E55 for a luxo-performance cruiser

Throw in some VRP mods and a Renntech ELM with a set of HREs or DPEs = drool.....

The day you wake up and think, my life is pretty much over...I'm old as hell...is the day you look to buy a Mercedes. Until that day, stay away from the car of choice of old farts everywhere.

Ultimate speed isn't everything, especially if you live in the States. I really think car choices are much easier. Certain ones speak to you. It's easy to like what you do, and for your own personal reasons. As to the OP, I wouldn't be concerned what others think of your choice of how you feel you are perceived driving something. Get what you like and would enjoy most, and what fits you I guess...literally and figuratively.
