MERCEDES-AMG GT S RIDE ALONG
Supercar drive, the foothills of the Colorado Rockies as a backdrop, sharing it with your best friend, what's not to like?
There's a company near Denver, Colorado called Oxotic Supercar Experience where you can get behind the wheel of any of the half a dozen different exotics currently in their stable. These pics highlight the AMG that my best friend chose to drive.
Four different route lengths are currently available: 15 miles, 35 miles, 65 miles, and 105 miles. We did the second option as part of a travel club deal.
At the time we did it, a Gallardo LP550-2 Spyder, a Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera, a Porsche 997.2 911 Turbo, and a McLaren 12 Spider were the other options. A Porsche Cayenne Turbo was used as the lead/camera car.
Two photographers were on hand to capture rolling shots as well as a bit of a photoshoot at the midway point (scenic lake view in the background of the 35 mile route). Plus, all photography was free as part of the package!
Not a bad view.
I think she enjoyed herself.
The rides cool down, post drive.
Managed to catch the next group as they left, and watch the McLaren driver start to drop the hardtop roof. Can't beat the at company for the money.
*** Since this trip, they've added a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Bentley Flying Spur W12, and a Nissan GT-R.
