Lotus Evora 2013
Dealing with Mr. Bovenizer was seamless and professional at all points during the rental. The car is absolutely fabulous and in immaculate shape. Having driven a number of high-end sports cars, I'd put that Lotus up against any of them. I can't recommend this adventure enough; it was truly a delight!

The Car: Small? Yes. Storage space? Barely. A/C? Kind of. Power steering? Naw. This machine is built for one thing only, driving. Using it merely as a vehicle to get from one place to another would be like using the space shuttle to get from Cape Canaveral to LA. This animal of a car exists solely as an impressively thin, but powerful, layer between the driver and the road. A V4 tuned to about 190hp lives directly behind the two seats, and boy does it want you to know its there. Within a sweet spot around 6500rpm, the second cam kicks in and an approving scream from the engine teases you to prepare to shift and kick it up a notch (literally). I can not overstate how enjoyable this thing is to drive. It is built to seat two, but I pity whomever must ride shotgun to what must be one of the most exciting driving experiences of our time. For what it’s worth, the sound system in the car does have bluetooth and USB compatibility and doesn’t sound half bad if you’re willing to be “that person blasting music in the topless Lotus on Maui.” The Dude: David could not be further in character from a faceless car rental corporation. He is jovial, encouraging, and most importantly really just wants you to enjoy your time on the island with his cars. He’s been on the island for years, and is a true gear head (he will know more than you, be prepared for it) but is a truly genuine person who is striving to bring the joy of a rare driving experience to people’s time here. Dave was nice enough to pick me up at the airport, and drive me to his warehouse were the cars are kept for the complete rundown of the car and its quirks. It’s easy to lose track of time since he’s so friendly! When I found out that one of my housing arrangements was on a Lotus-incompatible road, within minutes Dave had set me up with a loaner with higher clearance, and was quick to help when I wanted to get back to driving the Lotus. He also has great recommendations of restaurants and local spots to check out. Even if he didn’t have this car, he’s a great friend to have. The Island: Maui is not large, and by some grace of god, most of the roads are actually in great shape. In turn, they provide some of the most interesting driving opportunities I’ve come across. I put just under 500 miles on the car in the 4 days that I had it, and there was never a dull moment. The one main highlight which you cannot skip is the Haleakala Crater Run. It’s the one road that leads all the way up the mountain to the highest point on Maui (famous for its sunrise/sunset views). It has tons of hairpins, and a perfectly cool breeze to balance out the Hawaiian sun. Put the top down if the weather permits! I did this up and down 4 times during my trip and each run was different and fun. Note: one adventure you do NOT want to take this car on is the Road to Hana. No matter how great of a driver you are, this trip will destroy the car. Repeat after me, it will destroy the car. Dave rents other cars that are much more compatible with this trip. When all’s said and done, if you like driving, rent this car. If you’re not comfortable with a stick shift, rent one of Dave’s Minis instead! You will not regret it.

David is so unbelievably cool and is a true car enthusiast. He took care of us very well, was very flexible and really loves his craft. Definitely rent from this guy if you want a time fit for a car enthusiast in Maui, and if you want an unforgettable driving experience, give the Lotus a try. It’s a friggin Lotus!

Renting David's Lotus is a must! Quite an incredible experience, and David was great to deal with. Definitely worth it and would rent this car again!

Fantastic Turo host. My biggest tip for renters is to LISTEN to his explanation of the ins and outs of each car and the roads you intend on visiting. Some of them require special procedures, have unique quirks, and some roads need extra caution. I can go on, but if you appreciate driving and a fun car, look no further.

David is not just regular car renter, he is true petrolhead, thats why this is very special. We had really amazing experience driving this car ☺. Communication with David was great. He gave us tips how and where to drive on Maui. He has more "fun to drive" cars available 😉.

David made the whole rental experience easy and memorable. Gave great instruction and advice on how/where to drive on Maui. The car was minty clean and so much fun. He had great communication and was flexible with pick-up drop off time. We rented a convertible and was even willing to swap it out for a different car if the weather proved to be unfavourable. Just a hands down, first-class experience. Will highly recommend to others and certainly will book with him again next time on Maui!

***THIS REVIEW IS FOR DAVE'S PORSCHE CAYMAN*** Unfortunately the driver of the Lotus prior to us caused some significant mechanical damage and we were offered Dave's gorgeous Porsche Cayman as an alternative. The car was a dream to drive, fast, powerful and clung to the road. You couldn't beat it for cool factor either. The vehicle was in pristine condition as were all of Dave's cars. But Dave's level of service was truly the best part of the transaction. His passion for driving was clear throughout the transaction. He provided us with a map and indicated the best places to drive the vehicle. He also gave us advice on driving in Maui in general. He was quick to respond to questions and changes and picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. If we are fortunate enough to go to Maui again we will definitely work with him again

This was my second time renting from David. Hopefully there is a third in the future. He was awesome. The car was awesome. And the overall experience was great. I got a chance to check out a few of his other cars and they were great! I highly recommend David and any of his vehicles. You will not be disappointed!
