You don't have to be a millionaire to drive one of the world's most exotic cars. All you have to do is join a shared ownership car club. Imagine yourself cruising down the coast in a Lamborghini Gallardo, taking a cross country road trip in a Maserati Quattroporte, pulling up to your high school reunion in an Aston Martin or touring Europe in a Rolls Royce Phantom. You can drive any of the cars without worrying about maintenance and repair costs or the high price of insurance. To learn how, follow these quick and easy steps.

Locate an exotic timeshare car club. Buying into one of these clubs entitles members to access any number of the world's most desirable cars throughout the year at a fraction of the cost of owning one. You don't have to settle for just one special car. Members pay only for the time they use the cars, avoiding the purchase price, upkeep and storage costs that put these supercars out of reach for the average driver. See the Resource Section for a list of clubs to join.
Recognise the additional benefits of car timeshare club membership. Some clubs hold weekend car rallies to interesting destinations, car races, golf weekends, club dinners and wine tasting parties, and even European tours in the club's cars. The club can arrange pick up and delivery of the car at location of the member's choice.
Realise that almost all the clubs have a screening process and require background checks and clean driving records. This policy helps to ensure all cars will be well treated by all the members. Also, the limited membership makes it more likely that the car you want to drive will be available when you want to reserve it. Some of the clubs block out specific periods members can use the cars, like a traditional timeshare, while others allow reservations throughout the year for a weekend or several days at a time. Some of the clubs also allow trading of time among members.
Consider a corporate membership offered by some of the clubs. This special membership allows businesses to offer the use of an exotic car as a perk or an incentive for qualified employees. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind gift for a special person, some clubs also offer gift tokens for a one-time weekend use.
