Amazing car, great host, best driving experience ever! Never expected could drive a Lotus on Turo before, thanks for making my dream come true! If you love driving, don’t miss the opportunity to drive a Lotus, it won’t make you regret it!
I’ve always wanted to drive a Lotus. My time with the Evora 400 was really something special. You don’t see many of these around. It was a real treat to spend time with such a elegant and rare machine. I lost track of how many times people said “hey man, awesome car!” And the feeling of driving her down a winding road is second to none. Holy smokes.
Matt’s Lotus is a gem of a car. Im looking at buying one and wanted to test drive it first. It runs great, was clean and Matt showed me all the quirks of driving it. That car is pure joy for sports car fans. Even if you don’t want to buy one it’s worth renting just to remember how fun a pure sports car can be. Thanks!
Was so fun, it's a gorgeous car and plenty of get up...note to start a Lotus you have to hold in the lock but while firing it on. Lol. Was a very chill and easy rental experience.
Matt is amazing and the Lotus is incredible. He's really friendly and knows everything about the car. This posting is a hidden gem on Turo and anyone not renting this is missing out
What a wonderful little thing! I had an absolute blast renting Matthew’s Elise for a weekend. If you’ve ever been curious about them, I can’t recommend this car enough. Obviously you should have a decent understanding of what you’re getting into. It should be obvious that this is a small car, just be ready for the compromises. You have space for a backpack, just getting into and out of a parking lot becomes an event, and you will probably be almost run over at least once. But find a great road and Matthew’s Elise is just magic. It’s also shockingly pleasant to live with, the clutch is perfectly weighted, the ride is much smoother than you’d expect, and once you’re in the car it’s quite comfortable (I’m 6ft). This should be on any gear heads “must drive” list, and Matthew’s is a great example.
What a car! Rented to see if I wanted to buy one and I’m sold. Matt was super helpful and happy to answer any questions I had. The car itself is incredible—I highly recommend renting it!
Officially in love with this car. I was so sad to give it back. Matthew was a great host. Very easy to text for pick up and drop off. He explained very quickly how to work the basics on the car and I was off into the sunset. Def my favorite car rental on Turo! Can't wait to book again
I rented Iliya’s Lotus Evora for few days and it was one of the best experiences on Turo. This car is not made for comfort (but it’s much better than Alfa 4C) and not even for straight speed. It’s made for waking up your neighbors and having a lot of fun on windy backroads in style. It handles amazingly and those revs on downshifts put a big smile on your face. Bright yellow Evora draws a lot of attention – with both its look and sound. Pick up and drop off was easy, the car was clean and in perfect condition.
I've spent a lot of time looking at pictures and videos of this car before picking it up from Matt. None of that did any justice to how crazy driving the Lotus actually is. Hats off to Matt for letting us rent it. This is what Turo is all about!
Tri’s Evora is a truly special car and an experience you don’t want to miss out on. I drove a 2nd-generation Lotus Elise before trying this car, so it is fair to say that I had high expectations. The Evora chassis is every bit as impressive as the Elise, but the ride quality and comfort are significantly better. I’m not sure how they achieved this, but it is incredible. The Evora’s V6 provides torque and linear power throughout the rev range, whereas in the Elise you had to keep it above 6000 RPM to really go quickly. This makes the Evora a much better road car. The interior is comfortable and plush; there is alcantara everywhere and the steering wheel looks strange but the ergonomics are spot on no matter how you hold it. The flappy-paddle gearbox shifts feel relatively clunky compared to a modern DCT, but once you get used to the delay it isn’t bad. Tri was an absolutely amazing host and could not have been more accommodating. I had to make changes to both my dropoff and pickup times, and he made my rental experience completely stress-free. He was easy to reach and very professional, and I really liked chatting about the car with him. I highly recommend renting from Tri!
Aimann’s Lotus was simply AMAZING. Anyone who doesn’t give these car’s their due credit up against a Porsche only proves that they’ve never been behind the wheel of one. Incredible from top to bottom: acceleration, exhaust note, connection to the road, and above all, the way this car handles any turn or curve at a high rate of speed. On top of the impressive list of performance factors, I guarantee you will have heads turning, people staring, and you’ll be stopped so those that see it can ask what kind of car it is. Got so many compliments during the week I had it, that I’m already researching getting one!! I would recommend this car to anyone, and dealing with Aimann was truly a pleasure!! Easy to communicate with, would help out with anything I needed before, during, and after the trip, and just overall a super cool and genuinely nice dude. Will totally rent this again when I’m back in the Dallas area!!! Thank you Aimann!!!
