Vegas Auto Attraction Accessible Only By Monorail, Not Car

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A new auto attraction in Las Vegas is giving car buffs reason to be “auto” their minds.

It’s called The Drive and allows gear heads to test drive GM cars on two tracks: one a paved road with jogs, turns and chicanes; the other an off-road trail with ditches, moguls and other obstacles such as a 15-foot dirt ramp.

The Drive is designed to let consumers try out cars under situations not normally allowed by regular car dealers, but GM spokesman Christie Conti says hard driving, not the hard sell is the intent.

As she puts it, “No one is going to try and sell you a car but you can drive [the car] in a way you wouldn’t on an ordinary test drive.”

The Drive has its grand opening today (Apr. 5) and will open to the public on April 10.

Amazingly, even though the attraction is geared to auto fans, the only way they’ll be able to get there is by taking the Las Vegas monorail.
