You can buy a lot of sports car for $295,000. A fully loaded Lamborghini Gallardo; an Audi R8 and matching R8 V10; three Nissan GT-Rs and a Mustang GT; a 911 Turbo, a Cayman and a Boxster... we can play that game all day. But buying a great car (or cars) is just part of the equation. Insurance, storage, fuel and track time can add up quickly, even for the well-off among us, but the folks over at Skip Barber have a different idea.

The world-famous driving school is offering a lifetime pass for a not so affordable $295,000, but that lofty figure includes just about all the learning and racing your heart desires. Lifetime Fast Fast Pass owners can register for an entire season in advance, race at one of the school's 10 tracks or show up at any event and fill any open spots. One thing lifetime pass owners can't do is bump another driver from a purchased spot; a damn good rule if you ask us.

The latest offer from Skip Barber comes after the driving school offered a $150,000 unlimited pass, $100,000 national pass or a $75,000 regional pass. School officials are gauging interest in the passes, and if too many die-hard drivers purchase a lifetime pass a cap may be placed on the amount of available spots. If you've got the means, get in quick.

      why are you wasting space and posting this garbage?
      • 4 Years Ago
      I feel like in order to make most of those passes worth it, you're going to have to go to skip barber schools on a semi-daily basis (aka who needs a real job?)

      The way to make the most of it would be to register your kid when they were 16 and have them use it for life.

      $295,000 buys alot of car ill probs take a ferarri although i dont know about doing driving lessons in it in my driving school. might be quite fun for the pupils although my nerves would be shot.

      The concept seems great, but that is A LOT of money.. I mean how many lessons and trainings can you go to before you get sick of them??

      ...But I don't have a spare $295K laying around, so it's pretty irrelevant for me.

      In other news,

      Netflix will be offering lifetime memberships with unlimited movie rentals for $1,000,000. Great deal!
        • 4 Years Ago
        And by "unlimited" they'll purposely delay all our movie returns, and effectively only allow you 1-2 DVDs per two weeks, even though they are capable of far higher than that.

      What a way to generate some quick revenue. Even if only a few people go for it... that's a lot of liquidity right now.

      Man, we're all getting rich. I just won the UK lottery! I just have to send the guy some money first for some reason.

      If you can afford $295,000 for a membership you're not the sort of person who will actually pay $295,000 for a membership. The thinking here is genius. There is no market for this, Skip Barber knows this. No one will buy this because if you have that sort of cash you'll never pay for something upfront in this manner. However, what these guys cannot resist doing is working a deal. They'll barter the price down until they feel that they have won. Then they will have to purchase something that makes no sense to them just because to prove that they can. Brilliant.
