If you’re looking for a job that is exciting and has perks most people can only dream about, we might have just the thing for you.

Hot on the heels of the Bugatti internship comes a job posting by Repair A Car, one of Britain’s largest car service finder service. They are seeking a delivery driver who is responsible, and who can travel back to home base from anywhere in UK or Europe by using public transportation. Oh and one more thing, the person who scores this position will get to drive exotic cars such as Pagani’s and Koenigseggs.

In other words, probably the best job ever for a car enthusiast. Getting the job won’t be easy, because the number of applicants will likely be very high. A spokesperson from the company said, “This is a highly specialized role which requires a very special talent. Driving something like a Bugatti Veyron is a very different experience from driving a Ford Focus. Many of these vehicles are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds so it goes without saying that we are looking for a safe pair of hands here. This isn’t a job for a boy racer.”

Compensation for the successful candidate is not bad either. You’d get a $50,000 yearly salary, plus expenses for the times you’ll need to take a bus or a train to get back to home base.

So if you’re interested, (if you’re on a car website as soon as you wake up, you probably are) then you should polish up your resume and send it over to them.

A Canadian BMW dealership is offering what might very well be the world’s best job – especially if you’re a fan of BMWs. Endras BMW, located just outside Toronto, Canada is now accepting applications for a year-long social media position. The title: Ultimate Blogger.

To become the Ultimate Blogger, Endras is looking for a serious BMW nut. What the lucky individual will land is a $65,000 year-long contract, a one-year lease of a BMW and a condo in downtown Toronto, plus travel to international destinations. (In the past Endras has taken clients to the Nurburgring!)

As the Ultimate Blogger, this winning candidate will cover BMW news for the dealership, run the Facebook page, Twitter account and more.

There is, however, a catch. Considering the tremendous number of BMW fans that are certain to apply, getting the job won’t be easy and applicants will have to prove their worth using their social media skills. Entrants will be required to submit a 200 word statement proving just how ‘connected’ they are. The top 20 chosen will then have just 48 hours to shoot and produce a video highlighting their ‘obsession with performance.’ The top 10 videos with the most votes will then move on to the final interview stage.

And yes, Endras BMW is accepting applications internationally.
