But I thought what could be potentially interesting is talking about the five worst supercars or luxury cars you could buy right now. Now I do want to say that in general, basically, any car right now is a van idea.
The market is kind of so all over. The place that I don’t think buying a car in general right now is a bad idea, but if you were to buy a car, these five would probably be the worst now. Basically, what we’re going to be talking about here is depreciations cars that you could buy. That would basically just be a bad Buy and why they would be a bad buy. Depreciation, obviously, is the difference between.
When you buy the car the value it loses as soon as you put a few miles on it. One of the kings of this is the first car we’re going to be talking about right now. He Bentley Mulsanne speed kind of arrival to the rolls-royce phantom, its Bentley’s biggest most luxurious car, slightly pumped up version or the base Mulsanne, and it comes in we’re going to be talking euros, your European prices, because that’s what most of them are for sale.
It comes in list price at three hundred and seventy four thousand euros, which is a lot of money now, once you actually spec these, they run more like four hundred and twenty thousand euros, because the spec goes very, very fast loads of expensive options on these to The average price – let’s say around four hundred and twenty thousand euros so much money. Now these things tend to depreciate like a rock, which is why we’re speaking about it here, not many people a can afford them.
If they can, it seems that most people kind of tend to go for the rolls-royce phantom, which is a great car, there’s, actually nothing wrong with the Bentley Mulsanne speed. I’Ve never driven one myself, but I’ve been inside one. I think they look cool and I’m sure they’re super comfortable fantastic. I know they drink quite a bit of fuel over all. There’S nothing wrong with it. It’S just the supply is not particularly limited, but there isn’t a huge demand for these cars and seeing as they depreciate so much you can pick them up relatively speaking, comparing to the list price fairly cheap.
None of these cars – you can ever pick up for cheap. Realistically, but that means that why would you go buy a brand new one where you can pick one up for half the price? Only a few months later, an example I went on a website and found a car for sale for a hundred and fifty eight thousand eight hundred euros. This car had just under ten thousand miles, so fourteen thousand kilometers, which is mind-blowing, I mean obviously, that still ton of money for a luxury car of this type, obviously, but that we calculated brings you to 16 euros per kilometer.
I mean what that means, for example, for me to drive to the airport, would cost me in depreciation by kilometres alone, over 200 euros every time I go to the airport and then another 200 to come back 400 euros just to do the airport run because of The amount of depreciation per kilometer, it’s mind, blowing and let alone a car. That’S got 60,000 kilometers 70,000 kilometers on the clock. Cause people often drive these quite a bit.
So the fact that you can find quite a few for sales secondhand, because when they came out, people were buying them more than today, yet they still kept they’re kind of ludicrous list. Price means that these are the first in our list in terms of cars. To probably avoid especially right now, second on the list is the new BMW, m8 grand coupe, a a 617 horsepower four-door version of the kind of latest greatest from BMW, their top of the range luxury car four doors back seats, 617 horsepower from a v8 engine.
These things are really really cool. I think they look great they’ll perform fantastically and there is nothing again particularly wrong with the car mechanically they’re popular. They come from a German brand. You know they’re not going to break down, but yes again, there is no limit in terms of the supply of them, and people are buying them up quite a bit, which means that you’re going to be getting more and more good deals on them.
These start at 170 thousand euros around about there. Obviously once you’ve put a spec on them. If you’ve got a heavily Spectre, when you can be running around two hundred thousand euros personally, I don’t really see them holding above to be a hundred thousand euro mark for much longer than twelve months. I think they’ll be kind of coming down around a hundred thousand euros in that time, especially the ones of heavy mileage that makes them a pretty risky car to buy, because at that price range you’re going to be losing about fifty percent of the car within 12 Months, probably one to avoid think the coupe A’s would hold better, but the grand coupe age is from the fact that there’s less demand for them, people aren’t as interested in having them, but they’re still running a similar list price.
