Long term test: 35’000 km in a Ferrari 550 Maranello

2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello

Running costs

No surprise: depreciation of the purchase price drowns any other cost consideration. Like all V12 Ferraris, Maranellos have gone through a breathtaking residual price decline, without much connection to their intrinsic appeal. Fixed costs (insurrance and taxes) also play a large role, especially if the car is only occasionally driven. The least expensive budget items are those which constitute the legend around the brand or supercar ownership: tires and parts.
