Nearly ten years old, Supercar Driver began its life as a driving club for high-end owners. Now, as we move into 2019, what started as a relatively compact group of like-minded individuals has evolved into the UK’s leading members club for supercar owners, offering the complete ownership experience. Because whether you’re new to the game or a seasoned pro, you’ll know that getting together to trade stories and tips or just see the latest machines out on the road is an unexpected bonus of owning fast cars.
XL Luxe, our supercar and hypercar division, has partnered up with Supercar Driver to offer our clients the benefits of membership to an enthusiastic community with over 700 members nationwide and a wide variety of events to cater for different tastes, exclusive offers and a high quality quarterly magazine. Periodical mailouts and magazine teasers often trail ultra exclusive secret meets where the presence of exceptional and noteworthy cars is a given.
Despite the wildly expensive toys in the supercar landscape, owners are a surprisingly down to earth bunch with whom spending time is easy.
And with the whole of the the British Isles and Europe as your playground, the opportunities to get out there and let rip with your new pals are manifold.
So how does it work? It’s simple, XL Luxe clients are automatically entitled to receive membership to Supercar Driver for 2 years.
Beyond that it’s completely up to you how you choose to use your membership. Whether you’re just content to open your magazine once a month to see what’s going on out there or take part in some of the SCD fundraising events, there’s no pressure.
Bear in mind that, for manufacturers, SCD represents one of the best channels to the right kind of people. Accordingly, the level of access granted to members is jaw-dropping. In the past, the club has enjoyed factory visits to McLaren, Rolls Royce, Bentley Aston Martin and Koenigsegg as well as breakfast meets and exclusive test drives with lead dealerships.
Our relationship with SCD has helped cement XL and its proposition of hassle-free motoring at the forefront of the supercar audience's mind. More importantly, its enabled many of our clients the opportunity to get our there and really enjoy their cars.

SCD members are an adventurous lot. Since the partnership started, SCD and XL drivers have enjoyed trips as far afield as the Cote d’Azur, The Alps, The Scottish Highlands and the United Arab Emirates. Sometimes the centrepiece of the trip has been a race meeting such as Le Mans. However, more often than not, it’s about being on the road and enjoying the feeling of getting busy through the corners with a gang who feel the same way.
And if you’re a bit less concerned with sampling the delights that the desert has to offer, there’s always something a little closer to home. Just throughout October 2018 there were meets in the Breacon Beacons, Peak District, The South Downs and the all-important fish and chip run to Whitby. Because, let’s be frank, just because your motor drinks the finest fuel known to man, that’s no reason to deprive yourself of a pint and a bag of Britain’s finest after a morning spent blasting through God’s Own Country.
So there you have it… the perfect accompaniment to your XL supercar. A ready-made mob of petrol-headed glee fiends ready to get amongst it automotively-speaking.
