At www.trackdays.co.uk you can enjoy movie car driving experiences. There are a host of different vehicles available to drive, at locations across the country. But which are the most popular?
Sitting head and shoulders above the rest is the iconic Shelby Mustang GT500E. The “E” is for “Eleanor”, which was the car’s code name in the 2000 blockbuster Gone in 60 Seconds. In the movie, Eleanor is quite a handful for Nicholas Cage. The Shelby Mustang demands respect.
In second place is the unmistakable Ford Escort RS MK1 from Fast & Furious 6. In that film it was driven by the late Paul Walker, as he tried to evade a tank. You’ll be pleased to know that on the track day experience no tanks will be present… hopefully.
The final podium spot, and the only modern car making up the top three, is the Audi R8. Driven by Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man this is a thrill for the senses. On the track you’ll be able to explore the blistering speed of this Audi supercar.
The top ten most popular cars are as follows:
1. Shelby Mustang GT500 “Eleanor” – Gone in 60 Seconds
2. Ford Escort RS MK1 – Fast & Furious 6
3. Audi R8 – Iron Man
4. Shelby Cobra – Bad Boys
5. Nissan GT-R R35 – Furious 7
6. Aston Martin DB5 – Goldfinger
7. Dodge Challenger Hellcat – The Fate of the Furious
8. Ford MustangGT Stage 3 ROUSH – Transformers
9. Dodge Charger – The Dukes of Hazzard
10. Toyota Supra – The Fast and the Furious
Imran Malek, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said:
“It’s great to see that the awesome Shelby Mustang GT500 Eleanor is crowned the celluloid champion and it appears that blockbusters like Gone in 60 Seconds and the incredible Fast and Furious films are inspiring people to experience these awesome motors for themselves.
“Indeed, while thousands of people head to the cinema this summer holiday to catch the latest blockbuster, thrill seekers are making tracks to their closest race circuit to drive a movie car for real!”
So, which can will you choose?
