Illustration for article titled What Is The Most Blatant Status-Symbol Car?

Today is the anniversary of the founding of the Bentley Motor Company, which has made its name providing transportation for the rich and showy from the Bentley Boys to Diddy. What's the ultimate rich-guy showoff car?

If you want to trumpet your newfound UHNWI status as loudly and garishly as possible, we respectfully recommend the Lamborghini Murciélago Spyder. It's noisy, it's flashy, it's the descendant of a long and storied line of nouveaux-riche-mobiles, and little else announces that the owner wishes to combine maximum cost and minimum practicality quite like this. Fluorescent colors not mandatory, but worth consideration.
