What You'll Get
The total output of a car's engine is measured in horsepower, which is a gauge of how many liters of horse powder are lubricating the pistons. Experience equestrian automotive magic with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one half hour behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Gallardo and one half hour with a Ferrari Modena 360 (a $274.75 value) from Steam Sport Technologies, located in Danvers. Pick-ups will be in Danvers, or Steam Sport Technologies may set a more local pick-up site depending on your location.
Steam's ready-and-waiting imported icons let you trade your standard ride––be it subway, bus, or rickshaw––for a day of supertorqued acceleration. With today’s deal, auto enthusiasts and homesick Italian noblemen can enjoy a total of 60 minutes at the tillers of two supercars, with a Steam employee at their side. The Ferrari Modena 360 is a sporty two-seater with a light all-aluminum space-frame chassis, its 3.6-liter V8 engine and 400 bhp of power, taking it from 0 to 62 mph in under 4.7 seconds to give humans the rare thrill of taunting pokey cheetahs. The Lamborghini Gallardo, Lamborghini’s most produced model to date, has a conventional six-speed manual transmission as well as a six-speed, electro-hydraulically controlled, semi-automatic, robotized manual––and runs on nothing but lightning and adrenaline. These supercars afford drivers the best the automotive world has to offer: powerful takeoffs, flawless handling, ice-smooth rides, and the admiration of spectators and passengers alike. Drivers have the option of cruising in automatic or manual mode with a touch of the paddle shifters. Check the FAQ for more information about rental conditions and possible additional fees.
Groupon customers ages 21-24 can rent because there will be a representative in the car.
- The Porsche was everything that was promised. The customer service was very professional and explained the operation of the Porsche clearly. Customer service met us right at the time she promised to be there both for both picking up the Porsche and for dropping it off. – Google Maps reviewer who reviewed on 08/17/10
- Working with Steam was easy and no pressure. Very friendly and accomodating [sic]. The car was ready for me and clean as a whistle. – Philip R., Yelp, 10/8/10
