Even with skill, there are few instances where owners can safely/legally take the car to it's potential (e.g. on the track).

As the saying goes, it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.

yeah, here are some cheap and slow cars, they do not have V12 like Lambo or Ferrari or paddle shift that takes 50 milli-second or something but you can't say these are not fun, especially on the street.

My point is, when I see BONE STOCK Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Bugatti, whatever, they do look fucking boring. They're probably not much of a car enthusiast.
Go to a car show and see how much attention BONE STOCK Lambos will get.

Maybe Caterham Super Seven if you're looking for something more raw.

Sure, Aventador can do 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and go up to 350km/h.
Has blazing fast paddle shift, electronic stability control, premium sound system, expensive leather bucket seats, etc.

But in the end Ferrari and Lambo are simply overkill if you're simply just looking for driving pleasure.
In summary I think a lot of people just buy them for bragging rights, status, luxury, etc.
Aventador? Blazing fast paddle shift?

The fucking wing probably made it too top heavy so it flipped off the flatbed.

oh wait maybe not...

"Unlike the dual-clutch automatic in the M3, the IS-F employs an eight-speed automatic transmission which isn’t as quick but does shift seamlessly."

I have the biggest hard on for RWB's but that wing extension is just flat out retarded.
The whale tail is aggressive enough as it is.
