AUGUSTA---The Callaway Tour Van is in town, and we got a special treat when we stopped by. They put us behind the wheel of a brand new Lamborghini.

We had an opportunity to test drive the super expensive ride as they promoted their partnership with Callaway Golf.

"It's to really promote both brands and promote the technology that we're trying to improve together as a partnership,'" said Kelly Snyder, who works for the car company.

The two companies came together to work on carbon fiber technology.

Think of the Tour Van almost like a pit crew team for NASCAR drivers. The club fitting technicians check out the pro's swing and make any adjustments to ensure he feels comfortable with his clubs/swing before heading into Thursday's tournament. You'll get to experience the club-fitting technology and see how small adjustments make a huge impact on how the guys perform during the tournament.

The company says the Lamborghini is a "cool" incentive to stop by. The car will not be on the market for another month.
