Auto Car (UK) - - INSIGHT -


FORD GT Euro­pean cus­tomers have yet to re­ceive their cars, but the trad­ing of au­tumn de­liv­er­ies has al­ready be­gun at a €200,000 pre­mium. Fragopou­los pre­dicts a volatile fu­ture, though, say­ing prices are likely to see-saw over the next few years.


FER­RARI 812 SUPERFAST The last nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V12-pow­ered Fer­rari is ex­pected to have a short pro­duc­tion life of around 1200 units, giv­ing it col­lec­tor sta­tus even though it is not an of­fi­cial lim­it­e­drun car. Pre­mi­ums are al­ready run­ning at €50,000 to €100,000.


FER­RARI 488 SPE­CIALE It’s not of­fi­cially con­firmed yet but is ex­pected to fol­low, as per the for­mula laid down by the 458 Spe­ciale (right). Be­lieve the ru­mours and the 750bhp-plus 488 Spe­ciale will be pre­sented this sum­mer. Ex­pect pre­mi­ums of €100,000 over list price for the first ex­am­ples.


LAM­BORGH­INI URUS An SUV with a pre­mium? Look at what hap­pened with the Ben­tayga and you’d bet­ter be­lieve it. First Edi­tion, fully specced ver­sions of the Bent­ley com­manded an €80,000 to €100,000 pre­mium for the first six months and the ‘Rambo Lambo’ will do the same.


FER­RARI F12 tdf Lim­ited-edi­tion Fer­raris will al­ways do well, but the im­mi­nent ar­rival of the 812 Superfast means the F12 tdf is close enough in spec and per­for­mance for its value to fall. Even so, Fragopou­los says the F12 tdf is still a great mid to long-term in­vest­ment.


FER­RARI 458 SPE­CIALE Ex­pect a €50,000 dip in prices in the wake of the launch of the 488 Spe­ciale in the sum­mer, with the Spe­ciale Aperta los­ing around €100,000. As above, though, the last nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V8 Aperta will make a su­perb mid- to long-term in­vest­ment.


LAM­BORGH­INI AVENTADOR SV COUPE AND ROAD­STER Proof that the evo­lu­tion of a un­lim­ited-pro­duc­tion car is poi­son for the out­go­ing lim­ited-edi­tion model. Al­though ask­ing prices at deal­er­ships re­main at €400,000 to €450,000 for de­liv­ery-mileage coupés, Fragopou­los ex­pects a price drop of


MCLAREN P1 AND P1 GTR The once boom­ing de­mand for the P1 (and the Porsche 918 Spy­der) has slowed slightly. It re­mains a great long-term bet, but the dip in de­mand ahead of the new wave of Mercedesamg and As­ton/red Bull hy­per­cars is ex­pected to take around €200,000 off ask­ing prices.
