    None. They made too many of all of them. 333 SP is probably more in the running for collectability, but then again, its not streetable.

    Since there are so many of each model made look for cars with rare options combinations.

    Perhaps a 355 gts f1 without air conditioning?

    The "hot" models with the least or strangest combination or factory options tend to be the ones that become valuable in other lines of cars.

    Rare colors don't count for much but an early example with say, no abs would be mORe valuable.

    Cars that are under appreciated in the current maket and tend to get trashed, thus becoming more rare in 20 years.

    I'd say the 348 and 512tr are good candidates for long term future collectibles.

    A sure bet would be the 512M

    it may not be a Ferrari but the Mclaren F1 seems to be the closest in spirit to the 250 GTO, both streetable and both capable of storming round le-Mans with little modification. or maybe the F40lm if it can be road registered

    the Ferrari FX has the best chance, but I wouldn't want to have to replace the gearbox..

    I agree with Andrew - probably not going to be another production Ferrari - they make too many of them. More likely the Mclaren. Porsche GT1 and CLK GTR will hold their value because of rarity as well. 512M in U.S. version has definite potential to be collectible. But I vote for the FX
