LAS VEGAS -- In Vegas, anyone can rent a basic compact car ($17.96 a day, plus taxes, at Thrifty), but here in the capital of flash and glitz, something a little sportier might be in order. On Swenson Avenue, not far from McCarran International Airport, you can find RAV (Rent-a-Vette), which specializes in exotic automobiles. A Lamborghini Gallardo or a Ferrari 360 Spider will set you back $1,495 a day. A Bentley Continental GT goes for $995 and a Corvette convertible (very popular) for $295.
