    And they are cheap to run.

    No oil required. Ever. Apparently.

    A huge thank you to all who replied, this purchase is not for investment but to enjoy, you have given me confidence so I am now actively looking.
    Been a long time coming! :)

    Neil the experience is like nothing else you will ever have....You only live once and these cars are living the dream 24/7.....You will meet great people through your ownership and make fantastic friends who share the same passion.....Just don't become a hoarder otherwise you will work for the rest of your life......:)

    I’ve insured with Suncorp, NRMA and Shannon’s over the years. I’ve stuck with Shannon’s......even though they’re owned by suncorp. (I think)

    I've just moved all of my cars from Shannons to Famous car insurance...They specialise in cars used for motorsport and exotics....Much cheaper than Shannons and they upped all of my values.....The only downside is no under 25 drivers......

    thanks for your replys, I did contact shannons but because I have not owned a car like this before for at least 12 months they wont insure me.
    so I will check the others out, thanks again :)

    Still have a long....long way to fall.

    So my prescription would be to consider a similar vintage 430 engined Maserati gransport Spyder.....lower production volumes than the F430 Spyder and a sure fire investment on wheels ;)

    Ideally one in a desirable Mediterraneo blue Color...with solid service history from Barbagallo WA....Aus delivered and low miles. But....that would be the ideal.

    The money saved could be..... spent on another one....and another one!

    Or saved...and once that global meltdown in F430 prices is in full swing.....you could acquire one of each.

    ...or not.

    WTF are you two on about. Same maintenance costs, same running costs, less power, and NOT a Ferrari. 1st time Ferrari buyer?? You’ll STILL be a first time Ferrari buyer after you sell (give away) the Maserati WITHOUT having experienced Ferrari ownership

    Exactly, just dumb. A modern Maserato with 177k km? fkn lol. Maserati Gransport Spyder as a sure fire investment? Even bigger lol. And lol at the 1st post by "foibles". you don't happen to have an interest in the car at Barbagallo? :p
