What’s new at Dream Racing?
Dream Racing has introduced a new line-up of racing machines, allowing even more thrill seekers the opportunity to drive on track just like the professionals. The new racing division features a variety of luxury supercars including the Ferrari 458 Italia and Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera, McLaren MP4-12C, and Porsche 911 Carrera S.
Why, you ask?
“In the past year we have seen the exhilaration on driver’s faces as they climb out of the racing Ferrari,” said Dream Racing co-owner and former professional race car driver Enrico Bertaggia. “We wanted to offer a similar thrill with an entry level package that was accessible to a greater number of people, whilst keeping the high standards for which we distinguish ourselves.”
“By adding to our Ferrari fleet with street legal makes and models we are able to expand our offerings with a more affordable experience that still gives people the thrill of driving a sports car on a race-track,” adding the company’s co-owner Adriano De Micheli, also a former racing pro.

- The Ferrari 458 Italia is an exotic sports coupe that boasts a 570-horsepower direct-injected 4.5-liter V8 engine and uncompromising design, integrating style with cutting-edge, track-derived technology. Between the F1-style steering column-mounted shift paddles and magnetic fluid-filled shock absorbers, the fiery roadster allows for extremely quick gear changes and reacts instantly to track conditions and driver inputs.
“I love the 458; it’s easy to drive and lots of fun. It’s sort of like wearing a tailor made suit—everything is built around the driver. The McLaren may have amazing technical features, but a skilled driver in the Ferrari 458 can step up to the challenge, making it my favorite car!” Matt Jaskol
- Bringing F1 racing technology and performance to the road, the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano strikes a balance between sport and luxury and is sure to impress with its immense power and torque. What makes this Italian grand touring sports coupe unique is the 6.0-liter V12 engine with more than 600 horsepower.
“Although it’s heavier than the mid-engine cars we have, once you turn on the engine and listen to the powerful V12 engine, you’ll want to take this supercar on the track. Just the fact it’s a Ferrari and a V12—that’s all I need.” Jordan Payne
- The Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera is a modern super car with speed in its lineage. Mainly constructed of carbon fiber, the overall weight of the car is reduced, making it the lightest road-legal Lamborghini in its range . Known for a 5.2 liter V10 engine and an extremely smooth ride, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera will not dissapoint.
“The Lambo is a lot of fun, and what makes it slightly slower than the Ferrari 458 and McLaren is actually what I like about the car! The driver is more in charge, which allows you to drive a perfect lap by managing the weight transfers. Not to mention the sound of the engine and the kick of each gear shift!” Nic Sacco
- With a touch of British engineering, the McLaren MP4-12C showcases technological innovation that truly pushes the boundaries of sports car development. The car not only has a powerful engine with 625 horsepower, but also has the ability to attack corners with precision. On the design end of the spectrum, the leather and faux suede are sewn to Savile Row standards, bringing a touch of elegance to this super car.
“Coming in with a completely different technical approach, the McLaren is just as fast as the Ferrari 458. This is an amazing car with extraordinary care taken during its building process. Just look at the cockpit and you’ll realize what I’m talking about, even before starting the engine! It looks like it’s from the future.” Alessandro Bressan
- Once you turn the key to the Porsche 911 Carrera S, the sound of an exhilarating roar will fill the air. The seventh-generation model of the Porsche 911, the Carrera S is built with a lightweight body featuring aluminum-steel composite construction, 400 horsepower, and accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
“The Carrera deserves a lot of respect because of its racing history and when you drive it, you’ll understand why. Let’s be honest: it has a 3.8L engine with ‘only’ 400hp. It’s hard to compare to other cars that are in the 600hp power range, but these differences are immediately forgotten once you start driving. It can be a lot of fun!” JT Montes
