Uber Offers Supercar Rides in Singapore Through May 21

Mar 26, 2015 08:15 AM EDT | Matt Mercuro


Taxi-hailing app Uber is teaming with a luxury rental service to provide customers with rides in fancy Lamborghinis and Maserati's.

The service will only be available to Uber customers in Singapore unfortunately, but those looking to get around the Southeast Asian island are in luck.

Through May, a ride in a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will cost about 200 Singapore Dollars ($146) for a quarter of an hour, and an additional S$7 for every minute past the first 15 spent in the Spyder.

A Maserati GranTurismo Coupe costs about 165 Singapore Dollars ($120 USD) for the first 15 minutes and 7 SGD ($5.10) for every subsequent minute. 

The pickups were free courtesy of Dream Drive last weekend, according to Uber's blog.

Uber users that want to be picked up by a Maserati or Lambo can access the option just by dragging the slider within the Uber app.

Users can also pay for the ride using their phone as well.

"This is a pilot partnership to offer something amazing to riders in Singapore," Uber spokesperson Karun Arya told CNET this week. "If we see a fantastic response and continuing the partnership makes commercial sense for both companies, no reason why we cannot extend this further."

This isn't the first stunt Uber has pulled to get more users. Previously the company has "hired" celebrities in Malaysia to chauffeur users for charity and offered Uber users rides around the Melbourne F1 circuit for free.

The luxury vehicles are available from 10 am to 9 pm every day until May 20, 2015.

If you'd like to drive the car yourself, book a Dream Drive experience through their website now.

Uber is valued at around $40 billion currently in its latest fundraising.
