Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive a million-dollar car? Thought about flying down the freeway or cruising Main Street in a vehicle that turns heads as it passes? That experience is available in most major cities — at a price, of course.

Rental rates vary by model and location, but for a special occasion, date, business meeting, or just fun with friends, you can drive a rare, exotic car. You might have a purely practical reason for renting a unique vehicle for a few days — a camping or ski trip when you need extra space and four-wheel drive, for example. But practicality aside, a flashy convertible would add a thrill to the drive across the Seven Mile Bridge in the Florida Keys or a trip up the California coast on Highway One

"Our typical luxury car renters range from celebrities and executives to ordinary individuals traveling alone, with family, or a partner," Matthew Sanchez, sales executive at Prestige Luxury Rentals in Atlanta, told Travel + Leisure.  "Our vehicles rent for special events, occasions, productions, and weekend getaways. We have other clients who are looking to experience a brand new top of the line vehicle." 

If you'd love to try out some new wheels or turn a road trip into a special occasion, check out these vehicles available for rent in the U.S.
