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, a 100 mph drive in a Ferrari or Lamborghini with a CD of photos from the drive, at Gotham Dream Cars in Dania Beach (a $250 value). Sprint times may be reserved on select Saturdays and Sundays from November through March 2012.
Gotham Dream Cars drivers grip the throttle on a fleet 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 500-horsepower ride three times around the track, 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 205 mph. The Gallardo's engine howls as its 500 horses flirt with an 8,000 rpm redline. Hitting 60 mph in well under 4 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.
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.
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.
