Description

Rent an exotic Aston Martin V8 Vantage Convertible from $199/day (M-Th) right here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Free SFO Airport Delivery via Turo's Valet Service with 2 day rental! Channel your inner Bond in a stunning Rossa Corsa Ferrari Red Aston Martin Convertible. No Porsche, Jaguar or BMW can claim the exclusivity of this hand-built performance sports car. 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 $120k 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 cost over $160k 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: http://www.edmunds.com/car-reviews/top-10/top-10-exotic-cars-you-can-rent.html "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 The exclusivity of an Aston Martin makes it an experience of its own. No Porsche, Jaguar or BMW can give you this feeling. ► 4.3L V8 Aston Martin Vantage Convertible Roadster ► One of the most exotic cars on Turo ► One of the best sounding cars on the market ► 2-passenger convertible. Trunk can take 2 carry-on luggages. (Travel light) ► 6-speed SportShift “Paddle shift” automated manual transmission. Shift with paddle shifters, but can be driven in automatic mode. ► Piano Black Veneer w/ black full leather interior and black top. ► HID headlights, 19" rims ► Aston Martin 700 watt Premium Audio System w/Subwoofer ► Heated Front Seats, Power-fold Mirror system ► Cruise Control, Navigation ► Bluetooth for Phone, Audio AUX Cable via FM Stereo ► Excellent condition, seats like new. Perfect for weddings, Napa wineries, or make a Silicon Valley impression Fuel: 91 Octane or higher Premium fuel only. You will need to show receipt at the end of the trip via Turo app’s trip photos. Some rules: Absolutely no pets, no smoking, no launching, no redlining, no race track. There are other more suitable cars for this. You will be banned from Turo if you take it to the track and we will know from the recorded telemetry data. Although this is an automatic, this car has a clutch, so please be sure to do the clutch relearn procedure (turn engine on, wait 30 seconds). Also, we will be selective where this car is being driven (banned from SF steep uphill driving stops) - one renter burned the clutch driving the steep SF hills - Fillbert St, Lombard St, California st. etc..) Do not reverse up a slope and please keep reversing to a minimum, use the paddle shifters to change gears. We will walk you through how to drive this exotic car so as not to damage the clutch ($6800 cost to repair). If you are planning to drive this car in SF, do NOT attempt it. IF you must, plan out your route in advance and stay off the steep uphill inclines (I have a map that shows this as well). There is a reason why Aston Martin's are not sold in San Francisco. This may have an automatic mode, but it has a clutch, and the clutch can overheat in heavy stop and go traffic, as well as stopping at a steep hill and slowly creeping forward. If you happen to curb one of the wheels there is a $200/wheel repair fee. Please report any damages immediately, if I have to report the damage, there may be a $100 admin fee to handle the claim.

Well maintained for a 12 years old car, awesome exhaust sound and overall cool experience. Booked in an hour notice after another Turo car was cancelled in the last minute, Jeff was flexible and accommodating.

Fun car. Great renter. I would rent from Jeff again.

Steven H.-Aug 26, 2019
