New performance club offers F1-car ownership for £300,000
18 December 2007

If you thought supercar clubs were expensive, the PF1 club puts them into perspective with a joining fee of £302,500.Mind you, it's still the cheapest way to own an F1 car, which is exactly what's on offer.The initial £300,000 will buy you a post-2000 F1 racing car from PF1's pool of Super Aguris, Jaguars and Jordans, which is then your own car to do with as you please – whether you want to sell it on, or displaying it in your living room.More importantly, being a PF1 member means you get tuition from Marc Hynes, trainer to Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen, and the car will be fully maintained by ex-Williams engineer, Tim Preston.Unfortunately you only get to use the car with PF1 support for four events per year, all of which are held at full Formula One circuits.The concept of PF1 is to offer members an F1 car for the price of a supercar, which makes £300,000 seem almost reasonable, but a Carrera GT on your driveway all year round still seems better value.

Come back next year to see Chris Harris drive an F1 car for the first time

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.

    The new Vantage has been developed as a Porsche 911 beater, and our first taste on UK roads suggests it can live up to that bold claim
