Italian stallions ready for taming

You don’t have to be a diehard gearhead to recognize a bright red supercar with a yellow prancing horse badge. Ferrari has become the most famous brand in cars because it represents the pinnacle of automotive excellence. By embracing its motorsports heritage, exquisite Italian craftsmanship, and sincere passion, Ferrari has consistently made the most exciting and desirable cars money can buy. A Ferrari is an object to cherish, covet, and aspire to — a dream car that turns heads on the street and is far more than the sum of its parts behind the wheel.

There are currently five models available from Ferrari, who is celebrating their 70th anniversary of motorsports participation this year. From the California to the $1.4 million hybrid hypercar LaFerrari, every Ferrari carries the DNA of its storied Italian heritage. All new Ferraris have a sticker price north of $200,000, but for much less, you can rent one of Maranello’s exotic dream machines right here on Turo! Check out these drivable works of art from the most evocative name in auto and rent a Ferrari if you’re ready to ride.

Adam’s 2016 488 GTB

Lomita, CA

The new Ferrari 488 GTB is the ultimate super-sports car. Motor Trend’s 2017 “Best Driver’s Car” replaces the outgoing 458 as Ferrari’s most performance-focused supercar, incredibly agile and responsive to the slightest input.

Beverly Hills Luxury Car Rental’s 2016 488 GTB

Beverly Hills, CA

The 488 GTB uses a ferocious mid-mounted 3.9L V8 to propel itself from standstill to 60 in 3.0 seconds, so yeah, it’s a bit quick. A dual-clutch 7-speed transmission beautifully manages the 661 horsepower to make the 488 GTB Ferrari’s most capable super-sports car yet, which is saying something.

Bassem’s 2007 F430 Spider F1

San Francisco, CA

This brilliant F430 Spider has the optional F1 transmission, Grigio Silverstone paint, optional Daytona seats, and carbon fiber just about everywhere. It’s a Spider, so drop the top to fully experience the sublime 490-hp symphony of the 4.3L V8.

Cameron’s 1987 328 GTS

Redondo Beach, CA

This lovely 1987 328 GTS (Gran Turismo Spider) has a 3.2L V8, 270 Italian horses, and a removable targa top. The 328 is commonly considered one of the most reliable vintage Ferraris — rent this beauty and she won’t let you down.

Daren’s 1995 348 Spider

Los Angeles, CA

The Ferrari 348 succeeded the 328 GTS (above) and houses a naturally aspirated 300-hp 3.4L V8, the last engine commissioned by Enzo Ferrari before he died. This excellently-maintained 1995 348 Spider has a superb gated shifter, tan leather interior, classic Rosso Corsa paint, and super groovy side scoops.

Esther’s 2013 California

Los Angeles, CA

The California is the baby horse in the Ferrari stable, but don’t be fooled — under the hood lurks a 4.3L V8 that delivers 453 bhp through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. With a retractable hard top and a 2+2 seating configuration, the California is the ideal grand tourer for cruising in the Golden State.

Chayla’s 2013 California 30

Windermere, FL

The California 30 is so named because it sheds 30 kilograms of weight and adds 30 horsepower, offering a faster and more nimble package. This one dazzles in pearl white paint and is optioned out to the stars inside and out.

Malaka’s 2013 California

Gardena, CA

The California is the first Ferrari with a front-mounted V8 and the first with a folding metal roof. Malaka’s California has carbon racing seats and is finished in Ferrari’s famous Rosso Corsa paint.

Imtiaz’s 2013 California

Los Angeles, CA

Imtiaz’s California is the ideal pick for touring the streets of LA. A red convertible Ferrari invites celebrity like nothing else on the road, so give a wave to the paparazzi.

Nabil’s 2010 California

Fresno, CA

This California is finished in exotic Blu Abu Dhabi paint that transforms the car as the light changes. Exquisite diamond-stitched seats and yellow brake calipers make this one a real looker.
