Good luck to all our contestants, may the odds be forever in your favor.

Round one: Most imaginative description

These contestants are veritable lyrical gangsters, bringing art and poetry to car rentals across the United States. From comparing the ‘96 Accord to wild horses in New Mexico to rhapsodizing about a particularly saucy and temperamental middle-aged Fiat, these are some resident Hemingways of the Turo marketplace.

And the winner is…


“This 2012 911 Carrera 4GTS is something very, very special. It will make your days seem effortless, your worries seem pedestrian, and your kids seem more obedient. You might be at a restaurant and have a server spill hot soup on you. ‘No bother, Blake,’ you’ll say, ‘I just rented a 911 Carrera 4GTS.’”

And a tip of the hat to the runners up:


“Ah, the 1996 Honda Accord. What more is there really to say? You will have no problem blending in with this car, because they sold like a million of these things and they’re all still out there running like stallions through a New Mexican river.”

“Gioia is seductive and charming, but make no mistake about her, as a middle-aged Italian lady born in 1973, Gioia is temperamental and prefers to take her time. With a voluptuous 52 HP engine in her rear end, she will make her sweet voice heard not so subtlety from the back.”
