Head to Head: The Cars of SummerSpeed

By Dan July 10, 2015

Our exclusive SummerSpeed event takes place at Brands Hatch next month and to get revved up and ready for it, we thought we’d take a look at some the supercars that will be gracing the track on the day.

RLD's very own SummerSpeed event

Ferrari 360

First introduced to the racing scene in 1999, this sleek red speed demon is now considered a modern motoring icon.

The Ferari 360 will be available at SummerSpeed

  • Acceleration rate: 0 – 60 mph in 3.7 seconds
  • Top Speed: 190 mph
  • bhp: 540

Did you know? The 2000 – 2005 360 Modena and Spider are the best-selling models of Ferrari ever sold.

McLaren MP4-12C

One of McLaren’s most mighty racing marques, the MP4 is a force to be reckoned with – both on the road and on the track.

McLaren MP4-12C will be at RLD's SummerSpeed

  • Acceleration rate: 0 – 60 mph in 3.1 seconds
  • Top speed: 205 mph
  • bhp: 592

Did you know? All in-car content (from the engine to the switch gear) is designed by McLaren in-house; unique to the MP4-12C.

Ariel Atom

Also known as the ‘pocket rocket’, this celebrated racing sensation is as close it comes to feeling like a real F1 driver!

The Ariel Atom is ready to be driven at SummerSpeed

  • Acceleration rate: 0 – 60 in 2.7 seconds
  • Top speed: 155 mph
  • bhp: 350

Did you know? Each Ariel Atom is built to order for its owner, who can choose from a variety of different options.

Nissan GT-R

Boasting 4WD and two turbochargers, this motoring beast packs a real punch on the race track.

The Nissan GT-R is going to be available at SummerSpeed

  • Acceleration rate: 0 – 60 in 3.2 seconds
  • Top speed: 195 mph
  • bhp: 473

Did you know? All Nissan GT-R engines are build entirely by hand by one of Nissan’s four motoring experts.

If you’d like to try out one of these racing giants at Brands Hatch, get yourself down to our exclusive SummerSpeed event on 26 August 2015 – if you book in advance, you’ll even get four extra day passes to the event, worth £20. Fun for all the family!
