What's the ultimate rich kid car?S

Sure, we all wish our parents could have written a check for our dream car on our 16th birthdays (instead of for that $500 beater). But only some of us had that privilege. What's the ultimate rich kid car?

Naturally, this question depends on the decade one went to high school, so the answers can span years. But for me, the answer is obvious as the giant bow on its hood. Chevrolet Corvette. Somehow, no matter where you grew up in the U.S., there's always some spoiled kid who gets a 'Vette way too early in life. And that's strange, because it's probably his dad who really wanted it. Still, the kid gets to burn around town, and dad gets to borrow it when the kid gets grounded for something, which is inevitable. It's a win-win.
