Driving a supercar like the Audi R8, or a brute SUV like the Hummer has been every petrolhead’s dream. These vehicles are usually limited to the dreams of many, something an Indian company called Droom hopes to change, that too, for free. Droom, in association with Uber has introduced ‘Supercars on Demand’. Those interested in participating in this unique campaign, need to have the Uber app downloaded and ready on their smartphone. ‘Supercars on Demand’ will only last for three hours on July 15, 2015, between 1 – 4 pm. Select participants of this campaign will also win surprise gifts. This, along with the tonnes of pictures that you would get to click on your smartphone with some really cool supercars, should make your day.
Rishab Malik, Co-founder & VP of Business Development at Droom said, “We are absolutely thrilled about this one of a kind event that we are hosting along with our partner Uber. Niche luxury cars are now just a click away with Droom. With this latest category, we now offer the widest range of pre-owned, exotic and classy cars for sale. Through this campaign we wish to bring people who have longed to enjoy a first-hand experience of super cars one step closer to owning their very own mean machine.”
Droom is primarily a mobile-first (android and iOS) marketplace, but is also available for download on Desktop platforms. One can use this app to buy/sell new and used automobiles and automobile services. The company was founded in April 2014 in Silicon Valley, USA. It is funded by some of the leading global venture investors and has a founding team with 75 years of combined experience in technology, Internet, E-Commerce and FMCG including 35 years in Silicon Valley. The company has a team of over 85 personnel in its Gurgaon and Silicon Valley offices.
Karun Arya, Communications Lead, South Asia & India, Uber, said, “This is the first time we’re bringing #UberSUPERCARS to India, for real. Uber is all about providing amazing and unique experiences to its riders and this is one way of giving them an opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the supercar ride.” Uber currently operates in over 328 cities in 58 countries across the globe.
