  • J. Severini
    "This was, hands down, the most exquisite part of my 3 months in South Africa despite having so many incredible adventures. Ross and the team have curated an amazing fleet with styles and colors to fit everyone's dream. They are warm, compassionate, and have a zest for what they do, which is palpable. The feeling of having a thrusty black cobra with burgundy interior past the vineyards of Stellenbosch, visiting quaint cafes and vintage car museums amidst the hills of Franschhoek Pass, and finishing up long the winding Cape roads through Chapman's Peak at sunset was something I'll take with me forever. If you have a love for exotic cars and are anywhere near Cape Town, this is an absolute must!"

Thank you for what you guys are doing to the community in order to take a little pressure off from stressing over a matric ball car. Thank you so much to the cutest driver ever. Randy was astonished. The driver probably thought this girl is super crazy. But really you guys was totally AWESOME. Thank you thank you so much. May God bless you and take you from strength to strength. May your business grow. God Bless"
