Why do people insist on buying supercars if they'll never be driven faster than a station wagon?

Most people just buy them for bragging rights.
Unless you're gonna be going on a track to race, there really is no point in spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a car that will get the same use as any other car.

That's like buying a spaceship just to sit in it. Not saying they shouldn't be bought or driven at all, just saying that people buy cars that can hit well over 200mph, are purely race built and have so much more potential that's being wasted. Not to be a dick, but 90 isn't fast for a Ferrari...I've done that in my v6 pickup lol.

You do know the Bugatti veyron isnt "race built" It was built just to prove that they could make a car which could have 1000 horse power, it handles fairly well but wouldn't suit race conditions.

Funny because the Bugatti Veyron isn't exactly race built, it's an almost 2 tonne Grand Tourer that just happens to be able to go 253 miles per hour.

That's funny because any vehicle built to reach that speed and still maintain handling and stability is clearly race ready.

Do you even know what race ready means?

Ready to compete. If one was to build a car that could reach these speeds and not consider it a competition ready vehicle, there is a problem.

A competition ready car is light, has a roll cage, need racing tires and many other modifications to conform to certain homologation rules. The Veyron can never race in stock form, simply because it wasn't built to race. It can beat some race cars, but it's not race ready at all.

For example, the Ferrari 458 Italia. By your logic, it's race ready the way it is. But they have to modify it to race it, hence there's the Ferrari 458 Challenge, Ferrari 458 GT2 and GT3. Yes, the road car can reach high speeds, but it's built for the road, not competition. You need so many changes to make it ready for competition.

Racing takes many forms, obviously the lighter and specific race tuned cars will stomp a Veyron. But I wasn't specifically talking about the Veyron in my first comment, but I do know that it's not technically a race made care, but could easily compete if one could set the car up for the race of choice.
