What would you buy?

Recommended Posts

If you could buy one of these 3 cars what would you buy and why?  A 05 or 06 Ford GT, A 488 Ferrari GTB, or a late model McClaren?

 

Thanks, Stephen

As of this time right now, the McLaren would win hands down.  I owned a GT and the main issue now is parts availability - some basic service parts are simply not available, and some other parts cost as much as a new Mustang.  For this reason insurance rates on the GT are sky rocketing.  Plus there are some really basic design problems that were never fixed (you will eventually replace all of the gauges, among others).    Ferraris have high sustaining costs, ie, basic service will set you back a big chunk of change, whereas the McLaren's performance is top and they are serviceable.   Time marches on and the later model vehicle will simply be the best choice.  

The 720s is a marvelous piece of engineering.   I came close to getting a 675LT but decided I could drive any of them.  And low mileage MP4-12C are all over the place. 

Also, don't buy in to the 05-06 Ford GT right now thinking you'll come out ahead financially.  Prices are dropping like a rock.  Ask me how I know.
