Oh my !  That's one of those opportunities that if you are able to take advantage of, you should jump on it !  Judging by the rates shown on the website, it looks like they really don't want you to drive very far with one of these cars.  It's almost as if they are encouraging you to be seen in the car rather than actually drive it .  .  .

I agree. Id be pushing the miles driving it through red rock then all the way to Hoover Dam. I only wanted it for a few hours anyways.

I was looking at this and the wife said no.

Now that company is advertising "unlimited miles," which would be awesome !  Was their McLaren not available ?

Pics or it didnt happen rite? 

Here she is



Vegas is cool.



Wife was taking selfies



Mclaren does NOT do speed bumps or paying for parking very well.



Red Rock Canyon was nice





Thats about it picture wise, i had a few more on my real camera.

Experience wise, it was very fast. blipping the throttle on the onramp gets you to illegal speeds very quickly. Super fun to drive. Spooling up the turbos on the strip in front of a crowd is entertaining.

Firstworld problems:
It was hard to get in/out of.
I almost dinged the doors twice (lol vertical doors)
The passenger side Air Control LCD was burnt out
The backup camera only worked once
For some reason the Front trunk floor got soaked with water or condensation
The fans were loud as FUCK (ever heard a cooling fan come on a semi? Smiley

That's an awesome trip in an awesome car.  I've only been to Vegas once, (back in 2007), and didn't rent a car or do any sightseeing.  Should I ever get there again, I'm going to make time to explore the area.  The mountains are beautiful.

Did you get to see the Imperial Palace car collection, or enjoy The Buffet at the Bellagio .  .  .

That's so awesome.

Years ago, in Miami, I rented a 360 Spyder... wanted to rent something else but couldn't convince myself to spend the extra $$$.