This car is unreal. I have driven plenty of exotics (Lambo, Ferrari etc..) and the Lotus is one of the best drivers cars. Sounds great. Looks amazing. Glenn couldn't have been a better host too. Absolutely renting this car from him again.
Tri made pick up incredibly easy, for drop off let's just expand the text to somewhere around the house for more seemless drop off 🤙. I took his great looking Lotus into the mountains and that thing was SO COMFY I had no idea how incredibly nice the interior would be. Better than most Porsche's. Tri keeps the car immaculate, it's easily the best quality Turo rental I've ever had. Fun car, give it a whirl. Definitely was best when put into sport and used manual paddles as the automatic transmission is slow. Make sure you take the time to let the oil get to the right temps, this car does take a while to warm up. Very cool experience.
Matthew was great and easy to deal with. Very friendly and responsive. The car was amazing, super clean (sanitized for COVID) and drove like a dream. Would definitely rent again, you won't be disappointed.
Matthew was great to rent from and the car was amazing. Would definitely rent again.
This is now my second time renting Glenn's Lotus and this trip was even more amazing than the last. Glenn is truly an excellent Turo host. He is very communicative and takes great care of his amazing car. If anyone is on the fence about taking the Lotus out for a trip, do it. You won't regret it.
I really enjoyed driving the lotus! It’s definitely a head turner. Glenn was great at staying in communication and accommodating some small time changes. Would highly recommend renting this car!
I loved my experience with Ottoline. We rented the Lotus. The car was even better than we expected. Will definitely be coming back to them. Brian provides excellent customer service and was very knowledgable of the car.
Sheel is an amazing host!! From the moment I booked this fantastic vehicle he was very attentive to what I was looking for. He was very informative about the ins and outs of the car and also told us not to hesitate to call him if we needed him for any questions or help. He also messaged us mid day to check to see if we needed him and to wish us well. We had such a fun time renting the Lotus my husband could not stop smiling he was so happy to drive it. Sheel was right on time for drop off and pick up. He was all dressed up and gave me a rose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary 💕. We will definitely rent from him again!
What a great host. He was knowledgeable about the car and provided a very easy pickup and delivery. This car is a blast to drive and I had zero issues all around!
My husband loved driving the lotus for his 40th Birthday! Definitely a head turning car for the day, especially with the license plate as bitcoin haha! Would definitely rent from Josh again!
Best thing ever!! We rented the Lotus Evora 400 as our getaway car for our wedding and it was absolute perfection! Bryan was super communicative and accommodating, going above and beyond to help make our wedding weekend extra special. We'll DEFINITELY be back to rent from him!!
Amazing car! Super tasteful modifications make this car a dream to drive. Matthew is very accommodating and responsive to any need. Hope to rent from him again!
Best drivers car I have ever driven. This car is far more analog Vs the Porsche 911/Caymans and Corvettes. The steering feel is sublime, the suspension supple and sporty, the engine sonorous, the thrust intoxicating, the balance perfect. Michael as always is a top notch host, really chill and passionate about his hobby. This is my second time renting from him, and I intend to continue. How many folks on Turo are renting exquisite cars for those who love driving?
Experience with David was fantastic. He took the time to go over good routes for driving, sightseeing and the unique characteristics of the car. He has a very unique set of rentals and if this isn’t reason enough to reach out his friendliness and service is, mahalo!
Tri was a great host, and the Evora was a dream. The car is tame, yet aggressive. Very wide for a car it's height, so be careful of that. 10/10 would rent again
Fantastic rental. The car was amazing, and it was great to get walked through the details of the Evora, which really helped me understand how the car was designed to be driven. I hope to rent another soon. Thanks!
Orlando was very easy to book with! Car was fantastic and will definitely been renting from again!
Great car; the Lotus arbors offers exceptional handling, great looks and is super sporty. May need to buy one now! Tri made the process super simple and I was a first time turo user
Iliya was easy to work with and very responsive. The car was in great condition and so much fun to drive. Will rent again!
Easy pick up and return, great communication throughout, I would definitely rent this car again!
Sheel was great! The car was a blast! I will definitely rent from Sheel again. Thank you so much!
Lliya was a greatTuro host. Excellent communication. The car was a joy to ride. Very well maintained and you will get attention wherever you go. Definitely I would rent it again!
Ottoline was great company to rent from fast professional quix response time and great cars! Will definitely rent from them again
Josh provided quick acceptance for the same day rental I had booked, had the car ready to go and provided great tips on how to drive this extremely fun car. Thank you, Josh!
