Description

Turo’s June Car of the Month! 2009 Lotus Elise Purist Edition in beautiful Monaco White. Just over 12K miles and garage-kept, so it is in immaculate condition. Rims have been upgraded to the Exige S and make for a sportier ride. Vehicle comes with a removable hard top, so please let me know if you want it on or off! Very enjoyable roadster during the warm LA summers. Things to note: Absolutely no smoking or pets. $150 fee will be requested. As mentioned, the vehicle is in brand-new condition and my guests prefer it that way. 91 fuel only! Please keep receipts inside the car. Please do not wash! This car is unique and not made to be washed. I will take care of the hand wash and will not charge if it’s in decent shape. $25 fee if it’s more than regular-use dirty. Car does not have cup holders so please no food or drink. Bottled water is ok. Not much storage room! Please keep that in mind when booking as a traveler. I highly recommend garage parking to avoid any incidences. It’s a special car and thus attracts a lot of attention. If you have to park outdoors, please use the cover overnight that will be provided. Manual transmission that is very sporty. Please do not book if you are not extremely comfortable driving stick. Apologies for the nuances but this is a very unique vehicle. Other than that, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the drive!

The Experience: Matthew is very well prepared and includes a detailed run-down before you even get the car. He makes it very clear what you should expect beforehand and how to best enjoy the car. Pickup and delivery went extremely smoothly. The Car: Everything I had hoped for and more! Turns every grocery, food, or errand into an adventure. In the curves it is every bit as impressive as it looks. I don't think the smile ever left my face during the whole trip.

The Elise offers unbelievable driving experience and Matt was the perfect host! He took time to explain the Elise and was very accommodating. The car was flawlessly maintained and drove beautifully. His passion for cars and the Lotus brand made the trip even better. If you want an unforgettable drive you've got to check out Matt's Elise!

I love cars, and I love driving and this was the best experience that I have ever had behind the wheel. The steering, the brakes, the balance, the grip, the throttle response. All are outstanding. This is the perfect sports car, and Matthew has taken very good care of it. Rent it now and then go find yourself an open road in the mountains. You will not be disappointed!
