What You'll Get
The car lover in your life can finally live out their octane-drenched dreams with today’s side deal from Club Sportiva. For $450, you’ll get an entire day’s rental of the Audi R8, the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, the Maserati Spyder, or the Nissan GTR (depending on the day, values on this deal range from $498 to $1,548). Much like the actors selected to play James Bond, drivers must be at least 30 years old and provide their own valid major credit card, full extendable insurance coverage, and a driving record free of DUIs and other significant moving violations.
Your 24 hours of sleek automotive joy-riding includes 100 miles of open road, after which Club Sportiva's standard mileage rates apply (rates depend on which car you drive, contact Club Sportiva for details), so you might want to plan your route and cruising music mix in advance. If you're feeling the familicious, invite along everyone from your cool-deprived dad to your clunker-commuting cousin and give them all a turn in the driver's seat (as long as they fulfill the restrictions). On the way back to Club Sportiva, don't forget to plant your awe-inspiring ride in the driveways of bosses, exes, and high-school reunions, then speed off into the sunset right after their eyes turn an envious green.
Driver will need to provide a valid major credit card. Club Sportiva will run a pre-authorization/hold of $5000. Your card will not be charged if car is returned undamaged.

About Club Sportiva
For all but a privileged few, driving a Ferrari or Lamborghini is just a dream—no more attainable than throwing a perfect game or going to space with your dog. This didn't sit well with the crew at Club Sportiva, which is why they decided to apply the timeshare concept to exotic cars. Now, club members and average joes can take the wheel of fine autos once reserved for celebrities and society’s elite.
Available for luxury rental or timeshare membership, Club Sportiva’s fleet includes some of the fastest and rarest cars on the planet, from the 400 horsepower of the Porsche 911 Carrera S 991 to the scissor doors of the Lamborghini Murcielago. Members are also privy to even more exclusive wheels, such as the Ferrari F430 F1, which can launch from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds thanks to 490 horsepower under its hood. In addition to the Sprints, Club Sportiva also hosts exotic car tours, during which drivers can sample the speed of their favorite supercars, feel the rush of the road, and hear the whistle of the wind through their teeth.