Awesome car. Matthew made pick up and drop off super simple. I highly recommend renting it for a weekend cruise in the mountains or down the PCH. 5 Star experience for sure!!!
Matthew is an awesome host. He puts customer service first and has crazy knowledge about British roadsters to boot. His Lotus is an absolute treat to drive. Hands down, it will redefine how you understand the words “purpose built.” I can’t recommend Matthew or his Elise enough. Great host, great car, great time in LA.
We really enjoyed this Lotus Evora, while exploring wine country and the coast. The car has a few enhancements that really add to it's sporty feel. Just push the "S" button and it jumps to life, blipping the throttle on downshifts and holding gears a little longer as you tackle the grades. If you're packing light with a couple of carry-on suitcases and backpacks, you should have no trouble on a week's vacation for 2. This is a perfect car for some of the best twisty coastal roads in the country. Just be ready for lots of staring and questions about the car! It's quite a looker.
this car is a beast! loved driving it, she had killer acceleration and can turn on a dime...at speed! also, orlando was great to deal with, very accommodating, will definitely rent from him again!
Everything about renting from Glenn is absolute perfection, Glenn is a superb host. After I miss read pick up instructions Glenn had no issue with suddenly changing picking me up from the airport and change time of start of rental. Glenn is polite, accomidating and super knowledgeable about his car. As for the car there is no other way than to describe this car as a marvel of engineering, this is the car to rent. I spent the entire time laughing and smiling, the joy this car gives you is unbelievable. I have never enjoyed an experience as much as I did with this rental. You must must must rent this car from Glenn you will not be disappointed.
What an unbelievable car! Matthew is an amazing host. The experience with this car as well as this host were top notch. . I wish all Turo experiences were like this. Will rent again and highly recommend renting from Matthew.
Had a great time renting Tri’s Evora! It was very easy and straightforward picking up and dropping off his car.
Great car in great shape. And Matt was a really great guy! We loved this car - thanks Matt!
Wonderful car. The Lotus Elise was a magnificent ride. Extremely good at handling esp on twisties. Getting in and out is very difficult, but once you are in it's about as rewarding drive as it can be. Storage is also very limited given there's a cover in the trunk, so really there's only room for 1 backpack. I highly recommend the car, but it's mostly for the driving experience. Think of it as a road legal gokart.
Excellent communication! Josh had the car ready to go when I arrived. His Exige is a lot of fun and definitely draws attention. If this car is on your list of cars to try (or even you are a performance car enthusiast who has never considered driving an Exige), I highly recommend Josh's Lotus.
Josh was awesome. I rented this car for my husband birthday as this is his dream car. He had a smile on his face all day. If you want to enjoy a luxury car, this is the way to go as you will not be disappointed. Josh was very professional, and I would definitely rent this car again.
Top notch vehicle and service. To be able to get a premium vehicle without having to travel into Boston was huge. Even better is that Sheel is an amazing host. This car turns heads like crazy, which is exactly what my son was hoping for...not to mention it drives like a supercar. I would definitely rent this car again.
Glenn was a great and helpful person to deal with. The car was all you can dream of and more! very clean The interior was sooo nice. It drove so smooth fast and a persons dream car. Had a great experience would differently rent again
A pleasure to rent from. Great communication with the owner and a wonderful car to rent. Head turner for sure. Satisfied with all aspects of the renting process.
Amazing car - super car looks and performance at an affordable price. Very friendly host, replies right away. Highly recommended!
Very satisfied repeat customer. The car was professionally maintained and the service was exceptional! Thanks again
This car is beyond incredible. The sensation of speed is intoxicating, the steering... telepathic. Would rent again and again.
The Elise offers unbelievable driving experience and Matt was the perfect host! He took time to explain the Elise and was very accommodating. The car was flawlessly maintained and drove beautifully. His passion for cars and the Lotus brand made the trip even better. If you want an unforgettable drive you've got to check out Matt's Elise!
Fantastic car, fantastic experience. Not much more to say - planning to return to Austin just to drive more of these amazing cars.
Josh was very accommodating and easy to work with! The Lotus was was fun Christmas surprise for my husband!
Had a BLAST! Surprised my husband for his 40th bday. He was smiling cheek to cheek! Orlando was awesome as well. Communication was fast and very laid back. Definitely worth taking a spin in.
What an amazing day we had zooming around in this well kept, exceedingly well tuned gem. Our goal for the day was just to find some joy in these extraordinary times. We drove down the the seaport area at Sheel’s Rex commendation and we could have asked for a more fun day. We highly recommend taking this car out for a day - or more. We created some amazing memories. thanks Sheel!!!
