Can Anyone Buy a Ferrari?
Have you always dreamed of owning a classic Italian car like a Ferrari? Admit it; perhaps you fancy yourself as the neighborhood Ferris Bueller, playing hooky from work while you spend the day driving around in a classic Italian sports car. As tempting as it may be to buy a Ferrari, everyone knows it isn’t the initial purchase price that hurts your wallet but the maintenance, insurance, and repair bills. Oh, the repair bills! It is worth saying twice to emphasize the point.
We wanted to pull together a list of the Top 10 Ferraris listed on Classics on Autotrader just for you - the dreamer inside all of us. We narrowed this list down mainly by cars that caught our eye, for one reason or another, instead of merely looking at the lowest or highest priced Ferraris for sale. You will find the cars we listed are a mix of dream cars while others could be considered, dare we say, affordable Ferraris.
Technically not all these Ferraris can be considered a “classic”, meaning they aren’t 20 years or older, but all are real cars offered for sale by either a Ferrari dealer or a private owner. If some of the links to the actual vehicle listings don’t work, that means the car has either been sold or is no longer for sale. None of the sellers have compensated us for appearing on this top 10 list and none of the sellers were aware they even made the list before we published it. We will periodically update this list of top 10 Ferraris for sale from time to time so be sure to check back occasionally.

As of late June, there were no details available from Sotheby’s about this car unfortunately however a similar 212 Barchetta sold at a 2015 auction for around $7.5 million. There were only 28 units produced. We think a final hammer price of $12 million is feasible.

Honorable Mention: 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Tribute ($169,900)
We debated a lot whether this 1961 Ferrari 250 GT SWB recreation should make this list. To be clear, this is not an original 250 GT which would normally cost around $12 million but is a recreation “tribute” car. However, it looks stunning and for a fraction of the original this could be yours. The car was built in England but we aren’t sure by who. If it was built by GTO Engineering, who is known for their 250 SWB Revival, we’d buy this car in a heartbeat. Check out this video walk around tour and short clip of the car being driven.
Top 3 Most Expensive Ferraris
These are the Top 3 most expensive Ferraris for sale on our site as of the publish date of this article.
#1 1959 Ferrari 250 ($1.25 million)
Available from Accelerate Auto Group just outside of Dallas, TX, this red convertible Ferrari 250 could be a short wheelbase version of the 250, as most convertibles were. It features a V12 engine, and although the dealer has posted no details on the car, it is possible this is a California Spyder version. If so, this isn’t a short wheelbase model since those started in 1960. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off fans will recognize this as the car from the movie. Although this is a fantastic 250, we are more partial to the 250 GT Berlinetta coupe version, but beggars can’t be choosers.
#2 1962 Ferrari 250GT California Spyder ($1.2 million)
This 250GT California Spyder has undergone a total restoration and was rebodied. Offered for sale from European Autobody in Boca Raton, FL, the dealer hasn’t listed the mileage but there is a photo which appears to show only 717 miles on this car. We are left to assume those are the new miles on the rebuilt engine.
#3 2022 Ferrari SF90 Stradale ($899,900)
The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is Ferrari’s mid-engine plug-in hybrid electric sports car with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and this particular listing has only 110 miles on it. Ferrari states the SF90 Stradale can reach 60mph in 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of 211mph. Contact Ferrari Maserati Alfa Romeo of Fort Lauderdale.

How Much is a Ferrari?
As you can see from this list here, the cost of a Ferrari depends on several factors. The price for any specific Ferrari model could range from $40,000 to over $1,000,000. In doing the research for this Top 10 list, however, we found a lot of used Ferraris for sale in the $75,000 to $150,000 price range, so if we were going to set a budget, we would concentrate on that price range. If you aren’t picky about the model, this is where opportunities exist. Don’t forget to set aside at least $15,000 to $30,000 per year for the astronomical Ferrari repair costs.
In terms of a monthly car payment, if you purchased a Ferrari for $150,000 and put down $25,000 down at a 3.5% interest rate over 60 months and a 6% state and local tax rate, your monthly payment would be $2,438 per month.
If you’re interested in finding the cheapest Ferrari, you’ve come to the right place, but buyer beware as some of these low-priced examples may have hidden issues. The Mondial, produced from 1980 – 1993, often can be found for sale for around $75,000 and the more desirable 308 GTB/GS, made from 1975 – 1985, goes for around $80,000 to $130,000. We also found 412’s, 348’s, 355’s and 400i’s all with asking prices of under $100,000 recently. We highly recommend a pre-purchase inspection by a reputable Ferrari mechanic on any car you’re considering buying.
Ferrari Maintenance Costs
This YouTuber documented all his costs for owning and maintaining his Ferrari over the course of 12 months. While this owner included $24,000 in after-market, optional modifications to his Ferrari in his maintenance cost, the total he spent in payments, insurance, and service came to just over $55,000, which averages out to $4,606 per month. Without all the optional mods, his 12-month ownership cost would have been $31,000. If you’re thinking about buying a 2010 - 2015 Ferrari 458 Italia, we would highly recommend watching this video.
