Hype launches a luxury car rental app. Hire a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 458 or Rolls-Royce Ghost


Hype luxury car rental service has launched its own mobile app. So now you can rent a car through the app for as long as you need. Well, it’s Uber, isn’t it? Yes, but here you can choose from a wide range of cars, from a Toyota Fortuner to a Ferrari 458 Italia. You can choose to be driven or drive these cars yourself. Well, we don’t think Uber lets you drive their cars and we’re pretty sure they don’t have Ferraris or Lamborghinis.

Volvo V40, Mercedes-Benz GLA, BMW 320 and Toyota Fortuner are some of the more economical options on offer. For example, the 320d will cost you Rs 10,560 for 24 hours. You will also need to provide a refundable deposit of Rs 50,000 in advance. The first 150 km are free and each km after that costs Rs 21. As you move up the ranks you can find everything from Mercedes and BMW to Audi and if you prefer a bit of flair and rarity there is also a Maserati Ghibli.

Do you have even deeper pockets? There is the Rolls-Royce Ghost, which costs Rs 81,000 for 24 hours. If opulence isn’t your cup of tea and you’re right in front of you, we suggest the Lamborghini Gallardo or the Ferrari 458. These supercars are also available with a driver, but, honestly, we don’t get it. Who in their right mind wants to be driven in a Lamborghini Gallardo? The trunk space is appalling, the ride quality will be breathtaking and to be fair it will be loud with the ten cylinders ringing behind your ears.

Again, we suggest you drop the driver. Use the passenger seat for luggage, drive that damn vehicle for a day and savor every moment. By the way, the bull costs Rs 1.5 lakh for a day with a deposit of Rs 5 lakh. But hey, on the other hand, the first 150 km are free but you have to pay Rs 800 for each additional km you go.

Good news if you are reading this you can afford it and you live in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Goa, Mumbai, Delhi or Chandigarh. Hype will offer its services in these cities initially, but it plans to expand to other metropolitan cities in the coming months. Bad news if you don’t qualify, but you’re not alone. Just like us, you can still look at these cars and dream.
