In the last decade there has truly been only one car to spearhead the luxury GT cruiser market and it didn’t come from Germany but rather across the water in neighboring England, where Bentley Motors launched what would be their best selling car ever with the introduction of the Bentley Continental GT. This car catapulted into the mainstream with stunning looks, extreme comfort, state of the art technology, raw power, and everything else you’d expect from a bespoke hand-crafted car. As a result of the success of the Bentley Continental GT, Bentley was able to bounce back from consecutive years of financial losses. With the car approaching the end of its life cycle, we thought we would share our experiences after buying a Supersports edition in our comprehensive Bentley Continental GT buyers guide.
In all my past articles, I always write about the current best cars in different segments so that others can enjoy some of today’s nicest exotics without any costs for a year or two. However, I do, from time to time, receive emails from readers that say they love what they buy way too much to get rid of it in a year. For those of you who like to hold on to a car more than 5 years and don’t want to drop over a million dollars on a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari LaFerrari, or McLaren P1, here are a few examples of some of the nicest exotics that have hit rock bottom and that will continuing to appreciate. These are what I call modern classics.
If you follow our method of buying and selling exotic cars for a profit, then you know that part of the equation is to find makes and models that have already taken the maximum beating allowed based on our calculations, and as a result won’t be going much lower from an age standpoint. The only variables that remain in play are condition, mileage and history. These cars listed below have already taken their main depreciation and won’t be losing their value anytime soon on the basis of age, which makes them the perfect cars to profit from, or should we say enjoy then profit from. Make sure you stick to the baselines we discuss so you buy the right ones, and not anyone.
Here we are again with another case study. This time we’re going to cover my favorite car – the Aston Martin DBS. It is so much a favorite that I actually own two of them, a 2009 Infa Red six-speed and a 2011 Lighting Silver automatic. After having owned a DB9, multiple Vantages, and most recently these two DBS cars, I have somewhat become an expert on not only the market in general for the Aston Martin marque, but also on the reliability issues and common problems. With ownership under my belt, I’ve decided to put together a buyers guide but also share my experiences thus far.
In March 2015, a group of normal car enthusiasts decided to get together for some afternoon fun. A spirited drive through South Florida’s amazing highways landed the group in this amazing private airport. Over $10 million in cars combined made this a day to be remembered. Insane cars, insane fun, and plenty of helicopter support to really capture the event. While most people think that events like these are strictly for fun, this is an indirect way many people use to network and get to know one another, creating not only great friendships but also moving business forward in many basis.Hope you enjoy this pictures and make sure to follow us @icreatemillionaires on Instagram for live updates from future events we attend or organize in FL or LA.
Kline Innovation may be the new kids on the block in the supercar exhaust industry, but we have been seriously impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the designs, as well as some seriously impressive sounds in some of their recent videos. Their exhausts have become world renowned in the Porsche community and they’ve disrupted other exotic car brands in three quick years. We decided to take a moment to learn more about the guys behind Kline Innovation and what makes their exhaust systems rival the best brands out there.
You may have noticed that we recently introduced Exotic Car Secrets, our system that allowed us to drive over a dozen exotic and luxury cars in the past two years without losing any money. While early on you are taught that cars are a depreciating asset and should not be looked at as an investment, we think they should be looked at as a business. There are so many ways for a person to buy, drive, and enjoy the car of their dreams and actually never really lose any money doing so. Imagine driving a BMW M6 for less than it would cost you to lease a new Volkswagen Jetta, or perhaps actually get paid to drive an Aston Martin V8 Vantage or Audi R8. Many exotic car owners already use this system to switch in/out of cars every six months or so. While not every single car makes us money, they sure don’t cost us much.
