on the planet.
With news that Formula 1 racing may look to Las Vegas for a future Grand Prix, we find ourselves with horsepower on the brain. The last time F1 visited Sin City was more than 30 years ago but, for now, speed fanatics can get a fix at SpeedVegas, the newest attraction to open in Nevada. The 10-acre motorsports complex has a 1.5-mile track and a multi-million dollar collection of cars, so Vegas gearheads can get behind the wheel of some of the best cars in the world.
The Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Huracán, Mercedes-Benz AMG GT-S, Nissan GT-R, Corvette Z06 and Porsche 911 GT3 are just some of the extraordinary vehicles that make the cut. With a half-mile straightaway, 20-degree banked turns, 60 feet of total elevation change, and 12 sweeping turns, guests will put whatever supercar they choose through its paces.
Never driven on a track before? Not a problem. SpeedVegas welcomes drivers of all skill sets. Whether you've just passed your driver's test or you're Mario Andretti, every package or lap comes with professional coaching from a track instructor, a helmet, and, of course, insurance. Currently, the cost to take, say, a Corvette for a lap is $49; a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 is $69 a lap; and a Ferrari 458 Italia is $89. The four driving packages range from $99–$445—and relatively speaking, that's a small price to pay for a car that retails at upwards of $200,000.
SpeedVegas is just a few minutes from the world-famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign on Exit 25 of Interstate 15 and just 10 minutes from the center of Las Vegas. Then again, it all depends how quickly you drive.
