Record for a 246?

Sheehan just listed a 246GTS for sale, asking $249K.
A quarter mil!
That has got to be a new record asking price, no?

In which currency? It's equivalent to 172k Euro, I've seen cars for sale for that price in 2008.

And, BTW, in the late '80ies we were seeing those prices too and that's not counting inflation. The market still isn't as high as it was then. Boxers were going for GBP200k and they were only 10 years old, with no classic status attached to them.

Of course we all know what happened a year later.

Numbers alone is on the high side. Nevertheless, this also means that the value of US$ is not what is used to be. w/ smiles Jimmy

Listed in US dollars Onno.

I can't recall seeing one listed for over 200K before.

I believe this GTS is a chairs & flairs model, David, which seems to command higher price in the States. Personally, I do not care for the lines and prefer normal GT and GTS lines. w/ smiles Jimmy

I know what it was listed in, but don't forget that classic Ferraris are a global market. They move across the planet often. Which is why I'm saying it's not such a ridiculous price for some potential clients. I've had a quick look at historical values and $250k seems indeed a high, including the crazy years in the early 90ies. They would go for about $160k according to Keith Martin's historical trends. Back then they were not quite recognised as Ferraris, more an entry level model. But if you take inflation into account, I guess the prices then were still quite close to this asking price.

@Jimmy. The chairs and flares also command a higher price in the UK. I love the chairs, the flares less so. Having one but not the other would be the ideal, but that would not be original.

Still it does seem very steep for a Dino.

Agree Boxer. That price puts it in or near the same range as a 365GTB4, 330 GTC, or even a 275GTB4.

It will be interesting to see what this car actually sells for.

Very true. Nice to see a very bullish (IMHO) asking price!

I think this is one where we will see "the owner has just authorised a significant reduction in selling price" emails in about 4 weeks.

Dinos have been selling for that sort of money in Australia for a few years now. I always felt pricing for Dinos in the US was cheap

We have a 1972 246GT listed for sale here in Australia for a cool AU$275k!!! (108k GBP, 202k Euro, 290k USD).

Prices for these cars have jumped significantly over the last 4-5 years here in Australia. The last one I saw advertised here in Oz was for AU$250k and I'm fairly sure it sold.

Aussie Dinos expensive

As Greg said above, Dinos here in Australia have been quite expensive for some time compared to the rest of the world.

There is a 1972 Dino 246GT currently on the market here for AU$275k which is about GBP180k. The last one I saw for sale was around AU$250k and it sold!

For those interested, a red Concours Cond for sale in the North of France for 180K.

And another one just sold for 200 in Paris.

Have heard about a 200K GTS sold in Essen.

Sold or for sale ?

The ad is only dated 20th July...

Besides, is that me or the 2 pairs of exhausts have not the same size ?!!?

And when you take a look at the price of their Aston DBS V8 or Zagato, or even their Austin Healy BN/100...
