This is straight from the F-chat site. Anybody have any stories like this about Lambos. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...2480051637&rd=1 Sometimes I have to shock myself back to reality concerning the true cost of driving a car like a Ferrari. Granted, anyone who can afford to buy a 456 new may not be concerned about such trivial things as dollars per mile. This was just an example, however, of just how expensive these cars can be to drive (or not drive). Tires = $1200 Oil changes: 9 x $200 = $1800 Fuel: 1400 gallons @ $2/gal = $2800 Depreciation = $139100 ($209k to 69.9k) Total $144900 Mileage: 15924 Cost per mile: 144900/15924 = $9.10/mile (w/o taking into account the Tubi or any servicing) Think about that for a minute. Trip to the movies, $91. To the corner for milk, $18. Weekend trip to B&B, $2700. Cruise with friends, $910. Why would anyone, ANYONE, buy a brand-new Ferrari? Most that purchase Ferraris are hard working, successful people. To succeed in business you ned to understand the value of your money, why would anyone willingly take a $140k hit on depreciation?
