San Francisco is not only a sightseer’s haven, but also an interesting drive. With its “mountainous” terrain, boojy enclaves and the world-famous Lombard street, urban San Francisco is a treat in any of our exoti auto rentals. Choose our beastly yet affordable Ford Mustang Shelby GT rental and transform yourself into Steve McQueen from Bullitt…but we don’t recommend getting yourself into a car chase. Head slightly up north and you’ll be in the most stunning winery settings in the nation: Napa Valley. Check out the Silverado trail which provides 26 miles of great driving upon a road that was built in the 1850′s to accommodate silver miners. Here in Napa Valley there are amazing food, wine and shopping outlets for both discerning and more humble tastes. But, if you’re driving keep away from wine tasting venues because each delicious sip will catch up with you sooner than you think! If you don’t want to miss out there is no need to worry! Out Bentley Continental Flying Spur rental is a stunning addition to any wine tasting journey and our concierge would be happy to find a driver for your party.
Smitten with James Dean? Make your way south and stop by Salinas in our Porsche 550 Spyder Replica and visit the site of James Dean’s famous crash that costed him and his Porsche 550 Spyder their lives. Keep up that southern pace and you’ll arrive at some of the most stunning roads and driving locations ever. Starting just south of Monterey in Carmel and ending in Morro Bay, the Big Sur coastal drive spans a substantial length of Pacific Coast Highway and rises and falls like a roller coaster ride with stunning views from the cliff tops and sheer drops to sandy coves below. Venture a bit inland to San Luis Obispo and enjoy the extend of Morro Bay, experiencing some barren country roads (which can be great for exercising your lead foot), as well as an amazing collection of bird life soaring above your and your dropped convertible top. Enjoying these roads will bring you closer to your exotic auto rental of choice, to your passenger and to yourself, but let’s take a mad dash to southern California for a bit more flash.
Santa Barbara will continue to carry the same feel (driving-wise and scenery-wise) as its central counterparts, but come Malibu and you’re in L.A. baby. Put on your shades and pomp your hair because all eyes will be on you in one of our exotics. Hop on Mulholland Drive north of Beverly Hills and put your exotic to the test. This is a public road that is not for novice driver so be safe and sane…we don’t want to see you and one of our Ferrari rentals on the Jay Leno show for the wrong reasons. Once you’re more into the city, your opportunities are endless in L.A. Venture a bit further south and enjoy the coastal beauty and luxury of Orange County. The auto gathering “Cars & Coffee” originated in the O.C. and showcases some of the most beautiful and exotic cars in southern California.; check it out on a Saturday morning and bring one of our exotic rentals. Big Bear Lake, Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park are scattered south and inland from Orange County and are more diverse and exciting locations to drive.
All in all, California presents us with some of the most varied, beautiful and spirited driving roads in the nation and in the world. Whether you choose our Ferrari 458 Italia, new Noble M400, Aston Martin DB9 or Mercedes E350 BluTec, our local roads in California are the ultimate complement to the exotic auto lifestyle.
