The prestige, luxury and supercar hire / rental sector is rife with brokers, bedroom pretenders and worse of all, uninsured vehicles.
Many clients ask us why they have to pay more with us for their prestige car hire, and the answer is self-explanatory.....like most things in life, you get what you pay for.
1: All our cars are covered by a fully comprehensive 'self-drive hire or reward' policy.
2: We do not keep any stock over 2/3 years old or 25,000 miles
3: We own ALL of our fleet, unlike some companies that make similar claims.
4: We stock the most up to date variants and limited editions.
5: Our rates are completely transparent.
6: We operate as Hertz Supercars. Trusted by the largest rental brand in the world.
7: Polite staff with an exyensive knowledge of the hire cars they are offering.
8: The entire fleet is maintained to the highest standard at a 9000 sq ft facility.
9: Real staff and real people, not a call centre or PO Box address.
10: Our images are of our vehicles on our premises, peace of mind.
Our advice when hiring a Supercar or arranging a prestige rental is that you confirm who owns the car? Ask to see the insurance policy, after all; it's your life and finances that are at risk, not the unscrupulous brokers. Go and see the hire car before you pay, if you can't then ask yourself why? Visit the companies premises and make sure that you are dealing with a legitimate company.

High-performance cars worth hundreds of thousands of pounds were seized and drivers were fined during a police crackdown on boy racers in Knightsbridge.
Ferraris, Bentleys, Porsches, BMWs and a Bugatti Veyron were pulled over for spot-checks last night. Alleged offences included driving without insurance, or having windows that were too heavily tinted.
Residents say they are kept awake by the noise of cars, mostly owned by young Middle Eastern men, being raced into the early hours, and claim pedestrians are being put at risk.

Set to be unveiled at the start of next month in Geneva, the Ultimate will be limited to just 500 units worldwide, for 20 markets, produced to individual order.

The new CLS 63 AMG is a case in point. It receives a bespoke engine and transmission, a new front axle, substantially modified suspension and steering systems as well a unique damping system.
The extensive styling changes inside and out are literally the icing on a seriously re-engineered cake. And AMG engineers have put over one million test kilometres into both the engine and the finished car.
It gets the company’s new M157 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8 engine which replaces AMG’s old 6.3-litre naturally-aspirated V8.
We also have the C63 Amg for hire a Premiere Velocity, it has exactly the same engine and the same noise!
