NEW YORK (March 31, 2010) – Gotham Dream Cars (GDC), New York and Miami’s premier “ultra-exotic” car rental company and membership car club, will hold its second annual Legends Dream Car Tour™ on May 11, 12 and 13 in Englewood, NJ. This intimate experience will put auto enthusiasts behind the wheel of five of the newest Lamborghini models alongside a legend in the automotive community, famed Lamborghini test driver Valentino Balboni.
Participants will have the opportunity to compare and contrast the characteristics of five of Lamborghini’s latest models on an open-road route that spans some of the best driving roads in Northern New Jersey and upstate New York. The vehicle line-up is still being finalized, but cars on the tour will be a selection of Lamborghini’s best, brightest, and newest, which includes the Murciélago LP 640, LP 640 Roadster, Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder, Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni and the Murciélago LP 670 SuperVeloce.
“The Legends Dream Car Tour is one of the most unique experiences available to super car enthusiasts today,” said Noah Lehmann-Haupt, Founder/CEO of Gotham Dream Cars. “After such a successful introduction of his namesake car, the LP 550-2, Valentino Balboni has become even more renowned among auto enthusiasts – if that’s even possible. We’re excited once again to give our customers the chance to experience the newest Lamborghinis with a true ambassador of the Lamborghini brand.”
The Legends Dream Car Tour is a five-hour experience starting with lunch at GDC’s clubhouse in Northern New Jersey, a full vehicle overview and safety presentation, and a meet and greet/photo opp with Mr. Balboni. The tour then will put participants behind the wheel of each of the five cars, including time riding shotgun to Balboni as he leads as the official Grand Marshal. Space on the tours is extremely limited and must be reserved in advance; tickets can be purchased for $1295 per driver. Non-driving passengers can attend free of charge.

In 2009, he was honored with a special limited-edition, rear-wheel drive Lamborghini, the Gallardo LP 550-2 Valentino Balboni, of which only 250 were built.
