... Which begs the question: what the fuck is "affordable" for a Lamborghini? Oh, wait, key word in there: more affordable.

Regardless, nothing will ever beat the now out of production Ferrari F50, for me at least. This fucking thing redefined "excess." Its looks are exotic as hell. For cars, exotic is good. As Newsradio taught us, this is in contrast to when you say a woman's looks are "exotic," which is actually just a polite way of calling her ugly.

Anyway, back to the F50. I remember reading an article on these things a few years ago. Ferrari (supposedly) wouldn't even sell you one unless if you already owned two Ferraris - they wanted to try and reduce the chances that you were just looking to re-sell it. Then, you had to plop down 250 grand for the down payment. Payments were about $5,000 a month, with the car in the end costing $450,000 (maybe more). Oh, and did I mention that was merely a lease plan with an option to buy at the end? A fucking LEASE.

I'm sure it will come as no surprise that I so totally wanted one of these fucking things.
