Definitely not. Used r8's depending upon mileage, year, etc. are 100k and up, especially if you want a newer one with a warranty.

It depends on what you are more focused on when it comes to buying your next car. If it is the money then by all means go with the corvette. I think corvettes are great cars, I am a huge fan of the ZR1, but they will not do the job as far as dropping PANTIES for these two reasons... maybe even more. 1. ANYONE CAN AFFORD A CORVETTE NOWADAYS. 2. MID LIFE CRISES GUYS ONLY BY CORVETTES. the second reason is what most of society thinks when they see a person driving a corvette. Including the ones who are looking to have there PANTIES dropped.
Now if you are focused on something fun to drive and a PANTY dropper on top of that! you need to spend $20 to 25k more on a different car (Aston Martin, Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari) now you may need to spend about $60k more on a Ferrari. prices are starting to go up on those cars.
These are great cars especially the v8 vantage, TIMELESS ELEGANCE! this is a really fun car to drive and they will get a lot of attention from the LADIES. don't believe me? watch the James Bond movies and check for yourself. The ugliest person in the world could be in a nice tuxedo, driving this car and get some attention.
these cars are also great for attention, BEST EXHUAST NOTE I HAVE HEARD FROM A V8! but it is not a Ferrari and those cars speak for themselves, hence the reason why values are rising on the Pre-Owned models such as the F430.
I work for a Premier Auto Group that heavily specilzes in selling Luxury and exotic cars new and Pre-owned, so tell what you want and I will find it for you.
Message me for more info.

About the $60k bracket - my friend just bought a brand new red C7 (also reason I got my C6Z). I drove that thing from Boston to NYC, through Times Sq and back to Boston. I can't count how many times people took a picture of it or yelled to rev it up. It's super comfortable and I would say as good of a daily driver as a GTR would be.

Thanks for all the good info... Im thinking either a Quattroporte or C7 now... Any input between the 2?

Unless you want a daily driver that you can take to the track on the weekends go with the Maserati. Don't get me wrong--The C7 is sick and is as exotic as you can get in comparison to previous Vette models. The prevailing factor here, at least with me, is the fact that every time I've gone to buy another car I always looked at a Vette and walked away short-changed because I'm a man that leads a complicated life.
It would be nice to wisk away down the highway with only a briefcase and a cup of coffee but at any point in time I may want to pick up a life-sized vase or some kind of lawn equipment or diving gear or whatever large item that one obviously can't handle in a Vette. I also take long, long trips from time-to-time and a Vette just won't do it. You're only going to be able to lean back so far in a two-seater. As far as everyday driving goes you're going to get the same kind of performance from a Quattroporte as you will a Vette but you'll be more comfortable and stylish with the Quattroporte.
The image factor: If you're looking to get fanboys to give you the thumbs up, then drive a Vette. If you want to get the respect of businessmen, then get a Maserati. You're going to get an entirely different conversation at the cigar shop if you drive up in a Maserati than if you drive up in a Vette. People will take you more seriously in a Maserati. However, if you drive up in a Vette you're going to be labeled as someone that's looking for a party 24-7.
The panty-dropper factor:
If you want to pick up chicks like this, then get a Vette.
If you want to pick up a woman like this, then get a Maserati.Any Questions?

A $60k Ferrari? Not exceeding $5k of annual maintenance? Must be like a 348 or something.
