If you want a midlife car get a sports car. Something fast loud with a lot of horsepower.

GT500
Terminator
Corvette
Camaro ZL1
Roush
Chevelle
Did you not read the OP and see he only wants a European car?

Lucky for you the news is youíre quite unlikely to be gifted a CL65 by me ... or anyone else.

If you think $10k a year is a lot for maintenance btw itís actually only 4% of list at current $.

I donít know of too many 621hp performance cars that have costs that low.

I just like to stretch out and not have a console restricting my movements. Column shifters are just the way to go.
Not expensive but still kind of a frivolous expense. My current car( Kia Soul) is practical, reliable and a great daily driver. I always wanted a 96 Impala even if it is only a 5 seater. And I watch "Supernatural" and their Impala reminds me of our 60s Chevy when I was a kid. That was a Biscayne, just a basic sedan but the room it had compared to today....
And I had a 60s Buick which was a land yacht. What a beast.

What about a Caddy ?

but if a 96’ Impala is your thing then this is about the cleanest I’ve ever seen...

All nice cars, opins and ideas in this thread...the only pause I give is where the OP lives, eg Florida.

We have an EscapeWinter house here in SW FL for past 13 'winters', and the cool to exotic car popl. is considerable, but I don't get 'where they get driven' for fun: lots of stop and go, serious azz traffic in 'season', long stoplights to idle at, few really empty roads to crank it up on, and barely a curve in the entire state.

We drive 2 of our 3 cars down every November, (two are old and one of the 'older cars' is usually in need of attention here locally), but while my fave car is my '02 VetteVert, I find that driving around in it in this state is very ho hum.

Nice winter weather, et al but really 'fun cars' are not so fun here in the straight line, curve less state, other than for cruising and showing up at cars & coffee, etc.

NEway, hope the OP gets what he wants. Leaving an extra $50 or $100Gs for the Kidz isn't necessary.
GL, mD

My midlife crisis vehicle is a Kia Soul. Best car I've ever had, and I've owned most except a Porsche, or other exotic sportscar. Vette, Mercedes, Alfa, F-350, Broncos, VW Bug, various Cadillacs and Lincolns, even an old style mid-60's Rolls. Bought and sold them all for years.

The Kia Soul meets all my needs. If your lucky, you can get one with a standard like I found.

That would be my choice. Car is absolutely gorgeous and totally impractical (for me). Still may end up buying one though.

A TT-RS does fit in that category. 0-60 in 3.5-4.0 second depending on source, 400 HP, easy 12 second car in quarter mile.