It just makes it a slightly more risky car to buy I’ve heard rumors of dealerships already offering really good deals on these knocking massive sums, like twenty thirty thousand euros off the price of the car, just to kind of get rid of them. So that’s never good. When dealerships are sitting on stocks, especially after Corona, what we’re going through now, I think the market for these BMWs go way down, but in 12 months I think it would be a great buy, but right now new I’d stay.
What can I just point out as well? This is just from me kind of geeking out on my computer. I’M no expert. This is from talking to friends. I had a conversation with some of the other youtubers. You know we I spoke to James spoke to Paul. I spoke to Sam spoke to Shmi and we all had a conversation, and these are kind of some of the cars that we thought would probably be the ones you shouldn’t really look at right now.
Now the next one is going to be fairly controversial because it is brand new. The McLaren, 765 LT MacLaren’s obviously have a reputation for depreciation. Now we all know that the 720s kind of shot down by 70s is now. You can find them for around 80 thousand pounds and the 600 LT even came flying down and the 675lt, which originally went up in value, came shooting. Now that is again down to the fact that McLaren are supplying so many different models, so many different cars so quickly and bunched together.
So there’s constantly kind of a new car coming out, and that means that the value of the ones that are currently for sale isn’t really holding that much and dealerships are indeed sitting on stock. Now this is probably the greatest supercar, arguably for sale. Right now I mean, I think, the 720 s of the stock 720s is the best all-round supercar money can buy. The 765 LT is just going to be an improved, more beefed up version of that so definitely warrants a higher list price, but is it going to be able to keep its value? I’M not sure rumor.
Has it it’s not particularly hard to get your hands on one which is never positive and it kind of arrived at the wrong timing, which obviously no one could plan with all of us being locked away in quarantine? For a few weeks, no one has been able to purchase any of these cars, so there’s going to be a big stock sat and the dealerships, and obviously also quite a few cancelled orders that usually results in dealerships giving good prices on cars, and that drops the Second-Hand value of them now just for examples sake.
The list price of these is listed at 350, eight thousand dollars, which is obviously a lot of money where you can already find a normal seven 20s for one hundred and ninety four thousand euros with only 7,000 kilometers. On line now, obviously, it’s going to be a completely different car, much much better to drive, but is it going to warrant being cost almost double of what you can get a secondhand 720’s? For I don’t know because once you spec these out they’re going to be close to the 400,000 euro mark again, it cut.
It kind of kills me to say this because I’m such a huge fan of the car – and I think McLaren are incredible car makers and if you the money and you want to go spec your own one, why not? If you know that the depreciation is going to be there, but I just like everyone to have all the information at least the way I see it and the way that I’ve maybe learnt about this over the years. So I think that the 765 LT is going to be hit pretty hard by a depreciation, maybe not in the first six months, but at least in the next year, you’ll be able to fix them up for a pretty good, buy spec dependent, of course.
So that’s another one that potentially right now I would maybe just not pull the trigger on this one’s going to be controversial. The Ferrari 488 pista this one is all the wrong way round so effectively when they came out. It was such a high demand for these, and you couldn’t get your hands on one, so they were selling for way over. They were selling for up to 100,000 over the list price. The list price is around 219 1000 euros without options very quickly.
That kind of jumps up with Ferraris so not actually a crazy list price for what it is, and the mid-engine v8 limited edition Ferraris have always kind of held quite well the Scuderia, the four five eight speciality Challenge Stradale. However, this is the first one with a twin turbocharged engine which for purists were other people who usually will drive the price of these cars up. It’S not the best.
It is absolutely stunning it is. I’Ve actually been lucky enough to drive one of these. It is such a great car to drive so much power so complete in the same way as the 765 LT would be. It is just an incredible car, so there’s nothing to fault it in terms of a mechanical object. However, they’re making quite a few of them, 3500 units made and we’re not even sure if that’s including the spiders, so there’s quite a few of them when you compare to specialities or to screw rears.
