Style File: Car Club
If you want to live life in the fast lane, buckle your seat belts. In tonight's Style File, we found a way you can drive a different set of wheels whenever you want. It's an exclusive club where the cars are the stars.
WSVN -- From cruising the beach to rolling up at the club, nothing makes a grand entrance like a high-end car.
Elliott Wallace: "As a car enthusiast, I love cars, I love fast cars."
Car lovers with a need for speed are shifting into high gear this month with the opening of Collexium -- an invite-only car club, where members share a fleet of dream cars.
Blas Garcia Moros: "I know how much fun it is to drive your favorite car, like my Ferrari 360 Spider, but I also know the desire of driving many different cars."
Blas Garcia Moros is the founder, and his philosophy: Why own one hot car when you could drive ten?
Blas Garcia Moros: "This is the beauty of Collexium -- there is no fixed long-term commitment to one car."
No commitment, just contentment for members.
They're choosing between Ferraris, Lamborghini's, Bentleys, even a Lotus.
Elliott Wallace: "I suffer from attention disorder when it comes to cars I think this will satisfy the need to have change."
Belkys Nerey: "Membership gets you about 30 driving days a year. You just pick the car that matches your mood, reserve it, then the biggest decision is where you'll take it for a spin.
Elliott Wallace: "Going out with my wife to dinner, perhaps going out of town."
Manny Medina: "My favorite use for the car will be on the weekends, early in the morning, to take a ride over to Everglades National Park."
But the price might put your wallet into overdrive.
It's $15,000 to join and then another $15,000 each year.
But members say it's not a bad deal, when you compare it to owning one of these hotties.
Manny Medina: "The price is not expensive when you compare it to a couple hundred thousand dollar car, maintaining it."
With a car like this, the real cost could be a speeding ticket.
But, hey, at least you'll look good getting one.
Elliott Wallace: "Whoo -- now that's a car!"
Blas hopes to eventually have 100 cars in the collection and clubs all over the nation.
