Early Ferrari 458 Italia customers are selling on their cars for a £25,000 premium, according to reports.

The list price of the Ferrari 458 Italia begins at £169,545, but private resale prices are closing on £200,000, as would-be owners look to jump the three-year waiting list for new cars.

That price is set to rise further, too, as many of the first cars out of the factory will be fitted with options. Examples include racing seats at £4276, having Ferrari shields on the wings at £945 or a luggage set for the rear bench at £2987.

UK deliveries of the 458 will begin in the summer.

Paying a premium for a production car is always foolish - look back at any production car that fetched a premium when new; e.g. Aston's V8 Vantage .... what happens next ???

Depends on what your motives are. If you want to have a nice car it's not foolish, if you are buying it to make a profit (which you won't be since you're paying a premium) then it is foolish. So, basically, your argument is a non-starter.
