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 this Groupon.
$699 for a Dream Car Tour for Two with Gift Package ($1,440 Value)
Four-hour Dream Car Tour places pairs behind the wheel of six different luxury automobiles, including the Ferrari F430, the Lamborghini Murcielago, and the Bentley Continental GT. There are two sessions per day–a morning session that starts at 8 a.m. and includes breakfast and an afternoon session at 2 p.m. that includes lunch. A brief safety presentation preludes an overview of each car, wherein experts offer seasoned instruction on how to operate an electronic F-1-style transmission and gun the engine without accidentally starting a drag race. Handpicked by Gotham's staff as the area's best roads, 15 miles of highways, byways, and local lanes will host drivers as they spend 20–30 minutes piloting each vehicle, for a cumulative distance of over 100 miles. A commemorative gift bag contains a certificate of completion, T-shirt, and DVD for each driver, and guests also have the opportunity to download professional snapshots of the experience three days after their ride.
Tours are available on the following days: Tuesday April 24 Wednesday April 25 Thursday April 26 Tuesday May 1 Wednesday May 2 Thursday May 3
Gotham Dream Cars
Gotham Dream Cars lets drivers grip the throttle of exotic speed machines such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DB9, and Bentley Continental GT for personal rental or specialized thrill experiences. During the Dream Car Sprint, auto enthusiasts slip into Ferraris or Lamborghinis on a closed course and 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 its full potential. Riders 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.
