Well, my old neighbor did this to his ex wife many years back. He of course moved out of the house. In order to achieve the maximum impact (he purchased a Red Nissan 300zx (2+2)- same rationale as most divorced guys) pulled up to pick up the kids for the weekend - and - now this is the punch line - had his new drop dead blond girlfriend in the car. I only came upon the scene due to the loud and simply over the top screams from the ex.......along with some thrown objects.
The upgrade was outstanding - like a 4 to a 9.5. The smile on his face was evident, the reaction of the ex - priceless. A mastercard moment.....if only the video battery was not dead.....
So the car is merely the object - an upgraded companion - that should get it done.
