Ferrari GBP 200k/$300k Question

If you had to spend GBP 200k/$320k/Euro 240K on either a Ferrari or group of Ferraris in the next 3 months, what would you buy?

As an investment, pure pleasure, or both?

I set myself this budget following the recent sale of my 16M and so far have bought a very low mileage F430 Spider F1 with CCM brakes and am now on the hunt for a suitable 360 Challenge Stradale, always loved the CS look & noise and this will give me two very different Ferrari experiences to enjoy!

Then again, you could also consider a 430 Scuderia and a slightly older F430 Spider, although at this budget it'd probably be without CCM's. Either option will reward tremendously; especially given we have a whole Ferrari season ahead of us to enjoy these great toys

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!


Current: California 30 Handling Speciale.
Past: FF, 458 Speciale, California 30, 599HGTE, Scuderia Spider 16M, California, F430 Spider

A bit off the wall, perhaps, and I guess it depends onwhether you fancy something older or more modern. However, having something classic like this nice 1963 Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2 Series III up for US$150K at Mike Sheehan would go down well during a nice summer drive when you donít fancy the other extreme.

Happy driving

Since it shows you have never owned a Scuderia, start there, then wait for something else to come along that really turns you on.

Just pure pleasure in this case.

Just spent a few minutes looking at the classifieds and current thinking would be:

430 Spider GBP 80k

then either a

430 Scuderia GBP 115k
or
599 GTB GBP 100K

or

612 Scaglietti GBP 60k
and
308 GTS GBP 30k

or a 599 GTB 100K

Boxer, given your current lineup, you've got the adrenaline quotient completely covered. So I'd go for a two-fer: A nice GT and something vintage.

A Quatroporte and a 250/330 2+2. Both elegant road cars but with completely different feels. One for elegant travel and going out to dinner in, and one for nostalgic drives.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Right hand drive 16M with a matching color scheme Winnebago - leave the two at your house and visit quite often.

The Ferrari Life membership include that as an option - right?

Nice idea but I really don't have the time to properly own and enjoy a classic right now.

Rule #1 - no land yachts.

Just about doable at 200

In that case I say a QP and a 430 Spider. Both can be driven every day and you take the one that suits the drive or occasion.

Well for comfort, either a 599 or a 458 would make excellent daily drivers. The Scud seats are great, but very hard.

I think I've already answered that question with the 458 coming in the next 2 months.

But if you're giving me another GBP200k and I HAVE to spend it on additional Ferraris, then a great BB then it would be an F40 after both BB's were sold.

I think I'd go...

308 GTS
550 Maranello
360 CS
612 Scag

OK - I probably couldn't do all that with GBP £200k, but I wouldn't be too far off the mark...?

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello
Ex's: Dino 308 GT4, 612 Scaglietti
The Rest: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Porsche 911 2.7s, Porsche 911 3.2 Carerra, Ducati 916... and the Land Rovers
