Only men owning pricey luxury vehicles such as Lamborghinis, Porsches and Ferraris are allowed to sign up to a brand new dating site, where women list their favourite cars in a bid to bag themselves a rich car lover.
SupercarDating.com, aims to put “fine living companions” in the passenger seat next to wealthy single men.
Site creator Sangeeth Segaram – who drives a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 costing around £300,000 – came up with the idea because he said he struggled to find a genuine date despite being a loaded property developer.
He said: “I spoke to many female colleagues about online dating and the general consensus was that lots of men pretend to be wealthy.
“Carrying property deeds and bank statements on first dates is cumbersome, so I conceived the idea that performance car ownership would provide a glimpse of a date’s wealth.
“Our site enables efficient dating between supercar owners and companions that share a passion for the supercar lifestyle, such as Michelin dining, jet set holidays and high octane experiences.”
But Sangeeth reckons once the fast-lane thrills are over, it’s down to the personality of the potential match to figure whether a date was a success or not.
He said: “Beyond the first 10-15 minutes of a supercar date, the chemistry is down to the humour, charisma and personality of the dates – owning a V12 engine isn’t an antidote.
“No-one needs to date a supercar owner, but it’s a question of whether you would like to try something that’s different. It’s whatever happens on the date that counts.”
Sangeeth recommends that first dates, which would most likely involve alcohol, should not be in the supercars for safety reasons.
The site is offering free annual membership until the end of January 2015, before it costs £220 per year.
