"The driving experience, the sound of it...the feel of it..."
Scott Ellsworth is sharing his love for exotic cars with those who can't afford to buy one.
Ellsworth said, “When you are out there it is a lot of fun the way these cars handle and drive is just different from everything else.”
He just opened an exotic car rental company with Luxury Motors of Rochester. For $500 a day and a valid, clean driver’s license you can tool around in a Ferrari.
Ellsworth said, "This vehicle for example to buy new is a quarter of a million dollars, so for folks who are really into cool cars but think the hassles of ownership, the maintenance and where to get it fixed and store it and how many days a year can I drive it, ownership a hassle but boy I would love to drive one for a day a couple days or week."
So far Scott's clients have rented the Ferrari F-430 for a wedding, birthday gift, a corporate reward and just a day of driving around the Finger Lakes and up to Toronto.
"My interest is simple I am really into these cars and my hope is to share this love and passion of these vehicles with other folks," said Ellsworth.
There's also a Range Rover Sport available to rent and soon, Scott hopes to add more to his fleet of sweet rides along with a rent option similar to a time share for a condo or home, making it more affordable to cruise the open road in an exotic car.
Ellsworth said, "More, fancy cool cars with names you'd recognize like Lamborghini, Aston Martin and there is no shortage of exotic vehicles that you just don't see every day in Rochester."
