That area is bad luck for sports cars. Same area as the corvette crash /Ménage à trois. As people have said, nothing good happens after midnight.

Never been a fan of Lambos with the "look at me" styling of the car and bad reliability from what I've heard.  Besides all that, Lambos fall apart at the track.  Porsches FTW!

But that Aventador S looks so nice  :(  Fine, guess it's the 918 Spyder then...

Tesla Model X beats Lamborghini and sets new record in drag race

Tesla Model X and Model S P100DL beat a Lamborghini Aventador in a quarter-mile drag race.
Model X set a new track record for the fastest SUV tested there.

Ahh yes, but that's just a drag race. Let's take the 2 cars to the canyons and see which one handles at high speeds and which one flies off the cliff  ;)

I see your GT3RS and will raise you to the 2018 GT2RS  ;D I'd really love to take that for a test drive...
darn it these kids I've got, really keeps me from all those tempting 2 seater beasts I'd love to get my hands on.

Considering how you drive, maybe that's a good thing. :)

What?! I take offense to that IHO! I'm a damn good driver and my kids are way safer in my European sports car over those soccer moms in minivans distracted by a million things while driving.
People passionate about driving (including track experience) and car enthusiasts are exemplary on the roads over people that can give a hoot.
Give a girl a break  ;) (btw my kids are very proud of my driving skillz)

People would be surprised of how self aware you become after you get instructor training at the track and go out there at speed.  It's like everything slows down on the street and I can almost predict what the guy in front of me will or won't do because I'm so hyper sensitive and have fast reactions.
