Description

*** LOW DISCOUNTED RENTAL RATE FOR LIMITED TIME *** This limited-run MINI Cooper S Convertible Highgate Turbo is a sophisticated version of the drop-top that is named for an ultra-exclusive residential London suburb. The special edition body color ’Iced Chocolate Metallic’ has a unique pigmentation that reveals a subtle, bluish luster under the sun’s rays, which works perfectly with the tailored ‘Silver-touched Truffle’ fabric roof. Inside, the distinctive look is enhanced with ‘Dark Truffle’ Lounge Leather seats featuring blue piping and contrasting stitching, while sitting on 17-inch ‘Double Cross Turned’ light-alloy wheels in a subtle aluminium color. Fun, nimble, and engaging, the Cooper S Highgate is one of the sportiest front wheel-drive cars on the market. It combines open-top driving fun with sophisticated individuality and an essential dose of British-cool! This 4 seat MINI is filled with extras like automatic air conditioning, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, multi-function steering wheel, multi-colored interior lights, aftermarket tinted windows, power windows, locks and mirrors; a premium AM/FM/CD audio system with AUX input; ambient lighting; and keyfob ignition. Under the bonnet is a powerful 184 hp turbocharged, yet very fuel efficient 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. This beautiful cabriolet gets looks everywhere it goes and would be great for an ocean side cruise, a day at the beach, a late night downtown event, or just a fun drive around town. Enjoy the sun and the moon and let the wind blow away your stress as you sail down the road to destinations unknown. It's an older vehicle, so it's not perfect as it has the expected wear and tear, but it runs excellent and looks good! All of my vehicles are extremely well maintained and serviced as required.

Chad was amazing. Very professional and laid back. The vehicle was as advertised and a fun to drive. I think I'll buy one based on my experience. Feel comfortable renting from Chad! Drive on!

Mr D.-11 août 2019

Car was just what we were looking for and Chad was easy to work with and very prompt in replying to any questions we had.

Karen H.-27 juin 2019

Excellent car for a beach trip in Florida! Loved every second of driving!

Max V.-4 juin 2019

This is our first time using Turo and the experience exceeded our expectations. It was a quick and easy process and was much more pleasant and economical than a traditional car rental service. Chad was our host in the St. Petersburg area and I would highly recommend him. Using the Turo app we found Chad as well as other hosts but chose him based on reviews from other customers. The reviews, we discovered are spot on. Chad delivers a 5 star service and made renting one of his vehicles a pleasure. The car was delivered ahead of the agreed time, was clean and ready to go. We used it for sightseeing and when we decided to keep it additional days it was no problem to extend our time. Chad is quick to respond to any questions and we had zero issues from start to finish of this process. I highly recommend Chad and Turo.

Mini Cooper's are FUN little cars! Chad's chocolate colored Cooper S convertible was great to drive. Click the Sport mode and you'll feel and hear the difference when driving. This car is another winner in Chad's stable of cars. It handled perfect, lots of passing power, and great fuel economy. Like always the car was received on time, clean, full of fuel, and ready to go. Chad is always available to answer questions and demo how things work, such as lowering the top. Chad sends very detailed instructions explaining the entire process, so both veteran's and newbies to Turo won't be left guessing about how the process works. Chad takes great care of his cars mechanically and cosmetically, and I will continue to rent cars from Chad and Turo. Thanks for being available on short notice and helping make my trip great!
