James Bond be damned. Just because you don’t have an international spy car budget doesn’t mean you can’t live the high life (okay, for a few days). Book an Aston Martin, Ferrari, or classic Jaguar as your sweet ride on your next trip. Just don’t let it get blown up.
License to Drive
Design a fantasy road trip through the Boot, slumming at luxury properties each night, with Red Travel Italia’s Ferrari Tours. Talk about a Honey Ryder: Your personal assistant will lead or discreetly follow you (in his own Alfa) with your luggage.
From England with Love
Fancy a traipse through Britain? Classic Touring has a fleet of vintage cars — Jaguar roadsters, Rolls Royces, Bentleys — to rent while you tour. And there will be no Q nagging: After a quick lesson, you’re left blissfully alone to explore the countryside.
Drive Another Day
Western Road Adventures puts you behind the wheels of a different performance car every day (Ferrari, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford GT) of your five-day journey through the windy, beautiful Colorado canyons. Jinx: In addition to sweet accommodations, you get meals, spa, ATVs, horseback riding, and mountain bikes.
Quantum of Solace
Fairmont Miramar Santa Monica’s Two Keys, One Destination package gives you a choice of a Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3 Series, or Lexus ES 350 to drive when you stay. You’ll have a Mary Goodnight in 32 historic bungalows built between the 1920s and 1940s in private tropical gardens.
A View to a Thrill
Book the Room & Vroom at the Waikiki Parc Hotel and you get a Lotus Elise or Exige to tear around the island. The Pussy Galore is up to you.
