Guest drives the McLaren 570S

3 laps

The McLaren 570S is stunning. The design is completely different from any of the other supercars in our driving experience fleet. The 570S isn't just nice to look at though. Out on track the twin turbo V8 engine (the same engine used in McLarens P1) delivers seemingly endless acceleration. The chassis is more than up to the job of keeping everything in check, especially around the long sweeping corners at Thruxton.

Why are Aston Martin's so popular? It's simple, they're beautiful to look at, brilliant to drive and James Bond has got one! This model is the Vantage N430. Inspired by Aston Martin’s rich racing pedigree, the N430 is the most dramatic version of the Aston Martin Vantage ever

About the Supercar Trio Driving Experience

It's Britain v Italy. McLaren v Ferrari v Aston Martin.

This driving experience puts guests behind the wheel of three brilliant supercars all on the UK's fastest race circuit. A fantastic opportunity to experience these supercars in their natural environment.

Kicking things of is the new kid on the block. The McLaren 570S. McLaren may be relatively new to the supercar market but they've raised the bar with every model they've launched. The 570S is no exception. Sat in the pit lane the design sets it apart from all other supercars. The lines are sleek, yet the overall look is aggressive. Out on track, the twin turbo V8 (the same engine as found in McLarens P1) has seemingly never ending acceleration. A stunning car which guests will instantly fall in love with.

After the McLaren 570S it's on to the Aston Martin N430 V8 Vantage. Look for the accent colour on the grill of the Aston Martin N430 V8 Vantage tells you this is something special. The N430 is the race bred version from Aston Martin. On track it’s awesome. The unmistakeable V8 engine sings around Thruxton. The V8 engine sings around the sweeping corners at Thruxton with power sent to the rear wheels.

Last up, the Ferrari 458 Spider. Ferrari have always been the benchmark that all other supercar manufacturers aim for.

The Ferrari 458 is quite possibly the most complete supercar they've ever made. Sat behind the wheel, the prancing horse emblem in the centre of the wheel, you know this is going to be special. hit the starter button and wait for the car to burst in to life. The 4.5 litre, naturally aspirated V8 engine is the core of the car. The sound, power and delivery is addictive. On track, you become one with the car. It reacts perfectly to every input you make. simply stunning!

Before driving the three supercars, guests will have time to learn the circuit with an ARDS race instructor. Initially as a passenger and then whilst driving the brilliant Porsche Cayman. A fantastic sports car that inspires confidence and will set you up perfectly for your time on track in the McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini.

This experience is available to purchase now as an open gift voucher and will be available to book in from February 2017.

McLaren 570S

McLaren describe the 570S as "completely driver-centric and performance oriented, the 570S Coupé is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road" and we have to agree! The fast sweeping corners and high speed nature of Thruxton quickly expose any cars vulnerabilities. The McLaren 570S inspired confidence from the moment we headed out of the pitlane on to the track. The 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine (the same one that's used in the McLaren P1) is immense and took us by surprise. The car is so fast and feels like it always wants you to go faster.
