You put something like this on the market and then tell everyone that it costs well under 100k and that its "supercar" fast... We now see why supercars are expensive. Not that anything could help the Enzo... BUT. What if the Enzo was the same, but less exclusive and under 100k? I don't think we'd see anymore on the road.

My point? I think I just realized why supercars are so expensive. EXCLUSIVITY. Its just like housing. As price goes up, so does class. You don't see weed-head low lifes jumping out of their Civic's and Daewoo's into Ferrari's do you? Maybe the GTR is under-priced. In which case, I don't think that even dealer markup can help us now.
So let me get this straight. What you're saying is, rich people who can afford to buy cars more exotic than the GTR can drive better than those who can't? If that is what you're saying, then allow me to raise the

This was actually local to me. Apparently the guy who owned it has way more money than brains.

I think he's saying they would be more responsible, not that they are "better drivers". I know people that have really fast cars. They track them. They can afford it. They get together and rent a track for a day. Do it ever couple months. Must be nice. They still drive their stupid fast cars on the streets though. But they are smart enough not to show their *** in public.

EDIT: They have more to live for than driving. Owning a fast car to them is just a luxury they enjoy. It's not their reason for existence. Some have the fast exotic cars just because they can, and for no other reason. I know an old man that's dying from cancer. He drives his Lamborghini to church on Sunday at about 11 miles per hour. He has more money than anything else.
