You Can’t Afford To Buy It But Can You Afford To Rent It?

The Bugatti Veyron is the fastest and most expensive car in the world. Let’s face it, not many of people have a spare $1.3 million laying around (assuming you can get it at the $1.3 million retail price) to buy one. For those of you who just wants to get a taste of driving the world’s fastest supercar, HVC Prestige in England has a deal for you. For $40,000, you can rent their Veyron for one day.

Now, many will consider spending enough money to buy a normal car so you can rent a supercar for one day is beyond stupid. However, it gets better. The one day rental comes with a mileage limit – 50 miles. That works out to $800 per mile. Then again, according to Autoblog, 50 miles maybe enough.

That 50 miles might feel like quite a lot when you realize that during every minute you spend behind the wheel of this thing, you’ll have sweaty palms, a dry mouth, and a severely elevated heart rate. HVC isn’t messing around with joyriders, either. You must be 28 or older with a valid license for at least the last 5 years. There’s that aforementioned mileage cap, as well as a $300,000 insurance deposit, too.

OK, the $300K deposit is going too far! There’s not way I’m renting it. I wonder how many customers will actually take HVC up on this offer?
