More detailed description >

Description:
The SLS is the first Mercedes designed in-house by AMG and is one of the most alluring sports cars of the 21st century. The follow up to the SLS is the AMG GTS, a biturbo V8 that produces 500 horsepower. The GTS is light and agile, making it one of the best handling supercars.

As described by Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, "This is not just the greatest car Mercedes makes right now, I think, it's the greatest car in the world."

Your day at the track will start with a technical briefing where your professional instructor will go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles like the Mercedes AMG GTS, and how to find the optimum racing lines on the course.

Next, you'll be taken on two discovery laps in a Porsche Cayenne GTS with a professional driver showing you how to optimize your laps on the track.

Then you'll get behind the wheel of the Mercedes AMG GTS and unleash on the Las Vegas Speedway Road Course.

The Las Vegas Speedway Road Course: The Road Course is located on the impressive Las Vegas Motor Speedway complex. The longest and most commonly ran configuration is 1.2 miles with 7 different turns and uses both the 1,800 ft. straight away as well as the very high speed banked bowl turn where you really get to experience what a supercar can do at speeds well above what's legal on any road in the United States.

Mercedes / Lamborghini Combo packages: For those of you who want it all, select one of our Mercedes AMG GTS /Lamborghini Gallardo LP550 combo packages and drive both the Mercedes AMG GTS and the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550. This is the ultimate driving experience giving you the chance to race two of the most legendary vehicles ever made.

For additional car combination options not listed, please call Cloud 9 Living for pricing.

Get ready for the ultimate racing experience that you will never forget!
