Having already secured an early example of the sold-out Ford GT (and shipping it off for €200,000 above list price), Simon Fragopoulos is a supercar dealer who knows how to play the market.  

Starting out in the business just over 12 months ago, he's given us his predictions about future values of some of the industry's most-loved and highly anticipated supercars.

Autocar has no relationship with Fragopoulos beyond interviewing him for these articles. You can read more about him and his views on supercar dealing here.

WINNERS

FORD GT 

+€200,000

European customers have yet to receive their cars, but the trading of autumn deliveries has already begun at a €200,000 premium. Fragopoulos predicts a volatile future, though, saying prices are likely to see-saw over the next few years.

FERRARI 812 SUPERFAST 

+€50,000-€100,000

The last naturally aspirated V12-powered Ferrari will have keen collector status even though it is not an official limited run car. Premiums are already running at €50,000 to €100,000.

FERRARI 488 SPECIALE 

+€100,000

It’s not officially confirmed yet (pictured is the 488) but is expected to follow, as per the formula laid down by the 458 Special.. Believe the rumours and the 750bhp-plus 488 Speciale will be presented this summer. Expect premiums of €100,000 over list price for the first examples.

LAMBORGHINI URUS

+€80,000-€100,000 

An SUV with a premium? Look at what happened with the Bentayga and you’d better believe it. First Edition, fully specced versions of the Bentley commanded an €80,000 to €100,000 premium for the first six months and the ‘Rambo Lambo’ will do the same.

LOSERS

FERRARI F12 tdf

MID TO LONG-TERM INVESTMENT

Limited-edition Ferraris will always do well, but the imminent arrival of the 812 Superfast means the F12 tdf is close enough in spec and performance for its value to fall. Even so, Fragopoulos says the F12 tdf is still a great mid to long-term investment.

FERRARI 458 SPECIALE

-€100,000

Expect a €50,000 dip in prices in the wake of the launch of the 488 Speciale in the summer, with the Speciale Aperta losing around €100,000. As above, though, the last naturally aspirated V8 Aperta will make a superb mid- to long-term investment.

LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR SV COUPE AND ROADSTER

-€100,000

Proof that the evolution of a unlimited-production car is poison for the outgoing limited-edition model. Although asking prices at dealerships remain at €400,000 to €450,000 for delivery-mileage coupés, Fragopoulos expects a price drop of €100,000.

MCLAREN P1 AND P1 GTR

-€200,000

The once booming demand for the P1 (and the Porsche 918 Spyder) has slowed slightly. It remains a great long-term bet, but the dip in demand ahead of the new wave of Mercedes-AMG and Aston/Red Bull hypercars is expected to take around €200,000 off asking prices.

Porsche????

No Porsche comments? I would guess that the special manual 911s like the 4.0 GT3RS and the R will take a hit when the option for manual returns in the no doubt better new and improved 4.0 GT3.

I'm glad I'm not a magazine

I'm glad I'm not a magazine editor. Not everything has to be a thoroughly researched, watertight piece of writing that will stand up to any kind of forensic interrogation. This is gossip from a murky world in which you are never going to get clarity, proofs or hard evidence. I agree that Autocar should have some sort of disclaimer but those who are making the negative comments obviously see it for what it is and don't need one. What do you want? Bills of sale signed by Russian oligarchs?
