My first time with a “supercar” was in Las Vegas. After losing the chance to ride one in Los Angeles, once I got to the vice town, my thought was fixed on her… a Lamborghini!

After a long search for the various possibilities to rent a supercar of this kind, I finally found one of the best (TripAdvisor). This place offered me half an hour, without the need for a deposit driving around the streets of Las Vegas like the Strips and Las Vegas Boulevard. And here I go…

It took me at least 10 minutes to understand the diversity of this car compared to any other I had ever driven before. First there is the very low driving position and then the rigidity that makes it certainly not easy to drive in the 5:30 pm traffic of Las Vegas, but incredibly stable at over 180 km / h (110 mph) achieved in a few seconds, unloading all 520 horses with the sequential shift at the wheel and I was only in the third gear…

Yes, the photo is a little bit blurry, but the speed at that time was very fast. I did not even see the famous “Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas” sign!

Here, after slowing down, following Las Vegas Boulevard…

The acceleration of this car is very impressive. At the wheel, you have a feeling of power by crushing your foot on the accelerator which pushes you back into the seat…

Here’s still a few pictures of that day…
