Bernard’s Limousine Service, Inc., dispatches a fleet of luxury Cadillacs, Lincoln Town Cars, and stretch limos to tote customers across town in style. Professional and courteous drivers pick up clients from all over the metro area and careen them anywhere from the airport and business meetings to weddings and proms. Bernard’s also accommodates large parties with spacious Hummer stretch limos, 15-passenger luxury vans, or the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine.
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into a Ferrari or Lamborghini on a closed course and whip their more than 500-horsepower drive 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 its full potential. Drivers conduct an orchestra of firing pistons and camshafts for three laps before crossing the finish line and parking to the pianissimo of the softly purring V8 engine. Gotham Dream Cars snaps pictures of the sprint, so drivers are sent home with hands they will never wash and a CD of images to parade before jealous coworkers and humbled shopping carts.
If a party contains anywhere from 4 to 15 travelers, it's likely that 17 North Limos has a vehicle that precisely accommodates the group. From Lincoln Town Cars to a stretch Porsche Cayenne limousine, the fleet can handle groups of any size and temperament, whether they're departing for a business trip or partying the night away. All vehicles—even the big GMC party bus—come stocked with water and assorted candies, sweetening up rides to myriad destinations such as the airport, the wedding chapel, or the next stop in a citywide bar hop.
Though it began in 1981 with just one Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, today, Silver Star Limousine operates a fleet of 35 upscale vehicles that range from the antique to the exotic. Drivers can ferry a pair of passengers to a wedding in a 1932 Hupmobile, chauffeur a corporate getaway in a Mercedes Sprinter, or make a quick trip from the airport in a Lincoln Town Car. Each vehicle has been outfitted with technology to reduce its carbon footprint and can travel across the tri-state area. Stretch limos and party buses create an air of mystery for groups of up to 40 passengers, with amenities such as LED light shows, 54-inch plasma TVs, and room for dancing.
Writing a letter or eating a rotisserie chicken aren’t things you should do while driving. During trips to JFK, LaGuardia, Newark, or a range of other locations with drivers from Five Star Limo Car Service Inc., though, patrons don’t have to keep their eyes on the road. As the gleaming vehicles slip through traffic, passengers relax to prepare for stressful business meetings or hammock-modeling gigs.
