If you’re part of the 1% who owns a high-performance vehicle but not a significant other, a UK-based social media and supercar dating website claims to have what you need: partners who “share passion for high octane experiences.”
Its slogan? “Test Drive Your Date.”
Calling itself the “world’s first wealthy dating social and networking club exclusively for Supercar/High Performance Car owners and Fine Living Companions,” $upercar Dating is a UK-based website for wealthy auto enthusiasts who need a little romantic assistance. After all, finding true love (or a good time without strings attached) can be difficult for the ultra-wealthy.
The site was started by a young Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster owner looking to connect auto afficianados through $upercar Dating and $upercar Circle (social networking) services. It’s currently open to UK and EU residents and supercar owners only, but will expand to North America, Australia, and Russia once the site launches in 2015.
While the supercar dating site is dedicated to owners of Lamborghinis, Porsches, Ferrarris, Bugattis, Lotuses, and so forth, those looking to enjoy wealth are still encouraged to enroll as a “Fine Living Companion” (yes, that’s the official name). These members don’t have to own a supercar but can only participate in the social network via special invitation. Not just anyone can enjoy the organized date parties which include Michelin fine dining and private track days.
It’s difficult to ignore the gut reaction to $upercar Dating as a place for people with too much money and not enough social skills, but it’s probably difficult for the wealthy to date without fear of gold-diggers, Fiat Multipla drivers, and those who prefer being chauffeured around. Why shouldn’t they get an equal shot, just like sea captains and crazy cat people do?
And a love of lavish cars is trait we certainly endorse.
