NEW YORK, NEW YORK (April 21, 2009) – Gotham Dream Cars (GDC), New York and Miami’s premier “ultra-exotic” car rental company and membership car club, will hold their first-ever Legends Dream Car Tour™ on June 9 and 10, 2009. This intimate event will give car lovers and Lamborghini enthusiasts the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive the latest Lamborghinis alongside famed Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni on more than 150 miles of scenic, open roads in the New York area.
“The Dream Car Tour allows people to escape for a day while driving the cars of their dreams, whether they’re Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, or Aston Martins,” said Noah Lehmann-Haupt, Founder/CEO of Gotham Dream Cars. “We created the Legends Dream Car Tour to offer enthusiasts the chance to blow off some steam and at the same time have an up-close and personal experience with automotive legends. We are excited to announce Valentino Balboni will be our inaugural Grand Marshal, and are pleased to invite enthusiasts to meet, drive with, and commemorate Lamborghini’s most legendary driver in an adrenaline packed, four hour drive.”
The Legends Dream Car Tour will consist of a morning session (8 a.m. – 1 p.m.) and afternoon session (2 p.m. – 7 p.m.) on both June 9 and 10. The Tour will allow participants the chance to spend time with Balboni and pilot several of the newest Lamborghini models including the successor to the best-selling Lamborghini of all time, the Gallardo LP 560-4, along with the Gallardo Spyder, the Murciélago and the ultra-powerful Murciélago LP 640.
Each tour will include breakfast or lunch (depending on which session participants select) at GDC’s clubhouse in Northern New Jersey, a full vehicle overview and safety presentation, and a meet and greet with Balboni. The Tour will then put participants behind the wheel of each of the five cars, including time riding shotgun to Balboni as he leads the tour as the Grand Marshal. Seats for the tour must be reserved in advance, and can be purchased for $1495 per driver. Non-driving passengers can attend free of charge. There will be four tours offered for a total of two days, with space limited to a total of only 40 spots.
