Every car enthusiast who has already owned an exotic or luxury car realizes their dream by acquiring a magnificent car and then a few months later, wanting something else. We thought that there has to be an easy way to drive different types of cars without having to actually OWN THEM (register them, maintain them, repair them, detail them, insure them, etc.).


We are now excited to share our passion for beautiful (and fast!) cars with the clients and members of The Luxe Car Collective.


Coming from a client focused background, our team understands the importance of your trips, rest assured that you can always rely on quick communication, reliable deliveries, and most importantly really incredible cars with impeccable 5-star service. So WELCOME, find your favorite car and let's drive!

Our Mission:

TO GIVE YOU Time to experience the joy of driving incredible luxury and exotic cars without the hassle of having to own one.

The two of us have been friends since 2003.

We met through our shared passion of sportbikes and both owned GSXR's back when they were cool. Since we lived in the same complex we used our entrepreneurial skills to convince 4 more of our friends to all store their motorcycles in the same garage so we could split up the $50 monthly rent... Guess you could say it was a motorcycle collective, of sorts?

Christine (Chrissy)

"I've been a car enthusiast all of my life, starting at age 6 with my Red Power Wheels Jeep, power by a 12V battery that I would drive around the block all day long until the battery would die. Then a few years later got my dream present: A go-cart that I was obsessed with. It was not much time until I convinced my dad to switch out the 5hp motor for a 15hp.

While other teenagers were partying & drinking on Friday nights, I was {illegally} drag racing a ’67 Ford Mustang in my hometown (Lancaster, CA). Also spent some time at LACR (Los Angeles County Raceway). By age 21 I decided cars were not fast enough and purchased my first sportbike. I currently own a Yamaha R6 (pictured above) that I take to different racetracks (mostly Chuckwalla) and through the twisty canyons here in SD. I also just obtained my Amateur Motorcycling Racing License in September 2017.

In my spare time, I volunteer 1-3 times per year at the Russo and Steele car auction, driving some of the most beautiful (and rare) cars right onto the auction block. I am also an active member of the San Diego Audi Club and a co-leader of the San Diego Sportriders Group.”

"As a kid I wanted to grow up to be a professional motor-cross racer.  Unfortunately, my parents wouldn’t allow me to have a motorcycle so I had to make up for it once I could drive.  After getting my license, I spent a good part of the next two years working to pay for speeding tickets and sitting in courtrooms.  After college I did a better job of not getting tickets but started the more expensive habit of switching cars every year.

Once I moved to San Diego I decided to enjoy the weather playing in the canyons on my GSXR1000.  That is when I met my friend and fellow car/motorcycle enthusiast Chrissy.  I went on to own a Yamaha YZ450F and while it was fun I quickly realized that I completely lacked the talent to race motor-cross professionally (maybe my parents knew that all along?).  So I went back to enjoying as many cars as possible."
