New company aims to make supercar clubs affordable

The idea of pooling resources to get access to a wide range of the most exotic four-wheeled machinery available isn't new, though it is still rather exclusive. Groups like P1 International in the UK and The Supercar Club in Australia have built the genre over the past few years, while newcomers like RS Academy have helped expand it.

But now a new player has entered the field, and they're playing by a different set of rules. Gone are the tens of thousands of dollars in annual dues and per-use fees. Instead, Supercar Sensation brings a handful of supercars to a designated site, the drivers meet up and drive them around for 1-4 hours, depending on the package they buy, and drive up to three of the cars in a single day. All for a single flat fee.

Starting at $199 for a 'one hour test drive' as the folks at Sensation call it, the driver gets a a shot behind the wheel of three supercars, one from each of the following groups: 1) Ferrari F430 or Lamborghini Gallardo; 2) Porsche 911 Turbo or Aston Martin Vantage Roadster; and 3) Nissan GT-R, BMW M3 or Mercedes C63 AMG. Also included in the package price is a set of digital photos of the driver with the car.

The driving itself is a one-hour open-road 'lead-follow' trek on a pre-planned route. For more time behind the wheel, you can step up to the 'tour', which comes in two or four-hour variations, but is essentially just a longer version of the test drive scenario.

For those that would like a bit more speed and sensation, the company also offers a 'track' package from $250. This includes one orientation lap plus eight runs on a closed autocross-style (pylons on pavement) course in the M3, C63 AMG GT-R or 911 Turbo, plus another three runs in a F430 or Gallardo. There are variations on this package starting as low as $40, which will get you one orientation lap and a single autocross run.

All in all, it's a comprehensive set of offerings for a price that really can't be beat - especially when compared to the competition. P1, for example, charges an annual fee of £12,250 to £15,500 ($18,580 to $23500) plus a one-time joining fee of £2,450 ($3,700). By comparison, there's no competition at all. Of course, even P1 is still a bargain compared to ownership of even a single supercar.

And the very best part: Supercar Sensation is based in North Carolina - so it won't require a passport and an overseas vacation to enjoy the experience.

  5. We went on a Supercar Sensation tour in March, and really had a good time. It's definitely worth the $300. Here's our review of the event:
