Nsx so I could finally drive one, then take it back to the rental station with bald tires.... but timeslips. It was my dreamcar till i found out it had a meager n/a v6 in it, that needed some major mods to get it up to speed with all the hype. I'd go with smart roadster, safer and a turbo 3cyl diesel

alot of people have driven fast cars and can tell you how fast they were, and how hard it was to stay going the speed limit, but how many people do you know who have rented or driven a Beat?

Still the Beat. I was so depressed when I saw this car in the early pages of the USA car mags (the pages where you see concept cars and foreign cars that will never reach our shores). To me, the Beat was like a production "Honda" 550 Spyder, which was the car I lusted afer in the 1980's :



The Beck 550 kits could do 0-60 in 4.7 seconds with a Porsche 2 liter engine and their super light 1200 pounds. Who needs the NSX when I have power to weight ratio?

And look, it's pre-Pokemon Pikachu Yellow (I already know about the Pikachu-Beetle, the Beat would be cooler)!!!

I voted NSX. I've always wanted one of those. I think they are one of the most beautiful cars ever made.

Sadly, the Friday rental fee is $100 more than Mon-Thu rental.
