About Aston Martin driving experiences

Aston Martins are, of course, the car of choice for a certain Bond, James Bond. Sure, he may tootle around in a Ford Ka in the latest cinematic offering Quantum of Solace, but Bond is a classic Aston Martin driver and we here at Buyagift will disagree with anyone who says otherwise! That coveted Double-0 prefix may endow Bond with a certain je ne sais quoi, but quite obviously it's his wheels that make Bond the chap he is and with our Aston Martin driving experiences that debonair charm can be yours as well.

The Aston Martin has made no less than 10 film appearances since it first appeared on the supercar scene in 1913. An injection of funds from the gloriously-named Louis Zborowski in 1920 made it possible for Aston Martin to begin mass production of its cars. With early successes including world speed and endurance records set at the now disused Brooklands race circuit, Aston Martin quickly established a proud heritage of continued technological development and engineering ingenuity, faultless design and true British understatement.

Our stupendous Aston Martin driving experiences are offered at some of the UK's most prestigious race tracks. Endowed with a top speed of 190mph and boasting acceleration of 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds, the DB9 offers thrills worthy of M him/herself. Or tear about in a V8 Vantage, the leanest and most agile of the current Aston Martin range. All slick lines and 0-60 in 4.7 seconds, any Aston Martin driving experience in one of these iconic cars is sure to leave you stirred and definitely not shaken.

Aston Martin Facts

  • The first appearance of an Aston Martin alongside Bond occurred in the 1964 film Goldfinger. Features not as standard included a passenger ejector seat, an oil slick in the back, and retractable tire-shredders built into the wheel hubs. But of course the supercars you drive during your Buyagift Aston Martin driving day won't have these embellishments, we think.
  • Aston Martin derives its name from one of the company's founders, Lionel Martin, and from the Aston Hill speed hill climb near Aston Clinton in Buckinghamshire.
  • Celebrating the victory of Aston Martin at the 2007 Le Mans 24hr race there was a limited run made of the Aston Martin DB9. Only 124 of this special edition Aston Martin DB9 LM were ever constructed.

    Customer Reviews of Aston Martin Driving Experiences

    The Aston Martin drive was out of this world, loved every second of it. The event at Donnington was very well organised not just for the person driving but also their guests.

    Bought this voucher for my son's 21st birthday. Had a wonderful day out with all the family, everyone was friendly and helpful. The best bit was he had chosen an Aston Martin and the number on his particular car was 007. Worth every penny, although he would have liked to have gone round the track some more, but that's what everyone probably says. Everyone had a great time. Now looking for someone else's special birthday to buy another Gift.

    I gave this Aston Martin driving at Silverstone gift to my dad. We all went to watch him and we all had a fab time. Silverstone is a brilliant place to drive your dream car around. Dad had a 20 minute briefing before we all went down to the pits for him to get a helmet and go to the car. The rest of the family were allowed to get up close to the cars and take pictures. When he went out to do his laps we were able to take pictures of him going past at the finish line. After he was able to go back to the reception and choose his pictures from a professional photographer (these were quite reasonable and great quality). We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and my dad said he would love to do it again!!!
