I'd easily put money in on that... the man clearly has good taste even if the car isn't in his future. I sold two in the past month though and I'll tell you first hand they're surprisingly affordable on the secondary market. Unlike a Spyderco knife, super luxury and super sport cars lose worth quicker than Kirstie Alley loses inches. I'm driving a Mercedes S550 right now that when new in 2007 it sold for $115,000. Now 5 years later with 60k miles on it, it can be had for no more than $40,000. Those are prices that should push people out of a hobby or interest any day.

In my line of work and in my personal life, that makes a good day for me.
...I have no knives I keep in a safe but there are one or two that don't leave the house...
