As awesome as the gt500 is, I would never own one - way too impractical as a DD and way too obnoxious to drive in a professional setting.
100% agree. Especially your last sentence. I will tell you that pricing is different or it was for me. On 1/1/12 I bought a fully loaded 12 GT500 brand new for $51k. On 10/31/12 I bought a brand new almost fully loaded M3 for $70k. That is not the same retail. Otherwise I agree with you.
