You might not know the name, but you’ll definitely know the body: the iconic Ford GT40 that won the LeMans 24 hours four times in a row, and now you can drive a replica that is every bit its equal for three miles round a track with this Ford GT40 Blast.
One of the greatest racing cars ever built, the sleek Ford GT40 (named for its 40in height) is hiding some serious speed under its curvy bonnet. A powerful Ford V8 engine produces over 500bhp to get you speeding around the track in no time, so you’ll be able to imagine making your own racing history as you roar through three exhilarating miles at your chosen course.
Guiding you through every turn and helping you to get the most from your Ford GT40, an expert driving instructor will be on hand from the moment you squeeze into the driving seat for the drive of your life. It won’t quite last for 24 hours, but this is a drive you’ll remember for much, much longer.
- Three miles of exhilarating driving in a Ford GT40
