{Travel}: Exotic Racing in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Las Vegas 

  Tuesday February 12, 2013

One of my boyfriend's biggest dreams was to one day travel to Las Vegas, rent amazing fast cars, and drive them on a circuit. So..... dream come true! We spent most of the second day of our trip to Las Vegas driving fast cars at a place called Exotic Racing, it was aaaaaaamazing ;)

I went with a very comfy outfit today so that I could focus on my driving. I felt that the red trenchcoat really added some style to a basic white top + jeans outfit.

A LAMBORGHINI GALLARDO!!!

Las Vegas Las Vegas

  The Lamborghini is an amazing car that has a V10 engine, with 550hp, and goes 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. I had the opportunity to drive it on a racing circuit and test out its speed. Let me tell you, that baby is FAST!

I thought I would be freaked out about driving such a fast car, but I found the experience to be extremely exhilarating, thrilling, and downright fun. I wouldn't mind having a Lamborghini someday.... hahaha (keep dreaming).

My father and my boyfriend also drove amazing cars. Both of them drove the Lamborghini Aventador which is the fastest car out of all the ones offered at this company. The Aventador has a V12 engine, with 700hp, and goes 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds!! And just look at how those doors open!!! Amazing right?!

My dad and I even drove at the same time on the circuit! If you look at the bellow two photos, you can see my dad in the orange Aventador and me in the yellow Gallardo!

My boyfriend also decided to drive a Ferrari 458 (V8 engine, and 570hp) and a McLaren MP4-12C (V8 twin-turbo engine, with 600hp). Both amazing!

It was such a fun experience, I can't wait to try it again sometime! Oh, and I have videos of the whoooole thing, so stay tuned ;)

After all the thrill from racing, we decided to relax and visit the famous pawn shop from the hit TV show Pawn Stars. Not only did we see the store, but we were also picked as extras for one of their episodes!! 

So if you see a girl with a red trench coat in the background in one of the upcoming episodes, you now know that's me!

Las Vegas

We finished the night by watching a show called The Las Vegas Show which was also amazing! It was a wonderful second day of our trip, stay tuned to see what we did on our third and last day in Vegas!

We also quickly visited the Venetian, my second favorite Hotel after the Bellagio. It looked just like Venice outside, with gondolas and everything. The inside had the most beautiful elaborate paintings on the ceilings. Simply stunning.

For our first day of the trip, we decided to watch Love, by Cirque du Soleil. For those of you who don't know, its an amazing circus show inspired by the Beatles and their music. 

I've always been a Cirque du Soleil fan, so I really enjoyed seeing all the artistic ideas and beautiful stunts along with the music of the Beatles. It was very magical.

We finished off the night by watching the Fountain show in front of the Bellagio hotel. The water would spray beautifully along with the song "Singing in the Rain". It was the perfect ending to the first day!
