With a price tag well out of the reach of most, the dream of driving a Ferrari is exactly that, a dream. There are however, ways to make that dream come true. If you really want to drive a Ferrari without having to take out a second mortgage you could always take a look at a Ferrari driving experience. Driving experience gifts give you or your loved one the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the awesome Ferrari 360 Modena, on a real racetrack, with a qualified instructor by your side.
Built as a replacement to the awesome Ferrari F355 - regarded as one of the most beautiful and usable Ferrari's ever made - the Ferrari 360 Modena certainly had a lot to live up to, it couldn't just be good, it needed to be fantastic and in most opinions, it's exactly that, fantastic. With an all new, all aluminium chassis, the drive in the Ferrari 360 Modena was appreciably stiffer than the 355 and with the weight savings made, a good bit quicker. Power comes from Ferrari's most powerful normally aspirated V8, 3586 cc's produce 400 brake horsepower. Drive the 360 to its limit and it will accelerate from 0 - 60 miles per hour in just 4.5 seconds, keep your foot firmly planted to the floor and you will top out at a staggering 183 miles per hour. But it's not just the speed, when you drive a Ferrari, it's the noise as well, drive the V8 above 4000 revs and the engine note changes from a growling crackle to a full blown wail, a noise that makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
Drive on a race track or drive on an aerodrome
Ferrari driving experiences are generally held on two types of venues, you either drive on a real racetrack or drive on an aerodrome. Whilst the aerodrome offers the opportunity to drive a Ferrari fast, most feel that the place to drive a Ferrari is on the track. On the track, the Ferrari really comes to life, you experience not only the awesome acceleration, but you also get to feel how the Ferrari drives in the environment it was built for.
The Drive Experience
Upon arrival at the circuit you will have a 15 minute briefing on what your Ferrari driving experience will involve including all aspects of your safety. After that it's off to the track where a qualified racing driver will accompany you for four miles in a Mini Cooper S, teaching you the racing lines of the circuit and showing you how to get the best out of your Ferrari drive. After the familiarisation it's time to climb into the Ferrari for the drive of your life. With six miles in the unforgettable Ferrari 360 Modena in front of you, the instructor will be by your side to ensure you get the most out of your drive. This experience will leave you grinning from ear to ear for hours after.
Driving experience companies offer a wide range of supercars for you to drive, although most people choose to drive a Ferrari, you can drive a Lamborghini, drive an Audi R8, drive a V8 Touring car, in fact you can drive just about any supercar you choose.
