Default Gotham Dream Cars Adds Rare Saleen S7 Super Car to Dream Fleet



$4,000 Grants You a Day in One of the World’s Fastest and Most Exclusive Cars in the World

New York, June 19, 2008 -- Gotham Dream Cars (GDC), New York and Miami’s premier “ultra-exotic” car rental company & membership car club, announces the addition of one of the world’s most exclusive super sports cars to its fleet: the Saleen S7. Known to the automotive world as the race car built for the street, the Saleen S7 will now headline GDC’s premier fleet, which includes various models from Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Aston Martin, Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes, and more. With an original base cost of more than $400,000 and fewer than 100 total units built, this 200-mph-plus super car is expected to create a six week waiting list at $4,000 per day.

“The addition of such a rare super car represents the first of a number of special additions we intend to make in the coming months,” stated Noah Lehmann-Haupt, President and CEO of Gotham Dream Cars. “Most people only see unique cars like the Saleen S7 in movies and museums. Gotham Dream Cars is making one available for its clients to drive freely – speed limits permitting.”

The Saleen S7 is America’s super car: a limited production, hand-built masterpiece designed by race drivers and engineers to push the very limits of what is considered legal to drive on the street. GDC’s candy-apple-red Saleen S7 has a naturally aspirated, 7-liter 550 horsepower engine and weighs only 2,750 lbs. The car is constructed entirely of carbon fiber, aluminum and chrome-molly tubing. The Saleen S7 is available at both the company’s New York & Miami facilities and is reserved only for returning GDC customers and members of its exclusive DreamShare exotic car club.

Gotham Dream Cars is the leading source for “ultra-exotic” vehicle rentals and driving experiences in New York, the Northeast, Miami and South Florida. With the country’s largest dedicated and company-owned fleet of exotic cars, GDC’s 20+ vehicles are valued at well over $4 million and are available to its clients by the day, weekend, week or more. The company offers traditional rentals, group driving events (The Dream Car Tour™), and an exclusive fractional-style membership club (DreamShare™) that gives car lovers the joy of exotic car ownership without the hassles of maintaining, insuring, or purchasing the often finicky and always expensive high-end vehicles. Please contact Gotham Dream Cars at 877.2.GOTHAM and visit its website at www.gothamdreamcars.com for more information on what sets it apart from the ordinary.

The wing, if factory, makes it a street Competition package S7. There were not many S7 models (either the NA or TT) that were optioned with the comp equipment.

For the model year of 2003, Two Lizstick Red / Charcoal interior S7 were constructed. Of these two, one was equipped with the competition package. #032.

She is so beautiful. I really like the design of this car, but the wheel is kind of a bummer.
