Exotic cars take center stage at Pocono Raceway

You may not be able to live like the one percent, but now you can drive like one-- at least a little bit.
It's part of a summer driving experience at the Pocono Raceway.
"I drove this lovely Ferrari 360 today," said car lover Pablo Arocho.
From Ferraris to Lamborghinis, there's even the style Batman drove in The Dark Knight.
The cavalcade of massive horsepower is part of Signature Car Collections track experience.
Now you, too, can get behind the wheel. At least three different times in May the Newark, N.J.-based exotic car rental company is hosting a dream driving experience at the Pocono Raceway.
For between $300 and $500, adrenaline junkies can drive four laps at the mile-long track.
To get in gear about how to handle the car, a passenger lap is first taken with instructors like Matt Zolgahadr. Then it's your turn.
To get the feel, reporter Bo Koltnow got behind the wheel of a $150,000 Maserati. Before long, he says he hit nearly triple digits and was feeling that power of performance with every hairpin turn of the track.
"Are you ever worried about someone getting in your car and crashing it?" Bo asked car owner Manny Dasilva.
"Not really," he said. "I think everyone should have the experience of driving a Ferrari."
