Its a fair comment about the Aston though. In the same way that R8 owners are defensively myopic over their super/sports cars, Aston owners are desperate to let you know they absolutely don't want to be Bond. At all. Not even a little bit.Just no, OK...dont even ask them!
I've owned three Astons, and I absolutely wanted to be Bond!

Are you sure, as a Ferrari driver, you want to get into driver stereotypes? That’s some thin ice you’re skating on.

Interesting thread.

It seems that rarity is one of the key factors for supercar definition , hence the R8 "dropping down" to sports car status.

How about an Ariel Atom?
It doesn't hit the price marker, being about half the price of the R8, but the performance is superior to the R8 and is much rarer and more impractical.
Supercar ??

Ariel’s garner respect across all the car categories surely?

My record is not much better and maybe worse. I do enjoy these "it's a supercar, no it's not " threads. However I think the OP wanted to daily a special/supercar.
