anybody know how much it cost to own a 458 italia

annual maintenance cost?

car insurance? etc?

and is it better to wait for the last production run to get one so they can work out the kinks?

thanks

GBP 1-2k

Depends on your profile.

Kinks are pretty well sorted. Good luck getting a build slot.

GBP 1 - 2k excluding tyres.

Depends on profile, indeed. How many cars do you have and do you insure them all together, what age are you, what claim history, which area, how garaged, how many miles per annum etc etc etc.

The later you buy the higher your depreciation, unless you keep the car until well after the successor has phased out, when the latest models become more valuable than the earlier ones. Current cars are fine, I wouldn't wait if I would decide to order one.

No offence but if you have to ask.....it might not be in your price range.

If you can afford a car of that price, you get your admin assistant to check for you...lol

A car of that price is like worrying about the difference between a $20 oil change at the local shop and a $50 one at the dealer for a regular car.

No offence, just a first impression.

I have to agree with you, we are talking $300K+ on this car. Maintenance is nothing compared to depreciation which will be like falling off a cliff.

Consider that you have dumped $300K+ and that if you get anything back in the end, that would be nice.

You either want a Ferrari or you don’t. Yes, you need to have enough money, but otherwise think of it as one hell of a weekend in Vegas with a very happy ending ……..Steve
