The car was delivered directly to the hotel I was staying in and it looked really fantastic up close!
Delivery and collection was a hassle-free process and even though I've rented cars several times in my life, this was the best experience so far.
...It was amazing and exhilarating! I could feel the power in my hands while driving the car! It was like being in control of a beautiful and powerful beast.
