HOW MUCH EXTRA YOU’LL HAVE TO PAY — OR MAYBE LOSE
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.
MID TO LONG-TERM INVESTMENT
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.
