Fantasy or Reality?

by Tracey Toomey 

When you’re paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for your summer rental, you’re not going to commute back and forth with a Toyota Corolla you rented at Hertz.  According to a representative at Gotham Dream Cars, New York and Miami-based exotic car rental company, summer is peak season for luxury car rentals in New York City.  The most popular cars?  Ferraris and Lamborghinis, which can cost between $2500 and $5000 for a weekend.  But, in the grand scheme of things, that’s a steal when you consider that it costs a cool $450,000 to buy a Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster.  Maybe I’m missing something here, but I thought the point of having a 660 horsepower car was to drive fast, not to sit in traffic on the LIE.  Although, if you happen upon a traffic-less stretch on Montauk Highway, it’s a comfort to know you can go from 0-60 in 3.3 seconds.

And they offer door to door delivery.  I’ll have a Chicken Lo Mein and a Bentley please.
