    In terms of a collector?


    Also, maybe the same answer, but what Ferrari model is considered the King Ferrari of all Ferrari's?

    Any Ferrari in my garage. :)

    The answers you will hear...

    250 GTO
    P3/4
    125
    166
    TR (the old ones!)
    Any of the F1 cars
    Modern folks will go for the 333/288/F40/F50/Enzo

    I think majority would say 250 GTO. A special car driven on the street that won numerous races. Really defined much of what Ferrari is.

    From pure looks I think most would give the P3/4 or old TR's the nod.

    Your last name isn't a color is it?

    Never mind, I looked at your profile. You aren't someone else I was thinking of.

    Not that I am aware of, but thanks for not brining up how much it sounds like pizza.

    IMO, it would be the F40 for the general public. For me, F50 please.

    250GTO is the number 1, then F40, F50, Enzo, & 288GT.

    "Desireable" is an ambiguous word. If you take it to mean the most sought after, it's not a GTO. How many of us here are looking to buy a GTO? Or a 288, Enzo, etc. Not a lot!

    The most desireable is the model that the most people are looking to buy. For new cars, which is selling for the most over MSRP? For used cars, I'd say the 246 and Daytona are very easy to sell; easier than a nice 308 at a "fair" price. How long does it take to sell a really nice 308i for $35k? That's QV range, but a truly prime, sorted, medium miled 308i should fetch that, eventually.

    Daytonas and 246's seem to be getting prices that owners are willing to take. That's why both are appriciating more than just a few years ago.

    There is no king model. It all depends on the collector.

    Some like the hand made coach built one offs from the 50's.

    Others like 60's race cars.

    Some like to build collections around the modern supercars (288, F40, F50, Enzo).

    Others like F1 cars.

    Point is, people collect the cars they like, and not necessarily what everyone else likes.

    I'd take one of those as well. I had a 275GTB/4 and a 166MM years ago and had a lot of fun, however an SWB has always had a place at the top of my list. - George
