What would a perfect birthday present for a gearhead consist of? A morning drive in your Lamborghini? The Lamborghini drive with a group of 30 friends in their cars? How about the drive ending up in an airport with a high performance Aero L-39 Albatros jet waiting to take you for a ride?
Fall foliage in the North East is always a beautiful sight to witness.

The turnout was impressive and very diverse, everything from Porsche 918 Spider and green McLaren 650S Spider to multiple Aventadors, Huracan, Ferraris, Black Series SLS AMG, Ford GT, new GT3s, Vipers and many more…

6:00am start to an event is way too early for a lazy summer weekend, but the advantages are completely empty roads and no traffic on the way home after breakfast. A dozen DFCers took part in this drive that started in Fort Lee, NJ and ended at the Skytop Lodge in the Pocono mountains of PA.

The usual high heeled girls stumbling over the cobblestones of MeatPacking District was replaced with low profile high performance tires as DFC met up early on a Sunday morning to go for a drive. Over 20 cars including Lamborghinis, Ferraris, McLarens and more participated in the drive that took the group to the top of Bear Mountain then back down for brunch at Chart House in Weehawken, NJ.
