Brand new 2019 vanderhall Venice
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.
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.
*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, in fact when I took it to get washed the other day it was $80, so the fee is a steal.
*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.
