A modern classic sports car

I am thinking of buying something silly, fun and unusual.

I have looked at: Maserati 3200 2001, Aston Martin DB7 3.2 2004, Jaguar XK8.

Any other ideas?

A friend of mine has the Maserati, uses it as a daily driver, and has done for at least a couple of years. But he is lucky with cars. Avoid DB7 automatics. They had a horrible old box. XKs much better in this respect.

Still a head-turner and now cheaper than ever. Refined, sporting drive. Luxurious feel to the cabin.
