Why wouldn’t a person want to consider a new or used Ferrari as their next vehicle? It’s sleek, it’s stylish, and it is, absolutely, the epitome of luxurious ride. Yet, still, with many different varieties in the luxury field today, it can be a difficult decision to choose just one. So, many are asking the question ‘What sets Ferrari apart from the rest?’ This article sets out to provide three solid reasons to take a closer look at the available models of this Italian show piece.
If you are going to invest thousands upon thousands of dollars into a vehicle, you want to know, among other things, that the car is going to get your from point A to point B. What’s better is if it will do so in the shortest amount of time possible. After all, speed is sexy and, as demonstrated by the base model of the new Ferrari 458 Italia, the Ferrari knows all about sensuality. Even in its barest form this car can blow away the competition, reaching maximum speeds of just over two hundred miles per hour thanks to its powerful 4.5 litre V8 engine, featuring a approximate 570 horsepower. But, it’s not enough to go fast if it takes forever to get there. There are no concerns on that front when driving one of these beauties. The 458 can go from zero to sixty mph in less than three and half seconds and a mere look at the profile shows exactly why the car is able to perform so well even at the greatest speeds. It is almost triangular in appearance. One can easily see how aerodynamic the design truly is.
Of course, it isn’t the speed that is going to be the first thing that one sees when walking up to a Ferrari. It is the design and that is also what is going to ensure that your new purchase receives the ‘oohs and ahhs’ that your investment deserves. From the chrome ‘prancing horse’ at the front to the boxy, yet rounded rear end, the SA Aperta, for instance, doesn’t have to make a sound to be noticed. Whether is a glossy cherry red or a flashy, stylish black, this vehicle is anything but conforming. And once inside, you are sure to be equally as pleased. With racing car inspired seats with splashes of the exterior color palette built in and a glossy black finish on the dash; no detail was overlooked by the Ferrari design engineers.
Unlike its competition, Ferrari has maintained the ability to build cars that look great now and continue to drive beautifully far into the future, which is why this is one of the few cars on the market that can truly be looked at as an investment. The newest models have shown, year after year, their ability to retain value. The cars depreciate very little, even as they rack up miles.
Further proof of this brand’s likelihood to act as a sound investment is the fact that classic models are now pulling in millions at auction houses around the world. Though an extreme case due to its rare existence, the 1957 Ferrari 250 GTO could sell for as much as twenty million dollars. Even those models that are not nearly as rare are establishing a reputation of appreciating assets. So not only will this purchase gain you desirable attention and the ability to outrun all others, it could also bring you a reasonable return at some point in the future.
