Imagine this scenario.
You have a hot date tonight with the girl of your dreams. You are dressed in your best, your hair is perfect and you smell like a real alpha male. As the time approaches for you to pick up your date you call an Uber, because you are responsible and know that you might drink tonight. However, you really want to impress this girl and want something a little more flashy than your regular Uber. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could book say a Lamborghini or a Maserati to pick her up.
Normally, that wouldn’t be possible, right?
Well, dear alpha male, you are wrong!
Uber Singapore has just answered your prayers because the ride sharing service has just announced a new partnership with car service Dream Drive, that can let you book book legitimate, bonafide, bespoke European supercars to ferry you around Singapore via the app. In a statement, the company said, “we’ve added supercars to the Uber platform”.
According to the company, starting this Saturday, March 21 and ending on May 20, 2015, you will be able to request a 570 horsepower (HP) Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder with a top speed of some 300 km/h or a 454 HP Maserati GranTurismo Coupe, which can go from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds, to come pick you up and take you to your destination in style.
Booking the car is pretty simple. All you have to do is open your Uber app come tomorrow and in the vehicle selection section just pick either the Lamborghini or the Maserati.
The best part is that for the launch weekend, March 21 and 22, 2015, you can ride in these supercars between 10AM and 1PM absolutely free. That’s right, ever dreamed about riding shotgun in these nearly million dollar thoroughbreds, well, for this weekend at least, you can. The free rides are limited to 15 minute slots.
After this weekend, cars will be available Monday to Sunday from 10AM-9PM until May 20, 2015. No cash required, you will be charged through the app.
And now the question I bet you all want to ask. Just how much will it cost me after this free weekend?
Well, the Lamborghini will set you back a base fee of S$200 (US$144) with an additional S$7 (US$5) for each additional minute. The Maserati is somewhat cheaper, with a base fee of S$165 (US$119) with an additional S$7 (US$5) a minute.
But hey to impress the girl of your dream, how much money is too much money?
