Surely it could have been bought for that figure a few months ago? If it does achieve £115k CV19 has had no effect on the price imo.
I too would be surprised if it got near to £115k. It was for sale at £119k for over 6 months and didn’t sell at a dealer.
There has also been a similar 2011 car listed for sale for most of the year that has bounced between £113-£115k and not sold and still advertised.

It was indeed. It was the owner of the garages personal car.

How come you didn't buy it, if you don't mind me asking? Those two faults don't sound like a huge deal?
Couldn’t agree on a price for my R8 was the main reason. Plus I decided I wanted a red one as it will be my first Ferrari.
Can’t argue with that. The allure of red is real.

If you were putting in offers on 458s or 488s, where would you be going in at (% offer) if you didn’t want to wait for an obvious correction on Autotrader?

Thinking of picking one up if we are stuck in the UK for the summer, and though I’m not bothered about nailing anyone to the wall, I don’t want to take a massive hit on depreciation.

Compare the price of the 458 about to auction on Collecting Cars to its original ad as a basis then expect to lose at least twenty grand if you sell after the summer

Prices are certainly dropping now. A decent 458 Italia can be had for £125k and a decent spider circa £135/140k now.

All this talk about the 458 being worth more than a 488 in the future I am not sure as it is the 488s that are driving down the 488 prices. Once the F8 hits the used markets and drives down the prices below we will really know which way things sway - i.e if the 488 drops below a 458. Historically I don't think this has ever happened for a mainstream model? Where the previous car was worth more than the next gen car?

355s overtook 360s for a while didn’t they?

It will be interesting to see what happens.

The major difference with 488 vs 458, as we all know, is the latter being "the last N/A".

If the 458 gets compressed then the F430 surely has to follow it down, as it's essentially the same "type" of car. For my money the 458 is the first car where Ferrari had to abandon the "you pay for the engine and the rest of the car is free" attitude. Aside from the mag suspension being a weak point it is solid, especially compared to the F430 with its chocolate manifolds and top mounts. Anyway, that's by the by.

360 is hard to call as it's a classic, though, in my opinion, not to the same degree as the F355 which is a band apart. I find it hard to imagine a world where the F430 is uniformly cheaper than the 360.

My gut feeling is that the 488 - being a considerably faster and newer car than the 458, might have an impact on 458 valuations, probably proportionately to how much it gets compressed by the F8. Maybe early 458s might emerge unscathed? But they have seen static pricing for several years, so maybe it's time they will drop.

Really hard to call though, I suspect you would get polarising opinions based on how much or indeed overvalued the whole N/A vs turbo thing is.

imo the 458 will be worth more than the 488 just on the basis of it being the last N/A, there's also a fair amount of people who wanted one whilst growing up that are coming up the age where they have real cash and aren't intrested in a 488

personally for the same price I'd prefer a 458 but I am most likely bias

Yep. Last NA is going to be absolutely crucial. To many its the last "real" Ferrari.

355 prices were/are solidly higher than 360 so there is precedent.

I definitely am biased, but not from a financial point of view as you'll have to prise mine out of my cold dead hands.

Whats the same? This time last year the 458 Italia’s that are decent spec were all way over £145k...Spiders were touching £165/170k no longer the case. Search autotrader and you’ll see it yourself.

Mine would have to be cheap (2010, 30,000 hard miles) but as above - out of my cold dead hands. I will keep it forever unless Speciale and add more rather than sell it.

Yeah, searching AT I can't see anything you'd even remotely call a reasonable spec for under £130k, and a solidly decent spec starts a fair bit higher.

I can't find any well specced 458s with full Ferrari main dealer service history for under £130k unless i'm missing something..Sure, there are a few under that but poor spec and/or incomplete SH..

This looks a good example for starters....

Ok cynics here you go lol I understand where you are all coming from being 458 owners. I used to have one too and will be buying another very soon but it's there to be seen - the prices are dropping for now. I sold mine back to a main dealer last summer and if I was to sell this today I would have been £35k worse off on trade in prices today.

Italia's below £135k - anyone with decent negotiating stills could knock circa £5k + off in todays climate

£110k - 19k miles - 2011 car - decent spec!
ttps://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/ferrari/458/ferrari-458-4-5-italia-auto-seq-2dr/10330169

£125k Main dealer car with 2 year warranty - 15k miles - 2010 car
https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/...

£132k - 8k miles - 2011 car - mega spec in Rossa with Carbon Seats etc
https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/...

£135k - 22k miles - 2012 car - mega spec in Rossa with Carbon Seats Main dealer with 2 year warranty
https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/...

Spiders below £145k: (again pretty easy knocking £5k + off one of these)

£137,500 - 16k miles - 2012 - decent spec
https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202...

£137,995 - 21k miles - 2013 - MEGA spec - carbon seats and carbon porn fest
https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201...

£142,000 - 15k miles - 2013 - Rossa Corsa decent spec - Main Dealer - 2 year warranty
https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202...

£144k - 22k miles - 2013 - Black on Black - Carbon Porn Fest
https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202...


None of these cars are undesirable colours, specs or abnormally high mileages - all very good deals IMHO

I rest my case

A few 458s came onto Autotrader at £110k-£120k with one in resale red at £115k. Mileage doesn’t look too bad for a 458 too. Any flaws on the car?
