When you think of “exotic” do you think “unaffordable?” It’s not your fault if you think that way. It’s how many of us think! However, it’s not necessarily only the cost of the car itself. There are things that need to be considered when it comes to the ownership cost of an exotic vehicle and don’t worry, we’ll dive right into that.
The Many Factors That Come into Play When Owning an Exotic Vehicle
Aside from the actual cost of the vehicle, there are other factors that come into play when owning an exotic car. From insurance to the cost of an oil change. It’s really not as simple as you may think to determine the true cost of ownership. The following are popular exotic cars and their roundabout pricing for maintenance:
- Ferrari: A typical oil change on a Ferrari F430 will run you $500 and about $800 for a Ferrari F360 Modena, or $1100 for a Ferrari F355. Belts cost $4,000 every 15,000 miles, brakes are $3,000, clutch can cost around $6,500, and spark plugs can cost $3,000.
- Lamborghini: The Murcielago will run about $2000 for an oil change and a Gallardo can cost $400. The Clutch for Murcielago is $12,000 and for the Gallardo is $3,500, spark plugs are $4,000 for Murcielago and $2,000 for Gallardo.
- Porsche: The cost of an oil change of a Porsche 911 Turbo can run about $300.
- Rolls Royce: For an oil change it can cost $1,000, brakes can run between $5,000-$30,000 for a full brake job and clutch can cost $5,000.
As you can see, prices can vary from model to model and the work they will require for maintenance. These prices aren’t those of a dealership and unfortunately, dealerships have other fees included and that’s why we have become the #1 dealership alternative. Catering to luxury and exotic car enthusiasts is what we love to do. Our team at Euromotive Performance have a passion for exotic cars and when it comes to owning one, we don’t like to rip people off and steer them away from actually owning another exotic car.
We know that you might be tempted to take your future or current exotic vehicle to a shop that advertises to be cheap and quick but keep in mind that not just anyone can repair an exotic car. A Toyota and a Bentley are 100% different. The parts are different and while they are both cars you can drive, there is a lot more specifics that a normal everyday mechanic wouldn’t be able to understand.
