I love my car. I love that I’m the only one who’s ever owned it; This is my first “new” car. The mileage, the color, all that. I plan to have it for a while.
PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL
But when I crossed the Iowa-South Dakota border in 2019, I noticed the speed limit had gone from 75 to 80 MPH since the last time I was there. I was wondering if drivers in South Dakota push up to 5 or 9 miles per hour over the limit like many drivers do. While wondering, I didn’t do that. 80 is fast enough for me, even though I was in the minority as the vehicles were whizzing around me.
Now if I had driven something like a Lamborghini or a Ferrari or a Porsche, well, yes, I would have opened it.
I thought about this trip recently when I noticed something at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green. I didn’t know there was a race track there where you could hop in a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Porsche and “open it up”.
XTREME EXPERIENCE AT THE NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM
The Xtreme Xperience at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park gives customers the opportunity to do just that. And you can choose the vehicle in which you will do three laps around the course of the park. In addition to the cars I mentioned (including another Porsche), you can also choose from a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, Audi R8 V10, Corvette C8 Z51, or Charger Hellcat Ride-Along.
It’s such a unique attraction, but it makes perfect sense as an add-on to the Corvette Museum.
If you decide to try it–and I’m so tempted–you’ll be able to see yourself in action while driving.
CAN YOU HANDLE A FERRARI?
I guess the museum updates their cars periodically; the Audi and Porsche 718 Cayman are listed as new additions. Apparently they’ve had a McLaren available in the past.
If you’ve never heard of a McLaren, it might be because they don’t make many and the ones they do cost over $300,000. So yeah, you haven’t seen many.
THERE ARE XTREME XPERIENCE LOCATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
Maybe McLarens aren’t offered at Bowling Green right now – and as long as I could open the throttle and take it past 100 MPH, I don’t care – but you might be able to find some an elsewhere. Xtreme Xperience sites are located nationwide.
As one might have guessed, many of these Xtreme Xperiences are located at some of the best NASCAR tracks in the country, like Homestead Miami Speedway, for example.
So how does it sound? Summer means many things; one of them could race down a track at top speed in an exotic supercar.
Who knows? Maybe this is the start of YOUR OWN fast furious film franchise.
