You're definitely right, Thinking_J. Of course, anyone who buys a $1.46 million car can probably afford a few extra sets of tires.

IF... you drive this car at the track regularly.. at anything approaching 1.6g side load spec.. It will be lucky to get 500 miles on a set of tires. The oil will still last 3,000-7,000 miles. And the tires will cost more than $500 each.

Oil changes? are still likely to cost more than $1000 each time (5-60w, premium stuff ~$280/quart last time I checked)

so.. tires are the bigger expense (if you drive the car hard).

I know .. on my sports car (modified).. 2,000 miles of life is doing good.

This car is for the guy that doesn't want to be bothered to pick up a $500 bill laying on the sidewalk.

Still .... there are worst ways to spend money!

I would have to buy new tires with every oil change.

Chuck, the guy in this video is the one I was talking about.  When he is driving the car he definately has fun.
