I'm in absolutely no position to buy an exotic right now. The M3 IS as exotic as I can get...
To me the 911 Turbo does have the performance of an exotic, but really isn't one. I'll gladly own one of those.
What I'd be interested is the first gen Gallardo. I know everyone and their moms had one of these in Miami and LA, but I love it. Somewhat attainable in the future, some German engineering and who doesn't love a good V10.
As for the R8, I wouldn't really touch the R8 with the V8 mostly due to the carbon build up issues. Does anyone know if the V10 suffers the same issue?
Keep in mind I'd plan on DIY'ing and maintaining all these cars myself.
