Why buy from us?
The V8 engine has been at the core of numerous celebrated sports cars and supercars for many years. This driving experience will put you behind the wheel of two very special cars on the UK's fastest race circuit, both with V8 engines, but that's where the similarity ends!
The Ford Mustang, since its launch in 1965, has become one of the world’s most recognisable sports coupes and an iconic American muscle car. Now in its 6th generation we have the latest version of the famous V8 Coupe which produces much more power than even the largest 7-litre cars from the late ’60s but more importantly now has a sophisticated 21st Century chassis with a multi-link rear axle, Brembo brakes and now that it is an official UK car, the steering wheel is on the right side!
Audi has hit the spot with their first attempt at a supercar - the Audi R8. Not only in the handling and performance department but also with the styling. The V8 engine's power is delivered through the four-wheel system so effectively, giving you the confidence to push the car harder on the circuit.
Preparing you for your time in these V8 monsters is the more delicate feeling Porsche Cayman. Time in this stunning German coupe will ensure you are fully comfortable and confident with the lines and technique of driving around Thruxton Circuit.
