But in most cases people buy the cars for their own driving pleasure and they use it the way they enjoy it.
They might be gaining more pleasure by driving the car slow than to give it the beans and risking it all.

why would be a person buying this car be a "Moron" as stated by some fellow bhpians? Maybe he is an enthusiast. I really cannot understand such people.

He would definetely not be a Moron who has such amount of money. But what is debating here is comparo between views, calling it, Status symbol vs. Enthusiasm, which is completely Off topic.

If i am not wrong the GT2 RS is the fastest production vehicle to do a lap aroung the RING. 7 min 18 secs. It doesnt get better than this. A few cars slower than the GT2 RS are the Maserati MC12, the Enzo, the Viper SRT10, the Nissan GTR, Carrera GT and everything else.
Quite an achievement.
