Supercar-sharing clubs may be largely popular in other parts of the world like Europe, but such an offering has been unheard of in Singapore - until now. Petrol heads can now rejoice with the unveiling of Ultimate Drive, the only supercar sharing club available in our island-state. Set up by EuroSports Global, the Ultimate Drive will consist of two main programmes – the Ultimate Drive Club, an exclusive fee-based club membership; and the Ultimate Drive Experience, for short-term rental of supercars.
With the launch, the exciting fleet will for now consist of six cars, namely the Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 and Gallardo Spyder, Ferrari California, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Porsche 911 and McLaren MP4-12c. In the next few years, EuroSports plans to expand its existing partnerships to 15 marques as the membership base grows.
For members of the Ultimate Drive Club, a choice between one and three years of membership will be offered, granting them points for which to redeem from drives. The Ultimate Drive Experience, however, works differently with an aim to attract short-term rentals for locals and tourists alike, or for use over special occasions. EuroSports Global also has plans to bring the Ultimate Drive brand and concept beyond Singapore to meet the rising demand for luxury lifestyle choices.
"Owning a car in Singapore is a big commitment because of the tax structure and the COE requirement. Many people desire to drive supercars, to feel the thrill of the engine’s horsepower, but they may not be able afford one. UD Club will enable them to fulfil their dream without the financial strain," shares Melvin Goh, executive chairman and CEO of EuroSports Global. "Yet another benefit for members is that they are not confined to driving the same supercar but can choose to redeem their purchased points for any of the cars in our fleet."
Car enthusiasts, time to burn the asphalt.
