We suspect the answer is obvious.

Thanks to you can arrange to do just that or several other exotic supercar experiences guaranteed to get your heart racing along with a high-powered engine.

“Our DXL lifestyle driving programs allow you to sample history, culture, and the exquisite scenery of local destinations and many of our experiences are combined with the finest resort overnight stays, fine dining, special hosts and custom made activities,” states JP Libert, CEO Dojupa Group.

“Our Pro Staff will offer their expertise to help you make the most of your driving experience, whether it be on road or on track," Libert added.

Drive Supercars the Way They’re Meant to be Driven
The reason DXL Driving Director, Didier Theys, likes to drive the fabled 11-mile stretch through North Carolina and Tennessee is also obvious. The DXL Tail of the Dragon Experience begins at the end of Foothills Parkway in Knoxville at the west end of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The 318 curves will insure a memorable experience, but so will the videos, photos, gift bags and hospitality that are all part of the package. The Tail of the Dragon is only the beginning of a 120-mile or more sojourn in a sweet dream car.

You get to pick from the lovely Lamborghini LP 560, Ferrari's phenomenal 458 Italia, the scintillating Mercedes SLS AMG, Audi's superb R8 V10 Spyder, McLaren's techno tour de force, the MP4-12C, the 50-year legend known as the Porsche 911 Carrera S, or last but certainly no least, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

How could any enthusiast avoid a truly exhilarating experience and one of the most unforgettable memories of a lifetime?

The firm also produces similarly inspiring adventures in Malibu, New York, Napa, Austin, Las Vegas and the Baltimore Grand Prix.

If you have a week to spend in Italy, the Forza Tuscany is just for you. Drive DXL’s classic and unique Italian car collection along with the best regional Italian cuisine and wines. A four-night stay includes two days of driving on Medieval Castle Road and Chianti Drive in Florence and the Sienna Area providing the very best of Tuscany.

Get Your Rally Tour On
Owners of exotic luxury sports cars are invited to experience road and track driving in an exclusive and unprecedented VIP environment. The 2013 DXL Rally Tour Program provides the chance to drive winding roads and racetracks with world-class celebrity drivers.

The two events scheduled for 2013 include an Empire State Rally Tour that runs from Jersey City NJ to Monticello, NY and then continues to Limerock, CT and finally The Big Apple. It runs October 4 to 6.

During each event a new car or piece of automobile history or an innovation that created a significant impact in the automobile industry and racing world will be presented. This year, DXL celebrates Aston Martin's 100th Anniversary with an Aston Martin Ride and Drive Road and Track Program.
