I think I'd get pissed off for spending so much money on gas. Screw the Bugatti.
If you have enough to even buy it, you won't have to worry about gas.

Whats your favorite supercar that 1:costs more than $150k 2:has over 500hp.
I only looked through the first 4 pages of this thread and didn't see what I consider a supercar. It meets the criteria as stated above. An original 1965 model sold recently at auction for $2.4 million, so it's a tad over the $150k requirement. I'm not sure of the actual horsepower, either. What they were rated at back then was around 500+hp, but it was a conservative estimate.

The car? 1965 Shelby 427 AC Cobra. All those other Italian, German, British wondercars certainly have lots of glitz, glamour and sex appeal, but nothing as visceral as this beast. The thing only weighs 2200 pounds (the engine/trans is almost 1/4 of that), and until the Aston Martin DB-4 came along, was the undisputed 0-100-0 champ (12.2 seconds). Think of a car the size of a Miata doing that.
