Hertz Rents Out Lotus Elise SCs in Italy

If you’re headed to Italy and don’t want to get stuck driving a Fiat Panda, here’s an option: Hertz will rent you a special Lotus Elise SC…

In the tradition of the GT350H, Shelby GT, and Corvette ZHZ, select Hertz Italiana locations will rent the Loti as part of its “Fun Collection.”

“We launched the Hertz Fun Collection to give our customers the possibility to drive the cars they have always dreamt of driving,” said Giuseppe Caminiti, fleet director for Hertz Italiana.

“The Lotus Elise SC is one of these dream cars, and by including it in the Hertz’s Fun Collection our customers have an opportunity to drive a real sports car.”

Like Hertz’s previous specialty offerings, these cars receive a few unique tweaks. This batch of Elise SCs are painted in Hertz’s shade of yellow, while the cockpit receives quilted leather seats with embroidered Hertz logos.
