    This thread is a good read.

    I'm not going to lie... I'm watching the prices on even GTS cars, and starting to think about how much money I could make if I sold mine. It is insane, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one thinking it.

    The only thing stopping me is knowing that I will NEVER be able to replace it with something as exciting, even at the recent prices. And the only car that comes even close that I would want, is sitting at about 300K CDN right now.

    I'll take my chances and keep it. If they tank in the future, at least I still have it. But if it continues to go up, who knows what a "bored" person might do in the off season.

    Dason
    First it was a '95 RT/10, then came the '01 GTS. Now it's a '14 GTS. They say the third time's the charm, I have to agree.

    Funny. My Lamborghini used to rev way up. Same with my Maserati. In the end they were mass produced even with the exotic names when compared with the Viper and they sold for a loss.

    Where would you guys value my ACR? You think it could fetch more then $250k? 1 of 1 with 9,000 miles - GTSR color scheme with the GTS interior in red.

    Help me with the math here, you went from where to where in 40 months?????

    yup and wildly overpriced with a ridiculous P/E despite record sales

    If you are going to sell I would ask $285K for your car. Probably isn’t another one in that color scheme with the red interior. Best of luck on whatever you decide. I vote keep it and ditch the Lambo instead.

    Haha thanks for the feedback! I think $285 makes a lot of sense.

    No way I can part with the Perf just yet. I am obsessed with the driving experience it provides. One of the best cars I’ve ever driven.

    So Cal + Spyder = Win.

    I would take the Lambo over the ACR 9 days out of 10 just because it's much more enjoyable to drive a car with the roof down...
    The ACR is meant to be driven on a track. Otherwise... meh...

    So at the end it's either a track car or a garage queen.

    The only thing that is probably more thrilling than an ACR and a Lambo is a Mclaren 765LT Spyder, but for what, 400k?
    and the sound is no match with a N/A engine...

    Agreed. I haven’t driven the 765 yet but I have driven the 675, 600, 720, etc. another car I’ve been wanting to drive is the Pista and the SVJ.

    Interesting and great comments but what would you do if car is really worth less than $250 with those 9000 miles on it? I'm thinking its worth $210-$230 at the most right now. Anything with less than 1000 miles are going for $265-$285.

    Where does everyone see values going for higher mileage ones both short term and long term? At 9k miles I feel like it’s the time to pull the trigger if I want to sell.

    The market is at its peak.

    It won't get higher for 25 years.

    It will go down significantly before then.

    Just depends on how long you want to keep it.

    Love how people have a crystal ball & can predict the future.

    Follow the trend because history repeats itself. Naturally aspirated, hand made, large engine exotics with manual transmissions are appreciating assets. Diablo, Countach, Ford GT, Gated F430, Gated LP640, and now Viper ACR Extreme for examples are all in this category. Cats Exotics put a SE 6.0 list out there & it said to not even talk to him unless the conversation starts at one million dollars. Ten years ago 6.0 Bulls were 180k.

    The subject snake is such a Beautiful spec & it is irreplaceable. I highly doubt you are at the Ceiling on it. My value predictions go back 1/2 decade and turned out to be on point notwithstanding a vast majority of naysayers.

    Buy it from him for $285k then.

    Put your $$$$ where your valuations are.

    Don't you think the COVID drama accelerated the Gen 5 prices (just like all the other cars) drastically? I agree with a lot of your points but there is no way the Gen 5 would be doing this well without COVID...

    Was about to buy a 720s spider but finally changed my mind because of lack of reliability seen on the track from other owners (Mclaren in general not the 720s in particular) and also the insurance, maintenance, aftermarket mods, all are prohibitive costs compared to Viper and Porsche. Also not N/A and automatic only...

    And the problem with the Viper gen 5 is very simple for me: it's not convertible.

    So I ended up with a gen 3 with tons of mods, including N/A 800bhp @ 7,000rpm ... and the sunbath. ;-)

    I would have a VERY hard time owning a McLaren outside of warranty.

    They have gotten better as far as reliability...but they still have a ways to go before being able to be called reliable.

    My dad almost bought a 620R last week, ended up passing, and it sold yesterday.

    I do not need or want two vipers & space is an issue. My car went up 300% in value in 40 months and I have the best snake ever made (by way of opinion) and it is the most exclusive special edition made (fact) so I really am not interested in owning his. However, if I were you I'd definitely go for it!
