good idea until ferrari made an agreement that once you buy the car from ferrari dealer, you will get money back once you sell it but you aren't making any profits. dealer keeps it.

according to ferrarichat.com....

Wow, even though my username is "Bimmer Loyalist" I couldn't possibly take any of those cars over an F430 or Murcielago LP640. I hate to say that, not just because it goes against my loyalty to the Bimmer brand, but because it's such a generic thing to do. Generally, when anyone (that includes non-car enthusiasts) thinks of a super car they could own they usually say Ferrari or Lambo and it kind of ticks me off. However, if price isn't an issue, I honestly can't see any logical reason to go with any of the others when you have these two far more expensive, more luxurious, and overall more exotic cars to choose. The only possible reason would be brand loyalty (and I mean serious hardcore loyalty) or if someone's a track lover.

If the cars were more closely priced (knock off the Lambo, Ferrari, the turbo Porsche, and both Mercs) then I'd go M6 in a heartbeat.

Didn't even think about that, but yes. The Lambo would really be the only one. The F430 and the rest are more along the lines of GT's.

I agree with brummelens post.

The results of this post are making me happy..

Except for the idiots who chose the BMW's!! Even if you wanted an M6, get a 430, sell it, and then get the M6 and 200K+ of cash for gas and mods..

Oh man nice choices for cars, had to decided between turbo and M5. i picked the turbo cause ive seen that car and its just plain perfect. Love the rims on it. Ive driven the F430, and it was great too, just one problem was the sound of the engine behind my head. It was really annoying and all, should be a secondary car. But god is it a fun car to go fast in!

oh and btw, 2 points i would say:

1st, i dont think you can say "i will take that car, sell it and get another one plus cash" this will affect on your judgement on the cars...

2nd, i know im very loyal to BMW, but they are not a company that manufactures super cars, every BMW can be a daily car...
i picked my choice as a "super car" not "daily, luxury, comfy, fast car"

i picked the gt turbo because I'm a low key kind of person. the Lambo & Ferrari are just dying for attention. Most people will recognize the GT as a porshce but won't know it does 0-60 in 3.6secs hence why I choose it over the GT3 and the turbo is actually faster around the track than the GT3. GT3 is not comfortable enough for me to use daily while the turbo is.

i see your point...but there is no way you can claim to be "low key" with a Porsche Turbo. With the classic looks and a monsterous wing i don't think you'll be fooling anyone...even if you debadged it. The cars on the above list would not be daily drivers (at least I don't think so) but only pulled out from the garage when you wanted to go for a nice drive in the country or by the ocean...so not sure you would be picking based on long term comfort.

Besides...in real life, if you were a true baller and had enough disposable cash lying around to buy an exotic/hypercar you'd be wealthy enough to afford more than one car. likely you still have a primary city car. I dunno...maybe like a BMW e90/91/92?

Which if you think about it...is kinda awesome. We are all probably driving the same car most of us would be driving even if we were rich enough to buy/drive a hypercar. :rocks:

Well...then again maybe I would be driving the new M3 (when it comes out) or a Porsche Carrera S as a daily driver.

I would seriously consider the new SLR 722. Fernando Alonso just picked his up (Fernando Alonso drives for Vodafone Mclaren Mercedes in F1 for those of you who don't know).

Depends where you live. You see Turbo Porsches everywhere in Southern California.
