Aston Martin versus Nissan GT-R Driving Experience
Choose from multiple experiences
Drive one of two sleek Aston Martins - the V8 Vantage or the DB9 - as well as the phenomenally quick Nissan GT-R. The Aston Martins are both beautifully-crafted modern classics with awesome power and superb handling. The Nissan, meanwhile, is a bit of a monster; with 4WD, a 3.8 litre V6 engine and two turbochargers, it goes from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a phenomenal top speed of 195 mph. Kick off with a briefing on driving techniques and theory. Then drive either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 for six miles, and after a break, step into the Nissan GT-R for six more miles. Driving is assessed and there is also a certificate as a memento to take home.
- Full briefing and demo laps driven by a qualified instructor
- Take the driving seat of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9
