Buying a new toy, need opinion?

So the time has come where Im looking into buying an "exotic" car, for me anyway its up there! Ive had multiple BMW's from M3s, X5s 335i's few regular 3 series to an M5 and M6. I will forever be a BMW guy for life but I do want a change for my weekend car.
These are the choices Ive narrowed down to,
06-08 Bentley Gt
04-06 Lamborghini Gallardo
08-10 Audi R8
09-12 Nissan GTR

Im not so much into the speed anymore, I do occasionaly drive like a ***127814; but only when necessary and its safe! Looking for any opinions or comments, thought about the maserati gt or an aston martin but ehh would love to hear your thoughts!

Going used here because I do work on all my vehicles so maintenance and getting parts isnt an issue(yes even the exotic cars, I have buddies who work on them daily in case I have trouble)

Why not go for something less played out? GTR's and Lambo's are cool and all, but lets be serious there's better luxury cars out there.

I hope your idea of safe is more accurate than your idea of necessary. Driving like a **** is neither.

Bently GT ftw!

Just poking fun at you. Of the four cars you list, which is the most reliable? I think that's a relative qualification. The most reliable car I've ever owned was a 2000 Toyota Sienna. I like the E46 because is super easy to get around with a wrench (and it's fun to drive).

I put just short of 200,000 miles on the Sienna in ten years with very little maintenance. I wouldn't wish that vehicle on my worst enemy. It was great for its purpose, but the fun factor was below zero.
