Hertz's hot wheels

If the word “sensible” typically defines your rental car selections, this news item won’t interest you. That’s because there’s nothing really sensible about renting an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, a Ferrari California or a Lamborghini Gallardo through Hertz’s new Dream Cars lineup — although, we admit, that driving one of these babies would be pretty sweet. The completely sensible or, uh, senseless program will eventually let rental customers in the US choose from a line of ultra high-end performance vehicles in 35 cities, though not every car will be available everywhere. For example, the SRT Viper that we would’ve rented, if we were into this sorta thing, is currently only available in California and Texas. Reservations can be made online or via telephone, and a Hertz rep will either meet a customer at their airport terminal and give them a one-on-one orientation, or deliver the car directly. Rentals range from US$350 to US$1500 a day. tel: (888) 296-9124;
