None of these are on my short list, but I am currently looking at the McLaren 600 Long Tail, 600LT coupe which is a 2019 production only. Probably less than 3,000 produced world wide.
dang, i just gave mine to a homeless person 2 days ago- sorry
And a 1998 Honda Civic Coupe....Both in excellent condition...
Here is the Chris Harris video of a 600LT track drive in the wet:
A 2015 or newer Mustang GT with the 5.0L Coyote engine is on my list of things to get before my time on earth is done. The Corvette’s and Camaro’s are great too.
I previously had:
1972 Porsche 914-6
1993 Mazda RX-7
1986 Porsche 911 Turbo
2013 Mercedes C300 Sport
2013 Audi S6 V8-Turbo
One of my brothers has a Camaro LT1 and has had electronic mapping upgrades. It is a BEAST! It will break back tires lose at near 70 mph.
Ford has released a supercharger upgrade kit for (I think) 2017 and later Mustang GT. It must be installed by Ford or ASE certified mechanics to keep the warranty. I think the car will have about 700 HP with this kit. This may be the best bang for the buck!
Back in the day, even the then "supercar" models were affordable to a lot of people, especially used.
Today, even middle of the road trucks and cars are being purchased with 7, or 8 year loans. A friend told me his daughter just took out a "120 month" loan.
Salaries have stagnated, but prices have gone through the roof.
I enjoy going to classic car shows with my car, and seeing other people who treasure theirs. The 5 million dollar club for cars is just too extreme for most Americans.
Getting in and out of any of those low cars a few times at my age, would be painful and embarrassing, especially if I have to roll out on the ground to get out...
No Mercedes..nor Audi's...
Here is my choice for most sports beautiful car...
I’d be terminally frustrated not being able to “play” with my toys properly....
If one wants to buy one of the best new sports cars in the world one must pay millions and millions of dollars. The best pure luxury cars in the world can be had only for hundreds of thousands of dollars...but if one wants one of the best, if not the best production off-road vehicles in the world, one needs only go down to the Jeep dealership and pick up a base Rubicon for about $50K. IMHO, one will get a lot more utility out of the deal.
This old geezer has a 1992 LT1 and a 2009 C-6 Corvette just waiting for some warm weather.
OK, “rich guy” we are impressed.
The Bugatti Veyron is one of the most beautiful cars ever built. It is a triumph of engineering and design. I would love to have one, provided I could afford to maintain it (a set of tires costs $40,000 because the wheels need replacing as well), store it, and insure it.
The other cars shown in this slideshow are far too garish for my taste, however.
If I can’t have a Veyron, I’ll take any or all of the following:
1956 Continental Mk. II
1957 Cadillac Eldorado Broughm
1958 Edsel Citation convertible
1959 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz
Those are the top five, anyway.
For the uber-rich, its not enough to have one of these, you have to have serial # 001. That makes it even more exclusive because always there is only one #1.
