Let's not mention older Ferrari's.....that's usually where the lust factor begins for me, but you're right to an extent, not all Ferrari's would considered collectable, the F355 (one of my faves) is just not comparable to the old GTO's and Daytona's.
However, when I say none becomes a piece of scrap yard metal, I'm speaking in reference to the desires they induce. Alot of pricing and collectability depends on limited production numbers, heritage and desirability, i.e. most old Ferrari's, 300 SL's, or 427 AC Cobra's. I'm not aware of the production numbers of the R8, but hopefully it won't go the way of the NSX.
