South Florida’s luxury car rental market is revving up as real estate agents give tourists a spin around the region’s priciest penthouses on $400,000 wheels, Hispanic Business reported.

Broker Patricia Delinois picked up client Robert Kiger in a black Rolls-Royce Phantom to show him multimillion-dollar properties on Fisher Island.

“It was fanastic,” Kiger told the magazine. “I felt like a king.”

“What we are trying to create is a fun, trendy, different experience that they will only get in Miami,” said Delinois, broker-owner of Century 21 Premier Elite Realty.

Fancy cars add to the opulent ambience, and distinguish Miami from other world cities, John Temerian, co-owner and president of Lou La Vie, a luxury car rental agency in Miami, told the magazine.

“You can’t drive a Ferrari convertible through the streets of Brazil,” Temerian said. “So people are coming here to enjoy themselves. And how synonymous is a convertible with Miami Beach?”

Leonardo DiCaprio was seen zipping around in Bentley on a recent trip, while rapper T.I. opted for an Escalade. Jamie Foxx regularly sports a red Ferrari when he visits Miami while a few months ago, a Saudi prince asked for 200 Escalades for his family and friends when they landed on a private Boeing 747. Partnering together, local businesses were able to assemble 70. [Hispanic Business]Emily Schmall
