A BMW 3 series has been leased for $80,000 in a weekly rental car deal in Paris.

The 3 Series was the first in the range to be given a car rental discount, with the new BMW X3 being the first model to be offered in a monthly rental deal.

A spokesman for Paris car rental company Vauxhall told The Telegraph the BMW X2 was the car chosen for the weekly rental deal in November.

The BMW X5 is also offered for the same price in a fortnight, while the X3 and X5 XS are available for three-month rental.

The BMW X1, the most expensive BMW in the world, is priced at $105,900.

The car was given a free-ride on the daily rental deal for six months, which includes the cost of the rental.
