Ferrari plans to create one of the world’s most exclusive collector car clubs, according to reports.
The brand is looking to create a new group of its most elite customers who will be offered the best opportunities to get their hands on limited-edition models.
Ferrari plans to open it only to people who possess at least five of the eye-wateringly expensive Italian supercars. That amounts to around 300 people around the world.

This is a coffee table containing the compacted remains of a Ferrari inside constructed by designer Charly Molinelli.
He came up with the idea after a customer asked him to design something “a bit special” for their front room.
He then sourced a wreck and built a wooden cabinet on wheels to present to his client – although the price of the swanky piece is unknown.
Porsche and Ford have become the latest brands to offer customers the chance to pick their dream cars via online configurators.
Brands are increasingly tapping the internet to let customers design their perfect model without even leaving the house.
The trend was originally started by Bentley, which has allowed customers to design their own hand-built luxury models for some time now at bentleyconfigurator.com.

Ferrari launched its first dealership in India on Thursday, seven years after it entered China but with the same aim of satisfying demand for flashy cars from the growing class of Asia’s super-rich.
The full range of sports cars from the Italian manufacturer will be on sale, with the cheapest model, the California, priced at 22 million rupees (485,000 US dollars) after punitive import tariffs of more than 100 percent are applied.
“We decided that after 2010 India was ready for Ferrari,” group chief executive Amedeo Felisa told reporters at the launch of the dealership in central New Delhi.
Fans of the prancing horse who prefer two wheels have traditionally been rather hard done by, but a new Ferrari helmet means that need no longer be the case.
The new motorcycle helmet, made by NewMax under license from Ferrari, costs €249 and is available from the Italian luxury marque’s online store, the latest addition to a licensing empire which spans clothes, mugs, wallets and even a €1,208 chess set.
The helmet is finished in a high gloss cover lined with satin-finished aluminium, but afficioniados will be most pleased with the leather trim and embossed Ferrari logo.
