Dream cars combine the powerful performance of monster trucks, the luxury of limousines, and the turtle-shell-dodging adroitness of Mario Karts. Get behind the wheel of perfection with today's Groupon: for $700, you get a Dream Car test drive for two from Gotham Dream Cars in Dania Beach (a $1,400 total value). The test drive includes:

- Two DVD slideshows from the event photographer (a $100 value)
The shepherds of Gotham Dream Cars' herd of exotic autos hand drivers the keys to six luxury vehicles and send them off on a 150-mile trek across open roads. Before the tour begins, the drivers each pick three majestic machines, such as a Ferrari F430 Spider, Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DB9, and Bentley Continental GT. To avoid fancy fender-benders, the trained staff preps pilots with safety overviews for each vehicle, highlighting car parts and locating hard-to-find on-off switches. Newly enlightened motorists can then rev their four-wheeled friends' engines and bolt from the garage to explore the surrounding thoroughfares, stopping at designated checkpoints every 20–30 minutes to swap cars and send picture messages to jealous minivans. After the rubber-burning excursion, gift packages shower twosomes with certificates of completion, T-shirts, DVDs, and photographs that instill inner warmth like an affectionate hug from a seatbelt.
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.
