Description

2018 Vanderhall Venice This is a FUN car with a capital F! You won’t be able to drive this without smiling yourself and making others smile. This car simply makes people happy and you notice that shortly after your drive begins as you find yourself giving lots of head nods and reciprocal thumbs ups. You will also likely get a lot of questions, stares and pictures taken. The main questions are usually about the engine and the riding experience. The engine is a GM 16 V turbo engine 1.4 liter, 180 horse power, 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, front wheel drive. Weighing in at 1,375 pounds this car is very light, so it flies. It is an automatic transmission, however it does have a bump shift which will give you a similar manual experience minus the clutch. This particular Venice Vanderhall has been meticulously designed reminiscent of a British Morgan or an Austin Healey, but with modern conveniences. It is custom painted British Racing Green, paired with burnt brown leather, accented with all the chrome accent upgrades available on a Vanderhall Venice adding to the classic look. This, including a bespoke chrome luggage rack complete with leather straps to strap up that picnic lunch or overnight duffle. This thing is unexpectedly fast, has a surprisingly loud turbo, providing an unforgettable driving experience. Although it’s loads of fun, it should be handled with caution as you are extremely small in this car and low to the ground. Its also not a race car, so please don’t rent this if that’s what you have in mind. However, if you are in the market for a fun beach cruising, bouncing around town experience - then this is for you. Also as a big bonus - it has a free Laguna Beach Parking Meter sticker, so you will never pay for parking when visiting Laguna Beach which can be a good savings if that’s on your agenda. *You must purchase the cleaning fee to be eligible to book, I have tried to let people choose but they never wash it on their own as it needs a hand wash and is not an easy wash. *This car takes PREMIUM gas, tank must be filled and left with a full tank of premium. You must leave a receipt in the glove box showing Premium was used, otherwise you will be charged the $25 fee regardless. *In California helmets are not actually required, but recommended and available complimentary at your request. However because it is not a common car many cops don’t know that helmets are not required. It falls under an exempt helmet motorcycle classification because it has roll bars, a steering wheel, and seat belts- all of which motorcycles do not. You can explain this to cops should you get pulled over and they should just give you a warning, but if that possibility makes you nervous then helmets are available at your request. I have been pulled over only once (I believe mostly out of curiosity and let go) but have passed by many cops who haven’t looked twice - so it’s just a luck of the draw of which cops have this helmet classification knowledge and which don’t.

Parking details

You will be picking up the car from a parking lot with self check in. You can leave your car in the lot, however I will need to arrange to get a pass from the guard gate for your stay in the space.

Guidelines

Please treat my car as if it were your own- that is the main thing that I ask! MUST BE READ BY DRIVER Important Tips: Gear Shift: Push DOWN on the gear shift to shift to change gears. The gear shift is not labeled but is in a standard Automatic Drive order. Starting from the most forward position: PARK - REVERSE - NEUTRAL - DRIVE - MANUAL. The last position is to put it into Manual and use the bump shift on the drivers left arm side. This works just like a manual without the clutch. Bluetooth: Leave the first switch on the dashboard in the up position to have Bluetooth activated. To connect you are looking for WW-BT-VC. Sometimes upon re-entry of the car it may take a minute to reconnect and sometimes has to be manually reconnected. To skip a track, do a quick turn to the right on the middle Bluetooth knob, to turn volume up or down hold to the right for louder or hold to the left for quieter, but if you let go too quick it will skip rather than change the volume so hold it until you hear the volume change and then you can release the hold. Seat Warmers: When activated, they go to the hottest setting right away. So push a few more times to go to the lowest setting and then work your way up to desired heat as they can get quite hot. Lights and Seat Warmers: These will automatically turn off a few seconds after key is removed although they will appear to stay on when you get out, they will momentarily turn off. Important SAFETY things to remember: *You are SMALL in this car, so always practice defensive driving. Drive with the idea that no one can see you and always be aware of drivers around you - never sit in someone’s blind spot and just stay away from semis. The good thing is, because this car is so unique you will actually see that the road tends to part and people usually get out of your way which helps. But as a rule of thumb, drive as if no one sees you. *The turning radius is about as good as a semi truck due to the placement of the wheels, so try to avoid any U-turns unless you have a very wide space. *When pulling into a parking spot, do NOT pull all the way in like you would in a car where your tires would touch the curb first and you would know to stop. On this car the front carriage would hit it first bc it is so low and the wheels are set back, so pull into all spots with caution and stop prior to hitting the stop curb. The car is shorter than you are used to, so you won’t need to pull in as far as normal. *Because this car is low, you need to take all speed bumps and inclined driveways or entrances at an angle to avoid damage to the under carriage. *The ABS brakes are fantastic but may seem a bit touche until you get used to them. They are most touche when slowing at lower speeds such as when driving through a parking lot, but when slowing down at regular speeds you will find a normal braking experience. *In California helmets are not actually required, but recommended. However because it is not a common car many cops don’t know that helmets are not required. It falls under an exempt helmet motorcycle classification because it has roll bars, a steering wheel, and seat belts- all of which motorcycles do not. You can explain this to cops and they should just give you a warning, but if that possibility makes you nervous then helmets are available at your request.

....... oh my god!! This was the greatest experience I’ve ever head in my life! We went to Beverly Hills and at the Beverly Hills Hotel the valet parked us in front of Rolls Royce and Ferraris. Anywhere you go with the Vanderhall, you feel like a celebrity. Thank you so much Elizabeth for this experience. We’ll definitely be back for more!
