£40,000 of why?
How rich do you have to be to blow a years worth of take home on a crap car? And that's assuming you have a "Good Job in London" sort of take home.
Or to put it another way - that's about 1/10 of the amount you need to stick away to be able to retire and live comfortably off the interest.
Anybody who is smart enough to get the sort of job where they can buy one of these must see the point of not spending the money on one and going home to play instead?
I can see the point of a Maclaren F1. If you were friends with Mr Putin, and as a result now own Belarus, then you can buy a £1M car with the interest earned in the time it takes you to choose the colour. But people with more money than God are not buying a Lexus SUV.
