Drive an Audi R8 V10 On a Racetrack!

The Audi R8 V10 is German engineering forged in fiery Italian passion. The R8 definitely has a split personality. On one side, the R8 has all the power of a high performance supercar, yet the R8 has all the style and class of a high end luxury touring model. The R8's exterior is more concept car and sci-fi while at the same time the R8 displays pure muscle and power. The interior of the R8 V10 is built around speed and performance with Audi naming the driver-center cockpit “Monoposto” that translates into “single-seater” and at the same time the Audi is comfortable for two and even has luggage space behind the seats. Maybe the R8’s multiple personality has something to do with the fact that the R8 shares its name with a racecar out of the Audi stable that dominated the endurance circuit before the R8 was even born. Regardless, if you are going to have a split personality in your life, this is the way to do it!  read more >

Hand-built in Neckarsulm, Germany, the R8 uses the Quattro permanent all-wheel drive system and is based on the Lamborghini platform. The fundamental construction of the R8 is based on the Audi Space Frame, and uses an aluminum monocoque, which is built using space frame principles. Development of the R8 began in 2004, with prototypes testing in January 2006, leading up to the official launch in September 2006, at the Pairs Auto Show.

Audi was able to adapt some engineering development from sister-company Lamborghini in the form of the Gallardo V10 engine, transmission and chassis. The V10 engine delivers an astonishing 525 hp at 8,000 rpm with 391 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is delivered at 196 miles per hour with a 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. The R8 utilizes the 6-speed R-Tronic gearbox equipped with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Now, to say that the Audi R8 is nothing more than a Gallardo wearing a different top and badge is absolutely wrong. The R8 may share Lamborghini’s racing DNA, but the Lamborghini lacks all the style and grace that makes the R8 still powerful and gruff, yet classy and refined.

The interior is a solid, comfortable space with lots of head room accented by carbon fiber and plush leather. The interior will have familiar look to it for anyone who accustomed to Audi as the cabin resembles a streetcar more than a racecar. Features include a trendy instrument panel that flaunts a premium music system and navigation.

Exotic and high-performance sports cars vary greatly in style and concept compared to more plebian cars so there is no set class the Audi R8 competes in. This gives the R8 a more universal appeal that is lacking in other high-end performance options and making the R8 one of the best everyday supercars ever made.less >

Wow. 2nd time was even more fun than the first. I drove the R8 - very civilized and tame compared to the Mclaren I drove last year. Took two buddies with me this time, one had driven with me last year. We pretty much agree that it is a great time and well worth the money spent.

The entire experience was fantastic, from the class in the beginning to the driving on the course. I felt comfortable with the car and the instructor as they provided feedback and did not hold you back. We will be returning on EVERY trip to Vegas!

It was a first class experience from start to finish. My only comment would be that there were several options presented at registration in the morning. If I had known about them earlier, I would have been able to take advantage of them.

Had an incredible time. The car selection is awesome and when we made it to the track my instructor (Luigi) made it super fun and really did everything he could to make it a great time. I chose 12 laps which I think was the way to go, your u really don't get a good feel for the car with any less than that. Everyone there was nice and I will definitely be back to drive soon me more cars. Keep up the great work. If your a little skeptical about the price, that leaves immediately when you hit the track.

Exotics Racing was AWESOME!!!! I had a great time and Josh was an excellent instructor. My only issue was that I didn't purchase more laps! I'll definitely be recommending Exotics to others.

This was a surprise gift for my boyfriend and it went down perfectly! From checking in to having to sit through the training course and finally being able to watch my man drive one of his favorite cars around their course it was absolute bliss! Everyone was so nice and you could tell they didn't mind at all having to interact with anyone. They held everyone's interest and of course made sure everyone was kept safe. The cars were incredible and getting to actually look at them and sit in them was definitely a plus I didn't know about but wouldn't complain about either! I couldn't have asked for a better experience and even the prices are worth it! I would totally go through this experience again, except for myself next time!
