Ever dreamt of driving the most powerful and fastest cars to ever race? Well your dream has just come true, with the launch of the GP Experience at a price tag of $6995. No matter how rich you are, how powerful you may be, or how much you love speed, the chance to drive an F1 car in the flesh is one in a million with only few lucky and the fastest men on the earth ever getting a chance to drive one such 750bhp beast.

The GP Experience is the one of its kind program in North America, where a person gets the chance to drive and ride in an authentic Formula One car. The one day program will include initial lapping in go-karts for instructions and later stepping up to Supercars. But the best part is the climax where one gets to do three laps in one of the GP Experience's former F1 cars.

The car will be a 600 HP generating machine built on a chassis of an former F1 car from 2005-2008 powered by a V10 engine provided by the Crossworth, Judd and Peugeot. A  press release from the company also claims that, a person can get an opportunity to drive Kimi Raikkonen's 2012 Lotul F1 car after he graduates from the first level of the program and keeps on training hard.

"Our program was developed with the expertise of LRS Formula is very unique and exclusive for F1 enthusiasts in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. More importantly, after you've signed up for and graduated the first level of The GP Experience, you become eligible for more laps as part of our GP Driver's club with access to Kimi Raikkonen's E20 Lotus - the very same car he raced in the 2012 World Championship at Circuit Of the Americas," says Jean Paul Libert, Co-Founder of the program.

Obviously, it's a lot of price for a single day track event, but this is the cheapest one can ever pay to drive an F1 car. We recommend you to start saving the money and indulge in something which will give you an out of the world experience.
