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.

0-60: 3.8s

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.

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.

4. 2010 BMW M5

The most ‘practical’ of the bunch. I recommend buying at Carmax.

0-60: 4.2s

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.

6. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V

There are almost too many CTS-V’s available at a low price. We should buy them all.
