Uber Now Offering Lamborghini And Maserati Rides
Making sure your business gets its breakthroughs requires doing something out of the box. And this has been working well for Uber. After using celebrities to chauffeur users in a Volkswagon ride and offering users free rides around the Melbourne F1 circuit, Uber this time, has added Lamborghinis and Maseratis for its users in Singapore to get carried away!
Singapore has high transportation costs with a mid-sized family sedan costing more than S$100,000 after taxes. So with such an offering, Uber is set to grab a fair share in the island state market. The offer, only available till May 20th, lets users choose between Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, or the Maserati GranTurismo Coupe.
But even though in an expensive land with such fancy car offers, the rates Uber has put up are quite affordable. The cars are provided by a local luxury car rental firm, Dream Drive. Availability hours start from 10.am to 9.pm. even that’s enough because of the not-so-expensive fares.
The Lamborghini ride will cost an Uber user S$200 plus a S$7 charge for each additional minute after the first 15 minutes. Whereas the Maserati comes with a little less fare of S$165 but the same additional charges once the journey goes beyond 15.
The users need not to worry about any additional effort they might have to go through for a taste of these rides. Because just like they normally use the Uber app, in order to get on one of these cars, they’ll simply need to slide to either of the supercar type choice. Rest of the journey follows normal procedure with Uber taking care of all issues like payments – so no worries, no cash is really needed.
A slight bummer for all those who fancied a perfect date in such a ride, is the fact that these sports cars can only sit 2 persons at a time. So if one of those two people is your chauffeur the other one’s only going to be you – tough luck!
An official statement by Uber spokesperson Karun Anya shows that the company has high hopes from the partnership and wishes to expand such operation if favorable outcomes exist.
“This is a pilot partnership to offer something amazing to riders in Singapore. If we see a fantastic response and continuing the partnership makes commercial sense for both companies, no reason why we cannot extend this further,” Anya said.
