Renting a Supercar is Cheaper than You Think

New service uses crowd-funding to drive the price down to human levels.

Many gearheads who never could afford to buy a supercar will, at some point in their lives, find themselves renting a dream car from a rental company or specialized service. But with the price of daily, or even hourly, rentals of these beauties running as high as $1,200 per day for a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo (with a limited number of miles allowed), even a rental may be out of many people's reach. Aiming to change that is a new New York-based service called Blancfleet.

Blancfleet uses crowd-funding to raise the capital required to buy vehicles, with each member of the crowd essentially "buying" a day to use this car in the future. Every car's calendar is made up of three years' worth of one-day rentals, each with unlimited mileage. According to Blancfleet, with this method, that same 2014 Gallardo will cost renters just $535 a day. The company's current prices start at $217 per day for a Range Rover Sport, climbing through their fleet which includes a Mercedes S550, G550 and SLS AMG, Tesla Model S, Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R.
