Drive an exotic car about once or twice a month

I just stumbled onto this website that lets you rent out a collection of exotic cars, for around the price range of my monthly M3 payment.

Of course I believe you are limited to between 1000 - 4000 miles per year (all cars you drive) "FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP" its like a timeshare on exotic cars!

For all you rich guys afraid of commitment of an exotic car.. They even detail your daily driver when you take their car!

Check it out! http://www.xautx.com/club_programs.html

I think my friend knows the guy that owns this. He tried this before in the area but it didn't work out too well. I think now he's trying to relaunch it. $14,000 for all the joys of a $300,000 car with none of the drawbacks is a win-win. It's still a lot of money though. Need to figure out a way to turn it into a business expense.

hmm so either pretend to be a baller and rent these cars or spend $1300 or even $2200/month to actually be a baller and own a nice car... IMO I'd rather just buy the car.

A 4 year loan on 100k dollars works itself out to essentially the same price as the aficionado package. So BUY an 05 gallardo? or rent a 2010?

True you don't have to pay for maintenance costs with this program, but from what I hear lambo maintenance isn't that bad...Honestly I think the site is a good idea (if it were cheaper). But $2200 a month to rent a car is just absurd
