Ferrari have announced that from 1st Jan 2018 prices will be rising by between 4-7% in the UK. A 4% rise is being applied to the V12 cars, while V8s will see a 7% rise. This comes as a surprise to most as this represents a considerable increase in prices over the cost of inflation. But if you are now planning to rush down to your local dealer to place an order before the new year, be warned that this impacts all models that are ordered but not built in 2017. An obvious frustration for owners whose cars will not be built in 2017. With the wait list closed for this year, there is no way to beat the price rise!

Most would think that this is perhaps the Brexit affect, but not so it appears. Ferrari have said that this is not due to economic or currency fluctuations, but really more of a usual price adjustment carried out by all manufacturers.

The entry level model is now the Ferrari Portofino for which the price has not yet been announced. In due to time the price increase is likely to included, and be priced in line with the remaining models. As a result, the first model to be impacted is the 488 GTB which will start at £196,863 (previously £183,984). The V12 version of the GTC4 Lusso will rise from £231,310 to £240,402.

Good news is that that one car has been exempt from the price rise and that is the GTC4 Lusso T, the V8 Twin Turbo version of the GTC4 Lusso. Also for track use, the price of the 488 Challenge car will also remain unchanged.
