Satisfy your need for speed with a driving thrill in the amazing BMW i8 at TV’s most famous test track, Dunsfold Park. With butterfly doors, LED laser lights and a slick turbocharged engine, the BMW i8 looks like a car sent from the future – and provides a ride like no other, with two electric motors creating 357 bhp. Receive a briefing on arrival and then slide into the driver’s seat of the BMW i8 for the thrill of a lifetime. Drive six adrenaline-fuelled miles around Surrey’s Dunsfold Park, negotiating famous corners like Gambon, Hammerhead and Chicago with an instructor in the passenger seat offering tips throughout. Leave with a personalised driving certificate as a special keepsake.
