Outgoing SMRT CEO, Saw Phaik Hwa, must be the envy of many car enthusiasts. She earned $1.85 million in year 2010 and owns two luxury cars, namely a Ferrari California and Mercedes-Benz S500L. She can choose to enjoy some topless fun in the prancing horse or get pampered in the luxurious S-Class sedan.
The combined cost of both cars comes close to about $1.3m. I guess I won’t even come close to buying one of those in my life time. But supposed if MyCarForum starts paying me $1.85m per year for blogging (ok, I know I am dreaming), here’s 2 rides that I hope to get: The Audi RS3 Sportback
Rich or poor, I do not fancy driving a big bulky machine that is so hard to maneuver in and out of tight parking lots. The car of my choice should be fast, nibble, and of impeccable built quality inside out. Measuring 4.3m in length with a 2.5L 340 bhp five-pot engine, the Audi RS3 Sportback fits the bill perfectly. 0 to 100km/h is completed in 4.6 seconds, making it faster than Miss Saw’s S500L. The Mercedes SLK350 BlueEfficiency
Since I am supposed to earn $1.85m a year, I should pamper myself with a stylish convertible as well. My choice would be the SGcarmart “2011 Sports Convertible of the Year”, the Mercedes SLK350. I am particularly attracted to its SLS-inspired nose and the innovative Magic Sky Control system. Powered by a 3.5L V6, the 4.1 meter compact Mercedes completes the century sprint in just 5.6 seconds which is quick enough for me.
A quick punch at the calculator shows that the combined cost of my dream rides is about $566K at existing COE price. Although they cost less than Miss Saw's $1.3m collection, I am more than satisfied to have them in my garage.
What are your dream cars if you were drawing $1.85m a year?
