Gotham Dreamcars Expands Meaning of "Rent-a-Racer"

gotham dreamcars expands meaning of rent a racer

You say you have a class reunion coming up and just can't show up in your eight-year-old Corolla? Well, cheer up Bunkie– that's what rental cars are for. And since anything worth doing is worth doing right, Gotham Dream Cars has just the car for you. For a mere $4000/day (plus insurance) you can make your grand entrance in a Saleen S7. However, if you want one of the supercars, you'll need to plan ahead– Gotham expects a six week (or longer) wait list. They'll have one in both their New York and Miami locations but to rent one you have to be a "returning GDC customer" or member of their "exclusive DreamShare exotic car club." You can also bet there'll be some bodacious restrictions on far you can take it or what you can do with it. Hmmm… I can get a direct flight from Atlanta to NYC or Miami reasonably cheap, and a membership in their DreamShare club can't be that much, can it? RF, how much money do we have in the road test budget???? (Hat tip to gizmag )

    This service will be a hit with the music video industry.

    $4,000/day AND a six week waiting list? Are there really that many people looking to part with $4,000 to floss a bit at their class reunions? Sorry to sound skeptical, but it’s a different economy these days…. Good luck to ‘em. The rich people are still rich. What's really so different?

    The rich people are still rich. What’s really so different? Sure, I'll buy that. My question is more, if you're rich why are you renting a ride for your reunion?

    I spent the day in a Corvette ZHZ. I LOVED it.. Shelby factory/museum followed by Lake Mead/Hoover Dam then Red Rock. Thanks Hertz for your reasonable price. Now off to the strip for even more fun ;-)
