• Silverstone is offering discounted Supercar Thrill Package

Let’s face it; not everybody on this planet is capable of throwing away exorbitant sums of money to buy their choice supercar. It’s unfortunate, yes, but it’s all the sad fact of reality.

The good news is that even if you can’t own a car like a Lamborghini Gallardo, it doesn’t mean that you can’t drive one, even if it means only getting to do it for a few hours.

The Silverstone circuit in the UK is offering this chance to anyone who would want to get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, or Lotus through their Supercar Thrill package. The whole thing only costs £99 - $156 – and if you pay for the privilege, you get to spend a few laps with these supercars. Now if you happen to have a particular bias towards Lamborghini, you can purchase the Lamborghini Thrill package for an even cheaper fee of just £60 - $95 – at least until December 19th, 2010.

In addition to the cursory hot laps onboard the cars, customers who avail of either package will get the chance to pick the brains of Silverstone’s racing experts, have your entire day chronicled by a professional photographer, and even get a certificate that you can proudly show off to your friends as proof that you can hang with the big boys of the racing world.

It’s not as good as having you own supercar to play with, but it’s definitely something that’s worth experiencing. After all, it’s not everyday that you can drive the wheels off of a supercar. But with this package, you’re given free reign to do so.

Check out a few videos of the experience after the jump.

David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

WOW! Pretty kinda good deal! I think this is a great opportunity to try these cars without spending too much. However, its still depressing that you just drive in it but you would never got a chance to own one since it worth a million dollar.

I would definitely search on this one. I wish that it’s not sold out yet or else I have to find another option. Dear friends, do you have any suggestions in mind?

Great advertising, dude. Well, let us check on the price difference and hopefully that this offer will continue until the unites become sold out.

More ways from greedy Lexus/Toyota to more money from customers...
On top of the overpriced Toyota. That’s why I like Honda/Acura more. They are more customer/passion of driving oriented

It is about time. Shame on Ford for not putting a factory effort together when they first built this car. If you are going to build the follow up car to the GT40, how do you not put it on the track?

I a taking my 12 year old son to view the GT1 at Silverstone this weekend and wondered if anyone would have an opinion on the best corner to view the GT1 race from on the new Silverstone circuit

Glad to see the modification to the headlamps for the entire line, should help diffuse that startled/frightened ’deer in headlights’ (so to speak) expression that the 1 series has.

maybe this is a special gift from those hot cars to be given to those who interest with it.

I agree wholeheartedly. The convertible is considerably less abominable. I’d actually consider letting a lady-friend drive one. If she were particularly gifted in other respects, that is.

i doubt it, maybe they giving lesser because of the season.. this is a good return for their customer right?

  (778) posted on 12.19.2010

well i guess they we’re out sell by Lotus, ferarri and aston martine that’s why they are selling it less.

I’ve seen the iphone in a mall... the screen is not just impressive in size and visibility, but also insane in resolution. I could not see its pixels smiley

Quite an experience it must be! Maybe someday I will feel this experience myself. From what I have seen in the video, I guess the driver needed more guts.

no quite, I guess they have a new trill package that’s why they are ready to sell it in low price.

  (346) posted on 12.17.2010

Yes, not everyone can buy their favorite supercars but compared to the other supercars this is less expensive because of the discount. So, If I have only the money, I will definitely go for it. This thing is great and I like the package too.

Suppose you are cash strapped motoring enthusiast living in Northampton, England. You live in a council flat and own a third-hand Ford Sierra RS Cosworth. You’re earning a steady if unimpressive income of £180 (US$284) a week, of which you manage to squirrel away a small amount into your savings.
