$599 for an Exotic-Car Tour ($995 Value)
The exotic-car tour begins with a meet and greet, in which drivers enjoy a continental breakfast during a briefing of the day’s itinerary and activities. After breakfast, their patience is rewarded with keys to Club Sportiva’s fleet of exotic machines, which may include a Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Lotus Elise, Audi R8, Aston Martin DB9, and Porsche Cayman S. The group of six drivers rotates between supercars as they tear through 120 miles of scenic Bay Area roads. Each driver gets about 20–30 minutes in each car, zooming down the scenic pavement strips of Skyline Boulevard and Highway 1. Drivers refuel their gastronomic tanks with a complimentary lunch at Alice’s Restaurant in Woodside. Tours, which must take place before April, 30, 2013, must be scheduled before January 31, 2013.
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.
