Factor #3, and perhaps also the main factor, is that investors have been out of places to park their money for quite some time now. Fine art, wine, and cars was and has been the golden ticket, but it will soon collapse in a not so dramatic fashion as interest rates go up, economic zones recover, sanctions are lifted,… » 1/28/15 3:26pm Wednesday 3:26pm

I wholly agree with E.Julius' comment. I've driven all 4 of those cars and the Lamborghini Spyder is by far the best choice for parading around Monte-Carlo.

I bought mine in 2013 for under $30k. Original price was $146,xxx in Canadian funds. High mileage, though. Since then I've spent quite a chunk on maintenance and tires, but its been worth it in terms of $$$ spent per km. I put 18,000 kms on it this past summer alone. » 12/12/14 7:42pm 12/12/14 7:42pm
