Everyday equivalents? EVERYDAY equivalents? You have to either be raking in so much money hand over fist that you're completely out of touch, or smoking some serious crack (rhetorically,) to think that the cars listed in this article are even remotely "everyday" cars.
So what would your article for the average joes of the world be called? "Exotic cars and their crappy, bottom of the barrel equivalents?"
Seriously? SERIOUSLY MSN? Between this and how celebrities' daily lives grab so many headlines, mainstream media makes me sick to my stomach today. Journalism? What's that?
I have seen two of the everyday equivalent cars around my small town and they are owned by the doctors and lawyers. I suppose that the enexspisive to one is a furtone to another. Like one post I read from "Blue2010SRT" there are cars that are faster and cost less then what is given. It didnt mention the Ariel Atom "Base Price $49,980", the Honda S2000 " $37,995", the Porsche Boxter " $48,100.00". Around the $50,000.00 range is what i would want to pay on something that looks sporty and would probably just sit there half the time because I'm to affraid that it mite get scratched up. You would have expected the Chevy Corvette would have been in this, "starting price $49,525"
Veyron SS is... ...the fastest production car in the world, by a large margin
So we now know that the definition of "a large margin" is 8mph. Both the Hennessey Venom GT and the Koenigsee Agera R have already been tested at 260. And both are much "cheaper" (said tongue-in-cheek) than the Veyron. But then again, the purpose of these cars, since I expect no owner will ever see anywhere near top speed, is to be able to say "I own the most expensive car in the world, which currently is also the fastest".
If you consider an $80K car an "everyday" car, that's great. But understand that most of us do not, and we feel it is an insult, in a time when so many people are struggling, to have our faces rubbed in that fact.
(And just HOW much are journalists making these days, anyways?!?!?)
