Ferarri 458 Demand Goes to Pricey Lengths

evolveteam February 16, 2010 1

The recession definitely hasn’t diminished buyers’ interest in the Ferrari 458. The gorgeous new model is in such high demand that people are actually competing to bypass the three-year waiting list by paying more than GBP 25,000 (US$39,000), above the GBP 170,000 (US$265,000) listing price. It’s not unusual for the prototypes of such exclusive sports cars to change hands for inflated prices before the first owners take delivery, but the premium required to snag one of the early 458s is exceptionally high – a reflection of just how desirable it is.
