Before car racing, checkered flags were used only as symbols of surrender following skirmishes between chess clubs. Leave the board and battles behind with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-hour drive in a V10 Lamborghini Gallardo from Lone Star Exotic Rentals (a $250 value). Drivers must be 21 or older to participate, and have a valid photo ID.
Lone Star Exotic Rentals' motor heads fulfill driving fantasies by arranging adrenaline-pumping cruises in a 500-horsepower, V10 Lamborghini Gallardo. On a scenic 15-mile stretch of black top, drivers clutch the steering wheel and slip through gears seamless with F1-style paddle-shifters as the road monster races to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds, roaring down straightaways faster than a young cheetah chasing an ice-cream truck full of gazelles. One of Lone Star Exotic Rentals' gear gurus 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.
