For all those people that are sick and tired of mid-sized and econo junk being offered as rentals will now have the ability to ride away in style with the Hertz “Dream Car Program.” Hertz is now offering mere mortals the opportunity to taste the good life behind the wheel of some of the hottest supercars on the planet, such as the Ferrari California, the Ferrari F430 Spyder, along with non Ferrari models such as the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the Lamborghini Gallardo.
Prices do vary depending on the vehicle, for as low as $395, you can take the keys to a Porsche Boxster or a Tesla Model S. For those wanting a little more, a $1,000 will get you behind the wheel of an Audi R8 or an Aston Martin Vantage. For those wanting to go all the way, $1,500 will put you in control of a Ferrari 430 or the California.
Hertz is definitely not the first rental car company to offer such a program; they are the largest company to do so. The “Dream Car Program” will be offered in 35 cities across America, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Diego.
