    DJ F430 Coupe UK Self Drive possibility

    I'm due to have my DJ 430 finished mid august and i am toying with the idea of using the car in a new business venture, daily rate self hire drive within the UK, wanted a few views on if there would be any interest in this type of project considering hiring a real f430 for a day can cost an arm and a leg just as buying a real one is. I've already done some homework on insurance quotes for such a venture and the pros and cons of doing so, lets have your thoughts. Is there a niche market here that no one has tapped or has it been done before and failed .......... ??

    Please note i'm not advertising in anyway here, just looking for peoples thought on it

    That can be profitable but also very risky, anyone that rents that car is gonna be driving it wild

    Yeah there are always going to be idiots in every walk of life, i might be one of them for thinking about renting it out , i do think though that people concidering buying one may want to actually see what its like to live with with a long test drive ( 24HRS )

    Are you for real?

    Next time you pass a taxi queue after chucking out time at the pub, look at the guy there picking his nose in worn out jeans and the skanky girl eating chips that he's coming on to.

    Now give him the keys to the car you've spent hours putting together.

    Fastest car I've ever driven was a Hertz car rental... I even managed to break a Hummer over the course of a weekend (unintentionally - I didn't realise that sleeping policemen were too much for it)
