Oh, so now the Sultan of Brunei is a poor man?

Well I think this thread is dead already.

Well Sultan of Brunei is not the final word in choice of cars, and Mugen NS-X is by no means cheap, not even NS-X is for that matter but cost has no bearing on the performance of reputation of a sports car.

"Poor Man's" Supercar (if such a thing ever exists!) would be the Corvette Z06.

just to get things right is the ferraris, lambos, etc are supercars as a status symbol more than their actual worth in the real terms of real engine power.
The main thing in these baby's is that they create exlusivity for the owner.
If for some here - looks with power to be ahead of most sedans then the lambos ferraris rule. The Evo is out of this.

BTW i am not in anyway saying these cars are underpowered but if a Camaro, Vette, can see u way back in the rear view theres nothing like a Big Broad Smile on ur face.

Its simply awesome to hear the pipes of a Z28.

For me if its Poor Mans Supercar then the Z28 is ultimate followed by Vette, Viper.
