$149 for One-Hour Driving Experience in a V8 Ferrari F430 or Ariel Atom ($300 Value)

Before drivers set sail behind the steering wheel of a V8 Ferrari F430 or Ariel Atom, they learn the ins and outs of their roadster during 15 minutes of orientation and instruction. One of Lone Star Exotic Rentals' gear gurus then rides shotgun with drivers, helping to show them the limits of the vehicle and whispering soft nothings into the glove box when the car gets unruly. The one-hour experience includes 45 minutes or 15 miles of driving, whichever comes first, and drivers can choose to streak down a scenic downtown route or a winding path of twists and turns.

Lone Star Exotic Rentals

Lone Star Exotic Rentals's motor heads fulfill driving fantasies by arranging adrenaline-pumping cruises, drawing from a fleet of exotic automobiles that includes makes and models from Lamborghini, Mustang, and Ferrari. Individuals can rent roadsters for up to 24 hours at a stretch, allowing drivers ample time to shout curse words at slow-moving armadillos. Lone Star also offers one-hour excursions, allowing drivers to clutch the steering wheel and downshift through a 15-mile stretch of scenic blacktop.
