I never liked aston martin that much I don't know why, but I know lamborghini gets more attention than aston martin. I'm still leaning towards gallardo because even old lambos (diablo / countach) are still work over 100k. This is where I want to go http://www.lambonb.com/LeaseSpecial.html After thinking it over, I don't like how the bentley sales guy is being very pushy with me and the fact they can't extend the deal until after the hollidays since I'm very busy right now. I thought it was cool they cover service for 1 year though but ahh, no biggie. Plus the warranty is only 3 years 36k miles and their lease is for 4 years. I'd have to get rid of it or buy another warranty for a year at $6k or so. Those other cars everyone listed, there is no lease special on those. I want to lease to write off through my business, and warranty is important to me, like just dropping the car off, letting them service / fix it than pick it up. My time is very limited.

My 04 Volvo certainly has some mystical female attracting powers. People like the look, and to girls it says, "what a sensible guy, driving a Volvo that's 3" off the ground in Vermont". Plus you get that almost sleeper benefit, nobody expects the Volvo! Then you get them inside and they can't deny the gorgeous peanut butter leather!

I have an idea - and a freind who did this. Get to know your local Ferrari dealer well - give them $1,000,000 cash to do as they please. It will allowe them to allocate new cars and build inventory, title to you, you put a few miles on them and then they flip them for a nice profit. You get to drive new cars all the while not getting too bored. If you really like one, say a 2013 458, keep it on a converted lease. The chicks spending their waitress tips looking for a sugar daddy will no doubt take notice to the guy who always has a new/different but awesome F-car.

This is a serious suggestion btw.

Why are you asking a group of grown men (mostly) what kind of car is going to get you poontang.

Shouldn't you be asking the girls? Rent each one for a weekend and find out for you self. But take pics. Once you take care of business give them a survey card and find out using collected data.

We are rebuilding a Murcielago here if you're interested, it will go for sale, black and white. There is also a yellow Gallardo but it needs a new crankshaft. This is all in Dante Credaro's workshop.

Murcielago? They quit making those in 2010 - only poor people drive those in LA.

Get a classic Lamborghini. My neighbor had a late 80's countach, when he pulled it out and started it up, every teenage boy in the neighborhood took notice. He moved out, but a new guy in the neighborhood has a Diablo and a lotus espree.

The classics are timeless, especially thos of us that grew up in the 80's.

Neil, as one of the only other single guy on this site that gets as much tail as you, I would skip the old man Bentley. That look like a classy vw. The Lamborghini is what girls because it looks good to them but a lot of people think they suck including me. No heritage in that brand. The Ferrari 458 is way classier and holds its value and heritage better.

But then again east coast women are different than west coast women. A nice single speed bike over here would get way hotter girls than a Lamborghini any day of the week. It all depends in the crowd you are going after.

Neil doesn't like girls born in the 80's.

If you really want pussy get a puppy, it doesn't matter all girls love puppies.

That's too bad. East coast ladies are definitely attracted to Defenders. You should move.

Yeah I'm getting a lot of seconds thoughts about the Bentley, plus I don't like being rushed. I think I will give it some thought until after New Year. Screw the Bentley, its nice but yeah, its an old man car.
