The scale and performance of this V12 icon are remarkably close to a 2016 MX-5 Mazda Miata. So we thought it would be fun to show how much each costs per pound. The results are shocking, to say the least.
If we divide the $23,000,000.00 total expected price for the Ferrari by its 2425 curb weight, we land on a cost-per-pound that is about 10 grand. That is some fancy potato salad, folks!
The multiplier between the two per-pound prices is even more astounding. The Ferrari costs a staggering 115000X more than the humble Miata.
Might we suggest they throw an MX-5 in with the Ferrari sale to the lucky buyer? It is certainly affordable! In fact, you could have almost a thousand MX-5 mares for the price of this one thoroughbred.
Not half bad for what we consider an E-Type knockoff from Ferrari….
