri Bottas

Valtteri Bottas

I drive a very nice race car. It is very fast. But it is not suited to an Aussie road trip. (no boot space.) That's why I have my 'second' car. Purpose built with everything I need for my Aussie road trips. 

I will be busy racing my first car for a while, so I've put my second car on Uber Carshare for you to rent these Easter holidays. I am very popular, so I expect this will book out very quickly. If you miss out do not worry, mate.

We have scoured the Uber Carshare app and stocked the following 10 cars with limited edition driving merch packs to make your road trips as epic as possible. I am very famous, so I have put my face on all of it. You are welcome. Hurry, because these packs are first come, first served. Available from 22 March. 

You will get a beach towel, a car freshener, bumper sticker, driving sunnies, a cooler bag and a Finnish lambswool steering wheel cover. A little touch of my first home, Finland. So let’s check out the cars…

Rent Michelle’s Suzuki Jimny in Coogee NSW

This car is very cute. It reminds me of a toy car I had when I was a young boy growing up in Finland.

Rent Brown & Cony’s Suzuki Vitara in Woolloongabba QLD

This car is shiny and red. Which in professional racing terms, means it’s very good.

Rent Thisara’s Jeep Cherokee in Docklands VIC

This one has roof racks for my surfboard. I like nothing more than to hang ten.

Rent Dinesh’s Mitsubishi Outlander in West Melbourne VIC

This SUV is perfect for a family camping trip as it seats 7 adults. I don’t have children but I hear they are very small, so would easily fit.

Rent Zequan’s Mazda MX5 in Lane Cove NSW

This car is very good for feeling the wind in your mullet.

Rent John’s LDV in Port Melbourne VIC

This ute looks very tough which is good for my image. And the boot space is bountiful.

Rent Theo’s Mazda MX5 in Mt Waverley VIC

I like to bop along to Finnish pop music while driving this car. It just feels right. Zoom zoom!

Rent Ignazio’s Hyundai Tucson in Albion QLD

This car would be very nice to drive any day of the week. But especially Sunday. Sundays are for Valtteri Special Time.

Rent Arzan’s Haval Jolion in Kings Langley NSW

Lots of boot space for my collection of Aussie rock CDs, that I bring on every road trip.

If you don’t live near these cars, no stress. Uber Carshare has thousands of cars ready and waiting for your next road trip.
