Renting a Sports Car in NYC

mustangMy wife and I were visiting New York from England and I am a huge gearhead.  After weighing my options, I figured what better way to feed my obsession than to rent a sports car and visit the Orange County Choppers in Newburgh, NY.  I have been a huge fan of the show for a few years and our visit there did not disappoint.  Our trip started (without compass!) out on the right foot when we decided to rent a Ford Mustang from AAMCAR Car Rental on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  This car rental was not like your typical place. It was a small, privately owned business and I was able to speak to a knowledgeable, “adult” staff who actually knew a few things about cars and bikes too!  The Mustang we rented was wonderful.  It was silver with racing stripes and let’s just say I kept it under 60 MPH the whole time. Do you sense sarcasm in my voice?  Anyway, the Orange County Choppers were amazing.  It’s a shame I didn’t get to see any members of the actual cast out there.  I did, however, get to buy a small souvenir and we made our way back to Manhattan.  The option to drop the vehicle off up until 11:30 pm at night was really helpful.  It allowed us to drive around NY and then not have to look for a parking spot or garage.  What a great day we had!  I wonder if my wife feels the same way. (HAHAHA sorry honey).

Planning a trip to New York City but worried that a rental car won’t be big enough for you and your travel mates? Why not look into an SUV rental? SUVs offer plenty of space, (both for cargo and travellers) but are a more stylish alternative to trucks and mini-vans.

Advantages of Driving an SUV

SUV New York car rentals are known for providing safety to its occupants during accidents because of their weight and height. Although it has been rumoured that larger SUV’s pose a threat to smaller vehicles, this was discarded in a June 1998 survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The survey stated that SUV’s perform the same as a full-sized car in the case of a collision and that they do not overpower smaller vehicles. Even though this test proved that SUVs were safe, companies took an extra initiative to build even better vehicles. European companies have begun to develop new technology that utilizes an electronic stability control system. This system involves sensors what would detect when your SUV New York car rental begins to lose traction and would automatically apply brakes to the appropriate wheel. These systems have been proven to help prevent vehicles from tipping or skidding when pared with safe driving techniques.

Sine SUV’s are larger than most normal sized vehicles they are built heavier than other vehicles, which will work to your benefit in the case of an accident. Plus SUVs are better equipped for cargo and are great for off-roading adventures. Many companies like Toyota, Lexus and Ford are now beginning to come out with the “Cross-Over” vehicle: a vehicle that mixes both the features of an SUV with that of a full-sized car to create an even safer, more fuel efficient ride. These “Cross-Overs” have unit body construction and are easier to manage than the bigger, bulkier SUVs.
