Why pay for Netflix when you can subscribe to drive a Lamborghini?
It may make you happy to learn that the Ferrari 458 Italia you saw last week, which was made more memorable when the driver cut you off in traffic, wasn’t actually the jerk’s car. But don’t get too happy, chances are he did somehow make it if he’s driving that Italian stallion. Nevertheless, the driver was probably a member of an exotic car club. Most gearheads don't even know about this, which is a damn shame because there is a lot of fun to be had by joining.
Even someone with the entire hypercar trinity lineup gets the urge to drive something different from time to time. This is where an exotic car club comes in handy. Instead of buying a collection of supercars and having to maintain them, worry about retaining the car’s value, and replace expensive parts on the car, the car club does it all for you. All that you have to do is subscribe to the service. When a driver gets bored of that they just go back and exchange the supercar for another. It’s the perfect subscription that even Netflix can’t match. There are a large number of these companies too, which is good news because one can find a variety of subscription services to suit tastes, needs, and budgets.
As previously stated, the guy who cut you off in the Ferrari 458 still had to have enough cash to get behind the wheel, because even the most basic subscriptions run at $670 per month. For that, you get to put 700 miles on a Lamborghini Huracan, a Ferrari 458, a Mercedes SLR McLaren, and much more. Even, better, gasoline is included and you can either pick up the car or have it delivered to you in case you want to impress the cute waitress by peeling off in a McLaren 570S. For those who want to choose supercars like they do for a walk-in closet full of clothes, packages can run as high as $10,000 per month, but for that you can consider their stash as your personal garage.
Okay so maybe paying a car club a yearly salary of $120,000 isn’t feasible, but that doesn’t mean you cant take advantage of some more basic services. Gotham Dream Cars is a company that offers a getaway package that any true gearhead should consider taking as a vacation. You can fly to Mexico for spring break to contract an STD and get liver failure in your 40s, or you can spend $895 for a full day of driving six supercars of your choice. For the average petrol-headed Joe, this is the best way to experience cars that are otherwise out of reach. If ride share companies and self-driving cars make car ownership obsolete, we say at least let us subscribe to services like these so we can keep our beautiful cars.
