    Yesterday I was hanging around with this girl, a $2M Maybach passed by. I almost broke my neck, she on the other hand (like most females) didn't appreciate the car, and was one of those... "Meh..." things...

    So my question is... from YOUR point of view... (this question is for everyone).

    Let's say you are talking to someone...
    Which car has more value, without knowing anything else BUT the name...

    "I have a...."

    1A) Aston Martin
    1B) Maserati

    2A) Ferrari
    2B) Lamborghini

    3A) Mercedes
    3B) Audi

    4A) Lexus
    4B) BMW

    5A) Jaguar
    5B) Porsche


    Either A or B for all 4, which one 'seems to have more value' without knowing anything else but the name?

    I don't know much about cars and value and what not, but I'd say A, A, B, A.

    A all the way!

    Hehe.

    But I am pretty sure it depends on where you live?

    Aston martin is well known in the UK so more people would recognise it than a Maserati, for example.

    Just a theory.

    Ahhh, a lot of different opinions...
    No one can agree on one over the other 100%

    Answer is definitely
    1) A . Aston Martin
    2) B. Lamborghini
    3) A. Mercedes
    4) B. BMW
    This is in regard to common body types for example ( Audio A8 compared to Bmw 750). Question is very vague though :)

    Honestly, it's really hard to say, there are many different factors and different people have different likes and dislikes.

    The whole point of this question is if you are talking to someone, and they say

    "I have an friend with a BWM, and a friend with Lexus" -- Which one you think is more expansive? Just by the perceived name value

    Of course this would all depend on the model and trim of each manufacturer you have noted and if we are talking street legal. I grabbed the price points from the most expensive models of each. Since I am the kind of guy that likes to have a certain amount knowledge on the subject before bullshitting my way through a conversation, here ya go.

    1(a) - Aston Martin Super Sport = $9.6 million (fast as fuck)
    1(b) - Maserati MC12 Corse = $2.2 million (super sexy)

    2(a) Ferrari 250 GTO (1962-1964) = $31.6 Million (ugly as hell IMO but super rare)
    2(b) Lamborghini Reventon = $1.34 million ( Fuck Yeah!!!)

    3(a) Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 999 Red Gold Dream Ueli Anliker = $5.88 million ( Ugliest car I have ever seen, the owner butchered it)
    3(b) Audi R8 V10 MTM Biturbo = $520,000 ( Great price point for a bad ass car, Biturbo says it all :))

    4(a) Lexus LFA Nürburgring = $465,000 ( Wicked sick, cheap as hell, Yamaha helped build the engine, boner inducing Japanese super car)
    4(b) BMW Nazca M12 (1991) = $650,000 (not exactly my cup of tea, almost looks like an Acura NSX just a bit)

    5(a) Jaguar XJ13 (1966) = $8.82 million (oldie but a goodie)
    5(b) Porsche 918 Spyder Concept (2010) = $2.35 million (Yes Please :))


    Without knowing the model that would just be crazy to guess on.

    Admit it - you don't really care about the car itself. You care about the ego boost and your dick getting bigger. As it 's been said, the difference between men and boys is that the first play with more expensive toys. :)

    If your friends didn't give a shit about a Porche, would you spend your income to buy one? Guess what, her friends, don't give a shit. ;)

    Good list. But the average bitch you wish to impress with your car probably won't appereciate the classics if you don't have price tag size of the hood stamped on them :)
