Frequently Asked Questions
What is Club Torque?
Club Torque is designed for car enthusiasts who may already own a performance vehicle but wish to access an entire collection of the very latest models from the fleet of the leading exotic and performance marques without the expense, time and inconvenience of traditional ownership. Extending beyond the one or two vehicles which members may keep in their garage, Club Torque affords its members with access to a fleet of superb machines to enjoy for a specific allocation of time per year. Owners of high performance vehicles are often burdened with the loss of capital and the added costs of insurance, maintenance and storage – making ownership more of a hassle than a luxury, ‘Club Torque will own, store, insure and maintain the fleet, allowing members the freedom to simply drive and enjoy the collection of extraordinary vehicles. Although this is the only offering of its kind in India, this concept has been operating successfully in the British, American, Europe and Australian markets for a number of years. Club Torque is however more than just a car sharing system – it is a members club providing both access to superb luxury performance vehicles and unique lifestyle experiences and benefits.
ls this similar to a fractional ownership or time-share club?
Although there are some similarities with time-share and fractional ownership clubs, there are some important differences: Club Torque members are not tied to a specific vehicle, they do not own a fraction of one or any of the vehicles! and cue not alternated to a pre-defined usage period. There are none of the liability or tax issues related to shared ownership. There are no restrictions related to committing to a specific time-share and vehicle. Although we trust members will remain with the Club for a long time, there is no long-term commitment. Club Torque provides access to a variety of superb performance vehicles for different occasions, different moods and different experiences, in addition to the lifestyle experiences and benefits available exclusively to its members.
