This.I think it is as much how you feel about yourself as the car makes you appear. I think owning a Lambo is a way to outwardly show that you are successful. I don't like to talk about money to friends nor wear flashy clothes or jewelry. Only my best friend knows my true income. I have helped him greatly increase his income and net worth by just setting goals and thinking bigger so when alone we share secrets. I always downplay the lambo with everyone else. Keeps the vultures at bay. Lee
The first thing people ask me is "how much did you PAY for that!?" I downplay the elusiveness and associated wealth assumption with the "man, I wish I could have flat out paid for it, but financing definitely helps!" It's crazy, everyone knows the whole world primarily finances vehicles, but when it comes to these cars the general public has this idea that the bulk of us just wrote a check (let alone a wire) for $250k, $450k, etc. I tell everyone I finance my perf even though I bought it outright lol.
