A total asset apocalypse for people who don't currently own, probable over-optimism for those that do. I guess the truth will be somewhere in the middle but I can't see the people I know with these kinds of cars rushing to panic-sell at half their realistic or perceived value. They'll simply wait it out.

This. I don't know anyone with these cars are actually stretched to own them.

This is also my experience.

I bought one 3 weeks ago (360 Spider F1 with 28k miles) and there are only 3 of these in the same colour combination listed on the market here (and one from a private seller on Auto Trader) and they are all more money than I paid.

(Mine is the sold one in the link above)

Nice. I'm guessing that if the values tank you won't be rushing out to sell it at a massive loss.

i guess this will depend if someone is selling because they need the cash, or if they are selling to change, as long as what you're buying has massively tanked too, it kinda balances out.

I know finance isn't a popular topic on PH, but for some reason i feel much more comfortable with my two financed cars than my owned outright one, i guess this is due to getting my head around the TCO before signing the agreements, the R8 is a massive unknown now due to Covid, i haven't checked but i guess the trade to retail spread at the moment is eye watering on pretty much anything!

Cheers! It is a keeper so if it tanks or increases it really doesn't matter. smile

I wouldn't put cash into a car that I might need back and I tend to add rather than change these days.

Only exception is my last Range Rover that died and needed to be replaced (as it is my only really practical car). That stung a bit! smile

360's are slowly coming down to the 50k mark, including one that is at the Ferrari Centre.

The Supercar Rooms have a car up for the high 40's, albeit higher miles for a Ferrari 360 but not a problem if you wanted to continue to drive it. I missed out on the last wave of "cheap" Ferraris, hoping to not make that same mistake again

Anyone got info on this one ?

https://www.saxton4x4.co.uk/used-car-details/used-...

Seems a lot of car for the money. A bit old and the miles could be better but still only 40k.

What’s not to like ?

I would not buy a car from that outfit if it was the last place on earth to buy a car, especially an exotic like that. Caveat emptor.

Dig a little on Google peel away the glossy surface and you find some interesting stuff.

If you’re after something like the Ferrari, go with a recognised specialist or main dealer.

Cheers,
I have done just that actually and you’re right , they seem a bit “dodge”.

There’s also one for private sale at £55k ish i think too.

This is up for £53,995 on their FB page. Looks nice enough - anyone know the car?

Get a 355.

More engaging than a 360, significanttly better looking and better sounding. Epic, epic cars.

Stick to manual as the F1 system was too new (though still better than the first two generations in the Aston.)

When I had my 355, salesmen got me to try 360s a couple of times. Never really appealed. Just didn't seem as special.

Saw my first 355 in ages yesterday evening (anyone on here near CM7, thank you) and had pangs for my old one.

It'd be a dull place if we all liked the same stuff smile

I did 40k miles in my 355 over 5-6yrs. It was brilliant. Special in every way. The steering was a bit light, but it could be hustled properly.

A 360 is more modern, but that's not always a good thing. I found it a bit...anemic. The Challenge Stradale, IMO, is how the 360 should have been all along (albeit perhaps with the comfortable interior).

(Bought an Aston V8 Vantage to replace the 355. Also a very good car. Control weights better matched than the 355, very pretty car and a lovely cabin. Great noise. Don't have quite the same pangs when I see these. Think my other half preferred it though).
