The economic indicators all point towards the economic turnaround firmly on track. The luxury segment in every field is more active today than it was a year ago. Another indicator that proves this hypothesis is the opening of a new location of the Classic Car Club of Manhattan in New York. The first location of the club was opened way back in 2005 and it had created quite a buzz.
For their second location in New York the club has taken over a turn-of-the-century carriage house on East 73rd Street in Manhattan. Michael Prichinello, the co founder of the club, while talking to the NY Times explained the choice of the new location as being in the right area that offers easy access in and out of town. The new location will be the Classic Car Clubs seventh international location. Apart from New York the club has a presence in SoHo, London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Copenhagen and Lithuania.
The new location has opened the opportunity for 120 new memberships in the New York area. The membership for the new club starts at $8,000 as annual fees. The members will get access to the fleet of more than 45 cars including Ferraris, Lamborghinis and classic American muscle cars. The members will also be entitled to full insurance coverage, 24-hour access to the members lounge and participation in plenty of fun events such as rallies and other non-car-related luxuries including whisky tastings.
