F40 Search

I've decided to put me on search of an F40. I prefer the European version (esthetically). And please i would ask you to contact me if you will know of an F40 for sale which is not on famous website like anamera ecc. since i've already seen it. In two words i'm in search of a type not too much expensive. I think i will not spent more $ 500K. Thanks all.

For 500K in Europe you will not get an F40 nowadays unless it has something really bad like a big accident or a million miles!

Oh yeah i know. But unfortunately actually i don't think to be able spend much more than 500K. Probably in Europe will be very hard the search, but perhaps in USA will be more easier with the change currency favorable.

update, just talked to my friend that bought a US f40 last month. He said no US f40's have been sold since march for under 1m US. Sounds like a tough order. here is a pic of his. It has been upgraded to LM spec.

If we are in a bubble, as many believe, you will be able to buy one for $400K in the next few years. Right?

I don't speculate on cars and I certainly would not right now as things feel a bit frothy.

Your first post said $500k, not 500k. There is quite a difference between the two. For 500k you can still find a reasonable one, I think, but you'd have to be a) quick or b) wait for the bubble to burst. And yes, Pablo, I really think it will burst.

I don't know if it's a bubble, all can be also if i don't think. For this i think i'm a lot in later.
Onno - I could spent 500K if there is one in good condition.

May I ask why? Is it historical/cyclical? OR do you think the economy has elevated hard goods ( art gold etc)? Would love your perspective.

Statistically I believe you are correct.

Very simply, Scott, I just don't think any market can sustain the kinds of growth we have seen. There is no logical reason for a car to be worth 3 times what it was worth last year in the same condition (F40's have not gone that fast, but still quite fast, doubling your money in 3 - 4 years). People are now buying the cars for the money, not for the car itself. All sorts of people that have no interest in cars per se want in on the action. As soon as the first bad results come in, they just go running. It might take a couple of years yet, but it will come.

Got it. Speculation and investment. But they are getting older and there is attrition.




For me it's an academic exercise in economics. Not an option. I'm more of a 288 GTO guy anyway.

I on the other hand think that in two years aprox the F40 under 15,000 kms will be worth a million Euros.
