The cars below make up the current Dream Drives for Kids Collection. Keep in mind that not all of these cars are always available for a Dream Drive — sometimes they are in for service or the weather isn't right — but usually these are the cars you can expect to see on at the Dream Drives for Kids Garage.


Lamborghini

Our Lamborghini Murcielago is basically twelve cylinders of hand-built Italian fury. With a gated manual transmission, a straight pipe exhaust, and proper Lamborghini doors, the Murci is one of our most popular cars.




McLaren

Our McLaren MP4-12C Spider, while poorly named, is an incredible British machine. Powered by a twin turbo V8 that puts out 625 HP and featuring an "air brake" integrated into the rear spoiler, the McLaren does it all.




Ferrari

Our Ferrari F430 F1 Spider is one of the best top-down Ferrari ever produced, featuring an "engine under glass" putting out 483 HP via an F1 paddle-shifted transmission — which sounds spectacular when the top is down.




Ferrari

Our Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, built in the exact same spec as our F430 F1 Spider, features a Ferrari V12 engine up front that produces 612 HP and a sound that is very much like the Formula 1 cars of the era — which is to say, glorious.




Mercedes

Our Mercedes SLS AMG is the first Mercedes-Benz built entirely by AMG and is now iconic due to the "gullwing" doors, an homage to the original 300SL Gullwing. This 563 HP beast is wrapped matte black and looks menacing on the road.




Mercedes

Our newest Mercedes AMG, the GTC is a "gentleman's racer" featuring a racing suspension, engine tuned to 557 HP, and an exhaust setup that sounds like a symphony, all in a comfortable top-down package fit for any sunny day.




Shelby

Our Shelby Cobra is a Superformance replica but an amazing machine in every way. A perfect 1965 Cobra SC replica kitted with a 418 cu. in. Ford Windsor engine, this car is the quintessential muscle car! [This car has additional passenger requirements due to having 1965 safety devices.]




Mini

Our Mini Cooper is a rare 35th Anniversary 1997 1.3i factory right hand drive model produced for the Japanese Domestic Market. What it lacks in horsepower (we think it has 90 HP) it makes up in character, style, and sheer awesomeness. Oh, and it's bigger than it looks — but not by much!




Jaguar

Our Jaguar F-Type is a "Special Vehicles Operations" SVR model that features the same lightweight titanium exhaust found in Formula 1 cars — and boy, you can hear it. This 5.0L V8 is supercharged to 575 HP and is as fast as it is beautiful.




Dodge

Our 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR features a 8.4L V10 engine that translates 600 HP into pure, unadulterated speed. The car is said to feature "Darth Vader styling" and is as close to a racing car for the road as we have in the Dream Drives for Kids collection.




Porsche

Our 1997 Porsche GT3 RS is another "race car for the road" that comes complete with roll bars, a wickedly heavy clutch, and few creature comforts. Our car is one of 410 first generation (997.1) units delivered to the United States.




Porsche

Our 2016 Porsche Cayman GT4 is on of the most highlight desired modern Porsches ever made. Built on the perfectly balanced Cayman platform, and fitted with a manual transmission, the GT4 is more at home on the track than it is on the street.




Porsche

Our 1997 Porsche 993 is a rare RAUH-Welt Begriff (RWB) conversion done by Akira Nakai named "Midas Touch". Dramatically wider than a stock 993 with custom fenders, huge wheels, and a GT era wing creating downforce, this car turns heads.




Radical

Our Radical SR3, as you can probably tell, is not street legal so is more of a conversation piece than Dream car. Used for promotional track days and driver training, as part of the Dream Garage tour the SR3 is just fun to sit in and take photos of.

All of these photos were taken by our very talented friend Mark Forton. We are also blessed to benefit from the photographic talents of Lester Tsai and several others in the Portland, Oregon cars + cameras community.
