Lamborghini Accademia: A Challenge of the Highest Caliber


When luxury of the highest caliber and the white-knuckle thrills of motorsport converge, an event that transcends compare comes to life. This October, select owners descended upon Las Vegas for the crown jewel of track programs: Lamborghini Accademia.

A rarefied challenge few have had the opportunity to answer, drivers push the limits of speed and control in ways the open road could never match, all while indulging in the finest accommodations in the world. Available in two equally challenging sessions, Intensivo and Avanzato, Accademia is equally defined by its unparalleled prestige and enviable exhilaration.

The decadence was apparent from the very moment Accademia guests arrived in Las Vegas. Towering over The Strip, The Aria Hotel & Casino proved an idyllic residence of luxury in complement to Lamborghini lifestyle. While reservations at this resort are tailored to guests’ every desire, Accademia attendees enjoyed the elevated hospitality of The Aria’s Tower Suites, complete with panoramic views of the surrounding area and a private lounge exclusive to Tower residents. Coupled with luxury airport transportation and personal concierge service, every need was satisfied before ever meeting the track.

Following a welcome cocktail reception was a private commencement dinner for the Accademia class at celebrated eatery, Carbone. An homage to an era of opulence, showmanship, and tableside service, Mario Carbone’s timeless concept is adorned with Rat Pack glamour, dramatic chandeliers, and red-curtained booths. Selections such as Octopus Pizzaiolo, Lobster Fra Diavolo, or Veal Parmesan satisfy the classic Italian-American menu Carbone has perfected.

When not ceding to the lights of the city or reveling in the peerless hospitality, once drivers met the track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, all bets were off. In addition to triple-digit speeds and challenging slaloms, professional Lamborghini instructors guided each driver through one-on-one sessions in a range of Lamborghini models.

These intimate instructional laps not only induced white knuckles as engines reached redlines, but every detail of their laps were individually recorded through telemetry analysis. With this personalized data, the instructors were able to ensure each driver’s mastery over the track improved with every run. Accademia graduates returned from Las Vegas as better drivers and experts in command of their formidable vehicles.

Not only did the Avanzato class perfect their driving skills, they raised the stakes even higher as they felt the power of the monstrous Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo from behind the wheel. Only during Lamborghini’s most advanced track driving programs can non-professionals take command and test the seemingly unreachable limits of a motorsport icon.

As guests departed Las Vegas, many were anxious for their next opportunity to exert their reign over the speedway once again. While track Accademia takes place only once a year, the highly-anticipated Winter Accademia is rapidly approaching – a thrilling opportunity to experience the raw power and handling of Lamborghini’s all-wheel drive vehicles on snow and ice.
