If you’re planning on a vacation or road trip either to Miami or Los Angeles and you want to make the trip by renting one of the most desirable vehicles on the planet, it’s likely you’re stumped as to which you should choose.
Any choice will come with its own set of bonuses and necessary compromises, but with Falcon Car Rental, you won’t have to sweat the details. Falcon Car Rental not only provides exotic and luxury convertible rentals in Miami and LA, but we also offer advice and guidance to ensure you get the most out of your time with our vehicles.
Below, we’ve compiled three excellent choices that fit squarely on the spectrum between luxury and performance.
Bentley Continental GTC Rental in Los Angeles/Miami
Let’s start with the brand that offers the best balance of both attributes, Bentley. For those interested in a Bentley rental in Los Angeles or Miami, we suggest the superlative Bentley Continental GTC. It’s a grand touring convertible that offers renters an incredibly comfortable and lavish interior, with leather, aluminum, or wood covering every surface and zero plastic in sight.
With its top up, you can enjoy quiet cruising in the Bentley Continental GTC, but drop it, and you can hear the magnificent roar of the car’s 500+ hp V8 engine. Even though it is capable of coddling both its driver and passengers in complete serenity, the GTC transforms into an absolute beast once the gas pedal hits the floor, arriving at 60 mph in just over four seconds.
Even with that being said, though, the Bentley Continental GTC isn’t just a rocket ship meant to eat up miles in a straight line, either. Bentley has truly performed some magic, blessing the Continental GTC with incredible handling and braking as well. Remember, we’re talking about a two-door convertible that’s only nine inches shorter than a Ford Explorer and weighs about as much.
The point is that the Bentley Continental GTC is a vehicle that beautifully mixes luxury and astoundingly solid performance. Still, if you’re more interested in the luxury aspect of a convertible rental in LA or Miami, there’s another vehicle you should consider.
Rolls-Royce Dawn Rental in Los Angeles/Miami
We should be upfront about the Rolls-Royce Dawn. It does, indeed, focus more on comfort compared to the performance offered by the Bentley Continental GTC, but with a 563 hp V12 engine and a 4.8-second 0 to 60 acceleration time, the Dawn can, and does, still provide some thrills.
That being said, though, once you’re behind the wheel, thoughts of mashing the gas are likely to disappear, given that the Rolls-Royce Dawn magnifies all of the Bentley GTC’s luxury tendencies tenfold.
The designers considered every detail that could increase comfort, with features that you will not find on any other vehicle. It starts with reverse-hinged doors that close with the push of a button, followed by what’s possibly the softest, most elegant driver’s seat you’ll ever sit in. There’s even a hidden umbrella inside a slot in the door frame, alongside thick, fluffy carpets that will make passengers want to take their shoes off and relax.
Should you need to close the roof, the operation takes less than 30 seconds and is completely automated. Once sealed in, the outside world disappears, and occupants can enjoy complete serenity. Speaking of, if you’re worried that your party of four might need a larger vehicle, perish the thought. For rear passengers, entry and exit are both a breeze despite there only being two doors, and they’ll be quite happy as they enjoy the supple back seats.
Altogether, a Rolls-Royce rental in Miami or LA will transform your vision of luxury. That said, if pure performance is what you crave, you may want to check out the last vehicle on our list.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Rental Los Angeles/Miami
The Porsche 911 is approaching its 60th production year, and in all that time, it has become the world standard for sports cars, dazzling drivers all over the world with its ability to dominate a racetrack and incredible variety of performance variants to satisfy every possible need.
In its current generation, the Porsche 911 offers astonishing performance and impeccable road manners, especially in its all-wheel drive (AWD) Carrera 4S form. Modern 911s handle as though they are slot cars, and with generational refinements, standard 911 variants, like Carreras, have become excellent grand touring machines.
You shouldn’t expect the same level of comfort as a Bentley or Rolls-Royce, but both driver and passenger will be comfortable on any long road trips. There are two tiny seats in the rear that can accommodate small children or shorter adults for short drives, but you should definitely consider the 911 Carrera 4S a two-seater for all other intents and purposes.
Once you up the throttle, though, any considerations of practicality will melt away, as the Carrera 4S is easily capable of jumping from 0 to 60 mph in no more than three seconds. Furthermore, even though the 911 Carrera 4S is tuned for pleasant rides on the streets, it could easily make mincemeat of any road course.
Those interested in a Porsche rental in Los Angeles or Miami will be exceedingly satisfied with a 911 Carrera 4S. Don’t worry if you can’t drive stick, either, as our 911s feature Porsches' brilliant PDK dual-clutch automatic.
