One of the most common pieces of advice you get when you are looking for a car is that you can save a lot of money by purchasing a second-hand vehicle.
It is generally true that a new car’s value depreciates rapidly in its first year after being sold and that the depreciation starts as soon as the car is driven off the showroom floor.
The depreciation is, however, highly dependent on the make and model car, the milage, and its condition.
A True Price study revealed that affordable Volkswagen, Kia, and Toyota cars in South Africa retain their value better than most competitors.
It is also well known that desirable high-end cars like Lamborghinis and Ferraris can be a good financial investment.
The Ferrari F12tdf in Giallo Triplo Strato, for example, has doubled in price. Its original price was $621,624, which increased to around $1.3 million a few years later.
In South Africa, people looking for a high-end supercar or ultra-luxury vehicle should also be prepared to spend millions.
The most expensive second-hand cars – which include the usual suspects like Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and McLaren units – range between R10 million and R16 million.
To see what is on offer in the high-end second-hand market, TopAuto looked at the latest listings on AutoTrader.
