When Miami is your travel destination, the style challenge is daunting. Dressing the part in this trend-conscious town demands top tier everything, and the most powerful way to make a high impact fashion statement is by piloting an exotic car.
If you're aiming to arm your south Florida visit with the automotive equivalent of shock and awe, add Lou La Vie to your speed dial. The privately owned company caters to celebs, high rollers, and aspirational types alike, stocking no less than 3 million dollars of high-end autos in its new 8,000-square-foot showroom. If there's any question to the agency's mission statement, the name says it all: Except for a missing "e," "Lou La Vie" is close to the French loue la vie, which literally means "rent the life."
Sports car stock runs the gamut of automotive desirability – from the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and Audi R8 Spyder to the Nissan GT-R and the only Ferrari 458 Spyder available for rent on the East Coast. If you're hoping for something more formal, dip into Lou La Vie's sedan and SUV arsenal, which includes a Rolls-Royce Ghost, Porsche Panamera, Cadillac Escalade ESV, and Range Rover Evoque.
More information: Rental rates range from $800 to $1,500 per day, and most cars are saddled with a steep $2-$3 per mile charge after a 75 to 100 mile daily limit, so you'll need to pick your cruise route as carefully as you choose your steed. [loulavie.com]
