Expensive College Student Cars

It is that time of the year where students are or have recently taken their final exams for the Fall semester / quarter. I am also seeing more cars in the area (I live very close to a college campus) than usual and especially expensive ones at that.

I made a thread about recently spotting a BMW i8


Someone spotted these super cars at GWU


McLaren MP4-12C at University of Oregon


What kind of expensive cars have seen around campus?

When I was at Virginia Tech there was an Asian guy with an Audi TTRS and another Asian guy with a 997 Porsche GT3. There was also a Middle Eastern guy who had a Lamborghini Gallardo.

Here in Boston theres some weird asian car club where they all have the same stuffed turtle thing on the dashboard. At my school alone theres a mp4-12c, a few r8's, a few maserati's, some 911t's, couple GTR's, a ton of M's and AMG's...it's ridiculous

Some kid at my school has a new Quattroporte, another has a new M4.





I have a 13 y/o 3 series so I'm kind of a big deal.

At my school most Asians of other nationalities, and the ones that are more assimilated, don't go overboard displaying their (parents) opulence. If they do have more than your average 3rd gen taurus, its something more tasteful, and not out-of-your-reach-peasant expensive.

nikkeiS2K, I would give props to the 550/575 owner...Other cars are meh

Cayenne and Lancer are owned by Chinese kids. So is Audi. Have no idea if the Lancer is an Evo or not.

My BMW makes me look like a filthy peasant tho. And I've taken my mom's 2012 civic once. Was so baller.

Culturally, Asians care more about the outward appearance of wealth and prestige, the old style over substance mantra, especially FOB Chinese. Hang out in any asian-centric town and you'll see old ass ladies driving the top end AMG cars because they're the most expensive of that model and not because they care about the engine.

I went to college with a few kids (caucasian) that came from serious money, you would never know it by the cars they drove.
The ones with the nice cars were there filling space to get their degree, more than willing to live off their trust funds than give a **** about actually working for a living.
