Get a viper!!
I suggest starting out with a pt cruiser (I know it's ugly, but oh well). Once you start earning some $ you can tune it up some. I know it's tempting but don't buy a $40,000 or so car just because you have the money.
Save until you have about $80,000 and go buy a dodge viper gts. This baby is nice enough stock, and you wont believe how much it can be upgraded. My viper has 1000+ horsepower and it can school the most expensive cars in the game, like a panoz esperante and a mazda 787b. And the best part is that I've only invested about $200k including the original purchase. Trust me on this one, the viper is definitely the best value in the game, and mine can go 270 mph.
