Do you need a sweet ride as you contemplate the state of your incubator? Are you just an amazing person who absolutely needs to tout your success at every literal turn?

Car-sharing marketplace Turo has exactly what you need with a listing for Erlich Bachman’s stunning Ford Escape Aviato 2006.

Some of you already recognize the above name as the character from HBO’s hit show “Silicon Valley.”

Bachman would be the figure played by comedian T.J. Miller and Aviato would be the company he so successfully launched – the name for which has a special pronunciation that only Miller can master.

The above link highlights the latest post on Turo – a website that works like Airbnb, but instead of homes and apartments, you get to share the wonder that is your automobile.

Even if you don’t care to rent the Aviato ride, which is a crying shame, then you still have to stop by the post to read its hilarious and boastful tone.

The post reads: “Before Turo, the only way to get this close to a vehicle of such storied history was – well, there wasn’t one. But Bachman has generously agreed to release the beast from the driveway of his game-changing incubator, and let the masses experience the incomparable luxury and pure-adrenaline thrill that is driving a car emblazoned with the word ‘Aviato.’”

So, what do you get for $49 per day?

According to the post, you get a car tricked out the way you see it on the show. It’s an amazing way to satisfy the inner geek while also infusing some jealousy in your friends back home.

There is free pick-up for this San Francisco-area car from SFO and drop off is also included. And, the best part, is you get a, “6 CD Navigation GPS radio with 4" display and ergonomic joystick-button selector that will make you feel like a god among men.”

Compact discs, for those who may have forgotten, were those widely used discs that contained music on them. People back in 2006 enjoyed them after flipping through their Case Logic holders.

Now be careful, because smoking any substance in the car will cost you dearly in the form of a $250 fine, but you don’t plan on smoking anyway, because you have to be sharp for that meeting with investors that is about to go off splendidly – all because you decided to roll up in style in the car that will have everyone muttering silently in astonishment, “Aviato.”
