I believe the Aston-Martin V12 Vantage S is the very last V12 being offered with MT. They have my respect.

One of the best reasons to be considering the 360 is the availability of manual transmission cars at little to no premium. On F430, MT cars draw a substantial premium, due to rarity of MT models. ...

Have you ever seen a 550 or 575 next to a 599? It's astonishing just how much bigger the 599 is. It just dwarfs the earlier cars. (See pic).

From a performance perspective, the 599 is leagues...

They made so made TRs and they are mid-engine GT cars with a high center of gravity. Expensive to maintain and very heavy in the rear. There is no excuse to be driving up the prices of these cars. ...

I expect some of the special cars to hold prices, such as F40, 288GTO, Enzo, 360 CS, F430 Scuderia, 599 GTO, 458 Speciale, etc.

However, I just can't imagine prices for 308, 328, TR holding much...

Nice collection of cars there and the shop always has something interesting.

However, you could never take pictures, which I thought was a bit snobbish.

No GM-sourced automatic, please.

I used to own a white 328 - it looked like the Mach 5 (Speed Racer) and much better in person.

Don't count out the 612. Last iteration of the same engine in the 575, but more powerful. Once of the most underrated Ferraris out there.

I've heard of a 540S, but do not believe that is intended for US consumption.

Regardless, I would welcome a lower-end model from Ferrari - preferably with a MT. :)

From my experience, it depends how how often you drive them.

Drive them frequently and their almost bullet-proof. Let them sit, and you may regret the day you purchased. :)

Whilst the 550 has rebounded in price, others have really gone nuts; including the 308, 328, and TRs.
