At Taylored Limousine & Exotic Car Rental we love cars too. We have a lot of experience with most of the exotic and luxury cars on the road and would like to give back by sharing what we have learned over the years. If you have a question, please do not hesitate to send it along through the contact us section and we would be glad to provide an answer to the best of our ability.
Q: “I am looking to buy a Lamborghini Gallardo but have heard that the clutches tend to be unreliable. As a rental company you must have gone through a few, how long can I expect to get out of a clutch?” <<From Adam in Miami>>
A: We have noticed that Lamborghini has greatly improved their design over the years. Pre-2008 are indeed delicate and often consumed, however since 2008 they have become significantly more reliable. We have been able to get about 10,000 miles out of the pre-2008 and 25,000 from the post-2008 Gallardos.
Q: “In your opinion, what is the best luxury car rental you offer?” <<From Alex in Fort Lauderdale>>
A: You may be able to tell from the reviews, but I am biased towards the Ferrari 458 Italia. Nothing else is as easy to drive around town and has the kind of power that makes freeways disappear in the rear view.
Q: “Why don’t you rent any electric vehicles like the Tesla or Fisker?” <<Bradley in Miami Beach>>
A: We would love to provide the Tesla and Fisker cars but clients are rarely able to provide the charging stations neccessary to take advantage of the electric engines. These cars are not very special when their electric capabilities are removed and therefor we feel it would be wasteful.
Q: “Why is it so expensive to rent these exotic and luxury cars?” <<Richard in Toronto, Canada>>
A: This is actually a humble business. Believe it or not but margins are tight. All super cars loose considerable value with each mile put on them. Absorbing the costs of wear and tear as well as mileage is substantial every few rentals. We also require considerable insurance to cover anything unforeseen when handing over the keys of an Italian or German Rocket. We manage to have the best prices because we own all of our cars, unlike most other companies that are really just brokers.
Q: “What is the car the you rent the most in Miami?” <<Francois in New York City, New York>>:”
A: Without question, most of the calls we get are for the Lamborghini Gallardo since 2004. The Ferrari Italia has been renting well since its inception to our rental fleet, however it is costly compared to the Lamborghini.
