Rent The ‘Aviato’ Ford Escape From HBO’s ‘Silicon Valley’

If you ever find yourself in need of a rental car around the San Francisco area, and you happen to be a diehard fan of the HBO series Silicon Valley, you now have the option of renting Erlich Bachman’s awesome, graphic-laden “Aviato” Ford Escape.

The Ford Escape in question – a 2006 model-year example covered head-to-toe by a green and yellow “Aviato” theme – is rentable for the low, low price of just $49 per day, reportsĀ Car and Driver. It’s available through peer-to-peer carsharing service Turo, and it’s just about the most surefire way of communicating your Silicon Valley fandom short of putting the Pied Piper crew’s “tip-to-tip” algorithm into practice.

Apart from belonging to Silicon Valley self-starter Erlich Bachman, the 2006 “Aviato” Ford Escape is memorable in other ways, too. For instance, it has the hybrid powertrain – an option launched for the 2005 model year, which garnered the model the North American Truck of the Year award that same year. According to Turo, the storied Ford Escape also offers “leather seats that cradle your buttocks like the firm grasp of a loving mother,” and has no mileage limit, “because if you are driving a piece of Silicon Valley history, you know no limits.”
