Eduardo Saverin may have been duped out of Facebook, but he’s not letting the airport car rental game get away from him.

The Facebook co-founder and Brazilian billionaire makes his second investment of the month in airport transportation today, backing Audi-only rental car service Silvercar alongside a list of investors including Velos Partners (where Saverin serves as Chairman), Austin Ventures, and CrunchFund.

If the nearly $90 bucks a day for a silver Audi A4 isn’t in the budget, Saverin aims to provide the rest of us with a less exclusive option in the form of FlightCar, a peer-to-peer car rental marketplace currently available at airports in San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles.

Saverin joined major players First Round, General Catalyst, and Softbank to finance FlightCar’s $13.5 million Series A less than two weeks ago.

Car rental isn’t the only form of transportation that Saverin sees promise in – Saverin’s Velos Partners has also invested twice in private air travel membership service Surf Air.

Saverin’s latest investment marks his fifth this year and third alongside most frequent co-investor CrunchFund.
