Finally, here's a way to enjoy supercars in Singapore without owning them outright -- read, paying an arm and a leg.
EuroSports Global, which is listed on the Singapore Exchange, has launched a scheme for fractional use of Ferraris, Porsches, even the Rolls Royce and Lamborghini.
So for $12,000, you could get to drive any of these cars within a year.
For $24,000, you could do so over two years. For $36,000, it's three years.
Consider a $12,000 membership which comes with 20,000 points. EuroSports Global's executive chairman & CEO, Melvin Goh, gave NextInsight some idea of what the membership entitles one to:
A member who fancies a Porsche 911 could have the use of the car from 9 am to 11 pm in a day.
He would have 33 days in a year to use the car before exhausting his 20,000 points.
If he is instead keen on a variety of supercars, the number of 12-hour periods he could have the use of them, by way of example, are:
2X: Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder;
5X: Porsche 911;
2X: McLaren MP4-12C;
2X: Ferrari California;
2X: Lamborghini Huracan
The cars are for driving in Singapore only.
EuroSports launched the club recently with six supercars, and has attracted about 30 members, said Mr Goh. After the 150-member mark is reached, EuroSports will add a supercar to the fleet for every increase of 20-30 members. EuroSports will limit its membership to 500 people.
Members can book the cars of their dreams three months in advance -- but you can imagine that it will be a challenge to be successful in booking cars for holiday seasons such as Christmas and Chinese New Year.
