What makes an exotic car, well, exotic to you? Is it the grueling attention to detail, legitimacy on the track, or purely just the brand? Or maybe you base it on the level of “ooh’s” and “aww’s” it can garner from the public. When all is said and done, most enthusiasts would agree that a beautiful exotic or luxury automobile maintains its supremacy in the automotive space due to a mixture of these elements. Let’s take a look at these elements to better understand what makes our collection of exotic auto rentals so coveted.
There is no doubt that any legitimate exotic starts with its production and the sometimes exorbitant attention to detail that goes on before it hits that shiny showroom floor. Whether it be Sant Agata Bolognese, Maranello, or Coventry, similar mindsets and passionate individuals abound to create our favorite Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Bentleys and more. First and foremost, most, if not all of these brands manufacture by demand, not for stock. Our Bentley Continental Flying Spur rental was just one of about 9,000 Bentleys sold around the world, which in terms of automotive sales, is just a drop in the pond. That level of exclusivity and personal intent alone injects a uniqueness you can’t find in any other class of car.
And although we are around these exotic cars all day, there’s no forgetting how abnormal they really are. To achieve 60 miles per hour in under four seconds and surpass 200 mph is a feat that 99% of cars can’t attest to. Just envisioning that experience makes these beasts seem other-worldly, a notion that is made true once you get into the driving seat and hit the gas. All of this seems topical, though. Sure, exotic cars are really fast and really exclusive, but what really makes us “ooh” and “aaw?” It’s really in our personal perceptions of the brands and the elements we associate with them.
Firstly, there are key brand elements: prancing horse, raging bull, three-pointed star, blue and white checker. It takes just one of these images to produce an onslaught of associations that excite us. For those who have driven one of our exotic auto rentals, these associations may be a bit more dynamic. If not for an exciting getaway, we’d challenge you to test your perceptions of a Lamborghini or a Ferrari by hopping in one of ours. The mystique of not having driven these cars suredly adds to their intrigue, but the best part is that breaking the ice and driving one only makes that intrigue and passion stronger. Also, let your imagination run free. Often times, we associate exotic cars with the people that drive them. Celebrities, business leaders and dignitaries are a few examples of a pool of personalities that are lucky enough to call exotic cars their own, and to drive one translates that level of taste over to you.
In addition, it’s no wonder that there are so many complements to an exotic car experience. Fine wine, art, music are just a few complements that have an equally interesting spectrum of exclusivity. What makes an exotic automobile different, though, is its ability to transcend so many senses and emotions. From the seamless transition of a shift to the hiss of a turbo valve, everything from your sight, hearing, nerves and focus are excited and challenged. The best part is, each and every one of our exotic car rentals has nuances unlike any other, ensuring a unique experience each and every time. One of the best parts of our exotic car experience is that you are able to experience these nuances in one day, and challenge your previous perceptions of each.
As you can see, outside of production numbers publicity, there are so many factors that contribute to how we perceive exotic cars. The best part of our job is to put a smile on the faces of amateurs and seasoned enthusiasts alike and to share the excitement of exotic cars. When all is said and done, you don’t drive these cars to show of your wealth, you drive them to show off your taste and passion.
