    I just placed my bid on the second one. Red is lot nicer than yellow.

    After that helicpoter and jet I got, I might as well purchase a nice car!

    I wouldn't pay for anything over a car that could effeciently do 120mph often enough..anything else is unrealistic. I have driven 100mph too many times to count(~95 twice a day depending), so, all things considered, I would say that 100-120mph is all I need - something that does that effeciently.

    Why would you need to drive 200+ mph? How often would you do it? Would you exploit a $300,000 - $1,000,000 car on a daily basis?

    Where in the hell would you drive 200-240mph in a city?

    Here, where I live, the best stretch of road that's decent for those types of speeds is a 5 mile stretch of flat, straight, nothingness. With all things considered, on a 5 mile road, that's 240mph for 60 seconds doing 1 mile in 15 seconds and seeing 3 telephone poles per second.

    I doubt the race tracks are flooded with cars that have a standard "dealer" price of $300,000 - $1,000,000.

    Sure, I cannot count the number of times I've seen a Lamborghini or Ferrari at indy, nascar, etc..

    People do not race those kinds of cars, it's unrealistic and stupid. Too the hell damn expensive. I saw a totaled lamborghini on ebay..you know what I did? Laughed. How dumb can you get. Most ghini's you'll find only have a handful of miles on them - that's the norm. Why? Because, they're not a daily driver. They're merely a showcar.

    To back up my point:

    Lamborghini has 3 lines of diablo's.
    Prudction numbers backup the showcar theroy....

    Line X - 80~ production
    Line Y - 40~ production
    Line Z - 1 single car made

    Because I'm a guy?

    >>How often would you do it?

    ... All the time?

    You sick bastard. I'd cry. Probably until the image was no longer burned into my retina (2-3 weeks tops).

    I'd probably laugh. I'm not that really into cars. When i'm older, I'll just create a matter transporter and take that to work.
