Tourists to Get Power-Car Option

Revving Up: High-powered Ferraris may be joining Bali’s hordes of motorbikes and cars.

DENPASAR

Well-heeled tourists will soon be able to splash out on luxury-car rentals to zip around the island in style.

While holidaymakers will not be able to enjoy the cars’ revved-up engines to their maximum in southern parts of Bali, where drivers will likely find themselves in clogged in gridlock, they will be able to experience the power of Ferraris and Maseratis on open roads elsewhere on the island.

A local car dealer is eager to offer the top-end service via travel agents and selected hotels.

However, Irmawan Poedjadi of PT Citra Langgeng Otomotif may hope the plan doesn’t backfire, after he told the media this week that “Bali is a perfect place to enjoy a luxurious ride because the island is undoubtedly beautiful and is free from traffic jams.”

    Clever idea, you don’t rent a Ferrari to drive 200km per hour, because nobody can see you. You rent a Ferrari to drive on Pantai Kuta with a speed of 5km, windows open and music loud, so that all the low budget tourists can see you. Can you imagine what happens when you drive your Ferrari trough Poppies…

    There’s a scam here somwhere…Maybe the extra add-on fees, damage claims (think jet ski Thailand) or just plain ole money laundering, exotic car trade…(think stolen gems) trading hands from Singapore, Dubai and Kuta/

    Yeah, right Bali is just the place for high powered euro meatheads…….I’d call them something else but you wouldn’t publish it. Bring back the BEMO, now that’s a ride!

    Locals already think us whites are rich enough, last thing we need is a several hundred dollar per day rental car shoved in their faces. Before we know it we’ll be paying 100k for a portion of mie goreng!

    No traffic! Ha, that guy might have eaten too many magic mushrooms…
