    Cool Supercar Ownership Costs

    Fun article:

    http://www.roadandtrack.com/features...=1459_71009804

    Not a supercar in the league of a F1 or a CGT, but these costs are one of the reasons I've strongly considered an NSX - $40K, cheap to maintain, very reliable and it looks like a supercar (and is fun to drive).

    Mostly labour, then expensive oil and custom made oil filters.

    I suppose if it takes a couple hours to do the oil change and they probably charge like $500/hr just because they're the only ones that can do it just about.
