Fancy driving a McLaren P1 at 200mph?

Of course you do. And how about a LaFerrari and Porsche 918 on the same day? It's not a trick question.

In something that could have previously seemed completely unattainable to us mere mortals, Auto Vivendi are are now giving petrol heads the chance to do just that at their Hypercar Holy Trinity events next year. For the small price of just £6250 + vat that is. You didn't think it was going to be cheap did you? This ain't no go kart grand prix with your mates - this is the real deal.

Your hard earned money doesn't just buy you the holy trinity either, the London based supercar driving club will first allow participants to warm up in 3 also very capable but slightly less exclusive supercars from the same manufacturers including a Ferrari 458 Italia, McLaren MP4-12C and Porsche 911 Turbo S. So, not a bad day in all really. That adds up to (if our calculations are correct) a staggering 4458hp and a lot of torques that you get to sample on a rather nice day out at Leicestershire's famous Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground.

Naturally, Auto Vivendi will also throw in a qualified race instructor and ample refreshments to keep your thirst quenched whilst you sample the delights of hitting 62 mph in 2.8 seconds with the McLaren P1. The LaFerrari manages the same spring in a still very swift 3 seconds with bonkers Porsche hitting the milestone in a frankly silly 2.6 seconds thanks to its clever 4 wheel drive system.

Thankfully with the event being hosted at Bruntingthorpe, there's also plenty of space and drivers should be able to comfortably break the 200mph barrier. Let's face it, this is definitely an experience that will give you plenty to talk about round the table at a dinner party. After all, 200mph is usually a speed reserved for racing drivers, professional supercar testers and dead people.

Dates are yet to be confirmed but Auto Vivendi will be hosting the event several times through 2016. As an added incentive, buyers can book before 30th September to get the experience at a discounted £6250 + vat per person (usually £7250 + vat) or a 20 person exclusive group rate of £100,000 + vat (usually £120,000 + vat).
