My take on these exotic type rentals is the mileage in the base contract is usually limited, 50 miles being most common. If I were to spend money for one I wouldn't be thinking about being a Strip cruising poser, but instead taking it out to the Lake Mead area and doing some performance driving. To me that's what cars like that are meant for. Unfortunately mileage limits would not even get you there and back.

Evan, don't let that stop you. At least some of those cars come with semi-automatic transmission -- you shift gears up or down via paddles on the steering wheel, and the car automatically handles the clutch (there's no clutch pedal). Some might even offer a fully automatic mode. I found out about that because I really suck at shifting gears, but was able to drive a similar model at the Speedway. Lots of fun!
