Because everyone needs a 575-horsepower sports car on vacation.
Renting a car usually leaves you with a few dozen limited, boring options. Here’s not to say that the Chevy Malibu is the worst car in the world, but we’d rather much have something that has two doors, more than 500 horsepower (372 kilowatts), and the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just about 3.5 seconds.
Thankfully, Jaguar has partnered with Enterprise to give renters the opportunity to spend a few days with the F-Type SVR sports car. A total of 15 markets around the country will be offered the exclusive sports car, including Atlanta, Orlando, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Minnesota, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Naples, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Seattle, Phoenix, North Carolina, Las Vegas, and Nashville.

The F-Type SVR joins just a handful of other available exotic rentals from the agency, including cars like the Aston Martin Rapide S, Audi R8, BMW i8, Lamborghini Huracan, and Ferrari California, among others. The SVR is the second most powerful vehicle the rental agency offers, just behind the 602-hp (448-kW) Huracan, and can be had either as a coupe or convertible.
"We're delighted to have the F-TYPE SVR included in the Enterprise Exotic Car Collection," said Kim McCullough, vice president of marketing, Jaguar Land Rover North America. "As an aspirational product and the halo performance vehicle for the Jaguar brand, this partnership means even more people will have the opportunity to experience thrilling driving dynamics and the best of British design."
In its 12-year run, Enterprise’s Exotic Car Collection has proved to be a success. More than 50 locations in cities throughout the U.S. offer exotic rentals, with a plan to expand even more into the states and Canada. Depending on where you book it, and a few other factors like length of rental, and age of driver, the sports car can be had for around $250 per day.
Car enthusiasts rejoice – the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the highly sought-after Jaguar F-TYPE SVR has just been made easier thanks to an exclusive partnership between Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Jaguar. Specifically, in select locations throughout the U.S., the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is now available for rent through the Exotic Car Collection by Enterprise.
As a product of the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, the F-TYPE SVR is a low volume performance halo for the Jaguar brand. Enterprise will now carry more than 20 of these vehicles and is the only car rental brand to offer this specific model to renters.
“The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is one of the most sought-after high-end vehicles available today, and it’s a thrill for us to add these cars to our fleet and make it easier for drivers to experience them firsthand,” said Will Withington, corporate vice president, Enterprise Holdings. “We pride ourselves on providing our customers with access to one of the largest collections of exotic and premium vehicles on the planet, and our consistent growth continues to reinforce strong demand for these luxury rentals.”
The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR will be added to the Exotic Car Collection fleet at locations in the following markets: Atlanta, Orlando, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Minnesota, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Naples, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Seattle, Phoenix, North Carolina, Las Vegas and Nashville.

Developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division to be lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful, while remaining useable day to day, the F-TYPE SVR is positioned at the top of the F-TYPE range as Jaguar’s ultimate performance vehicle. Featuring a range of performance enhancements to the aerodynamics, suspension and powertrain, the SVR is the fastest F-TYPE ever with 0-60mph acceleration in as little as 3.5 seconds and a top speed of up to 200mph for the coupe.
