Little comes close to the allure of a luxury vehicle’s seductive engine power and sleek design–and with Luxury Rental Directory, you’re closer than ever to experiencing one for yourself, whether you’re a first-timer or a connoisseur. Take a look at our top five luxury and exotic vehicles and take your pick.
1. Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
At once sharp and curvaceous, the futuristic design of this luxe supercar is only for the bold. The elongated body of the Aventador suggests its time-warping ability to rocket from 0 to 100 miles per hour in a mere three seconds. Yes, you read that right: three seconds. It’s possible thanks to the Aventador’s V12 engine, which delivers a horsepower of 700. Feel that power under your control with the extra-smooth handling and prepare to rule the road.
2. Bentley Continental GTC Convertible
The open-top version of the Continental GTC Coupe is tough and vigorous, with a W12 twin turbo engine and a power of 590 PS—which is all the more impressive for is three-ton weight. We wouldn’t be doing a Bentley justice if we stayed fixated on the technical details, however, since a Bentley is all about the styling. Naturally, the Continental GTC has it in spades. From its chrome grill to its redesigned steering wheel to its increased storage reconfigured for greater accessibility, this luxury vehicle excels in exterior and interior design. Did we mention neck warmers and noise reducing windows?
3. Audi R8
The Audi R8 is a 360-degree supercar experience for all of your senses. The smell of rich leather couples with the sound of a 560-horsepower V10 engine that accelerates to 60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds, with a maximum speed of 205 miles per hour. Plus, the Bluetooth wireless for mobile devices and Bang & Olufsen® audio system lets you blast that heart-pumping playlist. The R8 looks and feels good, too: you can whip the strong, lightweight aluminum body around the tightest curves thanks to Audi’s signature quattro® all-wheel drive system. It’s luxury that you can almost taste.
4. BMW i8
Sure, the BMW i8 has all the aerodynamic curves of a sports car, not to mention the powerful, all-wheel drive performance with a horsepower of 357 and 420 lb-ft. of torque. But you might be surprised by what’s under the hood: the i8 is a petro-electric hybrid that combines a three-cylinder engine with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, giving it the power of a sports car but the emissions and consumption of a compact car. You might not believe us where we tell you that the battery can be recharged with a standard 120v AC outlet in only three hours—which is why you should try for yourself. You’ll never think of hybrids in the same way again.
5. Aston Martin Vantage Roadster
We could make a James Bond joke here, and who doesn’t secretly imagine themselves as Agent 007 while behind the wheel of an Aston Martin? But let’s focus for a moment on the brand’s other claims to fame, like the Vantage’s iconic, compact body that aficionados rave about with words like “sculpted” and “dead sexy.” As if head-turning design weren’t enough, the smallest Aston Martin vehicle on the market still manages to boast 420 horsepower and seven-speed transmission. A touch of vintage interior styling completes the sophisticated experience.
