  1. #1 Default The 10 MOST Expensive Cars To Own & Drive 
    http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home...d=family-autos



    1. Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series


    Starting price: $301,750
    5-year total: $364,471
    Cost per mile: $4.86



    What pushes the Black Series up the price ladder from the SL65 AMG is the wide use of carbon-fiber body parts and some under-the-hood enhancements. Its 670-horsepower, 6-liter twin-turbo V-12 slingshots this two-seater to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. It's also loaded to the gills with high-tech standard equipment.



    2. Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG


    Starting price: $202,825
    5-year total: $244,363
    Cost per mile: $3.26



    Capable of reaching 60 miles per hour from a standstill in just over four seconds, the S65 AMG combines opulent interior appointments with outrageously aggressive performance. It uses the same 6-liter twin-turbo V-12 found in other high-end Mercedes models but in this application it develops 604 horsepower.



    3. Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG


    Starting price: $205,575
    5-year total: $230,771
    Cost per mile: $3.08



    A strikingly handsome coupe, the CL65 AMG is more than a pretty face. Its 604-horsepower, 6-liter twin-turbo V-12 is capable of going from zero to 60 in just over four seconds. Standard gear includes a rearview camera and nighttime vision assist.



    4. Audi R8



    Starting price: $126,400
    5-year total: $159,753
    Cost per mile: $2.13



    If your goal is to get noticed, there is no surer way to do it than behind the wheel of Audi's R8. Sleek, fast and decadent, the R8 uses a mid-mounted 420-horsepower 4.2-liter V-8 to turn all four wheels. It can dash from zero to 60 in just over four seconds. Sure it's expensive, but it is arguably the most accessible exotic on the market.



    5. Porsche 911 Convertible Turbo



    Starting price: $141,650
    5-year total: $159,393
    Cost per mile: $2.13



    With an extra-cost options list as long as your arm, this two-seat drop-top offers an array of customizing choices. A 480-horsepower, 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat six-cylinder engine funnels output to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. It gets to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds.



    6. Audi A8 L W12

    Starting price: $122,625
    5-year total: $153,588
    Cost per mile: $2.05



    The "L" in its name refers to this luxury sedan's stretched wheelbase, while the "W12" indicates it packs the potent 450-horsepower, 6-liter, W-12 engine under its hood. Fewer than six ticks of the clock are needed for the A8 L W12 to reach 60 miles per hour. Among its standard features are massaging front seats and four-zone automatic climate control.



    7. Chevrolet Corvette ZR1


    Starting price: $106,620
    5-year total: $146,096
    Cost per mile: $1.95



    The Zeus of 'Vettes, the ZR1 is a supercar by any measure. Motivating it to a zero to 60 time of just over three seconds is a 638-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter, V-8. Although it doesn't possess the amount of high-end bric-a-brac many of the other entries on this list do, pound for pound and dollar for dollar it may just be the best sports car in the world.



    8. Porsche Cayenne Turbo S



    Starting price: $125,775
    5-year total: $138,613
    Cost per mile: $1.85



    The only SUV on this list, the Cayenne Turbo S packs Porsche performance into an off-road-capable all-wheel-drive uber package. Turning all four wheels is a 550-horsepower, 4.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8. Reaching 60 miles per hour from a stop takes a hair less than five seconds. A 14-speaker surround-sound audio system and a hard-drive-based navigation system are standard.



    9. BMW M6 Convertible


    Starting price: $111,725
    5-year total: $138,186
    Cost per mile: $1.84



    The high-performance version of the 6 Series, the M6 is fitted with a 500-horsepower 5-liter, V-10, providing this soft-top with zero to 60 sprints of less than five seconds. A 13-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system and adaptive xenon headlights are standard.



    10. Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG


    Starting price: $99,775
    5-year total: $137,749
    Cost per mile: $1.84



    No sedan better captures the sleek flow of a coupe's styling than the Mercedes-Benz CLS. In its hopped-up guise as the CLS63 AMG, it complements its drop-dead curb appeal with an asphalt-chomping 507-horsepower, 6.2-liter, V-8 engine. Reaching 60 miles per hour requires just a bit more than four seconds with a top speed of more than 180 miles per hour.

    Noteworthy to mention, that although your car is 4th place. It's less than twice the operating cost of 1st place. AMG Ouch Series.

    Also, I find it funny that the ZR1 is the only non-German car on the list.

    I don't think this list is accurate.

    2009 Maybach 62S
    MSRP: $448,000

    The 6 liter turbocharged AMG sourced engine produces 604 hp with 738 torque, but it doesn't go fast. In fact, it takes a whole 6 seconds to get to that speed. It's also electronically limited to 170 mph. Why, you ask? Because Maybach is all about luxury and refinement to the extreme and the Maybach is unmatched in this approach. The power is used to seemlessly accelerate the vehicle and give it power on tap when needed. Test driving one it's suggested you bring your driver. Yearly cost couldn't be calculated because it depends on how much you pay the driver.

    Yahoo and Edmunds team up to briung you more meaningless crap... wonderful.

    This list assumes that these cars will depreciate to $0 value over 5 years, and also that they will be driven 15,000 miles a year. I'd have to call bullshit on both of those assumptions used in making this list.

    As far as depreciation goes, isn't the Maybach still king? Hell, a Maybach loses more in depreciation over 2 years than a ZR1 costs to buy. Are they still making those things?

    sell your car now for the 27K its worth, buy a ruckus for 2K, put the 25K away in a secure bond or something for 2 years (while riding the ruckus) and BAM you ll have your 30K to buy the s65. i should be your financial advisor. i know things about stuff

    and hey, you might have money left over to buy me wheels
