America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one Dream Car Sprint, which features a 100 mph drive in a Ferrari or Lamborghini with a CD of images from the drive, from Gotham Dream Cars (a $249 value). Sprint times can be reserved for various tri-state area locations on select Saturdays and Sundays starting March 15.

Gotham Dream Cars drivers grip the throttle of luxury speed machines, as the Dream Car Sprint saddles auto enthusiasts into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course. Amateur racers will whip their more than 500-horsepower ride three times around the autocross track, learning how to tame their power with the aid of an instructor before coming out of the third lap on a straightaway to open the engine up to 100 mph. Available models include the Lamborghini Gallardo, which shreds asphalt with a midmounted V10 engine and a top speed of 202 mph. The Gallardo's engine howls as its 500 horses hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds. The Rosso Corsa red Ferrari F430 Spider's tiptronic, six-speed semiautomatic transmission smoothly slips into gear like the hands of a Swiss watch. Riders conduct an orchestra of pistons and firing camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine.

Gotham Dream Cars snaps pics of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to be paraded before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts. The CD keepsake also contains a stock video of the guest's chosen vehicle flying around the autocross track at speeds reaching 100 mph. For an additional $25, speed demons can purchase the actual in-car video of their heart-pumping thrill ride.

    “I'm 44 years old. When I was 16 my father tried to teach me to drive and failed. He was 44 years old then. Now I'm 44 so it seemed a propos to invite him to Gotham as a specator. I think he's going to join in later in the season and drive a Ferrari. A fun mid-life crisis melodrama on our end. Full Circle and all that.”

  • “Great event, I wish it was 2 laps longer!! I would have paid to drive again if it were 2 more laps! But awesome time!!”
