The grey 2012 FF on Collecting cars with 34,316 miles sold at £77,750 + fees (£82,415).

https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/2012-ferrari-f...

Not a particularly nice example but a lot of car for the money.
I think its a terrible example for the money. after I read the description, looked at who was selling it, read through the invoices, there could be 10K+ of work to go into it with some questionable bits in its history still.
£90K seems to about the floor for these with anything around sensible mileage. That would have been the best part of £275k 10 years ago.

If it needs £10K bringing it up to scratch it still looks like an awful lot of car for the money.

There are only a little over 200 of these in the UK so the pool is only going to become smaller. Especially as many owners simply won't part with theirs (me included).

With that said, it had all the hallmarks of a trader selling that as a private sale, which would make me wary.

Be interesting to see how much the ex Chris Harris car will fetch in a week or two.

I think it's the old adage; but the best car you can afford. Many be better off spending £110k with a reputable dealer in the first place with some warranty and comeback?
At least that way you can wait for the right colour & spec etc too.
That's my plan, unless someone contacts me privately with a stuner.

They are all reaching the age now where they tend to be moved on via SOR dealers. Very few are being sold through the Ferrari network.

It's luck in most cases. You either get a good one or you don't, you can make every effort to get inspections done and do as much due dilligence as possible and you can still get bad luck.

I paid through the nose for mine, it still had remaining factory warranty, passed an inspection with flying colours. 48hours after I collected it the oil cooler failed - £2500 and two weeks in a dealer - covered by warranty. Just downright bad luck, but the very reason I bought one that still had warranty remaining.

I paid £125K.

Or buy one without warranty, more miles, a bit older and "save" £25K - £30K that you can put towards bringing it back up to scratch.

I guess it also depends on your intentions. Do you want to own one for 12-18 months and get out as painless as possible or are you buying a keeper?

That can alter your perspective right from the day of purchase.

I'm looking to buy a keeper. I've had my current Granturismo since Jan 2016, currently on 47k and am aiming to trade up before it gets to 50k.

Joe Macari has three at the moment. They'll all be Ferrari approved used.

Joe seems to be cornering the market on ff's. All good spec cars.

Macari sold to HR Owen this year. The service side at least. I'm not sure if the sales side went with it.

I had my car taken there for an inspection, they were most helpful.

They only seem to stock quality FF's, he used one himself daily until he replaced it with a V12 Lusso.

I've got the first viewings of my 993 at the weekend, I wonder if an FF could sneak in the garage before Christmas!

Got my car back last week and apart from my wallet being considerably lighter the thing I noticed immediately was the brake feel was much better. Not driven in anger yet but going to be interesting to see what I think. The good news for the next owner (if I ever sell) is that I have taken the pain for them!


Worth noting that I had a Maserati GranCabrio before the FF which I loved, but the FF is many leagues above the Maser in every dynamic and aural department! And Mrs Pontypool prefers driving the Ferrari too, so that helps domestic harmony.
Looking to buy an FF- how long should ceramics last on a car?

If driven normally on the road, the life of the car.

If abused, then not very long !

Doesn't appear to be much movement on the ff front. Same cars, same prices....

I'd sell mine but tbh I think they're undervalued, that seems to reflect the market, they're just too good to sell for the money they're commanding

Difficult to determine what value they are as they aren't selling at it around the current asking prices.

Surely the answer is £10k less then than the current asking prices?

I never found that worked, particualrly on low volume cars almost always sold on consignment.

I put a number of quite sensible offers in on cars over the years and in pretty much every case it was asking price or no sale. Some of the cars on which I made offers remained for sale for a number of years.

That's the oddity with Ferraris, quite often the owner doesn't need to sell it (financially) to move on. So it's asking price or they keep it......
