Vukasin HerbezJuly 3, 2020

7. Ferrari 488 GTB

Based on the 458 Italia, the 488 marks the return to the turbocharged V8 engines last used in the ’80s. Modern technology and competition made naturally aspirated engines obsolete and Ferrari needed to go the route of turbocharging.

Needless to say, the Ferrari 488 is again one of the best cars in the class. Also, it’s a typical midlife crisis car because it is flashy, fast, and expensive.

6. Range Rover

Another luxury SUV favorite by successful middle-aged guys who want to show the world they have a little class, not just a big bank account. Modern Range Rovers are perfect SUVs with plush interiors, powerful engines, highly capable drivetrains, and elegant design.

Too bad that all of those great machines will be spending their time on highways and in shopping mall parking lots.

5. Tesla Model S

The Model S is not the first car Tesla produced, but it is by far the most popular and most influential globally. It is the first fully-electric sedan produced in significant numbers and a car that singlehandedly created the electric car market.

Along with fantastic performance and loads of interesting technology, it makes a perfect middle-age crisis car for all IT engineers out there.

4. BMW M4 Convertible

The BMW M4 is a magnificent street racer with sublime handling, a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, and 460 HP. It has brutal performance and it is made for that perfect mountain road and breaking lap records.

However, in its convertible form, it is a common choice of middle-age men who want to show off. Of course, equipped with automatic and driven at 15 mph.

3. Jaguar XK Convertible

You crave for an imported luxury convertible, but you have a middle-class income and a strong case of midlife crisis. Why not opt for a used Jaguar XK Convertible. Introduced in 1996, there are numerous well-kept examples on the market.

For the price of an average used compact car, you will find yourself driving a luxury convertible with V8 power and leather interior.

2. Audi A5 Coupe

You want to differ from your neighbor’s Mercedes or your colleague’s BMW? You want to have a sleek coupe body with all-wheel-drive traction and powerful engine?

Well, the A5 Coupe is the right car for you. Of course, if your midlife crisis is particularly strong, you can move up to the RS5 and have 444 HP and fantastic performance.

1. Lamborghini Countach

There isn’t a better feeling than when you finally afford your childhood dream car. For most of today`s middle-age guys, that car was the legendary Lamborghini Countach. Introduced in the early ’70s and produced all the way up to the early ’90s, the Countach was the car of the generation.

For a long time, their prices were kind of low but recently they started becoming quite pricey. Obviously, the midlife crisis is strong with some buyers and they are eager to snap this piece of their childhood dreams.
