How to drive like a billionaire
Supercar Life offers clients the chance to drive supercars on the track.
Today and tomorrow, some lucky people are driving a set of supercars, including a Ferrari F430, a Lamborghini Gallardo, and a Porsche Turbo 997, around the Auto Club Speedway track in Fontana, Calif. To get this lucky, all you have to do is pony up $4,990 to Supercar Life, a company with a fleet of very fast cars that it uses to host track events. The company provides professional instruction to the drivers, taking the morning of the event day to show them how to drive on the track. During the afternoon, the clients take the wheel.
For people who want to pilot some very expensive cars, and don't mind being confined to public roads, there's Club Sportiva, a company that offers timeshares on a garage full of cars. Club Sportiva offers memberships beginning at $3,500, for 12 days a year, and a garage that includes a Maserati Quattroporte, Lotus Elise, and a Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG.
