Want to know what it's like driving the fastest car in the world?

Now you too can experience the thrill of breaking the World Land Speed Record on our 4D Land Speed Record Simulator! 

Take your seat, buckle up, and discover for yourself what it's like to drive faster than the speed of sound, across the Black Rock Desert in America...



The possibility of driving the fastest car on earth has gripped the imaginations of many men and women since the first land speed record was set in 1898. Back then, the top speed achieved was just under 40 miles per hour (mph). Today, it stands at over 760mph – faster than the speed of sound.

Our amazing simulator will let you experience the thrill of the land speed record attempt.
