I found this interesting, so I thought I would share.
250,000kms in an f40?! Can anyone confirm??

So Allan's 360 had 100,000+ kms. And mhh is going to have one of the/the highest km 458 around...

I'd love to hear from anyone who has done heaps of kms in a Ferrari or what kms you've seen on them (ff?)

I did 1200+kms a month in my 360, but quickly slowed that down due to resale concerns.  Those braver than me should speak up now....

Did you buy it to drive it, or to resell it?   :)

I've got 160,000+K's on my Porsche 993 and growing, runs better now than when I bought it.

456 coming up to 80,000 - again, runs best when used.

If you have big K's on the car you'll be in a small group but if you're truly not enjoying it due to the tearup on resale, then get rid of the car and get something you can enjoy mate!

I, and many others (I'm sure), will be lining up to buy MHH's 458, regardless of k's. The import market will shaft your 360 resale harder than any driving you do. I'm not quite on your league but I've put 51,000 kms on my GTR from new in 2.5 years. I bought it to drive it. Pleasure>>>resale!

Great work - I'm at 28,000km in the 458 after 19 months.  I'm into value for money.  The more driving I do, the cheaper per km the ownership becomes.  It's a compelling economic argument.  :)

Not Ferrari's but I put 110,000km on my Lotus Elise in 2 years and 25,000km on the Maserati in a year. I agree about driving more often, the Maser only had 'quirks/issues' when I hadnt driven it for a few days!

Meh 100 000km........ try 228 000km
