Wow, this looks interesting:

I wonder what the share plan costs are; probably still out of the reach of a normal person. A neat idea though.

Ah, I found the prices. $22,500 for a 1/10th share of a Lambo Murcielago. That's 4 weeks of drive time per year. Ouch.

They have been doing that for awhile now. Fractional ownership. The time shares of the car world. Good for certain people but expensive for what you get I have heard. It would be kind of cool to drive many different cars though, and the lack of any responsibility of maintenance would be nice. Wonder how many bald tires they have to replace?

plus maintenance costs no doubt?

That price is pretty good actually, out of our range, but not too far. Cheaper than what quite a few people spend for less time on the track each season.

Take a look at the Curvy Road Web Page they are an Exotic Car Share company.

how does a plymouth prowler get categorized as an "exotic car". doesnt a car have to be valued over $200k to be categorized as an "exotic"? plus, do they even make plymouth's anymore???

Why would you pay $1,400 to drive a $6,000 Alfa around for a week?
