How to decide if a luxury or Exotic is for you

When your looking to rent a car for your next trip you need to decide between a luxury car rental and an exotic car rental. Although some exotic cars are luxurious and some exotic cars provide a level of luxury knowing the difference will help you choose the right car rental experience.


Luxury cars are powerful but in a subtle way. They won't glue you to your seat if you floor them. They are geared more toward a quiet and comfortable experience. Although some luxury cars have large V12 engines they can barely be heard. Step on the gas of a Rolls Royce Ghost or Bentley Mulsanne and the car will increase speed quickly but it feels more like if it was floating away. The engine mounts and other advanced technology keep the engine from moving around providing a smooth ride at any speed. These cars usually are limited to 150 mph beaucse most customers who rent luxury cars like these prefer to drive slow and enjoy the luxury experience.

Exotic cars on the other hand are meant for performance and usually have large V12 engines or finely tuned turbo charged V8 engine. Most modern super cars come with dual clutch automatic transmissions that provide instant smooth shifts creating the feel of one gear similar to electric cars. These cars are built for speed and are modeled after race cars. If you want to hear the roar of the engine and feel the thrill and excitement of your own personal roller coaster than this is the car for you.


If your looking for iconic styling that provide an unmistakable aura then a luxury car rental is most likely your cup of tea. Luxury cars are more elegant and are usually rented for weddings, corporate events, anniversary's and retirement parties. Both inside and out luxury cars are geared more towards the tiny details. The exotic woods inside the interior and the feel of the buttons are geared toward the refined gentleman that wants to travel in the lap of luxury. The Rolls Royce grill is an example of timeless design that is noticeable as soon as it arrives on the scene. Another unique feature of Rolls Royce is the rear hinged coach that open opposite to traditional doors creating a special entrance for passengers.

Want to drive a car with extreme styling that looks like a combination between an race car and an alien ship? Then an exotic car is probably more your style. Exotic cars are meant to shock and awe. The most extreme looking car manufacture is by far Lamborghini. The Lamborghini Aventador is coveted for it's iconic Lamborghini doors. The doors open upward providing a cool feature that people love. If you prefer attention and extreme styling the exotic cars are probably more your style. Both inside and out exotic cars provide extreme styling cues that are taken from F1 race cars.
