Best Place to Rent a Car That Goes 160 MPH
Sure, they rent 'Vettes -- for $299 a day. They also offer Porsche Boxsters and Mercedes CLK roadsters for the same price. Dodge Vipers and 911s are $100 more; new Ford Thunderbirds are $249 per day; and BMW Z3 convertibles are a bargain at $199. Note: Mileage is limited to 100 miles per day. Call to check on the frequent weekday specials, and always mention BreezeNet (www.bnm.com) for a 10 percent discount, which is, conveniently, about the same price as full-coverage insurance. Go ahead and get the insurance, then snatch up the keys, lean over the rental counter, and with a frenzied look in your eyes, exclaim, "I feel the need, the need for speed !" They like that.
