Ownership cost

What used Ferrari 550 coupe will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Ferrari 550 coupe?

You wouldn't be considering a Ferrari if you were short of a few quid, but the 550 is sensationally expensive. The 550 would have set you back over £150,000 when it was new, and three-year old examples are still worth almost 60% of that figure.

True, this means that used versions will have depreciated by tens of thousands, but getting your hands on one will still cost you a huge wedge of cash. Fuel consumption checks in at the 13mpg mark, and it'll also cost you an absolute packet to insure and service. Low running costs may not be important to Ferrari owners, but the 550 is pricey to run, even by Ferrari standards.
