Jaguar XK8 convertible for rental Nelson, with couple in car side on

You voted, we listened and got TWO new cars for hire!

Over the last few months we’ve been running a poll on which car should we get next and we’ve been really pleased to see so many of you voting. It’s been pretty close with 6 models challenging for the most wanted spots and the lead changing places several times. So what we’ve decided to do….is get two of them!!

RentAClassic proudly introduces our superb supercharged showroom condition Mercedes Benz SLK 230 and a seriously cool big game Jaguar XK8 convertible cat. Based at Christchurch and Nelson respectively, you can read more about them by clicking their links above but we’re going to have so much fun with them…..and we’re sure you are too, if you can get us out of the driving seat that is. The drive down from Auckland where we picked up the Mercedes for instance was mmm, mmm, and it only takes 25 seconds to convert from a hard roof coupe into a Hard Rock Cafe pose-mobile sun drenched, open top roadster. Unusually, we fully exploited that as we came into Wellington…..not that we don’t often pose open top much because we do, but rather that Wellington isn’t often sun drenched in September….or many other times of year come to think of it…..whereas Nelson on the other hand….

So commiserations to those of you plumping for the Porsche Boxster, Fiat x1/9, MGB Roadster, Smart Roadster and Mini convertible that were also popular, but who knows in future……but then again I do like the old style Alfa Spiders……and what about a Fiat 124 Spider……or a lazy Triumph Stag or even a V12 Jaguar XJS…..I mean the customers can’t be right every time can they……..? By the way, a new poll is open here for what we get next…..
