    Ok, the subject is a bit misleading, but if you take a look at this panograph you'll notice it's about as close as many of us will get to sitting inside a real one!! :biggrin

    True story: Michael and I both had the fortune to drive one. The president of Transcender just before the sale to Self Test had recently purchased a Ferrari. One day when he drove it to work, he let several of us drive it. It was awesome!

    I have done one of those track days where I got to drive a 355, lambo and Aston martin vancuish it was cool, but very expensive for the amount of time you get actually driving.

    I would love to do one of those track days!

    The good woman bought me a flying lesson a couple of years ago, that was incredible. I got a bug for wanting to fly planes but at heart I'm a petrolhead!

    It's one of my goals to do what you did you lucky thing! :biggrin

    It was nearly £900, you spend the first half of the day being taught how to drive properly and safely on a track, then you sit in as a passenger seat for a few circuits in a couple of different cars then they let you drive with an instructor in the passenger seat. Then you get tea & biscuits :)

    My personal favorite was the lambo LP40, the Aston was a bit too long for me and the seat had no hight adjustment as I am a shortarse, so I couldn't reverse it very well out of the garage. The 355 was a nice drive although was very twitchey at high speed, but I am used to driving beemers which are twitchey when driven properly :)

    The R8 is far nicer than the DBR9! But just to be different my car of choice would be a Viper - http://www.dodge.com/en/2009/viper/

    I'd love to have a go in a Gumpert.

    Ugly as sin but my God it's bloody quick! Fastest car ever round the Top Gear track too remember!

    [​IMG]

    Second on my list would be the current world's fastest car (yes folks, it's not the Veyron any more!) the SCC Ultimate Aero. Just to say I had a go in it.

    [​IMG]

    Third on the list is the company I had pinned all over my bedroom wall as a child, I have to throw a Lambo in there. Specifically the Lamborghini Reventon.

    [​IMG]

    Lastly, if we're talking dream track days here, you really would have to put in an F1 car but seeing as we're keeping practical here I have to go with the McLaren Mercedes SLR Renntech 722 GT.

    It's an SLR at heart but has been stripped down and tuned to high heaven. A must drive!
