People who own a Jaguar experience fun, adventure and excitement. Understanding this unique culture, Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas brings its owners together for road trips for the ultimate enjoyment of driving a Jaguar.
For a recent adventure, I rode with a friend who owns a new Jaguar F-type high performance edition. We began our day at the Jaguar Land Rover Las Vegas dealership with a continental breakfast where I also had the opportunity to speak with another woman who is driving her second Jaguar.
She told me about the features, price point and that it was one of the quietest cars inside as she hears very little road noise. The businesswoman often uses the car phone system for calls pertaining to her business, making a good system very important. She also shared that she had been involved in a direct impact collision, but was okay and the car had very little damage. I was extremely impressed with the safety features and was ready to buy a Jaguar that morning.
We then drove to the Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch located in Pahrump (springmountainmotorsports.com). After taking some fun photos, we were given instructions and an overview about driving on the track. We donned our helmets, enjoyed a picnic lunch and then headed to the track.
I got to ride with one of the instructors, a former NASCAR driver with years of professional driving experience. The acceleration was fast, braking hard and the turns tight, but it was intense and fun! We were in an F-type car, which handled so well. It was a crazy but exhilarating ride.
The seats are so comfortable with many ways to adjust including what I call hug handles. I can set how much the sides of the seat will hug and support me. The displays in the cars are extremely easy to read and operate. The car drove extremely smooth in turns, on the road and it was nearly seamless at any speed. Having had the experience I did with the owners’ event, I am highly impressed with Jaguars.
