Ignorance! They just dont know any better is my only conclusion...Having been around Scottsdale most of my life and seeing exotics daily brings a sharp reality to what your really driving. Having said that it would also be more clear that although this not being apples to apples, we are not even comparing the same fruit tree.

Well, with the stipulation, I would take the exotic, sell it, and settle for a fleet including a Corvette, a Boss 302, and a Challenger SRT 392.

you ask some odd questions my friend...
Where'd you come up with $150K? A low option Gallardo is about $190K. The Aventador is better than twice that.

I wonder how many Hondas..you can buy with that kinda money? Resale value is good so i'd purchase like 12 Honda Accords and resell them for a good profit.

Everybody has a good point. But what if there was one stipulation - you had to KEEP the Lamborghini or the Ferrari. You couldn't sell them to buy anything else. So you'd be stuck with the maintenance AND the insurance note! I bet there would be a lot of different decisions made if that was part of the deal...

I'm maxed out on car payments and insurance payments with my Camaro. So I'll just stick with it.

I'd take the exotic, sell it and buy a '70 Chevelle SS, a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, a Corvette and a little135 or 325i for a daily driver.

But not being able to own another Camaro for ten years would certainly give me pause.. And if I had to keep the Lambo or the Ferrari, probably no dice because I couldn't afford the fuel, insurance and maintenance!

This is one of those questions your woman asks you, then gets pissed at you for the wrong answer! haha.

The answer to this question would vary based on your current state of mind, financial situation etc.

In light of that, I would sell it, get my ass out of debt, and then I could afford a car loan for another car, and possibly retire before I am too damn old to enjoy it!!!
