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 >

"The R8 is the perfect example of what happens when you take a high powered Italian engine and give it to one of the most prestigious car manufacturers in the world. It shares many parts and characteristics with the Lamborghini Gallardo. It has style, comfort, and speed, all in one package; and the Advanced Quattro all-wheel-drive makes the R8 very easy to drive fast."

Best experience of my life to ride in a raceway with so many exotic cars. I bought the video and my friends are already making plans to go as soon as possible. The crew is amazing and the drift ride is awesome. I'll come back soon!

My adult son and I had a terrific time at our Las Vegas track day. From the first phone call through the last lap on the track, our experience with Exotics Racing was superb. The cars were in great shape, the facility was very attractive and spotless and even the in-car video (well worth the extra cost) was terrific. I like the option to create a package which works for the participant. Although I expected the experience to be physically challenging, the mental aspects were even more so. We chose five laps with each of three cars and felt at the end that it was perfect.

I had a great time. I drove two cars the day I was there. Both of my instructors were great. They both were very encouraging to help me go faster. Yes there is some waiting around, but you are with fun people and fast cars. Highly recommend taking the time to go for a few laps!

Better than I could have even expected! You really get to experience what these cars are capable of rather than put around at the speed limit. If you like cars and going fast, then I highly recommend this experience.

The experience was great. My family and I were there for the first time and your staff made the experience so easy. We had never driven cars on a race track before and were a little nervous. Next thing we knew we were turning pretty good lap times and had a great time. Thanks to your great staff and we will definitely be back.

This was a birthday present for our 21 year-old son. It could not have gone any better. The entire staff was outstanding from the check-in person to the driver in the car! I've already recommended to this to several friends. We will be back!