So when at first they were very hard to get your hands on at the moment, it’s actually not that hard. There are quite a few for sale on the second-hand market, and dealerships are actually building up quite a bit of a stock with them. So you can get some fairly decent deals for them, and a lot of cancelled orders actually came in on those cars as soon as they kind of started. Turning so they went up and they kind of appreciated at first then hit a bit of a roof, and now they’ve been coming back down so that you can buy them for list or under list price.
Just about. We managed to find an example of basically a brand new car for sale for three hundred and five thousand euros. It’S got a pretty heavy spec on it, so that actually puts it under list price, because this car with the spec it’s got, would have been around the three hundred twenty thousand euro mark. So it shows that when they did appreciate right now we’re on a downward curve and I think the current situation, the current car market is not going to help that.
So that’s one that could potentially fool people and you wouldn’t be expected to go down because it’s a limited edition 4-iron because there was so much hype about them at first. But right now it’s one of the cars which is actually dropping in price, the fastest and the more and more we come up for sale and more. There are available, the more dealerships are giving good prices on them, and the more people stack miles on them and more that price is going to shoot down.
I mean the biggest telling thing is that for five x, specialities actually cost more than pistas. Today, even though the cars older all the technology and definitely doesn’t perform quite as much it’s just what the purists want and there are less available. So therefore, the 488 pista another one that’s going to have to make this list the last one, and I don’t. This may get some stick, and this is the one which is kind of a bit of a shot in the dark, because we don’t really know if the Aston Martin valhalla there.
No I’ve definitely not said that right. It’S a tricky one same hyper car from Aston. Martin, we’re not entirely sure when they’ll come, we’ve been waiting for news on the Valkyrie. It’S bigger brother for wild bites are going to be around a million pounds. 986 horsepower 500 units made worldwide and a v6, a race-inspired, v6 stunning car, again sure will be great. To drive, won’t be able to fault it.
It’S kind of inspired by the Valkyrie. But what bothers me with this one, a lot more, is the fact that there is a Valkyrie there. So if you’re going for the hyper cars and a lot of these people, who actually have the money to put a million euros or a million pounds into a car, usually will have a few hyper cars or what I’ve bought a few things are and therefore will Have potentially already got a Valkyrie, so it’s kind of not quite the top of the range of what Aston offers and that can often knock a little bit off the price there.
But then what scares me a lot more is the fact that the vanquish concept which they revealed at the same time, it’s a very similar looking car, which is going to come in for basically a quarter of the price which is fairly terrifying, because if I have That kind of money – and I bought a million euro hyper car and there was a version for court of the price which looked very similar. I wouldn’t feel too confident the numbers 500, even though that’s very little, not that limited and Aston Martin.
Unlike Ferrari, you kind of have an ongoing thing with these hyper cars haven’t quite built up that order book of clients that are willing to spend a million pounds on one of their cars. So I’m not sure that they’re going to be able to really get rid of all 500 straightaway and again. That then leads us to the problem of there being a higher supply. Then there is the and that car potentially coming down, especially when you consider that if you’re spending a ton of money on an aston hyper car, why don’t you just go for the Valkyrie, even though it’s a lot more money? A lot of these people doesn’t actually make a huge difference there.
So, that’s why I see that, actually, sadly, being a hyper car that could potentially drop down and maybe hover around the half, a million six hundred thousand pound mark, which is still a ton of money when you put a million in of taking almost a half a Million pound hit, so that’s a car that I would actually stay away from. I am fully aware that none of us are probably in a state of being able to buy any of these cars right now is not the right time to do it.
This may be a completely irrelevant article, but it was something I was looking into. I find really interesting to find the deals which are good deals, but also what do we steer away from? Why, and when can we find those characteristics in other cars, because the more you learn about the ones that are going down, the more you’re likely to find out which ones are going to go up in the future?
