If you could rent an NSX or Beat, which would you pick?

Been toying with the idea of renting an NSX when I go visit friends in Toronto. This was my dream car when they came out, and since they're not making them any more, the chance to drive one is getting smaller every day.

But I was also thinking of tracking down the guy who's selling Beats and see if I can get a drive or ride in one of those.

All of this is hypothetical, but it's fun to think about ...

The NSX would cost around $300 CDN for 24 hours.

I would rather own the beat. But for one day I would pick the nsx.

I would probably go with neither.

Insteresting though....

Makes me wonder about renting a tesla roadster vs. a Ferrari Enzo. If it were possible for either.

MetroMPG -

I *think* I'd go with the Beat.

I know, I'm crazy.

Nsx

The NSX is the pioneer vehicle that first used VTEC in a production vehicle -- and we can see what happened after that! I've always wanted to drive one once to get a feel for it. Yes to rent; No to own.

OTOH, the Beat looks like a great "Fun Car" to take to the track or cruise around on the weekends, so it gets the nod to own.

The real question should be "honda beat vs. smart roadster"
This one is harder for me because they both have similar engines and size.
