Turn 12. Probably just an open trackday, they have them pretty frequently. Costs $600 for two days, $400 for just a Sunday, so that gives you an idea of the machines that show up there.

I've done 2 event with G&W Motorsports. Their Fall Fling was between $250 and $300 dollars, and that was 8 half hour sessions of solo open track time over the weekend (as well as an included banquet and long-sleeved shirt ). I've also done a HPDE with NASA there, and had 7 25-minute instructed sessions for $300 over the weekend.

A lot of hyper-exotics DO come with proper instruction, if you want it....

I know Porsche will teach you how to drive your own car out in Germany. I think the Italians do the same.....

Yes, it should be expected, these cars can do things normal cars can't, but it's all relative, most people with money who buy these kinds of cars treat it like your average middle class person would treat a $30,000 car.

With the price he can sell the parts for he could probably end up building a modified RS8. I bet it's just as fun as the lambo.... in a sports compact car kind of way....

The nice thing about being rich is that you don't have to worry about things when you break them. Let's just say that Lamborghini doesn't really have a financial organization for loans and leases. It's more like buying an iPod to these guys. At least it died an honorable death and didn't burn in a garage fire or something. At least it was only a Diablo and not a Murcielago
