Gas-powered cars will soon be replaced by electric cars, which will be replaced by two-person motorcycles powered by nightmares. Catch some combustion-engine action while you can with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a 60-minute driving experience on a driving course throughout Boston in an Aston Martin DB9, Lotus Elise, Ferrari 360, or other available supercar (a $499 value) from The Motorsport Lab. Driving experiences include 15 minutes of training and 45 minutes on the road. Drivers must present proof of auto insurance to take a ride.
The Motorsport Lab lends speed demons autos from its exotic fleet for adrenaline-pumping spins around the Boston area. Accompanied by a trained instructor, drivers start their engines at Boloco Boston Common. The 15-minute safety and procedural tutorial includes a rundown on paddle-shifter use and the proper way to nonchalantly exude opulence by smoking gold ingots like cigars. Afterward, you and your mentor will begin a 45-minute drive, rolling through Back Bay before you ramp things up on Soldiers Field Road and speed across the Charles River. Finally, take a victory lap around the Boston Common, before your dream-car jaunt comes to an end more satisfying than waking up in your neighbor’s minivan.
Drivers enjoy horseless-carriage romps ensconced in one of The Motorsport Lab's supercars, featuring classic British powerhouses Aston Martin and Lotus. Aston Martin options include the DB9 and the Vantage. Those who prefer the Lotus' modern design can slip in among the Elise's flowing roadster lines. Cars crafted by Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Bentley are also available depending on demand.
The Motor Sport Lab
Feeling the raw power of a Ferrari engine as you floor the pedal and steer down an empty road may seem like a fantasy to some, but it's a perfectly attainable adrenaline fix at The Motorsport Lab. The Lab's driving experts let clients slip behind the wheels of Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, and other exotic automobiles for a once-in-a-lifetime ride.
After explaining the vehicle features and proper safety protocols, staff members turn over the keys. Drivers can gain a feeling for the automobile's speed and cat-like agility while guiding it around a controlled autocross course for several laps. For a truly immersive experience, The Motorsport Lab occasionally rents out their sports cars for weekend-long escapes that let clients travel in style and become the object of envy at any drive-thru.
