Will it piss off the partners if I buy a ZR1? I mean, Bentley is ridic, but I do want something nice to ride in every morning. Been looking at cars lately, spending my make-believe-millions. I really like the Audi R8, but it's just not worth the money when the ZR1 is so affordable.
The issue I find with the ZR1 is the constant maintainance you need to do on the car. Everything from breaks and rubbers to the tune-ups. Though, it goes for any "track-ready" car. Same goes with Skylines, STI's Evolutions, Z06's, Porsche 911RS.
I'd say go with something with a CTS-V or M5. Still rape face, but they have nice concierge service when you go have to get stuff done to it.
You can also do a regular Porsche for work and a skyline/Z06 for everything else. A Porsche 911 Turbo goes for about the price of both cars combined.
Here's the thing. I just want the most bang for my buck, preferably under $150K. I'm not really going to drive it work. It would be a weekend car, so the maintenance costs would be mitigated. And nothing touches the performance on that ZR1. Not even close. It looks pretty nice too. Not the nicest looking car, but up there.
Yeah, if it's not going to be driven to work then definitely ZR-1.
If I'm never going to leave Miami, I'd instead go with a Viper - though they're being discontinued. I just don't like stability control or none of that other nonsense they use.
I will admit though, ZR-1's are the best launching vehicles I've ever seen given enough rubber.
