Buckle up because Uber Carshare has partnered with racing legend and honourary Aussie, Valtteri Bottas, to create the perfect car for an Easter getaway. Together with Valtteri, we have designed and fully customised Valtteri’s ‘second’ car, an iconic ute, with everything Aussies need for an epic road trip. With Valtteri busy driving his first car this weekend, his ‘second’ car will be available for FREE* on the Uber Carshare app from Friday, 22 March until Friday, 12 April 2024 in Melbourne, so push push push to make sure you don’t miss out. You can check out Valtteri’s ‘second’ car here.

Valtteri spends his off-seasons travelling Australia, so he knows firsthand what the ultimate road trip car needs. “This is a beautiful country and Aussies have welcomed me with open arms. I want to repay this love by loaning them my ‘second’ car – the ultimate road trip car – while I’m busy racing my first car.” 

“All modifications in the ute have been carefully considered to make sure it has everything an Aussie could need for a road trip – mullet aeration technology, a meat pie warmer, an esky to keep my drinks cold, a bike rack, detachable hills hoist, freshwater shower, in-built sunscreen, and bug repellent dispensers. I hope you all love this car as much as I do. It’s an absolute pride and joy.”

Uber Carshare (previously Car Next Door) Co-founder, Will Davies, said “We know Aussies love to get away during the Easter long weekend and school holidays, but their first car may not be adequate for their plans – perhaps it’s too small to fit a bunch of mates in the back, doesn’t have roof racks, or simply does not have the amenities you need for a trip up to the mountains. That’s where Uber Carshare comes in. We’re Australia’s home of second cars – over ten thousand road-trip-worthy cars available across Australia and bookable in minutes.”

For those who miss out on the chance to rent Valtteri’s iconic ute,  the honourary Aussie has given ten Uber Carshare cars across the “VB seal of roadtrip-approval” for the perfect Aussie road trip. These cars are in all shapes and sizes, ready to take you where you need to go and beyond – built for a perfect Aussie adventure! It’s best to be in pole position to book these as the first person to book any VB roadtrip-approved cars will receive a free VB ‘road trip kit’ stocked with a car air freshener, beach towel, drinks cooler, sunnies, and more.
