From Lamborghinis to Ferraris, McLarens, and Bugattis, supercars are one of the most desired vehicles on the road. However, owning and maintain a supercar can be a challenge to just about everyone. However, there is a car-sharing platform that is leading the groundbreaking concept of fractional supercar ownership that makes the ownership of a supercar more accessible than ever – the concept of Supercar Sharing.
With Supercar Sharing, a tech company and exclusive car-sharing club based in Zurich Switzerland, an individual can own 1/10 of a supercar for the price of a new compact sedan. Through the crowdfunding platform supercarsharing.com, a person can lay claim to their desired Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, or other supercars. In many ways, fractional ownership makes much more sense than outright ownership of a supercar for a variety of reasons. Here’s a look at the distinct advantages.
What is fractional supercar ownership?
You may have heard of fractional private jet ownership. In fact, Warren Buffett’s owned NetJet’s has popularized this concept. Well, Supercar Sharing is taking that concept and bringing it to the world of supercars with their platform. The concept is simple: Instead of purchasing a Ferrari for say $400,000, you purchase 1/10 ownership of the Ferrari for $40,000. This gives you the right to drive the Ferrari for 1/10 of the time.
Solving the major problems most supercar owners face
One of the big benefits of fractional supercar ownership is, of course, the fact that you don’t have to spend so much on the vehicle. However, there are other major issues that fractional supercar ownership solves. For instance, the high cost of maintaining a supercar is spread out across 10 owners instead of one. Even well-to-do and rich supercar owners don’t like to contend with the idea of $700 oil changes on a Ferrari 488. However, splitting that $700 oil change cost 10 ways makes everything easier.
Better than leasing?
Leasing is usually considered a variable alternative to purchasing a supercar. However, many supercar lovers don’t want to deal with the idea of driving a supercar that they do not own. After all, there are usually strict mileage restrictions that come with leasing a supercar. This is not the case with fractional supercar ownership. As a fractional owner of the supercar, the owners can drive the vehicle as much as they want.
Buying and selling a Ferrari as easy as buying shares of Apple?
Purchasing a vehicle is never a simple process. Purchasing a supercar can be even more complex. Part of Super Car Sharing’s groundbreaking approach is to make buying supercars as easy as buying shares of Apple on a Robinhood account. A customer can purchase shares in the supercar of their choice. When they are ready to move on to another vehicle, then the customer can simply sell his shares in the Ferrari through Supercar Sharing.
Taking the risk off from the customer
One of the biggest landmines of purchasing a supercar is dealing with the risk of dealing with frauds sellers and dealerships who may hike the price on novice buyers. Supercar Sharing makes all the research and supercar acquisitions on behalf of their customers. This takes the risk off of the customers and allows peace of mind. In fact, Supercar Sharing customers enjoy a “no risk” guarantee that allows them to simply enjoy their supercar experience without any worries also thanks to a well-thought-out software solution.
The future of supercar ownership
Supercar Sharing is ready to do to supercars what NetJets did to private jet ownership on a global scale. So, looking to the future, fractional supercar ownership may be the next big thing on the car sharing market. Supercar Sharing is also currently expanding its fleet to make more supercars and hypercars available in more areas.
