How long had you had the car, less than a year, right? That's already $71K in depreciation. 24K miles is a lot, though. Did you actually have 24K on the car?I asked what the trade in for mine would be right before the wreck and with 24 thousand miles on it they told me 269. I paid 340 for it. There was a used Volcano Yellow one with 1100 miles on it that I was looking at who wanted 5 thousand over the MSRP of 359. I'm getting a new 2019 Volcano Yellow with more carbon on it than that one for 366, so that used 2018 might be a little over priced. I think they're holding their value better than any other McLaren.
Just out of curiosity what is that based on? The car has been out for over a year now and I haven’t seen many resale’s that much lower than msrp. The OP said he would have about 4K miles in it. If Christine was offered 269k with 24k miles from a dealer that would put the market value higher (the dealer will give you the lowest price). Again, just curious how you came up with those numbers. My crystal ball has been broken for some time.
no way. Nothing else out there even in the same universe for that price. Id say $250k very bottom after 2 years. May never get down to that. Look at other 2 yr. old competitors. They are not getting down below that very often.
In 2 years it will lose about 10-20% from original retail depending on condition and miles. We are a year in and they are holding well.
1) There aren't many of these available in comparison to other cars such as the 488
2) There is nothing that compares performance wise and wont be for a while.
3) To order new is 6+months
4) The next model is years out, the LT which will cost more is still 2+ years out.
If the economy takes a dump then this all changes because I bet there are some that are leveraged and may need to fire sale.
There are a lot of dreamers hoping for them to tank so they can hopefully get one but the word is out how incredible these cars are and in fact I believe they have pulled up or stabilized the values of the other models.
Call me in two years if your willing to take $200K.What do you think a $346k msrp 720s will be worth in 2 years with 4,000 miles? My car is being delivered next week and thinking that will be my time horizon and mileage. I’m assuming that will still be 6 months before spyder arrives.
