Go for a 'Hypersonic' lap of Silverstone!

Climb aboard the custom-built two-seater 3.7 litre V6 Ford Cyclone Hypersonic car and go for high-speed lap of Silverstone

Silverstone launched 'The Hypersonic' passenger experience this week, offering members of the public the chance to experience a lap of the British Grand Prix circuit in a custom-built two-seater race car.

The car, a 3.7 litre V6 Ford Cyclone Hypersonic, is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in just three seconds and has a top speed of 150mph. Furthermore, participants don't need to have passed their driving test to experience this 'ultimate adrenaline rush', as they will be taken for a lap by a professional driver.

“We are always looking for exciting new products and experiences that will appeal to a wide audience, so we are delighted to add The Hypersonic to our extensive collection of driving and riding related Thrills and Experiences,” said Paul Craven-Jones, Head of Activities from the Silverstone Experience Centre. “This passenger ride is a truly unique experience.

“Open to all, it allows members of the public to experience Silverstone and the Grand Prix circuit in a way like never before.”

'The Hypersonic' passenger experience is available in January for a special introductory price of £50.

Ultimate adrenalin rush? No doubt it would be an interesting experience but any off the shelf sports bike would blow it in the weeds on acceleration, top end and, most importantly of all, adrenaline rush.
