‘Chance of a Lifetime Exotic Car Festival’ at Harry’s

Friday, May 10th, 2013

maserati-granturismo-wallpaperThe ultimate car guy’s fantasy comes to life on the Atlantic City Boardwalk on May 15 and 16 as Harry’s Oyster Bar & Seafood Restaurant at Bally’s hosts the ‘Chance of a Lifetime Exotic Car Festival.’

The public is invited to check out a showcase of elite ‘exotic’ cars, and Premier Luxury Rentals  will be offering a once-in-a-lifetime deal to sit behind the wheel of some of the most expensive cars around.

For $500, you can forget about the cars’ large price tags and feed your thirst for speed by driving a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Audi R8 Spider, Maserati GranTurismo, or a Ferrari California Convertible.

On Wednesday, May 15, the cars will cruise down the Atlantic City Boardwalk — from Showboat to Bally’s — starting at noon. The cars will then be parked on the boards for car lovers on a budget who would like to pose with and take pictures of the racing machines.

The festival will also feature live music and vendors. Harry’s will be featuring revved up specials as well.

TravelandLeisure.com has listed the Atlantic City Boardwalk among “America’s Best Beach Boardwalks.” The Web site says that about 60 U.S. coastal towns have boardwalks, and roughly 25 percent of those include amusement parks that come alive in summer. It lists A.C.’s four-mile stretch of boards No. 3 on a list of 12 iconic Boardwalks across the nation, including Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY, and Virginia Beach Boardwalk on the East Coast, and Long Beach, Hollywood and Santa Cruz boardwalks (all in California) on the West Coast.
“We are honored that Travel and Leisure Online has recognized our Boardwalk as one of the nation’s best,” says Jeff Vasser, president of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, in a media release. “The Boardwalk continues to be a signature tourist attraction year after year and we’re proud to be included in such great company.”
