As Father’s Day sneaks up on us once again, you may be lamenting just how hard it is to shop for dads. While it’s perfectly practical to give him a nose-hair trimmer and we’re sure he’ll love the card you make an hour before you see him, you still have the chance to get him something unique and memorable.

We’ve put together a gift guide to some of the most fun, dad-worthy cars for rent on Turo. Taking the keys to one of these beauties and hitting the road is sure to be at least as thrilling as another necktie. And maybe if you’re lucky, he’ll be looking for a co-pilot.*

James’ Ferrari 360

Fact: Dads dig Ferraris. Old dads, young dads, bombastic dads, demure dads — all dads secretly dream of showboating around the streets in a flashy, throaty Ferrari. Because Ferraris.
