ferrari california price

Since it's foundation in 1947, Ferrari has become one of the world's most well-known manufacturers of sports cars. Synonymous with elegance and performance, the motoring world will always hold its breath whenever Ferrari role out a new model. Obviously, such status and engineering comes at a price - a price most of us simply can't afford. But buying a Ferrari doesn't always have to come straight from the showroom. There's hundreds of used Ferraris around the country, waiting to be re-owned by someone.

Ferrari's flagship the 612 Scaglietti is at the pinnacle of avant-garde design and motor engineering. The 5.7 litre V12 launches the 612 from 0 - 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds - massively quick for a large, spacious grand tourer. The interior is undoubtedly lavish, and bursting with crazy gadgets like the electrochromic roof. As you'd expect, the price is high, starting from £213,000. Almost too high, initial sales may have been slow but a few models have started to find their way on to the used market. You can snap up an '09 reg with 4,000 miles on the clock for just under £170,000, or an '07 reg with 11,000 miles on the clock for around £110,000. Expensive? Yes, but for one of the best grand tourers around, you'd expect to pay top whack.
