Roughly $35,000. I enjoy researching things like this, so here are some cars that you could buy instead of a reliable family sedan.
1. 2006 Mercedes SL65 AMG
I’m a huge fan of this car and have wanted one for years. I realize the cost of yearly ownership is more than the purchase price of a lot of cars as it’s overkill in every area. I remember reading about one running 11's in the quarter mile with the A/C and seat massagers on.
Top Speed: 156mph (delimited:around 210)
MPG ? 13
2. 2003 Dodge Viper SRT10
It’s probably the most ‘exotic’ vehicle you can get for Camry pricing, aside from a broken Ferrari.
Top Speed: 195mph
Times Stolen in Drake & Josh Go Hollywood: 1
3. 2009 Corvette Z06
Possibly the best track car for the money as well as the most reliable, and the modification possibilities are endless. This might be the only list where a 7.0L V8 ranks at the top in terms of fuel economy.
Top Speed: 198mph
4. 2010 BMW M5
The most ‘practical’ of the bunch. I recommend buying at Carmax.
Top Speed: 155 mph (delimited 200+)
5. 2004 Porsche 911 Turbo S
It took me a few days to find one of these, and I agree, the 997 is much better looking.
Top Speed: 190 mph
6. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V
There are almost too many CTS-V’s available at a low price. We should buy them all.
Top Speed: 191mph
