We all know you can find a 20 year old Ferrari with less than 5,000 miles.

Since I drive my car offen and intend to drive it for many years, I am wondering this:

What is the most mileage ever for a Ferrai? I do know a Terrsarosa with about 130,000 miles. Can Ferrari compete with the Volvo for mileage?

Just a different look at Ferrari.

:lol:

I have wondered this myself. For me, living in Maine, it is not an issue; the car can never be more than a toy since it would be stuck in a parking lot with 3" of snow on the ground. To me, owning a Ferrari 308 is the same as the guy that has a $25k Harley-Davidson only I can put the top on if I get caught in the rain.

For the people who live in climates where the Ferrari could be a daily driver, how long would it last? I think the maintainence costs would be very high. But, I look at the specified maintainence in the manual and I think it is a bit extreme. I think (well, justly so) that Ferrari wants the car in race ready condition at all times. On my 308, I believe the manual calls for me to pull the spark plugs and clean them every 5,000 miles, on a new car, you don't even have to look at the plugs for 100,000 miles. I think that the Ferrari is so well built that if you follow the golden rules of clean air, clean oil and clean fuel you should have a car that will last as long as a Volvo. It may not be up to factory race specs after 100,000 miles but I don't think it would let you down.

and it also depends on where you live.
Like Pete says, he can't drive his all the time cuz of the wheater

My research has indicated that 308's are, in fact, very tough cars. Of course, this holds true only if they're started on the right foot and not totally neglected. Don't get me wrong, I don't plan on slapping on some off-road lights on the front and hauling up Pike's Peak. :D Thoughts?? :question: :question: :question:

Forza,
