Step away from the Zipcar — we've got more in mind than a spin around town in a Fiat Daxter.
This weekend, we're thinking a Lamborghini Huracán roaring down the PCH. Or a McLaren hightailing across the desert. Or leaf-peeping in a pristine Range Rover.
And we've got the skinny on five of the dreamiest rides you can commandeer, along with custom itineraries to pair with each.
Car: Lamborghini Huracan
Cost per day: $2200 (with 50 miles included; $3 each additional)
Head here: Could there be a more attention-getting way to celebrate the reopening of the Big Sur link to the outside world? Vroom-vroom down the PCH, please.
Car: Ferrari 458
The pitch: "The 458 Italia continues the Ferrari tradition of putting the pleasure into driving as a result of pure power and speed.
Cost per day: $1750 (with 50 mile included; $2 each additional)
Head here: This would be a pretty suitable way to roll up to the new Silicon Valley Nobu, no?
Car: McLaren’s MP4-12C
The pitch: "The MP4-12C easily ranks among the top ten great exotic cars, delivering 616 horsepower from its mid-mounted V8 engine for blistering performance both on and off the track."
Cost per day: $1500 (with 50 miles included; $2 each additional)
Head here: Time for a road trip — so point it south on the I-5 and let's power down to some primal desert landscapes.
Car: Porsche 911
The pitch: "The new 911 is a race-ready limited edition that is likely already sold out as you read this."
Cost per day: $1199 (with 50 miles included; $1 each additional)
Head here: This is a pretty standard-issue car in this neck of the literal woods, but it's still fun for touring around the lake.
Car: Land Rover Range Rover
The pitch: None offered — maybe they think the car speaks for itself?
Cost per day: $599 (with 50 miles included; $.50 each additional)
Head here: How about anywhere with fall foliage? Just figure out the best campsite within peak foliage range with the help of Hipcamp's handy map.
