Cars are cool because they are essentially big, strong robots that you can get inside and control. The world is better than you thought with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $159 for three laps in one luxury supercar on a professional road course, November 29–December 2 (a $399 value)
- $259 for three laps each in two luxury supercars on a professional road course, November 29–December 2 (a $798 value)
After taking pictures and pinching themselves to ensure they're awake, patrons get behind the wheel of a luxury supercar such as a Porsche 911 (997) Turbo, Lamborghini LP560, Audi R8, or Ferrari F430, all of which have automatic transmissions with paddle shifters. Both options begin with a quick, 30-minute instruction on racing fundamentals and safety overviews for the vehicles and the course. After the short class, drivers slap on a helmet, throw on some gloves, and prepare for three laps on the Firebird International Raceway, which combines a quarter-mile drag strip and professional road course. The second option lets patrons blast through three laps in one car, then strap in behind the wheel of a second car for another trio of go-arounds. Both options take roughly two hours total. An instructor remains in the car to enhance the driving experience, and a professional driver is also available to take passengers around the course.
Xtreme Xperience was founded by a pair of car aficionados who understand the thrill of commanding a $253,000 piece of four-wheeled poetry in motion, like the Lamborghini LP560. They know that exaggerating the pronunciation of Porsche is only half as fun as horsewhipping its 530 horsepower from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds. They realize that the Ferrari F430's supercharged Launch Control console button is too irresistible not to push coming out of every red light and into every dark, quiet, and hopefully vacant train tunnel. The smooth, spaceship-esque aluminum body shell of the Audi R8 makes them appreciate how discreet something like 782 rivets, 382 self-tapping screws, and more than 300 feet of welding can be. The people at Xtreme Xperience love supercars, and they love matchmaking them to other car enthusiasts who live to cruise across the great, oil-stained arteries of the American interstate-highway system.
