During the Red Rock Canyon Tour, drivers steer three exotic cars past Red Rock Canyon, splitting their driving time on the guided route and comparing the power of vehicles such as Ferraris and Lamborghinis. The tour typically lasts three hours, with more than an hour spent in cars, and covers 30 miles roundtrip.<p>
World Class Driving
Even though the year 2000 left the world bereft of jetpack-tuxedos, the staff of World Class Driving still believes in a merger of high class and high speeds. They have amassed a collection of 20 supercars—all owned, none rented—through which they share their enthusiasm for velocity with America. Patrons sign up for drives on open roads and racetracks, piloting recent models from Ferrari, Bentley, Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, and Lamborghini. Surrounded by the scarlet shell of a Ferrari 458 Italia, for example, they can propel themselves to 60 miles per hour in a scorching 3.4 seconds.
Although swiftness remains a key element of its creed, the company doesn't shirk on style: steering a Bentley Continental GT, according to the website, is "like driving a very powerful, very deluxe English drawing room." Each car also has an immersive aural component, from the "basso profundo" of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren's side pipes to the adorable mewing of the Jaguar XKR-S as it repeatedly drives over a ball of yarn.
The US Tour XL permits participants to zoom down 120 miles of public road in five of these exotic vehicles by setting up checkpoints along the route. In Las Vegas, customers drive four types of cars during a scenic trip to the Hoover Dam or take out a trio around Red Rock Canyon. The 360 Track Experience, on the other hand, indulges adrenaline cravings with a day of Ferrari Challenge racing at various professional tracks.
