It’s not like owning a Honda Civic or Ford Taurus, that’s for sure.

Most people never get the chance to get behind the wheel of a car like the Mercedes-AMG GT R the Porsche 911 GT3, or the Ferrari 812 Superfast, let alone drive one on a daily basis. That means that it’s hard for us to understand or comprehend the outright cost of daily driving one of these works of art. Even doing something like buying new tires can set you back the cost of a Honda Civic and you better hope you don’t get a ding or a scratch in the paint because you’re going to pony up big time to make it look right again. Even simple things like oil changes and filter changes cost fast in excess of what you and I are actually used to. With that in mind, take a look at the video below and listen to what Shmee has to say about his experience with daily driving high-end cars like the AMG GT R and 911 GT3. It will certainly put things into perspective for you!
