Exotic Rentals?

Anyone know if there's a business in Victoria that rents out exotics.

I strangely remember a company back in the day around Arbutus that had a Ferrari for rent.

If anyone has a link that would be much appreciated.

Wow that would be a great weekend trip.

On a side note did you notice the pricing. I know they show price per mile but wasn't sure if there was an hourly rental charge?

I don't think there are exotic rentals in Victoria, but there are some in Vancouver.

I just did an exotic car rental in Vegas. It was pretty fun. Limited miles and fairly high cost kind of suck though. They had some ferraris and Lambos, but they were out of my range. I wanted a Viper but they were rented and settled on this:

Rental on the Lotus was ostensibly $279 but after the insurance, taxes, etc. It ws like $422. I went slightly over the 100 miles they give you and had to pay an extra $15. They didn't seem to cresit me for bringing it back with 7/8ths of a tank when I got it with a half. I mean that is minor, but still hosing me for the miles was kinda cheesy.

Here are the rates & cars avail:

We used the car to go to Hoover Dam, which was an OK drive as you go past Lake Mead which is kinda cool. The best part though is going to Red Rock Canyon (which I swear was a track option in 'Cruisin' USA') One way road super windy and awesome scenery. 35 MPH speed limit and back packers and such kinda of suck the fun, but were hardly any people when I was there, and some of the corners are so tight that you can have fun even @ 35 mph. I didn't wind the car out in the straights, as I had no desire to go to US jail or kill a hiker, and there isn't much skill involved in flooring a car though straights anyhow.

When I see a plate "811 WHP" on a super car, I expect 811 Wheel HP.
