To create a luxury sports car, auto manufacturers must combine the elegance of a Renaissance sculpture with the speed of da Vinci's rocket-powered roller skates. Enjoy a ride in a masterpiece with today's Groupon: for $129, you get a one-hour driving session in a Lamborghini Gallardo from DFW Drive Your Dream in Haltom City (a $379 value).
Drawing from a stable of luxury sports cars, the auto aficionados at DFW Drive Your Dream seat visitors behind the wheel of a burnt-orange Lamborghini Gallardo for one-hour excursions and high-speed Valentines Day celebrations. Guests begin with a 15-minute orientation, where the staff discloses important vehicle functions, safety precautions, and etiquette for police chases. With an experienced tour coordinator as a passenger, drivers pounce on the accelerator for 45 minutes, flaunting the automobile's all-wheel drive, V-10 engine, and 512 horsepower before following the flame trails on the asphalt back to the garage. DFW Drive Your Dream reserves bookings with an online schedule, which uses color coding to display busyness.
DFW Drive Your Dream
DFW Drive Your Dream grants rubber-burners the opportunity to pilot the industry’s most celebrated sports cars on predetermined routes. Drivers can strap in to experience the massive 400-horsepower motor of the Ferrari 360 Spider, which vibrates with barely tamed power as it climbs to speeds nearing 180 mph. The Gallardo streaks around hairpin turns with all-wheel-drive tires propelled by a 5-liter V10 engine. Ferrari's 483-horsepower F430 has the potential to reach speeds of up to 200 mph, and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster is equipped with an automatic paddleshift gearbox and produces 379 horsepower, or roughly 95 stagecoaches, from a 4.3-liter V8 engine. Top up or top down, the Vantage Roadster maintains its sleek Aston Martin design, earning its place among the iconic cars of today.
