"...0-60 in 2.9 seconds, if you can change gear fast enough...."

"...I have never driven anything that accelerates so fast..."

"...The surge of power is relentless - intense doesn't even begin to explain it..."

Excerpts from Ariel Motor Company (www.arielmotor.co.uk)...

"The Ariel Atom is probably the fastest road car on the planet! This is a truely remarkable driving experience that will create a memory for life."

Quite simple, a crazy car. Probably the fastest thing you'll ever drive and the most extreme driving experience on the planet, our Aerial Atom driving experience will leave you buzzing for days afterwards.

"...sleek, sensual and so, so good. The DB9 is the first Aston Martin that doesn't leave you disappointed, even a little bit. If you don't want one, you're probably dead..."

Top Gear loved the Aston Martin DB9 when they drove it. Now it's your chance to try the Aston's amazing handling and superb V12 engine on an Aston Martin driving experience. Whether you drive a six speed manual or a silky smooth paddle shift gearbox, our Aston Martin driving experience will leave you with wonderful memories.

The stunning aluminium v8 engine in the Audi R8, plus it's quattro four wheel drive system make it a brilliant car on track. Try it our for yourself with one of our Audi R8 Driving Experiences and have a fantastic time in this race-derived supercar from Audi.

"...If you think the R8 looks special, wait until you fire the engine....."

"...It's an enormously capable and user-friendly machine, with scarcely believable amounts of grip..."

"...no road car we have ever driven can match the sheer instant response of the 360's fly-by-wire electronic throttle. As soon as the pedal is touched, the car leaps forward and hurtles right up to the 8,500rpm red line with the high pitched scream of a race car...." Jeremy Clarkson loved the nimble Ferrari 360. The lovely noise from the V8 engine and the fantastic gearshift can be experienced by you on our Ferrari driving experience.

"...the 360 has an expensive and exotic chassis, using an aluminium spaceframe, aluminium double wishbones and electronic damping. As with its engine, gearbox and brakes, the responses from its steering and chassis are absolutely instant and totally true..."

"...sounds like a thermo-nuclear device being detonated, while the driving experience is just as explosive with 500bhp and four-wheel drive..." That's what Top Gear though of the Lamborghini Gallardo. Our Lamborghini driving experience lets you find out for yourself by driving a Lamborghini on track with our instructors. You'll love the 500 Bhp and four wheel drive system and the fantastic noise from the V10 engine.

"...fast, we can do. Fast we can do to the point of making hands go grey as blood fails to pump the required distance to the steering wheel during full-bore acceleration..."

"...The SE cracks through the first four gears with more verve, prompting in turn a more serious expression from the driver as the smoother engine mapping and slightly freer-flowing exhaust give the impression that this car is much more of a missile than the stock motor..."

"...multiple award wins, glowing press in every medium all over the world, destruction of all rivals in group tests everywhere and incredible lap times around the Nurburgring. The racing version even blitzed its opposition in the Japanese GT series."

"... four-wheel-drive, super-high-tech, all-weather, 195mph supercar with tremendous ability on all roads and an almost impossibly cool image."
