This year went by fast, but the cars that Premier Financial leases are faster.
Premier Financial has been leasing exotic cars since 1997, and each year they compile a list of the 10 most often rented exotic cars. It’s no wonder that the automobiles that made the list this year did so because they’re all amazing machines that Premier Financial makes it simple to drive.
1. Audi R8
Audi’s supercar had been a long time coming when it debuted in 2006, and it’s been a wonderful car ever since, a well-loved fixture in the exotic and supercar world for its huge power, confident dynamism, and world-class looks. The R8 Performance Coupe, which has 562 horsepower and rear-wheel drive, starts at $148,700 and is still going strong after 15 years.
2. Ferrari 488 GTB
The Ferrari 4888 GTB, as the successor to the 458, was the first Ferrari since the F40 to include a turbocharged engine, in this instance a twin-turbocharged 3.9 litre V8 producing 661 horsepower and accelerating the car from 0 to 125 miles per hour in 8.3 seconds. The Pista and Pista Spider variants of the 488 raise the stakes even higher, and it’s no surprise that so many people want one.
3. Lamborghini Aventador
The Aventador is still Lamborghini’s legendary flagship V12 automobile, even if it is nearing the end of its production cycle. The Aventador boasts raw power and brutal strength thanks to its naturally aspirated V12 engine, and the SVJ model exercised that strength by posting a sub-7-minute production car lap time at the Nürburgring. Even as manufacture of Aventadors comes to an end, the used market thrives, as it should for a car like the Aventador.
4. Mercedes-Benz G-Class
There doesn’t appear to be anyone who hasn’t heard of or admired the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. There’s no shortage of enthusiasts of the rare and classic body-on-frame SUV, with the luxury off-roader continually being yelled out in songs or highlighted on television. When you consider that the top-of-the-line AMG G63 has 577 horsepower and comes with a low-range gear and three locking differentials, it’s easy to see why the G-Class is so popular.
5. Bentley Continental GT
The latest edition of this swoon-worthy luxury coupe has been around since 2003, and it is currently in its second generation. However, neither we nor Premier Financial’s customers have grown tired of the Continental GT. That’s because it’s a dream come true, with all-wheel drive, at least 542 horsepower, and up to 28 miles per gallon, not to mention the plush interior and superb handling.
6. Lamborghini Urus
Following in the footsteps of its Porsche Cayenne sibling, the Lamborghini Urus has quickly become Lamborghini’s most popular vehicle. With loud, strong, angular Lamborghini style, 641 horsepower, and a quarter-mile time of just over 11 seconds, it’s a Lamborghini through and through. The Urus’ popularity stems from the fact that it is both a Lamborghini and an SUV, and who wouldn’t want the best of both worlds?
7. Porsche 911 GT3
Porsche’s ultimate track-focused 911 is as popular as it is on the road. For decades, the Porsche 911 has been a dynamic, popular, and incredibly capable sports vehicle, and the 911 GT3 and even faster GT3RS push the 911 to its maximum limit. It doesn’t get much faster than the 2019 GT3RS, which has 520 horsepower from its 4-liter flat-six engine and weighs as low as 3,153 pounds.
8. McLaren 720S
McLaren’s racing pedigree and commitment to innovation have resulted in some truly spectacular vehicles over the years. With its beautiful appearance and “butterfly” dihedral doors, 710 horsepower, and a quarter-mile time of under 10.1 seconds, the F1 set world records, the P1 helped usher in a new era for the whole supercar business, and the 720S became a modern classic.
9. Porsche 911 Turbo
While the GT3 is Porsche’s most powerful 911 model, many customers prefer the 911 Turbo because it strikes a perfect combination of performance and luxury. However, just because the GT3 is faster doesn’t mean the Turbo is. A Turbo S will take two and a half seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour, and Porsche claims the car will travel up to 205 miles per hour. Past Turbo S 911s have already become modern classics, so it’s no surprise that the 911 Turbo continues to be popular.
10. Lamborghini Huracan
The Huracan may be Lamborghini’s entry-level model, but it ushers you into a world of insanely fast vehicles. The current Huracan EVO has a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine that produces up to 631 horsepower, and when combined with an agile, light, mid-engined, all-wheel-drive layout, it can reach 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in little over 10 seconds. People will line up to get behind the wheel of a car with that much power, and that’s exactly what happened.
