Seattle may not be the first city that comes to mind when you think about exotic car rentals. But if you want to enjoy a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Aston Martin, Seattle has a lot to offer. And, despite its reputation for rain, a convertible rental in Seattle, Bellevue or Tacoma can actually be a great experience!
When you think of Seattle, you probably think of Starbucks and rain. But, did you also know that it is home to many exotic car dealerships and rental agencies? In fact, one of the oldest Ferrari dealerships in the country is located nearby.
There’s a lot of money in the area. Remember that Microsoft and Nintendo are headquartered in nearby Redmond. And the whole Seattle-Tacoma area has some of the most picturesque driving rounds in the country.
Some of the more popular rental agencies like Zadart, have the latest models of Lamborghini and Ferrari available. And while those cars are certainly great, you may want to check into renting a convertible McLaren, or Aston Martin for a slightly less expensive thrill ride.
Before you pick up your rented exotic car, it’s a good idea to plan out where you’re going to go. Most supercar rentals have a specified mileage limit, and that can go by pretty fast. Mapping out your route beforehand can protect you from expensive over mileage fees.
Fortunately, the Seattle area has spectacular driving scenery. So, you have lots of places you can enjoy as you thrill to the roar of an Italian V8 behind your head.
