Head to Head – Ferrari v Aston Martin

Which is the best?

How does the Ferrari F430 Coupe compare to that British thoroughbred, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage? There’s only one way to find out – take both for a spin around Silverstone’s world-famous circuit.

Pitch the delightful squeal of the light, agile, 400 BHP Ferrari against the grace and power of the 4.3 litre, V8 Aston Martin. Enjoy the subtle (and not so subtle) differences in power, handling, dynamics and luxury refinement. Once your laps are done, you’ll be one of the lucky few who can genuinely settle the argument between the Ferrari and the Aston Martin.

Morning sessions (08:30 & 09:40) are available from £219.00.
Sessions from 11:00 onwards, are available from £249.00.
