    Ferrari California test drive on snow

    The California was recently introduced in Norway, which means that you have to testdrive it in conditions like these:

    (Never mind the norwegian commentary, he doesn't really say anything interesting)

    It will cost a fairly reasonable - compared to other cars in its class - 320 000 euro in Norway because of its relatively low CO2 emissions. They already have about 40 orders for it.

    320 is a lot for that car. How much is a 997 Turbo Convertible in Norway?

    Re: Ferrari California test drive on snow

    320 is a lot for any carSmiley

    The 997 TT Convertble is a steal at 305 000 euro, for the manual gearbox. But noboy buys a manual, only old farts with too much money and no taste can afford them.Smiley

    Since our beloved goverment changed the car tax to be more CO2 based (and not enginevolume) from 2009, the 997TT Cab jumped 50k euro in price from jan 1st.

    This is insane! How can you manage in this country to drive nice cars. This is just to high.

    Lucky bastards who got their 997TT ahead of the new Taxes - the resell value pushed up by 50k in a second ;)


    Re: Ferrari California test drive on snow

    high taxes on cars are also in Sweden,Finland and Denmark?

    Re: Ferrari California test drive on snow

    We don't drive nice cars is the answer LarsSmiley

    The average car age in Norway is one of the oldest in Europe. And even Albania build more roads than we do, even if Norway probably is the richest country in Europe pr person.

    The problem is that car tax has over time become such a large income that the goverment relies on it to balance the budget. And as you can see, nobody in charge has a clue about the importance of infrastructure.

    Having such large oil reserves in the North Sea has made Norway one of the richest in the world, but it is also a curse. Because it means that those in charge sit on their asses and drink coffee in the cafeteria, while we pump oil worth billions and billions up from the Nort Sea, without thinking about preparing the country for what happens when the oil runs out....Smiley

    Car taxes are not so bad in Sweden and Finland Andrea, but my only consolation is that Denmark has even higher car taxes than usSmiley

    The main problem is that we don't produce any cars in Norway (or Denmark) and do not have a large and powerful car industry to tell the goverment to stuff their taxes up the... We have to import all the cars, which means that they can put an insane amount of import tax on them. And that's the reason why I had a 986 Boxster in my garage and not a brand new 987.

    Re: Ferrari California test drive on snow

    Sweden actually is quite a bit cheaper when it comes to cars. Finland is not good...

    R8 for example is 206 600€ in Finland and a similar ~220 000€ in Norway, but "only" ~95 000€ in Sweden. These prices are for a manual base R8 taken from Audi's web pages.

    The difference in smaller, more fuel efficient cars, is probably not nearly as big. 


    Re: Ferrari California test drive on snow

    Toyota Aygo 1.0 VVT-i (AYGO) 3door

    Not a 100% difference, but pretty high for cheap cars, too. 

    Finland: 12 050€

    Sweden: 8575€

    Norway:  14 352€

     I used google for the currency rates.

    thanks Tim for the clear answer!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.
