Customers will test-drive the following four sports cars:
- Lamborghini Gallardo
- Ferrari F430
- Dodge Viper SRT10

After breakfast and a quick briefing on the outing’s four vehicles, patrons choose their preferred stretches of road from three preselected routes. As they follow a lead vehicle in a 30- to 40-minute period, drivers alternate manning the wheel of all four rides, behind which they can shift into sixth gear and head up the course’s secret Z axis. Each excursion ends back at Lone Star Exotic Rentals’s office, where photographs and video preserve participant’s reactions to their high-speed experience.<p>
