GT500 | Cars
Looking to re-livea car chase from the movies? Then hop in our Shelby Mustang GT500, made famous in the action-packed blockbuster Gone In 60 Seconds. But be warned, a driving experience in 'Eleanor' is not for the faint hearted as you attempt to tame this beast of a car!
The Shelby Mustang GT500 is almost certainly the most desirable, sought after version of Ford’s iconic Mustang. With its big V8 engine and stunning looks this really is a once in a life time chance to drive such a hero.
Had my experience yesterday and I can't believe how amazing it felt. I'm a nervous kind of guy but the briefing, each driver who sits with you, the other staff helping with customers etc, everybody knows what they are doing and are very good at it. I drove the GT500 for myself (incredible machine), the Liggtening McQueen for my 4 year old son (staff were very happy to accomadate pictures and let him sit in the drivers seat for pictures) then the last lap on the Atom (can't describe the speed and confidence and control the drivers have, I was blown away). Would love to go again tomorrow if possible, but will visit in the future again. Incredible experience and a lifetime memory.Kevin
Amazing day. Loved seeing all the classics but the GT500 (Eleanor) was the star. What an experience that was. She can move if pushed in the right direction! Whole thing organised really well, professional set up, good facilities and no hard sell made for a really top time. Will be back for more in the Autumn.Matt
I attended at York last weekend and had a great day. Well organised event, meaning getting into each car pretty quickly thanks to the two sorting out who's going in each car next, and no pushy sales for extras. All of the staff I dealt with are a credit to the company, April (Email), the nice lass at the sign in desk, and the guys in the Skyline, GT500 and Camaro BB for example. When things didn't go to plan (things like old cars breaking down just happen, and if you're booking something like this you need to accept that) it was sorted out as best as it could be. I did manage to get into 75% of the cars I'd booked for and it would be nice to come back and have a go in the ones I didn't get to go in this time, and maybe anything else you purchase between now and then. I have recommended to friends, who are wanting to book now also, and my sister is wanting one of the junior deals - the good pictures and the videos may have helped with this. The good bits: 1) ALL the staff 2) The cars, obviously The possible improvements: 1) A few competitors have more cars (even though yours are more likeable, as they're a bit different, not 'just' another red Ferrari). Do you think you could make money from an old Mini (Italian Job), an Esprit (Spy who loved me) or a DeLorean (Back to the Future)? 2) pass Overall: 5/5 - Well done!Daniel Edmond
I have used this company twice now at Bicester and Abingdon, driven Shelby GT500, General Lee, Nissan GTR, Bumblebee, Ford GT40 and the Mustang GT. All great, awesome cars and all the staff are friendly and helpful from checking in to being your instructor. Minimal standing around at both locations and great fundriving such a range of famous cars, recommend to everyone!Alec
Had a awesome day yesterday driving a Shelby GT500 and Ford Mustang. Staff were brilliant. Great Christmas presentTom
Fantastic time at Throckmorton today, being allowed to open up the car of my dreams around an airfield. This car is unreal!! The instructor was brilliant and didn't hold me back, really pushed me to get the most out of the car. Great experience and I will definitely be back for me. Also getting the chance to be driven round the track by none other than Ian Ashley was a great honour, really nice bloke. And scared the crap out of me!!Simon
My boyfriend wouldn't stop talking about it on the way home. Safe to say he was very happy with his drive. We plan another ride.Chloe
Awesome day driving the 2016 mustang and bumblebee cars although these were not the cars I wanted to drive. I received a voucher for my 40th birthday to experience the shelby gt500 and I added the general lee charger to it but could'nt drive either car as the general lee was broken when I arrived and I could'nt wait any longer to drive the shelby as by 4.30pm i had already been waiting a hour and was informed it would be at least another hour wait to experience the shelby and I had 2hour drive back home. Despite this disappointment I still had a great day and it wont put me off booking again.Michael Klieve
This is not a regular '67 mustang conversion, its a race car and completely nuts!! RHD and pretty easy to drive, took the Corvette and new Camaro out too, this car was the easiest to get the most out of. Still has 4-5 times the horsepower of your average saloon car, much more then I expected!!Mark
