MOST RED-BLOODED petrol heads will have seen the tight, sinuous roads that wind their way through the Italian countryside and pondered what it would be like to drive through them at a highly illegal rate of knots.

Some may have even been fortunate enough to visit Italy themselves, only to discover that the fanciest set of wheels available at the airport rental counter is a Fiat Punto. Hardly the type of vehicle to do such roads justice.

However, rental car company Hertz has heard the plaintive cry of the car-loving tourist and announced that a brace of Lotus Elise SCs has been added to its Italian fleet.

Hertz has offered the Corvette ZHZ and Shelby Mustang GT-H in the United States for a while now, but this is the first time such a sports car has been offered for rent in Europe by the company.

They won't come cheaply, but the Hertz Elise SCs would arguably be the most convenient option for renting a proper sportscar to explore the country's autostradas and B-roads with.

The only problem now is figuring out how to fit a fortnight's worth of luggage into one.
