I Rented A Budget Las Vegas Ferrari Rental


What’s going on everybody. Rob Ferretti here in Las Vegas Nevada. See there’s Las Vegas Behind me I’ve got a 458 rental car that I just
scored from a company that’s not mine I just doing a little bit of market
research here because in Vegas they seem to make offers that are too good to be
true and I’ve been in the business for 15 years when something’s too good to be
true there’s usually a reason now this far behind me was six hundred
dollars for a day with 175 miles and no security deposit that
doesn’t make good business sense, because it’s not even profitable. Let’s
see if we can figure out what the business model is. So the car from 20 feet looks good, it’s on point. A bunch of little like nicks and scratches but that could
happen on any car that’s i cant pretend like that that would be an issue to me
if I rented this car. This doesn’t line up clearly the guy and
I think one of my bigger problems was the guy was feeding me lines of BS he
told me that that was normal over there and when it came to this side I said “so why is this line not like that” his answer was simply “that the car flexes
that’s perfectly normal” he made up a story about the horses
being stolen all the time I’ve had six or eight 458 never had a horse stolen
told me made a hundred of them and they were all stolen so still again don’t
believe him but this one hasn’t been stolen he said because it’s been welded
on. Some of the stuff that concerned me he sells insurance for a hundred fifty
dollars to people from New York who don’t have insurance or to people from Europe
I asked them why I couldn’t purchase the insurance for the parts have an extra
layer he told me “you’re not allowed to double insure a car”. I inquired why you
can’t double insure a car because when I travel Hertz tries to sell me insurance
when I already have insurance, it’s just what they do. I don’t know what the issue was
there then I asked if I could use Amex premium car rental protection and they
said no they don’t accept it because Amex takes a year to pay. So when I
started digging into it a little bit on the insurance end I started talking
about (to off camera) good thanks. When I started digging into it on
the insurance end I started asking well what about this what about this and he
starts telling me well if you damaged wheel which the most common damage
usually you have to buy a whole set because they don’t sell just one wheel and now I
start getting into the talking to the guy who knows what he’s talking about
but I’m pretending like I don’t know, and I’m like – look guy you said a bunch of stuff I
disagree with but understand you don’t have to buy a full set of wheels if one
wheel is damaged or has to be replaced you can still get one “no you can’t” so then we start playing
the internet game one like we’ll go look up this website but look at this website
i’m not even talking about used wheels on ebay i’m talking about going you can
walk into a Ferrari dealership buy a wheel 2,500 bucks from the manufacturer but
you can at least buy one. So I see the setup there that if they are pinning you
for damage or something like that that they may I take you to the cleaners if
you know what I mean because you don’t know what you’re doing. Now let’s show
you the interior this is really where you’re going to see the most noticeable, I mean from outside the car looks fine inside I mean the seat is completely in
disrepair it’s like falling apart let’s see we need to focus on that I mean so you have that and that that’s
a replaceable thing I mean honestly we’ve at Gotham run cars up to the
500,000, 500,000! Sorry the odometer was broke and it was 500,000. We’ve run them up
to about a 100,000 early on when we started the company but we’ve
always replace seats reupholstered them because nobody wants to get into have
something like that this car and this sort of explains what you’re looking at
this explains why it’s so cheap because (Warning beeps repeat) …because… (Still beeping) …ok, you stop… (Still beeping) let’s see, let’s get rid of those error messages (beeping stops) because the car has 73,000 miles on it so clearly they
just run them down until they’re no longer runnable and then they get rid of
them so that’s that answers that I mean the standard like the buttons are all
broken the quality inside is a little bit worse than it should be but you’re you’re paying half of what
anyone else charges so that’s what you get it’s got an exhaust tick in the back the
differential is no good when you take it any sort of driveway an angle is
something like that the rear diff make some really weird noise, it drives
straight it’s a decent value if you don’t really care about what you’re
getting but as far as anything else i mean i’d
rather spend the extra couple bucks get a newer car that’s gonna drive better
and there’s the exhaust tick let’s see, if we shut the window and hear that (Engine revving a noticeable ticking coming from the exhaust) so you’ve got that these are the major
things I’ve noticed you got that exhaust tick when you step on the gas i’ll see
if i can just drive here for a second when you let your foot off the gas you got this weird like sighing sound
and the transmission is not that great either or the clutch whatever it doesn’t I’ve been told varying stories one of
them being that this car doesn’t have a clutch and it’s a little sloppy when i
say a little sloppy it’s not very smooth between gears but it’ll give you the
idea of what it’s like to drive one of these things it’s never gonna driving an
80,000 mile ferrari that that’s been in a rental fleet and probably not
maintained the T will never drive like a newer one with a couple thousand
miles on it. So if all you care about is curb appeal and not having the newest
nicest Ferrari that’s not a terrible investment or not terrible use of money
if you’re more concerned about what the post rental experience will be like
that’s where i’d probably be concerned to have a guy feeding the lines and
lines of BS about stuff that I know is actually untrue that doesn’t speak well
for the guy running the company and when you were the guy at least working at the
company and obviously I’m not going to give you the company name because i want
to plug in it’s not something I feel is worthy on the good end or the bad end, but at the end of the day something to be aware of you get what you pay for
and when you do business with somebody especially on a smaller level with no
security deposit and they didn’t bother running my insurance or anything like
that you’re really running the risk of relying that you’re going to do a decent
transaction with a decent person I didn’t really get that vibe so that’s my
experience what you get for 700 bucks in vegas i got a Ferrari for the day which
not whatever if you want got some dream cars doing driving experience Vegas
never get myself a plug we’re gonna allow you to the drive Ferraris,
Lamborghinis, McLarens and we’ve got much newer nicer cars is not gonna be at
this cheap cutthroat rate but that we’ve got nowhere nicer cars and you get
guaranteed plus we have a fleet look out four hundred cars in California so
anything you can think of that you want we could probably get it over from the
LA office. If you’re looking to pay for it thank you guys for watching I hope you
enjoyed this experience a little walkthrough on a 73,000 miles Ferarri
rental car in Vegas i will catch you next time
