How Much Do Ferraris Cost?

A Ferrari’s price depends on many things, most notably their scarcity and the number of models produced. Retail prices are one thing, but many Ferraris appreciate in value over time, and typically go for significantly above their retail price when they end up at auction.

What’s the Typical Ferrari Price?

The retail prices of a Ferrari are more of a starting point than an end point for many of these vehicles, but here are the starting prices of some of Ferrari’s recent offerings:

  • Ferrari 812 Superfast Retail Price: $335,000
  • Ferrari 812 GTS Retail Price: $404,494
  • Ferrari F8 Tributo Retail Price: $270,530
  • Ferrari F8 Spider Retail Price: $280,000
  • Ferrari Portofino M Retail Price: $226,000
  • Ferrari Roma Retail Price: $218,670
  • Ferrari SF90 Stradale Retail Price: $625,000

Retail price is only the start, though, especially when it comes to limited models.

What’s the Most Expensive Ferrari?

In 2018, a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for a stunning $70 million. Bearing chassis number 4153 GT, there are several reasons why this vehicle fetched such a monumental price:

  • Only 39 250 GTO models were made, and it’s exceedingly rare to encounter one that’s available for sale.
  • This particular model was the winner of the 1964 Tour de France, with Lucien Bianchi and Georges Berger behind the wheel.
  • The vehicle is exceptionally well-preserved and mostly original.
  • This model has never sustained serious accident damage, despite its storied history.
  • The vehicle was submitted for Classiche documentation in 2012.

Prior to the sale of this particular GTO, the previous record for most expensive Ferrari was another 1963 GTO that sold for $52 million in 2013.

The $70 million GTO is believed to be the most expensive car in the entire world — we expect that the winner of the auction, Weathertech Founder and CEO David MacNeil, is enjoying his purchase immensely.

Which Ferrari to Buy as an Investment

Any of them! Due to their highly limited nature, any Ferrari has the potential to appreciate in value. That said, any limited model is likely to increase in value more sharply than those produced in greater numbers. For instance, there were only 500 LaFerrari models ever made, and they cost over $1 million USD when they were released — but in 2016, a LaFerrari was auctioned for almost $5 million! This is to say nothing of the 500th (and final) LaFerrari that was produced, which fetched $7 million at auction, leading to the declaration that it’s “the most valuable 21st century automobile ever sold at auction.” 

You may also be able to expect price to rise on a similar curve with other limited models, such as the Monza SP1 and SP2 (500 total models), Scuderia Spider 16M (499 models made), 812 Competizione (999 models), and Competizione Aperta (599).
