That must have been an amazing experience with the cars and Tiff Needell.

Congrats! Can't believe you met tiff!! I saw the video and the way Tiff was maneuvering the car, wow, it was awsome. Am sure you might have enjoyed with him. You were just rolling on your seat man!
Very good write up. You lucky bugger. I should do this experience myself. Next year surely.

I cant believe I met Tiff too! He also mentioned that they replace a set of tyres every single day. Infact, just after my drive, it was time to change the tyres. Got a video on my camcorder of Tiff and this other guy changing the tyres on the M3.

Fantastic outing!!!

The Tiff Needell part would have been the most exciting by far. I've seen what he can do with an m3 on Fifth Gear. But to be there sitting right next to him, must have been a surreal experience.

Argh!!! reminds me again that I missed it when I was in London for 3 months! I knew about it when I left for London and yet somehow couldnt find time!!!!!!

If I am not wrong they charge somewhere around 350 pounds for the Lambo.

Not sure about the age limit. You can get all details on their website.

Wowzer.. great experience am sure. Same here, have always been a die hard fan of Lambo over Ferrari.

Now have to do it, went to London for a vacation couple of months back, even thought of doing something like this, but instead did more of art galleries and museums, loved it but reading and looking at the posted pics I feel

Saw an SV in manhattan last month, same color but had custom rims, was parked in the theatre district.
