They say a picture speaks a thousand words so just take in for a moment the beauty of the Jaguar F-Type that could be yours for a weekend road trip or a further flung adventure. This car is brand new as of July 2015 and is one of the very first manual transmission F-Types to grace the west coast. With 385 supercharged horsepowers and a fully loaded equipment roster this is the perfect car for those wanting to drive something special.
3.0 V6 engine with supercharger
Six speed manual transmission
Power convertible top
770w Meridian sound system
Parking sensors and backup camera
USB and Aux inputs for a variety of devices
Heated, red leather power seats
Power locks and windows
ABS & Traction control
Dynamic mode with active exhaust system
Blind spot detection
This car is a manual transmission and as such I will require recent experience of driving similar vehicles in order to approve the rental. Trunk space is a bit limited anything larger than a carry on size suitcase may not fit. The car takes 91 octane minimum gas and I would ask you provide a receipt to show the correct gas was added. No pets, no smoking and please do not wash the car in automated car washes.
Why rent from me?
I have a flawless review rating on Turo and will go the extra mile to make sure your rental is a pleasant one. Please feel free to ask any questions and check out my other listings.
Please note that the two recent short notice cancellations were due to the battery failing in the car requiring replacement and I was unable to source the correct battery over the weekend. The car is fully repaired and ready to rent. I have never cancelled a rental for anything other than an unforeseen mechanical issue in over 300 rentals to date and can promise you the same guarantee.
"Whoa dude, cool car!", "What do you do for a living?", "Can I drive?", "I'd rather drive yours" are just a few of the things I heard in the 12 hours I used this car. It will turn heads for sure. Thanks Tony.
Let me start by saying this is the car you are looking for. I'm a car enthusiast like many on here that are seeking a home away from home to when it comes to your vehicular choice. The Jaguar F-Type that Tony provides is just that. I was greeted by a text from Tony on instructions for pickup in where he unlocks the car and you begin your experience. The car itself is in superb condition as expected from a new car. The white and red color combo is perfect, the same color combo in my personal car, a real eye catcher. I counted 27 compliments in my short 48-hour trip haha. I took the car all over downtown San Fran and the mountains. The car is perfect for a daily driver, every electronic you could want and maybe done but have the option of. Hill assist, PDC, Navi, Bluetooth, built-in charger, auto start/stop. The convertible top was lightning fast up and down time. The driver experience is no less, from the cars smooth and linear steering to the grunty exhaust note. That exhaust has to be the best I have heard on any V6 ever. Have the car in Dynamic mode the entire time, it will enhance your experience. The car will take whatever you throw at it just don't get too crazy haha. Excellent gas mileage without even trying. Mechanically in good condition and upkeep maintenance. Looking into how I can get one of these added to my collection currently. My only complaint with the car is the clutch setup. The car has an aggressive CDV (Clutch Delay Valve) that will stop you from any type of quick upshift. You must baby it into gear and it will obey. No big deal as long as you aren't trying to race the car. As well the car has a vague bite point but you get used to that. I highly recommend Tony's rental to anyone reading from one enthusiast to another. Cheers!
Fantastic experience! This was my first trip with Tony & also Turo and this could not have been an easier and more pleasant way to rent a car. Tony was flexible enough to allow a pick-up/delivery to the airport I was flying into with no issues at all. Then there's the car. Top down almost the entire time and I received tons of compliments from co-workers. If you're in the SF area, you can't find a better car host than Tony!
Many thanks to Tony for the outstanding communication, timely pickup/drop off details and flexibility. The F-Type is indeed the remarkable vehicle car journalists claim it to be. You get beauty, savage power and a surprisingly comfortable ride. The effect is such that 90% of the heads in your periphery will turn as you roar along. As a disclaimer–you may l feel like James Bond if you drive this car.
Never in my life would I ever be able to own a Jaguar, but Tony made it all possible! Sports car + manual transmission is the way to go. At pickup, the car was ready to go. It was clean & he even showed me all the controls. Even when I was late at pickup & dropped off the car at an inconvenient hour, he was very gracious & provided options for me. To top it off, he's a super nice guy!
Tony was great to deal with. Flexible with pick up and drop off. Car was fantastic, really easy to drive considering the amount of performance. Tons of compliments on our trip down the coast. Would highly recommend.
Every now and then you have an experience that you will always remember. Spending the day in this car will I assure you give you one of those days. Everything was so perfect... Tony is a great guy and I instantly wanted to be his friend. The car I could write pages on, it's incredible. The exhaust sound is like no other and down shifting will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up every time. It has so much power, is immaculately clean, the seats hug every inch of you... it was just an amazing experience. Thank you Tony for sharing this car with me!! If you are considering renting this car, stop considering and rent it now before someone else does!
