Vegas This Weekend - Exotic Car Racing!

Ok guys, I'm going to Vegas this weekend for my birthday and I was going to see if I could swing doing this car racing experience. I wanted to see your guys opinions on which car to drive. I have road racing experience under my belt, used to race all the time before I got the Jeep, so no car scares me. Here is the link with what cars I can choose from. I would say the only one I'm going to stay away from is the Aston Martin, because that one gets way too expensive. I've ALWAYS wanted to drive a Ferrari, but I'm open to opinions. Let me know what you think! And yes, BE JEALOUS!

I've never liked Lambo's, but I guess if were were picking strictly off horsepower, the Aventador would be the way to go. But, that one is $499 for 5 laps. A little out of my price range I think.

I would definitely go with the 458. The maclaren doesn't look that bad either

If you are going to stay under $300...I would go with the Ferrari F430 F1 or the SLS AMG. Those two seem like the best value and both cars you probably wouldn't get to drive otherwise.

I think I would go with the Ferrari 430 Scuderia, I've always loved those, maybe not as fast as the 458 but I just love the look of them. The McLaren would be tempting also. I think you should stick with one of the Ferrari's though as you said you have always wanted to drive one. You are going to have a chance & don't know if when it will come up again. I'm sure you would have a blast driving any of them though. Yes I am jealous

I have driven quite a few of those vehicles, and actually did one of the exotic racing experiences before. The 458 Italia is an absolute blast to drive. I've always wanted to drive an aventador though so if it were me I would choose that one.