Car turns heads, super clean, runs smooth. Host was great to work with. Would highly recommend, great value
AMAZING car and great host! My wife and I are huge car enthusiast and we pretty much drove to Vegas just to rent out Glenn’s car. Super fun ride and Glenn is very easy to deal with! He is very accommodating and knows a lot about cars. Totally recommend 👍
What a great experience! Glenn was awesome to communicate with and helpful. The car was awesome. Handles so well, fast and fun. Not many Lotus out there so this turns heads for sure. Highly recommend both the car and Glenn. Thank you Glenn it was awesome!
Glenn, and his Lotus were fantastic. Communication was great, pick up was easy. Glenn spent a few minutes with us showing us the car and features. This was helpful given that it is an exotic. Car was flawless and drew a ton of attention on the strip! What an amazing machine it truly is. An absolute pleasure all around. Thanks again Glenn!
Aimann is super friendly and made the rental process really easy! Awesome car and great first experience with Turo.
Aimann’s Lotus was great. It looks like an exotic both inside and out. I would absolutely recommend this car if you are looking to make a statement wherever you go.
Glenn is one of two hosts who I work with in Vegas. Glenn is honest, his car (the lotus) is absolutely amazing, and I had an A+ experience. The Lotus is literally the definition of "super car." Looks, performance, etc, are out of this world. If you are not satisfied with Glenn's Lotus then I will buy you dinner. (And not from Burger King). Good luck Glenn I will continue to work with amazing hosts like you who let folks like myself live their automotive dreams.
Great clean car! Response time was perfect and the car ran great! I definitely recommend renting this supercar
Best experience I have had on Turo, bar none. I have never driven a Lotus and have had my eye on Iliya's ad for a few weeks. The Evora exceeded my expectations, felt like a go kart compared to the typical BMW M and AMG sports cars. The aftermarket exhaust is intoxicating and suits the car perfectly. Iliya was responsive throughout the process and a true car enthusiast.
Very fun car to drive around Los Angeles. One of the coolest cars I've driven even compared to more expensive cars. I hope to have time to rent again soon!
Matt’s Lotus is beyond fun. It’s bare-bones and an absolute riot to spend some time with. It was everything I’d hoped it would be - loud, quick, fun - and more! Even renting it during the hottest week of the year, I couldn’t get the smile off my face. It is the most joyful driving experience I think I’ve ever had.
Amazing host and super awesome car! If you haven’t driven a Lotus yet, start with this one!
Amazing Sports Car, Super Amazing Host! Sheel is such a gracious, kind and patient gentleman to work with! Surprised my husband with this Lotus for a 2 day birthday surprise weekend. He was elated to drive this baby!! It is a beautiful car that really handles well. Everyone kept looking at this car, it is a real head turner! I would do this again in a heart beat. Sheel thank you so much!!
Tri‘s Evora is great, the analog sports car experience seems to only exist with Lotus. The car provides so much feedback. You will be surprised by how comfortable the Evora is, alongside being razor sharp in Sport mode.
Absolute easiest pickup/return. Tri is a amazing renter. Thank you so much for the experience. The car was amazing.
This cars turns heads, pulls hard and exhaust rocks! This Lotus far exceeded expectations and working with Mike was great. I’m 6’5” and fit comfortably.
I love cars, and I love driving and this was the best experience that I have ever had behind the wheel. The steering, the brakes, the balance, the grip, the throttle response. All are outstanding. This is the perfect sports car, and Matthew has taken very good care of it. Rent it now and then go find yourself an open road in the mountains. You will not be disappointed!
Our trip with Mathew's Elise was amazing. The car was extremely clean and performed beautifully for. Mathew is an excellent host, very communicative flexible and generous. I would absolutely rent from him again.
We had a great experience and fun time driving the car. Thanks for sharing this special car. Iliya is very responsive for our questions
Tri the owner is super professional. As for the car, it was awesome. Don't let it's size fool you regarding power and speed. I will definitely get this car again, and highly recommend it. Awesome 👍
The car was awesome. We had a great time driving it. The check in and check out process was very easy and quick.
Fast, smooth, and fun. The process for pick up and drop off was quick and easy, The owner was a cool guy.
Awesome car. Just like a normal car on the freeway except with a slightly loud exhaust. However once you get into the twisties it is amazing! Especially in sport mode. Very spirited and agile. I've never driven anything that was sooo much fun! Got 26mpg too! PS Iliya is a really nice easy going guy!
