I'm planning a business trip to Scotland in the next few weeks, and I'll take a rental car for a few days.

Browsing through the "Avis prestige" website (do not want to spend 4 days in a Peugeot), besides the usual Astons, Porsches, Mercs,... you can now rent a brand new black GTR.

Avis Prestige rental cars - luxury car hire from BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Mini, Volkswagen and Porsche

Weirdly, at 540£/day, it's significantly more expensive than a 911 C4S (375£), a Jag XKR (250£) or even an Aston Martin V8 (485£), but less than a F430 spider (700£) or a Murcielago LP640 (1000£).

Most of those cars are available only in or around London.

I'll probably go for the XKR, but it's nice to know...

Maybe cheaper to hire one and track it rather than have pre and post inspections done!

Love to see the look on the techies faces when they download the data from that GTR....!

I wonder how long it would take to swap the UK dash to JDM one

Would they notice when you returned it?

£547 for a replacement transmission:D

Let's keep a track of any parts needed then we can split the hire cost, meet up one weekend and get everything fixed!

The mileage restriction and excess charges kill any chance of it being "worth it". 125 miles only and a charge of £2 for each extra mile!

For a new engine it sounds a bloody bargain.
