A Used Ferrari – When Car Value Depreciation Becomes a Huge Concern

To the vast majority of the car driving public car value depreciation is a minor annoyance, rather than some kind of huge investment affecting decision. The general pattern of practice for the average guys out there is; buy a car, drive it until it stops working, scrap it and buy a new one. This pattern is repeated once every 10 years or so until the Government prevents you from driving do to your advanced years. This is primarily because the vast majority of us don’t buy prestige cars, where a car can fall in value by up to 50% the very second it has been driven away from the dealership for the first time!

This is an incredible statistic, but let me give you an example of some of the kind of figures we are dealing with here: a brand Ferrari 599 would cost somewhere in the region of £200,000 ($324,000 approximately). A little research shows that within a year the value of this car will have plummeted to £150,000 ($243,000). You wouldn’t expect your average Ford Focus to suffer such a crash in value, so why does this occur with high-performance prestige cars like Ferrari models.

Put simply the dealers reduce the price massively because they know these cars are going to be very hard to sell. Generally speaking, if you have got enough money to buy a Ferrari, you are quite unlikely to want one that someone else has pushed to the limit on the motorways and country lanes are you? You are likely to want a pristine model complete with new car smell.

If you are in any doubt as to the validity of my claims, feel free to check out the Used Ferrari market, but please beware if you are considering buying a new Ferrari, in less than a year it will be worth nowhere near the amount you originally paid for it.

Used Bentley – A Rather Costly Used Car!

Some people would question the logic behind spending over £50,000 on a used car, but then again the used cars I am talking about aren’t just any normal cars. Prestige and luxury used vehicles are a arguably a cut above the models that you would normally see crowding a dealer’s forecourt, but the same concerns still apply regardless of the badge on the front of the vehicle.

These concerns include; how the car has been driven by the previous owner, is there a full service history and has it ever been involved in any kind of serious accident. So regardless of how much money you are spending, you do have to ask a lot of questions when you are searching for a used car.

The prestige used car market is awash with used Bentleys, Jaguars, Maseratis and all manner of cars that would reduce your average car fanatic into a drooling mess. Believe it or not these used models are a great deal cheaper than the equivalent new models regardless of mileage. This is due to prestige vehicle depreciation which makes the price of a luxury vehicle drop at an astonishing rate. This is because dealers find it harder to sell prestige cars as opposed to regular, more reasonably price cars.

One of the better second hand prestige cars available on the market at the moment happens to be Used Bentley models. Although the initial price tag may seem hefty, it is normally a vast reduction on the original price quoted by dealers.

If we look at the history of this brand then Bentley actually started when W. O. Bentley started selling cars. Surprising part is that at that time the cars sold by W. O. Bentley were not his own cars. He always wanted to make cars and sell them however initially he sold other cars. With his hard work and dedication, finally he started his line of cars under the brand name of Bentley Motors Ltd. This started in year 1919 however the first car was out in 1921. The reason was that at those times most of the things were done by workmen rather than machines and a lot of detailing was involved in making a car at that time.

With passage of time, new innovations started taking place. Bentley started using aluminium pistons in order to make them light. Almost from initial days Bentley has been a car of desire for wealthy people and a separate class was given to this brand. With brand and class some difficulties came in. Due to depression in the market people stopped buying these out of world experience cars as they were very expensive. That is time when Bentley sold out to Rolls Royce and there on this new company started selling out these cars. That is the time when things changed for this brand. And once again people started showing more interest in buying these models. There are numerous people across the globe ready to own these masterpieces at any cost. People who have taste for vintage and heritage always want at least one Bentley model in their collection. What magic and what show!
