The Monticello Motor Club Opens, Still Probably Closed To You

Illustration for article titled The Monticello Motor Club Opens, Still Probably Closed To You

When you've got the cash to get a supercar with the proper dash, you don't want to ruin it on the streets or, worse, share the track with some upper-middle classer in a Boxster S. That's where a membership at New York's Monticello Motor Club might come in handy. Following the model of the Autobahn Adobe and other tracks for the well-off speed freak, this particular facility takes the checkered flag for opulence. The 4.1-mile road track, which features 22 turns and generous runoffs to keep you and your AMG Black Series whole, is just the beginning of what this new club has to offer.


When you're not lapping the course you can keep your car in the large paddock situated underneath a glass timing tower. Don't want to go through the trouble of having your helicopter land at the executive helipad? Just stay the night in one of the luxury suites, send your significant other to the spa and swap stories of how you wrecked a vintage Porsche this morning and have figured out a way to make it a tax write-off over dinner at the 5-star restaurant. Yearly dues are a relatively affordable $7,500 — assuming you've paid the $125,000 initiation fee. That may sound painful to most, but people who can afford it probably had to endure an Ivy League secret society initiation that involved a dude named Yendrick and the business end of a dirt devil. Compared to that $125,000 is nothing. [Monticello Motor Club via CarScoop]
