    EVO long term test of LP640....Mike!

    Nicked this from another forum...(so thanks for that)

    Since September 2004 they have owned a Lambo Murciélago on a long term test and I thought it was interesting to see how much ownership of such a beast would cost long-term.

    Duration of test - 34 months
    Overall mileage - 44,658
    Average fuel consumption - 10mpg
    Servicing - Pounds18,425 (4 in all)
    Consumables - Pounds28,244 (2 clutches, 8 sets of tyres, brake discs, 8 sets of pads, replacement crankshaft)
    Depreciation - Pounds87,655
    Fuel - Pounds20,072

    So all in it has cost Pounds154,936 or Pounds4,541 per month, or Pounds3.46 per mile...

    Gulp! Maybe one day.

    Hi ResB,

    That orange Murcielago is owned by Simon - I met him at Sant'Agata from my visit to Italy last year His car is closer to 60k miles now

    With all those figures added including depreciation, my Cayenne Turbo costs about the same to run per mile over here with our high car prices

    Thats what I like to see a super car that's driven, hats off to the guy.

    Re: EVO long term test of LP640....Mike!

    so ~9K per month? does that include insurance?

    Re: EVO long term test of LP640....Mike!

    Often most important element of cost of ownership of any new, high-end car is deprec....

    Seems absurd to keep any of these cars beyond one yr...and incur increm deprec/svcg/consumables costs for an obsolete, scuffed-up >1yo car....

    That said, suspect cost of getting a new car (at MSRP or mkt) every yr; driving it 15K mis before trade-in for next latest/greatest car may not be as expensive as one may assume.....esp in CA, where $0-down leases are cheap/sales-tx efficient and where one can drive these cars as daily commuters yr-round w/no need for silly winter tires/wheels....

    Suspect 599 is likely far cheaper in this annual use/trade-in scenario than is any Lambo.....and new 599 (obtained at US mkt price) prob has similar one-yr use cost to loaded 997TT or CL65....if get 599 at MSRP in US, 599 has stunningly cheap one-yr daily use costs.....making any L/P/AMG seem rather profligate (if one ignores "cost" of elevated passive safety risks of F vs P/AMG)......

    Re: EVO long term test of LP640....Mike!

    Best to let someone else drive it for the first year and then take it for a year. The initial depreciation is the worst and will slow down after the first year.

    Re: EVO long term test of LP640....Mike!

    WBH, that does not make any sense to me at all. The biggest hit in depreciation is the first year. So getting rid of it is the worst thing to do if depreciation is your concern. Unless again we are talking about the US Ferrari scheme where cost of entry is patience or over paying to join.
