ECO Rent a Car has added the classy Audi R8 V10 Plus supercar to its fleet of exotic rental cars. The company will offer the supercar for self-driving, photo/video shoots and appearances.
ECO Rent a Car boasts a fleet of 2500 vehicles and caters 20,000 passengers every day, across 79 cities in India.
