V10 R8's - Depreciation.
« on: February 26, 2015, 09:35:35 am »
So, you can now pick up a tidy, 1 owner, NZ New, V10 R8 with sub-10k kms for $150k or less. For a car that was circa $320k new to be worth $150k 4 or so years later...that's a massive depreciation hit! Also rather tempting.

Until you drive one. The sound of that V10 behind your head is epic. If you plan to keep it, no problem. Using it for a while and stretching to buy it in the first place and then selling would indeed be nuts.
The V10 will be the future collectible of this gen R8 IMO.

Is there something seriously wrong with the Merc V12 ?

I was toying with a 600 series V12, what I am missing  ?

What a fantastic way to make a car look s**te. That matt black looks horrendous. Mind you the price is pretty good at the moment.

Surely you jest ?!?

The W140 is a fat, slab sided fugly assed boat of a car !

Skip it for the easier-on-the-eye W220.
