Driving days are great because you get to drive cool cars that many of us will never be able to afford. To be behind the wheel of a Ferarri is an experience you will never forget. Here we feature just a few of the super cars you can drive and experience for yourselves at Silverstone track days.
Audi R8 V10
Driving this 10cylinder, 187mph super car can now be lived out in all their glory as part of the Audi Driving Experience. Also earlier in March this year, the Audi 450PS RS 5 and 340PS TT RS coupés were added to the list of cars you can experience driving at Silverstone.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Designed to take the game to Porsche, the V8 Vantage is the baby of the Aston range but arguably the company's finest product. Its front-engined layout allows the 4.5 litre V8 to sit far back in the chassis for perfect weight distribution: so the drive more than lives up to the promise of that beautiful shape. Oh, and the noise defies description!
Ferrari 360 Modena
A firm favorite for track days, the Ferrari has become the coolest car brand in the world for good reason, and the 360 Modena shows why. It's light, agile, offers 400bhp through the rear wheels and its paddle-shift transmission is directly related to the gearbox in its F1™ cars.
A stunning example of Lamborghini’s craftsmanship – enjoy the momentous roar of the 5 litre V10 engine as you experience 3 laps around Silverstone’s legendary circuit. Reaching 0-60mph in under 4 seconds this high-performance sports car will evoke the racing hero within.
Lotus Exige S
"Add speed, add Lightness" was Lotus founder Colin Chapman's philosophy, and the Exige S perfectly adheres to that mantra. No other road car can touch the nimbleness and cornering ability of the Exige. Underneath all those lumps, scoops and wings, it's pure racer: a bonded aluminium chassis, double wishbone suspension and a supercharged Toyota motor.
The Nissan GT-R doesn’t just represent the latest evolution of the manufacturer’s finest sports cars – it has redefined what the phrase “fast car” means. Blending vicious power with unparalleled electronic wizardry, it can slay cars costing two or three times the price. The acceleration through the GT-R’s superfast seamless 6 speed paddle-shift gearbox will push your head back against the seat as you power hard out of the corners.
