Aston Martin Rapide hire car

Elite Rent has added the Aston Martin Rapide, Porsche 911 Carrera and Ferrari 458 Italia to its fleet.  The luxury car rental and chauffeur company now includes sites at Barcelona, Frankfurt and Salzburg.

Elite Rent says that it sources only the latest models of the finest car brands in the world for its fleet each year with many joining Elite before they are commercially available, ensuring clients can literally test drive their favourite models without having to pay the (sometimes) six-figure price tags.

The four-door Aston Martin Rapide is built at a dedicated plant at the Magna Steyr facility in Graz (Austria).  Production started last year.  In the USA it is priced at US$200,000.  The latest Porsche 911 Carrera, an all-wheel drive two-seater which boasts the driving dynamics and performance figures whilst offering superlative comfort.  The Ferrari 458 Italia two-seater won the heart of Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear, naming it "the best car in the world, ever." 

Elite's fleet is claimed to be the largest Pan-European of its kind, with almost 400 exclusive car models, from prestigious car manufacturers such as Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, and even the Mini. www.eliterent.com
