Las Vegas, Nevada is the only place that I know of where you can rent new Vettes.

The only number I have seen so far was $200 per day, $900 per week.

Prom? How old are you?

For around here, a C5 vert is $279.00 USD a day and $1,674.00 USD a week. Most are also autos. For a MN6, you'll probably pay more because people tend to fry the clutches on those things.

Bust most car rental places won't rent to anyone under 21, and only under 25 with a huge security deposit.

Here in Lauderdale Corvette rentals run around $300+ per day with $2500 to 10K security deposit (depending on financial clout of renter).
This is for 100 miles. ($.75 each extra mile) Taxes and surcharges apply.

I'm in the (film and music) entertainment business. If we do any "advertainment" peices with Corvette (as we're being asked to), I'll make sure I get that sample run. Corvette and Cadlillac are promotion-happy right now, as they should be.

Right now we're working with Mercedes and they are generous with this type of thing, even to the general public.

See my posting on this titled:

"C6 - Free Test Run - $1500 Discount Coupon?"

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't already have a Z51 C6 Coupe sitting on there lot with a big "RENT ME" sign on the windsheld. There's a couple of places on Las Vegas Blvd. where you can rent them. But be prepaired to pay major big bucks.
