| Join the 200mph Club. All you need is $4500!
|For those of you with an extra $4500 to spend, the folks at WorldClassDriving.com can,
for an afternoon, put you in the driver's seat of a 200 mph exotic car.

The cars include:
- Ferrari 430 Scudera
- Ford GT
- Lamborghini Gallardo LP560
- Ferrari 599 GTB and
- Mercedes McLaren SLR
Not your average "Daily Drivers"!
WorldClassDriving obviously doesn't put you in the seat of one of these beasts without providing you a bit of instruction.
WCD's instructors will, at the end of your instruction, allow you to hit the top speed they feel you can safely handle.
You can't drive 55, but they make sure you don't do 200 if yoiu can't handle it.
Plus, they keep ans instructor in the car with you.
This is a whole day affair, running from 8 am until 5:30.
The whole event occurs at an abandoned airport in the Miami/Dade county area that was intended to handle
the Super Sonic Transport (SST)......remembert that? The Concorde was the Euro version of this plane.
The SST needed a very ling runway to take off and land, so 40 years ago, the Everglades Jetport was built.
The Jetport has a 10,499 foot long runway.
That is about all the Jetport has......except for a small out-building for the Jetport's manager.
Sounds like a lonely job!
But.....2 miles of flat, straight, level pavement to put the hammer down!
For those select 200 individuals of you, and you know who you are, this sounds like the gift for
someone who has everything.
For additional information, and to live vicariously through others, check out WCD's website and this
additional story over at our friends at Autoweek.com. Those lucky souls were able to drive a Koenigsegg CCX past the 200 MPH barrier. I guess they just live right!
