Audi & Porsche are the only two that aren't somewhat of shop queens once you get past their base level vehicles.

I had a Saab Viggen, with a mere 230 BHP (though people tested it higher) and a lot of torque, and my problem was there was really nowhere to drive it.  Most of the roads I travel on have speed limits of 25-35 mph.  I found myself doing double the speed limit, and then realizing I was doing that after a while.  These are road people walk and take their dogs on.  After that, I bought cheaper and slower cars. 

Unless you want to go to a track, having a car like that doesn't make sense to me.  I watch MotorWeek and my kids love The Grand Tour on Amazon, but I can't see buying a car as a daily driver that has 500-1,000 bhp.  I would use maybe 1/10 of that.

My old boss has a 2018 C class AMG cabriolet.  The C63.

Looking forward to a spin.  He told me he basically cannot let it out often. 

Love my CLK500 cabriolet.  Way less car, and easy to live with for the summer.

I drove one of these when it packed a the normally aspirated  6.3 L V-8.  it was a beast back then - I got it over 100 mph by the end of the entrance ramp to the highway.  It snarled like a bull in heat !  Great car.  I almost bought it but settled for a C7 Corvette.
