Classic Car Club

October 2021

The people who live in the luxury rentals at 555TEN are no strangers to the perks of one of Manhattan’s most dynamic neighborhoods: Midtown West. Whether it’s Central Park, Hudson Yards, Columbus Circle, or spectacular views of the city skyline and Hudson River to enjoy from the comforts of home—the best of New York City is right in front of them. But, while the city’s most alluring—and enduring—attractions are within walking distance, 555TEN residents may sometimes want to take a trip on four wheels. Fortunately, the nearby Classic Car Club Manhattan offers its members exclusive access to an impressive array of vehicles.

The Classic Car Club is the portal to a surreal fleet of cars, in fact, complemented by a range of perks from a full calendar of events in the city and abroad. Memberships—including Clubhouse and Driving Memberships priced at $180/month—enable drivers to use the club’s Rolls Royces, Ferraris, Porsches, and McLarens, among other envy-inducing offerings. Take the Aston Martin for a journey down city streets in James Bond-worthy style, head to the Hamptons for a weekend retreat with the top down in a classic Corvette, or explore the foliage upstate with a Land Rover Defender or Bronco with camping gear in tow.

Though residents of the Midtown rentals at 555TEN have their own clubroom and bar 56 stories up on the building’s rooftop, the Classic Car Club offers a private members-only lounge for an opportunity to relax in style away from home. The duplex clubhouse has a heated 3,200-square-foot terrace on the Hudson River, making it the perfect locale for enjoying a post-drive glass of wine or a meal alfresco. The 8,000-square-foot gallery room boasts soaring 30-foot ceilings and a state-of-the-art air filtration system for an added level of safety indoors and is furnished with swanky-cool designs throughout. Members can also kick back at the club’s restaurant—with an evolving menu that includes classics like dry-aged steaks, crisp hand-cut fries, and duck rillettes—all elegantly presented in a sleek yet relaxing atmosphere.

While members are invited to drive some of the world’s best engineered and designed cars on the road, they can also indulge their inner race car driver with the CCC’s simulators. The club’s simulator rooms were crafted by Motion Simulation after years of research and development with Formula 1 teams and are equipped with panoramic projection screens, fully variable driving positions, and the most sophisticated and realistic reproduction of the driving track and the feel of racing.

Whether 555TEN residents take a dashing new car onto the open road or race in a high-tech simulator room, the Classic Car Club provides another convenient option for appreciating some everyday luxuries. To learn more about life and luxury in the Midtown rentals at 555TEN, contact our team.
