Definitely see CGT prices to just keep going up just like the F40 has continued to do.

The day an F40, CGT and the like go to 100K is the day the world has SERIOUS issues in which case you will be glad you can go downstairs in your house thats now worthless, and turn on your CGT.......

That moment will be Priceless..

Not wanting to be insensitive, but the truth is that in the case of the CGT with such limited number, each one that is destroyed, decreases the potential supply thus increasing prices. I cannot see crashed of the CGT hurting their prices, they're are not Teslas on Fire.

Second thought, on the analog cars, cars I believe has great potential in the future to become collector's item are the 997.1 with Mezger Engine, turbo, gt2, gt3.

I dont know about you guys, but Im going for seconds on the CGT. I believe, hands down, it is the GREATEST sports car ever made.

F40's pale in comparison. F50's may be just a step under. You might say an F1 is better, but certainly not affordable so there is doubt in my mind.

The CGT is already not affordable to 98% of americans. Most who can afford a CGT can afford an F40, F50 or F1.

Those are, IMO, not even worth mentioning with the CGT. They're just in a realm above the great CGT. It's what the CGT's designers aspired it to be like and in that, it succeeded, but it is not better in any way.

My flame suit is on as I realize what forum I'm posting this on.

Well, at least 8 editors/writers at EVO who drove them all back to back do not agree with you.......

I certainly respect their opinions.

Also I did not intend to derail the thread. It seems we all agree CGT prices are high and short term will go up. Long term is anyone's guess. It's easier to forecast the next economic recession than where CGT prices will be 20 years from now in 2033.

Well no wonder a bunch of brits picked the F1.

CGT was right there, I dont know how I am really wrong?


Back to the topic, you cant help look at cars in the same category and wonder why CGT's are still less than half the value. Certainly not half the car at $375k for a good car. I dont know how it goes cheaper at anytime?

Have you looked at F1 prices lately?
The one that sold at Pebble Beach in August at auction went for $8.35M, there are two more that sold privately in Europe this year for that much or more. #029, which sat in a Japanese BMW dealership showroom most of its life sold a couple months ago with only its delivery miles on it for a rumoured $12M.
I love all of these analog supercars, but I think the F1's pricepoint puts it into a different stratosphere of collectors.

The S&P 500 appreciation comment brought some good clarity to this thread for me. As the OP I posted this thread because I was wondering why the CGT had gone up so much in the last 6 months (from low-mid $300's to mid-high $300's). I think the S&P comment hit the nail on the head-- the main reason is that the S&P has gone up 30% in the last year.

Hello gentlemen. While on the subject of CGTs, I have been trying to get my hands on a low mileage (under 3000 miles) one with out success. If anyone can assist me in locating one in preferably red, black or yellow, it would be greatly appreciated.
