I don't know. "sign a million dollar contract to play disc golf" seems like sound advice to me.

The upside of a car like that is it generally holds its value. Two year old versions with 5-10k on them list for ~170 range.

Not a money maker for sure, but taken care of it's not a loser either.

1mil for 4 years and spend one of those years on a single car is not smart money management.

Nice purchase. Not sure I'd've bought a McLaren over a Lambo in this situation (both for resale and reliability sake), but this isn't that bad of a purchase. He likely won't lose that much on it when it's time to sell unless the model is a total failure for the company. Supercars (Maserati, Rover, and Jaguar don't count in this category) rarely suffer the same depreciation "mortals' cars" do.

Plus... unless he dials back his touring quite a bit, its not like he's gonna have a lot of time to drive the thing.

Nah, he's going to get the thing wrapped in Discraft logos and use it as his full time touring vehicle.

Not much leg room in there for sleeping.
