How to buy a $200,000 car rental: Start with a $50,000 deposit
By Ryan GomesRead moreA car rental company in Michigan is selling the world’s most expensive car for the lowest possible price, offering a three-bedroom rental with a base price of just over $200 per month, according to a listing posted by car rental website Rentr.com.
The listing for a $150,000 Honda Accord was posted online Monday morning.
The car has a base pricing of $55,000, the lowest of any car on the site.
Rentr, which is owned by a group of former tech executives, said the car is a brand new Honda Accord with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, making it the lowest-priced car on Rentr in the U.S.
The car, which has been listed for months, is one of three offered by the company.
The other two are two luxury cars, a $90,000 Lexus LS400 and a $75,000 Porsche 911 Turbo.
Rentr also lists a $130,000 BMW 5 Series, a Lexus ES 300, a Mercedes-Benz CLS300, a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a Volkswagen Golf GTI.
The company said it is not offering the cars for resale.
Rental car companies in the United States, Europe and Canada are also selling the vehicles, and some are charging significantly more than the listed prices.
The price of a one-way car rental from the United Kingdom to New York City is $1,750 per day, while a one hour trip from London to Los Angeles costs $1.8 million.
Renters in Australia and Germany are paying $1 million per day for the same type of car, according the New York Post.
Renting cars in the Netherlands and Switzerland are cheaper than renting them in the US, where the average rental cost is around $5,000.
