The über rich always need somewhere to play with their latest track toys, and now there’s a new high-end ‘driving resort’ in Japan that aims to best those already in business in Europe and the USA.

It’s called the Magarigawa Club and there’s a race track, obviously, and an on-site fuel station to minimise time away from the circuit, plus fully crewed workshops, a temperature-controlled storage facility for hundreds of cars, and a helipad. So far, so ultra-high-net-worth.

But this billionaire’s playground caters to its clients – and their families – away from the track as well, with traditional Japanese hot spring bathing, a top-tier gym and yoga studio, a kids’ creche complete with miniature Bugatti pedal cars, and a dog park for one’s pup. And this is Japan, so there’s even a (soundproofed) karaoke room too.

Join TG’s Tom Ford for a tour of this automotive theme park aimed at the 0.01%.
