Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Friday, 29 May 2009

To celebrate the grand opening of City of Dreams, a private collection of Dream Machines will be showcased at the City of Dreams, an integrated urban entertainment resort in Macau.

The limited edition McLaren F1 and Enzo Ferrari will be displayed at the property allowing guests a close-up and personal look at two of the worlds most spectacular production sports cars.

The cars will be displayed from 1 June on Level 1 of the mass gaming floor for 6 months.

The McLaren F1 and Enzo Ferrari are the ultimate dream cars for the most discerning individuals, said Mr. Lawrence Ho, Co-Chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment. They echo our aspiration to provide the ultimate leisure and entertainment experience for the new generation of discerning visitors from Asia and around the world. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the private collector for his generosity in sharing his rare collection and for the privilege of presenting these Dream Machines at City of Dreams.

The McLaren F1 won the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race in 1995 and dominated various GT endurance events. With its all carbon composite body and 627 brake horsepower engine, the McLaren F1 can accelerate from standstill to 100 kmh in just over 3 seconds. It held the record of being the worlds fastest production car for over seven years achieving a phenomenal top speed of 387 kmh. Only 64 street versions of the McLaren F1 were ever manufactured and sold.

The Enzo Ferrari is named after Ferraris founder, Enzo Ferrari, and was built in celebration of Ferraris first Formula One World Championship of the new millennium. This dream machine was built using Formula 1 technology and production was limited to only 400. With a 660 brake horsepower engine, the Enzo Ferrari has reached a top speed of 362 kmh. The first 399 cars were sold to an elite group of selected Ferrari customers and the final car was auctioned in 2004 to benefit survivors of the 2004 Tsunami disaster.

The initial opening phase of the City of Dreams features a 420,000-square-foot casino, a diverse array of accommodation consisting of the Crown Towers, the music-inspired Hard Rock Hotel, over 20 restaurants and bars, an impressive array of some of the worlds most sought-after retail brands within The Boulevard, a unique lifestyle precinct operated by leading travel retailer DFS, and the iconic and spectacular audio visual multimedia extravaganza, Dragons Treasure, featured in a dome-shaped theater known as The Bubble, completes the line-up.
