Going to the UK to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee or perhaps the London Olympics? Tired of the same old Skoda Octavia? Not to worry. Now you can rent—or “hire”, as they say in Jolly Olde—a McLaren MP4-12C super car.
The two-seat mid-engined McLaren, which retails for $352,000 in the UK, is now in the Hertz rental fleet and joins the Lamborghini LP560-4 Bicolore, Porsche Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet, Ferrari 458 Italia, Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes S Class Brabus which are only available to renters through the Hertz’s Premiere Velocity service. Other super cars available include the Rolls Royce Phantom, the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Aventador, and Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster.
Of course, a meet and greet service to deliver the car to a home, hotel, office or airport location is available.It should be for a car that starts at $1,815 for a single day mid-week, although that drops to $1,450 per day for rentals lasting over 28 days. Or $40,600 for the month of February.
Naturally, one must include the cost of airfare. The hottest thing in the U.S. Hertz rental fleet is the Chevrolet Corvette at a mere $160 per day, a bargain by any measure. Or on the other hand, you can buy a Corvette for a month and a half of renting the McLargen MP4-12C. Your choice. Go to Hertz Supercars to make your reservation.
