Writing about cars gives us access to the highest-horsepower, biggest-pricetag machines in the world, but now there's a chance for civilians to do the same, in Europe, at least.
A company in the U.K., called RepairACar, is looking to hire one lucky individual to transport exotic cars around the Continent for owners too busy and too rich to care to do it themselves.
The business model is fairly simple: owners of hyper-exotic cars don’t have time to get them repaired or serviced. RepairACar sends delivery drivers to clients throughout Europe, and these drivers are responsible for getting a client’s car safely to and from a service center. Since the firm covers all of the EU, delivery drivers never know where they’ll be dispatched next. In other words, plan on racking up lots of BritRail and Eurail miles.
The requirements are pretty specific: you need at least 10 years experience driving hyper-exotic cars, preferably within the EU. You need customer service skills, since the fabulously wealthy have certain expectations, and it wouldn’t hurt if you spoke three or four languages fluently. You need to be available for travel on a regular basis, so the job isn’t well suited to anyone with a family or even a house. The pay is good, roughly the equivalent of $50,000 per year, and travel expenses are reimbursed.
If you’re interested and fit the requirements, you have until the end of the month to submit your application at RepairACar.
