Hertz now offering Lotus Elise rentals in Italy

Hertz Lotus Elise

Any car enthusiast who has visited Italy would have noticed the tight, sinuous roads that wind their way through the countryside and dreamed of unleashing a sportscar on them. But until now the fastest set of wheels available at the airport rental counter was a Fiat Punto. A vehicle unworthy of the roads and the scenic countryside.

Rental car company Hertz has finally done something about this injustice and announced that a posse of Lotus Elise SCs have been added to its Italian fleet. The new Lotuses form part of Hertz Italiana’s Fun Collection, and are all painted bright yellow and feature Hertz-branded interior trim.

Hertz has offered the Corvette ZHZ and Shelby Mustang GT-H in the United States for some time now, but this is the first time such a sports car has been offered for rent in Europe by the company.

You’re dreaming if you think it will be cheap, but the Hertz Elise SCs are a convenient option for renting a proper sportscar to explore the country’s autostradas and narrow B-roads with. The biggest problem is figuring out how to fit two weeks worth of luggage into one.
