Get your motor running with a cutting-edge driving thrill in the super slick BMW i8, as seen in the Mission Impossible film, Ghost Protocol. With cool vertical doors, LED laser lights and a suped up turbocharged engine, the futuristic BMW i8 provides a ride like no other supercar. Choose from three great UK circuits, including TV’s Dunsfold Park, and receive a briefing on arrival. Next, slide behind the wheel and strap in for the drive of a lifetime, with an instructor in the passenger seat ready to offer tips. Drive six high-octane miles round your circuit of choice, negotiating every sudden twist, turn, bend and straight – it’s breathtaking stuff. Take home a personalised driving certificate as a memento.
