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):

BMW M3
Mercedes C63 Coupe
Nissan GTR
Audi RS5
Porsche 911

Suggestions?
