Corvette Convertible

This classic American sports car may have suffered through a few years of ignominy (ahem, the entire ’80s and ’90s), but today’s Vette is roaring back and earning rave reviews. Credit goes partly to the six-liter V8 that pumps more than 400 horsepower through the vehicle’s relatively light frame. There’s also the design. With its low-slung grill and wide hips, the sixth-generation Corvette is at once a trip down memory lane—where the legendary Sting Ray is still considered by many to be the ultimate Corvette—and a step into the future.

Rent It: Avis has offered the Corvette as a “Cool Car” since 2008. The company has also added the Camaro SS—another American legend recently resurrected by Chevrolet. Rent either for approximately $220 per day, including taxes.
