Note: the high pitch squealing brakes as commented by a renter review was due to a car wash in which the person sprayed cleaner on the disc brakes, which has now been resolved (5/31)

Aston Martin cars have been featured in James Bond movies and have maintained the image of a high-class performance vehicles. Aston Martin prices start at $118,650 and can go well over $200,000, while the top end Aston Martin's average $2 million.

Aston Martin's philosophy is more about quality and less about quantity. In its 96 years of existence, it has built only a few more than 30,000 hand-crafted vehicles. Aston Martin has always stood for fine, civilized high-performance sports cars, designed and produced by skilled craftsmen. Today, all of their luxury sports cars continue to be hand-built using state-of-the-art technology processes in a very modern environment.

“There’s nothing quite like an Aston Martin. Other super cars may have the flash and growl to turn heads wherever they go, but Astons have a debonair elegance that command the respect of those around them. The inimitably suave James Bond drove an Aston — from the Sean Connery days to his more recent Daniel Craig incarnation — because nothing says classy cool like a DB5 or a V8 Vantage.” - Turo’s Megan Natt

This exotic beauty had a sticker price of over $144k and is dressed in a stunning custom Rossa Corsa Ferrari Red exterior paint. This car is a true head turner! They’ll either hear the roaring V8 or stare at its unspeakable beauty, with perfectly drawn lines and luscious curves. Almost 400hp with a Sportshift, you'll love driving it. Sportshift adds electro-hydraulic control to the existing Vantage 6-speed manual gearbox to offer improved shift times and replaces the conventional manual gear lever with push button controls on the center console. Manual gear changes are selected in Paddle Shift Mode – the ultra-quick system provides the driver with heightened precision via fingertip control of gear changes using paddles, forged from lightweight magnesium, located directly behind the steering wheel to progress smoothly and swiftly through the ratios. This car costs $750+/day to rent from other luxury car rentals:

"On mountain roads, the Aston was easy to drive rapidly and would have been a very enjoyable companion for a solo run on a sunny afternoon" "The Aston's angular body and classic GT-coupe proportions—long hood, short rear deck, fast windshield, aggressive stance—stand out in any crowd." - Car and Driver

"In fact, the Roadster has one clear advantage over the Coupe: its soundtrack. No need for a high-end hi-fi in the dash; the raspy WOOFLE! of the exhaust fills your ears with stereophonic sound when you’ve lowered the top." - Motor Trend

"And it still sounds great, right? Yes indeed. The bypass valve in the exhaust still opens at around 4000rpm, so it still has that head-turning, whip-crack soundtrack." - Car Magazine UK
