Some of the cars I've driven within the past few years:
Of course, all but one are Turo rentals.🙂

Hey, Trevor, I guess living in a big city has its advantages. I just recently rented a Vanderhall Venice and added 2 photos to the mix, above. The fastest so far was the 2019 McLaren 570S, followed by the 2020 Porsche 911 4S Cabriolet, the 2014 Corvette. The others were all quick but the Vanderhall  was the most "raw" - lots of noises, kindof like a cross between a motocycle and a kit car - lots of fun!

Yes, 0-60 MPH is about 4.5 seconds for the Vanderhall, which is close to the BMW i8 at about 4.2 seconds. The best sound from the Vanderhall is what is probably the turbocharger's waste gate. It's like hearing a big rig's air brake at almost the same sound level. You really can't wear a baseball cap; it would fly away at highway speeds, so I bought a World War I open cockpit plane cap that includes a chin strap. Bystanders must've thought I was some former military pilot who longed for the old days. 🙂

Sounds insane!  I love cars like that, takes me back to the custom car days where you built crazy machines (see pic below of my old Vauxhall PA Cresta with Jaguar V12 under the hood)

The Pilot's hat sounds like a cool option to keep the bugs out of your eyes 🙂

Nice! That looks a bit like a 1957 Chevrolet. There are many here in the US with big engines in them.

There is a mechanic on youtube who is installing a Jaguar V12 engine in a 1966 Chevelle Malibu.
Engine Reveal! See what crazy engine the CAR WIZARD has selected to put in this '66 Chevelle Malibu - YouTube

I watch some of his videos. He is a very good mechanic.

I always loved the 55 Chevy in Two Lane Blacktop and this was the closest I could get to one.
Wow!  a V12 in a Malibu....snug fit as the V12 is a hefty engine in any engine bay at the best of times