Great car, spotless condition and a lot of fun to drive on mountain roads! If anything I would have loved to have a bit more than 150 miles / day - this beauty is made to be driven and you can't go very far with such a limited mileage.
Perfect ride. Amazing speed and handling. Nothing like driving a powerful car, with manual transmission, roof down on some sunny windy roads. Tony was really accommodating with pick up and drop off. Highly recommended, I will most definitely be renting again.
I was hesitant to use Turo for my first time, but what an ambassador Tony was!
Responsive, pleasant, and professional are all things I expect while renting a car like this, but Tony went above and beyond that to be friendly, over-the-top accommodating, and unbelievably easy-going. I really can't thank him enough for that.
The car was great. It is well taken care of and clean. Not sexy as part of a sports car review, I know, but essential when stepping into a stranger's car. I wouldn't have been as pleased to drive around a dirty F-Type.
For those looking to rent a great balance between very manageable power, style, and handling, this could be it. It does everything you ask it to in corners, has great throttle response, and has an actual manual gearbox! Remember those? Lots of fun on windy roads along the coast.
Thanks again, Tony. You and your car were a class act and a great introduction to San Francisco. I will 100% be renting from you again.
The car was awesome. Tony was super helpful and friendly in helping us get set up and our trip came off without a hitch. This was my first experience on Turo and I can't see how it could have gone better.
I have to say that most cars including my Aston Martin don't excite me anymore but, this car especially in a new town and convertible was a great experience for me. Tony was more hospitable and friendly than I have ever experienced. The car was amazing, fun, clean and Tony always answering his phone and being a great host with a sleak car made my two week experience the best. A great time (even on the rainy days) coupled with a hassle free experience. My kind of deal.

What a fantastic experience! Tony was amazingly friendly and the owner of a very special car, the Jaguar F-type. Would highly recommend giving Tony's Jag a spin, every time you stomp on it it puts a huge smile on your face. Tony was on time at delivery and flexible regarding the drop off. You have to try this car!
What an amazing car! We had an absolute blast driving up the coast in Tony's Jag. The car was clean and ran great. Tony was a pleasure to work with - he was very friendly and accomodating. We can't wait to rent this car again!!
I rented the jaguar f type for 7 days and it was perfect! Brand new, immaculate, and powerful. Awesome car. And its renter Tony is nothing short of excellent--he's super courteous and flexible. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to rent from him again. 5 stars!
We had a great time and loved driving the Jag. It is in excellent shape and handles the roads of San Fran fantastic. Tony was great to work with and helped us along the way with any questions we had. I will definitely rent from him again the next time we visit.
Tony was extremely helpful and accommodating in meeting up, gave me a good tour of the car, and made sure I'd enjoy the experience. The car itself is spectacular - perfect condition, beautiful to look at, great to drive, and makes a fantastic sound. Recommended!
This is the perfect car to experience San Francisco in!
The Jaguar is a ton of fun on narrow roads in the city, even more fun out by the coast and comfortable on the freeway. Fuel consumption is resonable, sound system is great and the over all condition of the car is like new.
Renting from Tony is easy, communication is good, replies are fast.
I would have no doubt about renting from Tony again or reffering others to rent from Tony.
Tony is easy and fun to work with. He went out of his way to accommodate me. Tony's F-Type is an amazing car in perfect condition. I had no trouble maneuvering my 6.3" body in and out of the driver seat, it actually felt quite spacious. Thanks Tony!
What a great car! So much fun to drive through Napa with the top down. Driving for me is part of the trip and the experience. If you're looking for a top notch experience, DRIVE THIS CAR. Tony was excellent to work with and allowed us to meet him right at the airport to drop off the car. Can't wait to get back out to Napa and rent this car again! Thank you Tony!
Beautiful ride specially for who enjoys the sporty stick shift experience. Car is definitely fast but low gas/mileage, has all latest comfort features, gets plenty of attention from people. Tony was very open to adjust for my late pick up and very easy going. Will certainly rent it again. Rhx
Amazing car with all the options you would ever want... sounds absolutely incredible. It's brand new and turns lots of heads.
Tony is also the nicest person really willing to make sure you understand and enjoy the car. He really helped us out. Thank you again!
This was the first time using Turo. My experience was very position. Frankly, I was very impressive. The process is very user friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Turo as an alternate to the corporate rental car companies.
Toni was extremely communicative and professional.
