Most $$ Car You Have Been On

Wed Feb 25, 2004 7:47 am

Just wondering what is the most expensive automobile that you have taken a ride in, yours or not.

I mean an actual ride in and not a taking a picture of you next to it at the parking lot.

For me it would prob a Lexus LX450.
Step into my office, baby

Not sure the most expensive one in the list, but definately one of those: 2004 Porsche 911 (996) Turbo Cabriolet, 2003 Porsche Cayenne Turbo or 2002 Ferrari 360 F1 spider (all three are family owned)
Falcon....like a limo but with wings

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.

I do not know the exact price of each one but I have sat in the passenger seat of a Porsche Boxter S 2001 model and driven a BMW M5 2003 model. Anybody know how much they are worth ?

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
all best; jack

My aunt owned a Bentley Continental in the late 80s that I rode in a few times. I have no idea what model year it was, but I imagine it cost $150k+.

I don't know how much its worth, but probably a Mercedes Benz 550SEC. I think it was a 12-cylander and ran around $100-$150K. My buddy that worked in a stereo retails was installing the sound system.

1996 993 Porsche Twin Turbo - 100+ Grand
Lotus Esprit - 78 Grand
Acura NSX - 89 Grand

Are a couple of the most $$ but the 2 most expensive were a 2004 Mercedes Benz S600, I believe that listed for about 140 grand
And the Grand winner was a 2003 Maybach 57 which stickered at $305,000

Oh, and when I was buying my car the dealer let me rev an 02 Ferrari 550 Maranello, that was pretty sweet.

When I was little in Florida, one of my rich friend's father had a Lamborghini. He used to drive us around in it, we both had to share the passenger seat as there was no backseat... One hell of a ride though!!

One just like the one KLM777 posted, a bright red Ferrari Testarossa. Also a Ferrari Daytona before that. I'm not up on the book values though so I don't know which is more pricey. As far as just being in as in sitting I sat in a new Porsche Carrera super-expensive $130k + model...don't remember exactly what it's called. It was on the showroom floor.  Smile What is really scary is there was another 911, used but still pretty pricey, for sale at the dealership where I bought my car. The guy who sold me my vehicle told me that they'd be willing to finance me to buy it. And people wonder why there are so many folks owing waayyyy too much debt out there.

Among the most expensive cars that ive been in. One of them would be a BMW Z8 but that car was fetched at much higher then MSRP when it originally came out in 2001. If i recall correctly the Taiwanese kid who owned it told me he got it for $150,000. My cousin had a Porsche Twin Turbo (996) in Boston and with all the taxes and everything he paid it settled around $130,000.
In Pakistan however the cars are much more expensive then most countries in the world, thanks to 200%+ taxes (depending on the type of cars). A family friend recently imported the one and only 2004 BMW 645i in Karachi. It cost him around $175,000. A fully equiped Land Cruiser settles around $110K-$120K easily in Pakistan now that the duty on diesel jeeps has been reduced slightly.
