As of right now its a Bentley Arnage. The owner of a dealership drove me in it. It was too sweet. The most expensive one I ride in every day is a friends S500. I also know somebody getting a Ferrari 360 Spider and I will get to ride in that in a few weeks when it comes in. Im too excited about that one!

The most expensive car I've driven is a fully original 1966 Shelby Cobra 427. Immaculate condition, looked like it had just come out of the factory even though it was over 35 years old. Valued in the $500-600,000 range.

When I visited Canada, a friend of a friend took his customised, souped-up Drag Racer to a show. He took me for a ride in it on the way home, and the acceleration was so fierce my head literally snapped back into the metal bar behind me. It was powered by - I seem to recall - TWO 5.7-litre supercharged Chevrolet V12s.

My grandpa used to own a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, not sure of the model year, but he bought it around 1987 and kept it until the early 90's. Too much $$$ for maintenance apparently, but it was fun while it lasted. He actually used to let me drive it around the land he owned in Mississippi, with a phone book on the front seat so that I could reach the pedals.

The two most expensive cars I have been in were a mid-90's Mercedes-Benz SL600. Being the geek that I am, I even video taped a good part of that ride! lol. The other car would be a 2002 Porsche 911 Twin Turbo.
One car, that by today's standards is not that expensive, that I have been in numerous times many years ago, was an early 80's Ferrari 308 GTS. That car was a beauty!

I've been lucky enough to drive, albeit for short periods, a lot of Ford and GM past (and some REALLY past) prototypes. Most were cool - but old Firebird Turbine cars were, literally, very hot - but they all are fond memories and dollar values can't probably be calculated. On the more norm, my ex-bosses' TestaRossa was probably the highest dollar vehicle I have ever had for more than a week. A total kick, yes, but if I had to spend a lot of time with a 2-seater day-to-day "driver", something like a good ole/new Corvette would be just fine, thank you.
I must confess I'd like to spend some time in a newer high dollar performance sedan like a
Mercedes or BMW; I am entirely sure I'd be impressed and "sort of" envy owners of such. Regrad..Jack
