WHAT DOES IT COST TO OWN A SUPERCAR?
COMPARE THE VALUE: OWNERSHIP VS. MEMBERSHIP
How much does it really cost to own a Supercar? Owning one of the best supercars on the road may seem like a dream, but is it worth it? We’ll help you understand the real cost of owning a supercar and cover all the things you might not have considered.
1) TAX & TITLE
The cost of ownership begins with tax, title and license fees. Plan on spending $15,000 - $20,000 before you even take the first drive.
2) INTEREST / COST OF CAPITAL
Financing a supercar isn’t cheap - and if you purchase the car outright, the cost of capital is even more because of tied-up cash. Figure at least $12,000 a year for this.
Coverage for a supercar is different than your daily driver. Realistically, expect to pay around $5,000 a year and be prepared for serious limitations in the policy.
4) VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
Annual service can run $5,000 and tires cost at least $2,000 for a set of four. Expect the unexpected, and don’t rely on it being covered under warranty. Allocate $2,500 per year at a minimum.
Like conventional cars, expect to see your prized possession lose 40-50% of its value over a three-year period. Even more for high mileage or if any Carfax issues are reported. Estimate $35,000 - $40,000 per year and you’ll be right on track.
6) TOTAL COST
In total if you are looking to get a supercar with an MSRP of $250 to $500k, you are looking to pay about $60,000-$90,000 a year for just one vehicle.

WHY SHOULD I JOIN THE CLUB?Freedom Supercars affords members the opportunity to drive the most exclusive vehicles in the world without enduring the pitfalls of ownership. We are dedicated to giving our members the ultimate driving experience and are always seeking to identify new ways to enhance our member's experiences through both off-site and on-site club events.

With 4 levels of membership to choose from, there is a membership level for you. Contact one of our membership specialists and they can customize a membership for you from around 15, 30, 60, or 100 days per year in the supercars. The club is a perfect fit for any schedule.
IS THIS SIMILAR TO A FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP CLUB?No. Although fractional ownership clubs and our club both allow members to use vehicles, they are not similar. Freedom Supercars eliminates the hassles of ownership from the equation. By foregoing ownership, members do not have any risk as far as depreciation, maintenance or storage. All our members have to do is enjoy the supercars as they were intended.
DO I NEED ADDITIONAL INSURANCE?Freedom Supercars’ vehicles have insurance that covers the vehicles while you are behind the wheel. Our only requirement is that members have personal auto insurance and most standard policies provide sufficient coverage.
HOW DOES THE CLUB COMPARE TO EXOTIC CAR RENTAL?It doesn't. The private nature of our club ensures that all the vehicles in the collection are driven only by members; who drive respectfully, enjoy the pleasure of driving and treat them as if they are their own supercars. The club is a membership experience and not a rental thrill-ride.
IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE FOR JOINING?Freedom Supercars requires members to be at least 25 years of age and each applicant will be considered on an individual basis. Depending on driving record and age, additional insurance may be needed.
HOW DO I JOIN?Freedom Supercars has staff on hand to get you in the club. Ask for an application and as long as there are spots available we will work to get your membership approved as soon as possible.
DO YOU OFFER CORPORATE MEMBERSHIPS?Absolutely, please call us for more information on how we can customize a membership that fits perfectly for the way you would like to use a corporate membership.
WHAT DRIVING EXPERIENCE DO I NEED TO JOIN THE CLUB?We have you covered, as we provide for a High-Performance Driving Course for each and every member that will be a tailored fit to your driving style. And each time you reserve a vehicle, we will review the operation of that vehicle to make certain you are comfortable driving. It's a great setup as it allows members to enjoy the vehicles and have no worries.
HOW DO MEMBERS CHECK OUT THE SUPERCARS?Reservations, check-in, and check-out are streamlined to be quick and efficient. We know your time is valuable, and we strive to make the process enjoyable, with the fastest possible turnaround. Rest assured that the vehicle you reserve will have a full tank of gas and will be thoroughly detailed for your pick-up. If you leave your car with us, we will keep it secure and return it to you freshly washed and vacuumed.
HOW ARE VEHICLE RESERVATIONS HANDLED?Reservations are handled through our 24-hour supercar reservation hotline. If you do not know what car fits your plans one of our reservation specialists can suggest a supercar that will offer the best fit.
HOW DO WEEKEND RESERVATIONS WORK?Weekends are always three days in length, as the vehicle is prepared for pickup on Friday afternoon and due for return on Monday morning.

CAN I TAKE THE SUPERCARS ON ROAD TRIPS?You are welcome to take the supercars on road trips, as it is up to you how you choose to use your points and mileage. Keep in mind that there is a 300-mile radius from the club for roadside assistance reasons.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A SUPERCAR BREAKS DOWN?In the unlikely event of a problem, the club provides every car with comprehensive, 24-hour roadside assistance. We will then arrange for either your personal vehicle or another car from our fleet to be delivered to you immediately.
WHO CAN DRIVE UNDER THE MEMBERSHIP?Only the drivers listed on the membership application are allowed to drive the club cars. Corporate membership and other membership share plans are available to assist in making sure each driver can be listed on the membership.
HOW LONG CAN I KEEP A PARTICULAR SUPERCAR?In order to make sure that a specific car is not monopolized by a single member, the maximum length of an individual booking is seven consecutive days. During that time, members are free to use the cars as their own.
CAN I TAKE THE SUPERCAR ON THE TRACK?Unfortunately, no. All cars are for road use only, and they are not to be used on any track or for any form of timed or motorsport event. Club sponsored track days are sometimes planned and details can be found on the events and tours page of this site.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T USE ALL MY DRIVING TIME?Unused driving time will carry-forward to following years, so you never lose unused points going forward!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I REFER A FRIEND TO JOIN THE CLUB?To show our appreciation, we will credit the referring member with 8 bonus-driving days for introducing us to someone that joins the club. The driving days will be reflected by an increase to the current year points allocation as our way of saying "thank you".
WHAT IS A FREE PASS WEEKEND?Sometimes a beautiful weekend happens upon us without expectation, or an important event becomes scheduled with very little notice. When that happens, check the club for last minute availability from Tiers 1-4 and utilize a Free Pass to enjoy a previously unreserved supercar for the entire weekend without using any points for the vehicle reservation and getting 150 miles of complimentary driving.
