Ive a 458 Spider I've had since 2014 (new) that I've done 33000 miles in, an F12 Ive had since 16 (slightly used) that's on 33000 miles also. Both those will rise by 5000 this year. Theyve been all over Europe (Southern Spain, Southern Italy etc).

Aside from those I have other cars that I've owned long term that I use a lot too (Bentley, Porsche, Mercedes).

54 this year, I missed a year of road trips last year doing adventure stuff. Irritated the hell out of me so I wont be doing that again. Just finished planning and booking 3 euro road trips for this year last night. :-)

Love the 458 tho I never did get used to the indicators on the wheel.

As I’ve said before if you’d consider a walk around chat with your cars for this new channel I’m doing be very grateful!
My email is bbmrmail@gmail.com
Thanks again

First video of the YouTube channel Drivers Keepers is live. This one about my Murcie. It’s the first one so go easy!

If anyone on here can help with appearing with their high mileage supercars (or supercars they would never sell) then I’d be very grateful

I enjoyed that - the need for multiple replacement gearsticks is mind-blowing! The vid also illustrates what you're looking for here quite well.

I'm just a year and 5k miles into supercar ownership, so it's great to hear all these kinds of stories. biggrin

278k miles on my 944 turbo, used daily ish. Not exactly a supercar (ok not nearly a supercar) but maybe in the spirit of things.

My 1972 De Tomaso Pantera probably has about 100,000 miles on her now. Owned almost 30 years but barely driven for the first 20 years as it would break down before I could get it out of the driveway. In 2013 when I bought my 5.0L Jaguar XKR, it was (and still is) so good and so quick (600hp) that I simply gave up even attempting to drive the Pantera. After it sitting for a couple of years, I decided that if I couldn't make it into a car I could confidently drive whenever I wanted to, I was going to get rid of it. It spent more than 4 years being modified and restored, and for the last five years or so, I drive it every weekend and sometimes when the Jag is being serviced during the week.

As for my XKR, I passed 210,000 miles on her this week, absolutely the best automobile I will ever own in my lifetime, and still a pleasure after 11 years and so many joy filled miles. Tracked dozens of times and completely reliable. It will never leave my garage.

I think you should pursue “cake eater”. I don’t know what mileage his 599 is on but he’s clearly racking them up.

Just under 60,000 miles in my Carrera GT. Would be well over that now but the PAG 'Stop Drive' campaign has taken it off the road for 12 months.[url]

It's very pleasing to see that at least some owners of these cars actually use them. I've driven every car I've owned on a regular basis but have to admit to deliberatly avoiding certain brands/models due to their mileage sensitivity. This thread had encouraged me to be less cautious.

Enjoyed that also. And looking forward to seeing some other gems being properly used. I can understand the low mileage bit but always saddens me, especially notable when I was in my F car phase (although I was never sure whether they were actually the low mileage that was on the odometer!).
