Description from the packaging.

Test Drive: Drive five of the world's most exotic cars!
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to experience the power and performance of the world's most exclusive cars, wonder no more.

Accolade's Test Drive puts you behind the wheel of five exceptional automobiles in a driving simulation that is guaranteed to ignite your adrenaline.

Is your heart strapped in?? Good. Hit warp speed in a Ferrari Testarossa, blow the doors off with a Lotus Turbo Esprit, corner until the tires scream in a Porsche 911 Turbo, bring your oil to a boil in a Lamborghini Countach and dust the fuzz in a Corvette.

Test Drive's authentic graphics, sterling sound and lifelike animation allow you to sense the awesome characteristics of each machine. They handle like the real thing. They brake like the real thing. They move like the real thing. In fact, Test Drive is so realistic you'll swear the G-Force has pinned you to your seat.

Accolade's Test Drive. Welcome to life in the fast lane.

The Lanborghini Countach looks fast standing still. But before you attempt to break the land speed record, it might be wise to get a handle on what you're in for. Test Drive provides you with a detailed spec chart on each of the five cars, listing their vital statistics. Please note that this road shark has a top speed of 173 mph. (Gulp) Maybe you'd like to start off a bit slower.

How about the Porsche 911 Turbo? Sure, it's quick (zero to 60 in five seconds flat) but it forged its reputation with precise response and handling. After reviewing the specs, it's time to get down to business. Fire up the 911 and push it to the limit on any of Test Drive's challenging road scenarios. For example, if you'd like to find out if the 911's handling is all that it's cracked up to be, select a winding mountain road.

Watch the road signs zip past your windshield. Test Drive's fluid animation fills you with a thrilling rush of speed. Feast your eyes on the 911's dashboard. Test Drive's graphics are so true-to-life, you'll swear you can smell the leather interior. Push the 911 into the turn. Feel it suck the road like a vacuum. Your radar detector is clean... but check the speedometer. The fuzz ain't friendly in these parts.
