Plus you can't enjoy those cars unless you take it to the track, which probably 1% of owners do. I consider there to be a "sweet spot" with cars. Meaning a group factored on price, performance and fun; M3, RS5, 911, C63..
I totally agree and that's why most exotics have such low mileages. Dead on with the "sweet spot" cars.
The "Sweet Spot" List
The worlds best drivers cars to be enjoyed rather than hold you hostage or owned as a trophy (in no particular order):

Mercedes C63 Coupe
Nissan GTR
Audi RS5
Porsche 911

F82 M4 Individual / F87 M2 (on the list) / E36 M3 (track) / E21 320i (S52 + Getrag 420G Swap) / RR Sport (daily)
