Car lovers dating site

There is a membership category costing up to £135 a year for people who have a passion for fast metal but not the wherewithal.On the site, these people are dubbed Fine Living Companions.If that has a ring of something you could buy in the kitchenware department of Fortnum & Mason, think again; it refers to people who are keen to meet supercar owners for the purpose of, er, sharing their lifestyle.

“Instead of dating someone for their bank statement,” he says, “we try to get that common interest between all our members.

It’s about sharing a passion, about having something to talk about.

And it’s an efficient way to expand your social circle for people who are often very time poor.” Apart from cars, the website suggests common interests might include “Michelin dining, jet-set holidays, an appreciation for fine art and high-octane experiences”.

Most supercars and high-performance cars qualify for membership: Porsches, Aston Martins, Rolls-Royces, Bentleys, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis and Nobles, and some BMW, Range Rover and Mercedes models.

IF YOU own a Lamborghini Gallardo or a Ferrari 599, chances are you’re used to getting what you want, when you want, in precisely the right spec, with all the extras you can imagine, safe in the knowledge you can upgrade to an exciting new model whenever the passion wanes.

But relationships are nowhere near that straightforward.So a new online dating club has been launched to help lonely supercar owners get to grips with the complex mechanics of intimate personal relations.Or as puts it: “Make wealthy dating and social networking more efficient for those [who] share a passion for the supercar lifestyle.” The club, which was launched officially last week (it’s been invitation only up to now), is open to anyone who owns a supercar, as well as anyone interested in the sort of person who owns a supercar.And, apparently, we shouldn’t leap to sexist conclusions, because 20% of the supercar owner-members are women, says founder Sangeeth Segaram, 34, who drives a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 roadster.Membership of the dating club costs £65 a month or £380 a year for supercar owners (who are asked to provide proof of ownership) and includes exclusive social events and access to the members-only dating and networking site.“The number of members is rising by about 20%-30% each month,” says Segaram, who was a millionaire at 24, thanks largely to property investments in Canary Wharf, east London (he also runs his family’s hospital business in Malaysia).
