When I speak of the car being a collectible, I'm speaking in terms of the rarer Ferrari's, especially of the past, i.e. GTO's, Daytona's and even the Testarossa's. You never know the way the market may turn out, but there will likely be a glass ceiling in the future of how much people will pay for them in comparision to their Enzo brethren.

Speaking of Ferrari, I was just in the store, and happened to run across one of the mags with the potential future Maranello on the cover.....needless to say, I haven't been this impressed, since the 575 Maranello's of years past.

....and like you said, some F-car dealers are very strict about their selling policies, or atleast it was that way for the Enzo's.

I thought it took a bit longer than 30 seconds for the value of an F430 to go up. Seems I'm wrong.

I think if it goes up in value it is collectible. However I understand what you mean.

I just did a search for this new Maranello, couldn't find anything. Got any links?

It was in the Road and track mag currently on the stands, but I was somewhat mistaken, it seems the car will be produced in Maranello, but is still a front engine GT. Even though the car is only a concept and plan for future production, it's supposedly built on the Maserati's chassis, and will be the first V8 front engine F-car.

It started with the F 40. The equivalent was the Porsche 959 at that time.

I'm in Australia. We don't even have road and track mag.

There's actually a seperate thread on this forum that mentions the same car.

Okay sorry about that... yeah I hate Holdens. They're as fun to drive as wagon drawn by gerbils... actually that sounds like more fun than driving my mother's Commodore. I actually get car sick DRIVING a Holden the ride is that sloppy. This from someone who can comfortably read in the car, and jumps off the plane full of energy after a 24 hour flight in economy.

It looks like a convertible 599... HOT! The 599, while not my cup of tea as far as driving concept goes, is one NICE looking car.

I wish I had enough money for a Ferrari.

Well, anything associated with GM should be viewed in that light.

I do have a little more respect for the Astra, Vectra, Barina and anything else Holden sells that's not from Australia. I'd still rather any brand out of Japan though.

I think GM has finally strarted to make some improvement in their lines, the Z06, ZR1 (not too keen on the styling), CTS-V and CTS-V coupe, definately are evidence of such.

It's their small car line-up, that continues to be less than steller.

Completely agree. Now, they just need to get rid of Bob Putz, I mean Lutz.
