Spectra, I agree with you... I'm not a car person. But: people spend money on what they what to spend money on. To you and me, a $300K car is superfluous. but to someone who makes a lot of money and loves cars -- and can afford it, why not? If we only bought things for practicality, there wouldn't be any market for luxery goods (purses, shoes,etc)
