Household income minimum should be at least 400k IMO to be able to really afford a toy like this. Of course you can buy it no problem with less than 300k household income, but I don't think that is wise.
I am always quite puzzled by posts like this. So, if the $400k wage earner has a $1mm mortgage that he is shelling out for month after month and the $250k doesn't have a mortgage, guess which one has more discretionary income for a $125k auto purchase? There is more than one test that is required to determine affordability. I know plenty of people that earn $500k+ annually that are leveraged to the tits who have no business buying a $50k car let alone one like this.
