Dallas Exotic Car Club Makes Robb Report's A-List

DFW Elite Car Featured in Article on Growing Nationwide Exotic Car Sharing Trend

    /24-7PressRelease/ - DALLAS, TX, October 18, 2007 - Texans with the appetite to drive the best luxury and exotic cars in the world aren't only heading to dealers' showrooms with checkbooks in hand. "Rent, lease, or own for the long term were the options open to car enthusiasts for a Ferrari 360 Spider in 2002," says entrepreneur and DFW Elite Car Club owner Ron Sturgeon.

In the last five years, entrepreneurs across the United States have given exotic car connoisseurs one more option: share. "Although sharing of luxury and exotic cars is relatively new, it is readily understood and widely accepted by affluent car enthusiasts who may already have experience with similar arrangements for aircraft or watercraft," says Sturgeon.

A Robb Report Collection article entitled "The Spice of Life" about the emergence of luxury car clubs in the U.S. points to DFW Elite Car Club as one of six A-list players in the new car club niche.

"We have been working very hard to create a luxury car sharing club in Dallas that allows auto enthusiasts the chance to enjoy an unmatched variety of the best cars in the world in a club atmosphere," said DFW Elite Car Club Director Josh Davis.

"We must be on the right track to make the A-list of exotic car sharing clubs by a magazine as prestigious as the Robb Report. We are especially proud to be the only club in Texas featured in the article," said Davis.

"With a growing number of superb exotic and luxury cars in the six figures and beyond, it's tough for an enthusiast to choose just one or two. The car sharing club puts a fleet of more than 40 cars at a member's disposal for a cost that is far less than the payment on a single exotic," said Davis.

Blas Garcia, a former Microsoft executive, and current owner of Collexium, a Fort Lauderdale based car share club featured in the Robb Report Collection article, underlines the value of driving a variety of exotic and luxury cars in his sales presentations to prospective members with an analogy. "What we like to say is, you wouldn't drink the same bottle of wine all year, no matter how good it is, right."

Variety is only part of the attraction of exotic car club membership. "Most of our members own or have owned exotic cars and they know first hand what it costs to insure, maintain, service, and store these cars. Having been down that road, they love having the club handle all the details, leaving them free to enjoy the top down pleasure of cars such as our newly arrived 2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage and 2007 Bentley Continental GTC," reported Davis.

"I joined for the cars, but I love the social parts of the club," said DFW Elite Car Club member Bill Stevens. "My wife and I have made friends with other couples that share our passion for luxury cars. We've enjoyed meals together and special members' only luxury car driving days. It's been great fun."

James Gassell, a member of San Francisco based Club Sportiva, explained his reasons for belonging to the West Coast club in the Robb Report article, "I have a job, I have kids, and I am extremely time challenged. Being a member here gives me a focused outlet for my passion."

"For the most part, members of exotic car clubs are high net worth individuals who got that way by keeping their money invested in appreciating assets," said Davis "They're financially sophisticated, they do their homework and they join clubs like ours because membership delivers more variety, more fun, and a place among people who share their passion."

DFW Elite Car is headquartered at 5940 Eden in Fort Worth, and serves members throughout the DFW Metroplex with more than 40 exotic and luxury cars, trucks and SUV's. For more information or to see a complete inventory of club vehicles, visit or call 817-331-0788.
