    Hi All,

    I've got another 365 GT4 2+2 which I've owned for sometime now. It was used regularly as a fun, short distance car but I'm now thinking about making a change.

    If I was to sell the 365 what would I replace it with? It doesn't need 4 seats, doesn't need to be a Ferrari but I like the rarity value in a 365. The noise is quite important to me. I'd like to replace it with a car of equal value but don't mind putting another 10k on top.

    Any suggestions?

    Hi where are you in the UK and what are you looking for for your 365?

    I think the 365 GT4 is a fairly unique car. What are you looking for? Open air car? More performance? Less money to maintain?
    When or if I sell my 365 it will be because I will want a different type of car.

    Nathan, it’s not for sale yet.

    Jim, I’m not sure what I need from it. I’ve got a Porsche Turbo Cabriolet for open top driving, a Lambo for drama and a Porsche GT3 for blasting around in. I’ve also had a 2x 355, a 360 Modena and Spider, 430 Spider and various other bits but none of them seem to have stuck around. I guess I’d like a V12 carb 2 seater but something that looks more wild/Supercar like. I briefly looked for a white Ferrari Testarossa but the prices seem to be a bit insane for what the car offers.

    Some interesting and unique / cool looking Lambos in early to mid 70s.

    If you want a carby V12 2 seater, the next one will be double the price of the 365, maybe 3 times the price

    When you see some of those prices it makes no sense why or cars are so inexpensive.

    I think it would be best to just keep the car long term as the alternatives cost significantly more and offer a very similar experience. I still may look to add a white Testarossa to the fleet.

    I have a 412 manual 5 speed which I love. Had a 550 for 4 years , sold it and tried Maserati for the first time, a 4200 GT spyder with a manual 6 speed. You might consider a 4200 Spyder or Coupe - add a Larini exhaust and you'll be intoxicated with the noise! Huge amount of fun and performance for relatively little money. Ferrari engine, hand built, and imo timeless shape. I really like it.

    I've had a Maserati 3200 GT and a Gransport(with secondary decat and X-Pipe). Great noise but it offered little else to me.

    Apparently there is quite a gap from the 3200 to the 4200.

    There is a huge difference between the two.

    The Gransport is essentially is revised 4200, I agree there is a big difference between a 3200 and 4200 but I just did not get on with them.

    What you need is a Lotus Super 7 or Caterham. Not a V12 but ticks all the other boxes for me. You need to be selfish and helps to be masochistic though.

    That’s going to be tough to do.

    Would the Jaguar E-type V12 be a possibility?

    The Jaguar E-Type is a good shout. A friend owns a Semi-Lightweight which I've always liked but it isn't a cheap car. I'll do some further digging.
