Ferrari Expense Calculator

We all dream big at one point or another. I’m sure once upon a time, you said something along the lines of “If I won the lottery, or were mega-successful, I’d buy a big house, and a (INSERT LUXURY CAR HERE)!

Now, let’s say you actually GET it. You obtain the grain, and you’re car shopping for your next ride. You’re a brand new millionaire! However, you’re new to being rich, so $100,000 – $2.2M is an incredible amount of money, and you don’t want the sales guy to dupe you! “It’s a great car, in immaculate shape, and made from only the finest quality items…” But like a regular car, mileage is important. In fact, more so in a high-end luxury car like a Ferrari. So, what’s considered “High-mileage?”

Typically, 5,000 miles (8046 km for the rest of us) per year is considered low miles, and 15,000 miles is considered high. Now, in the world of exotic cars, these rules go right out the window, and we begin to play with a completely new set of rules, and for a wide variety of reasons. The engineering behind these cars is far, FAR more complex, the way an exotic is driven is typically very different from your Corolla, and if the service history is foggy, forget it. Walk away from that steal of a deal on a Lambo.

15,000 miles, as a general rule of thumb, IS high mileage. Service history is about the only thing that saves a Ferrari from bouncing from showroom to showroom, getting discounted deeper, and deeper each day. One of the major services that you want to make sure was done within 50-100 miles of purchasing the car is a timing belt. Thanks to Jalopnik.com, we can see a table of annual servicing costs on Ferrari’s.

*Major Service = belts, tensioners, bearings, seals, & gaskets (every 3-5 years)

The information provided is in USD, and provided by the Ferrari dealership of St. Lauterdale. No need to Google them, you can reach them directly at (954) 607-7942 whenever you feel the need to! But seriously – If you aren’t looking for a report on all of these services, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Major league big failure.

The same general concepts apply to Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Pagani, Audi, etc. These high-end cars boast huge motors, tons of electronics and sensors, then the fact that they are normally played in, not carefully daily driven. If you knew that the person before you shifted at 7,000 RPM consistently, would you want to buy that car? Thought not.

Keep your eyes out for good deals, folks! But don’t be Naive!
