The Lamborghini Aventador is completely new with a light weight carbon composite tub, carbon body panels and a 6.5 litre V12. The press have said it is the fastest car this side of the million pound Bugatti [and feels little slower] making the £330k price tag a bit of a bargain! This car also has the Lamborghini Performance Pack (one of only three in the UK) which pushes power to 746bhp and increases torque by 8%

About the Italian Supercar Driving Experience

Lamborghini started making cars to rival those of Ferrari in the 1960's. Ever since, their supercars have been compared to each other every time a new model is released. Now you can judge for yourself as you drive the two latest and best models Ferrari and Lamborghini produce.

Ferrari comes to the table with the 458 Spider, a V8 mid-engine rear wheel drive supercar with all of Ferrari's F1 knowhow. Lamborghini arrives with the ultra rare Aventador.

Which will you prefer? Which car inspires the most confidence? Is the Ferrari more nibble than the Lamborghini? Does the Lambo's extra 128bhp advantage really tell? Which would you drive away in?

As part of the Italian Supercar driving experience, guest will have a chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman. It's a fantastic sports car that out performs other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots confidence behind the wheel. It's a cracking sports car in itself which will give you lots of confidence before you take the wheel of the Ferrari and Lamborghini.
