As a young girl, Alex Hirschi drove a plain-Jane Mitsubishi for years. Now, at 30, she corrals a supercar stable that would make anyone jealous. A popular social influencer in Dubai, Hirschi is living what many car-lovers would consider the dream — she drives supercars for a living. “I’ve driven Ferrari 488 GTB, the 488 Spider, the Mclaren 570s and 540c, the Bentley GT3R, GT Speed and V8s, Mercedes AMG GTs, Lamborghini Huracan, and many others.”
“The best thing about driving supercars is the way it makes me feel. It’s so much fun that I often find myself laughing behind the wheel. I’ve always loved driving, even when I was driving my very first car — a Mitsubishi Lancer,” says the keen motor enthusiast, who grew up in Queensland, Australia.
She did laps with Stig from Top Gear on a track in the UAE, and even drove the Batmobile — the apotheosis of beautiful, fast cars — from the 1989 Batman movie. For car fangirl Hirschi, four-wheel driving is not a transport mode, but a machine to be enjoyed. She says,
“In Dubai, we spend too much of our lives in cars; we shouldn’t be wasting it on something boring, but rather enjoy every minute in something we love and appreciate.”
