An interesting conversation developed yesterday about the relevance of, and fantasies surrounding, supercars.
While a 270-mph Bugatti Veyron may not be everyone’s preferred choice of car porn, such cars certainly show the world what is possible on the extreme outer fringes of vehicle engineering.
Fellow car-blogger and all-around-good-guy jgoods made a comment in yesterday’s thread that got me thinking. He said that he doesn’t even own a car and just rents one when needed. Hmmm… maybe instead of aspiring to own an exotic someday, I should save a few bucks towards a super-radical rental for a day or two…
If you’re a fan of the guttural growl of a Maserati, the excessive opulence of a Rolls-Royce, or even wonder what it would cost to rent a Veyron for a day, keep reading, because a day of livin’ the dream isn’t as expensive as you might think! (Unless you want the Veyron…)
Among the more interesting finds:
You can revel in the growl of a Maserati GranTurismo convertible for about $1,200 per day from Imagine Lifestyles in Chicago, or cruise comfortably in a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe from Auto Exotic Rental in Texas for $3,999 per day (or take advantage of their Super Bowl special, $16,999 for four days!)
And that Veyron? Well, unless you’re in the position to actually buy one, you probably still can’t afford the $25,000 per day it costs to rent one from Beverly Hills Rent-A-Car.
I’m certainly not saying any of these are affordable enough for your everyday car rental needs, but for a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime driving experience, why not splurge for a weekend?
Would you consider blowing a couple grand for a weekend of driving an exotic car?
