Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car (BHRAC) announced today that it has combined with Gotham Dream Cars (GDC). Both companies will continue to operate as separate brands.

Together, both luxury car rental companies will offer a fleet of more than 400 exotic and luxury vehicles at 12 U.S. locations, including New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newport Beach, Phoenix and San Francisco.

Additionally, Gotham will continue to offer its Dream Car Tour, Dream Car Dash and Dream Car Sprint driving experiences in over 20 additional cities across the U.S.

"The combination of our businesses offers an unprecedented opportunity to expand our prestige service to more of the top markets across the United States," said Laurie Linkiewicz, Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car's directior of sales and marketing.

Both brands offer the latest luxury vehicles including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Mercedes-Benz and BMW. They also offer classic cars with models such as the Corvette Stingray, the Ford Mustang Mach 1 and the Chevy Camaro SS.

Products include daily rentals for personal or corporate use, studio/prep rentals, guided driving experiences and custom corporate events, according to the company.

"GDC was founded because I couldn't find a decent, trustworthy place to try out a supercar," said Noah Lehmann-Haupt, founder and CEO of Gotham Dream Cars. "We fixed that, and in the process, built a business that puts smiles on the faces of tens of thousands of people. I'm thrilled that together with BHRAC we'll be able to continue — and greatly expand — that mission for years to come."

Financial terms were not disclosed.
