First unveiled in 1977, the Aston Martin Vantage was dubbed as Britain’s first supercar, being as it was comparable to the big American muscle cars of the time. But we can vouch and say that even today, it is just as powerful, if not more so, than some of its Stateside counterparts.
The power behind this British brawn of motoring comes from its four 48IDF2/100 Weber carburetors and DOHC V8 engine, pumping 432 bhp. Its speed performance is also just as brash and bold as its souped up design.
Blistering from 0 - 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, it boasts a maximum top speed of 146 mph. And whilst some things may remain better left in the 70s, a thrill seeking ride in a classic Vantage is definitely not one of them.
Whether you choose to drive the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, DB9, or even the DBS, you are in for a lifetime experience. We offer a variety of Aston Martin experiences, including the opportunity to drive an Aston Martin or just sit back and enjoy one of our passenger rides. At Trackdays.co.uk, you may drive an Aston Martin at over 15 circuits throughout the United Kingdom, each of which will provide you with an unforgettable experience.
Not only are these vehicles among the most sought-after Supercars in the world of motoring, but they are also proudly British - go ahead, reward yourself or someone special to an amazing driving experience gift! Utilize our calendar to choose the most convenient day.
Between the ages of 10 and 17 years old? We provide an extensive range of Junior Aston Martin driving experiences for aspiring petrol heads and adrenaline seekers!
How to schedule a driving experience in an Aston Martin
If you are purchasing an open gift voucher for an Aston Martin package, please verify the voucher's validity term before activating and using it, as specified on the voucher.
If you are scheduling an Aston Martin Experience straight onto a date, please be aware that you are making a booking request and that the day and time you choose are still subject to availability. We typically confirm reservations within 48 hours, however it is critical that you do not make any plans related to your booking request until you get a final confirmation email. When you submit a booking request, the instant receipt you get is not confirmation.
Additionally, while buying Aston Martin Experiences, it is essential to ensure that the driver fulfils all age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria. Each event will have its own set of criteria, so be certain you have carefully read all pertinent material. If you are unsure about any details please call our customer service team - they’ll be happy to help.
If an experience is only for younger drivers, we will often include this in the package's name, although this is not always the case. If you book an Aston Martin Experience and the driver does not satisfy the criteria on the day, they will most likely be unable to drive and will be offered a passenger trip instead.
The Aston Martin Vantage went through several regenerations over its twelve years of production. This included 342 saloon models, and 192 Volante convertible models between 1986 and the end of production in 1989.
It was a Vantage Volante that featured in the opening titles of the 1987 installment of the James Bond films, The Living Daylights, which was Timothy Dalton’s first film in the role of Her Majesty’s most trusted secret agent.
But it is set to return in November 2020, as it will also appear in Daniel Craig’s final outing as James Bond in the 25th installment of the films, No Time to Die.
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
