The Supercar Owners Circle Is the World’s Most Elite Car Club

Get-togethers for most car clubs typically involve drivers of, say, a dozen Corvettes or classic Mustangs informally gathering at the local burger shack to talk chrome and customizations. For one-percenters, however, there’s a car club so elite that only auto aficionados with the most exclusive — and pricey — garages are allowed inside.

The Supercar Owners Circle is billed as “a global members network of the world’s most discerning car collectors.” Judging by the requirements to join, they aren’t kidding. Membership is capped at just 150 individuals. What’s more, every member owns a collection of roughly 65 cars with an average total value of USD $25 million and an average per-car value of $1.2 million.

These collections represent the crème de la crème of the automotive world — the sorts of cars typically kept under glass in museum-grade, humidity- and temperature-controlled garages. The variety of rides ranges from hypercars like the Bugatti Chiron and McLaren P1 to classics like the Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing and Aston Martin DB4 GT to some of the world’s most recognizable sports cars like the Maserati MC12 and Ferrari F40.

Swiss entrepreneur and former financier Florian Lemberger launched the club with the goal of hosting exclusive automotive-centric events throughout the world. The Supercar Owners Circle currently operates in Europe, Hong Kong, and the United Arab Emirates, and they’re working to expand into Asia, the Middle East, and North America. The Circle partners with high-end car manufacturers — Zagato, Lamborghini, Koenigsegg, and McLaren, to name a few — to develop one-of-a-kind luxury experiences in every location. Events include cultural immersion programs, new car previews, exclusive insights into upcoming projects within the supercar world, and plenty of behind-the-wheel time for members to street “race” one another (legally, of course).

Because we all know owning a stable of million-dollar rides is hard work, members receive access to additional services to help with the logistics of supercar ownership. The club’s Personal Liaison Manager (or “PLM”) provides concierge-level assistance with everything from new car acquisition and selling existing cars to storage, insurance, transportation, and maintenance.

Assuming they pass the rigorous screening process, non-members can get in on the action with one-off acceptance to specific single events around the world. As for full-fledged membership, however, The Supercar Owners Circle is currently full. Member hopefuls are welcome to submit an application. But, don’t call them; they’ll call you.
