Well said I agree.Long Term, everything goes up in value when you're dealing with a rare product like this. Regardless of what kind of people are out there to buy it, but esp. when it's from an exotic marque like this.
Most 30-50+ year old Lamborghinis aren't going for cheap. To put an even finer point on it, look at the price of 1990s Japanese imports (NSX, Supra, Integra R, RX7, etc), these are seeing some massive increases due to rarity (unmolested versions tend to go for more) and a desire for a simpler design. Also, technology would only get more complicated in cars (even the Huracan is a tech extravaganza), that actually will probably make the simplicity of Gs more desirable.
Most replies have supported the inexorable climb in value that all exotics experience. Not sure I agree that these cars will be legislated off the road since there will be so few of them to ruin the environment. History has shown us the common thread of pricing on these cars. The initial excitement will cause some to pay over sticker to be the first on their block to own one. When supply catches up to demand, the price will drop below sticker and then depreciation sets in. At some point the cars will bottom out in value (we may be close to that with the Gallardo if we haven't seen it already) and then slowly begin to rise for all but the heavily abused examples. The image and scarcity of Lamborghini will accelerate the desirability to own an older one, with the accompanying increase in value, much faster than the similar interest in higher volume cars like Mercedes or Corvette. As always, the special models will command higher prices. We're already seeing a premium for Superleggeras, Spyder Performantes, Balbonis and manuals that will only widen in the future. But even the base cars will continue to appreciate. The least desirable Ferrari of the 1960s, the rather pedestrian 250 GTE, will still set you back over $300K today for a good one. Granted, that's a time horizon beyond 10-20 years, but it is a valid example. I saw an absolutely perfect GTE sell for $2900 in 1971 when it was 8 years old. It was probably another 8-10 years before the value started to climb noticeably, but by the mid-1980s those were $50K cars. This is just one example of the bottom-of-the-barrel model of an exotic whose value climbed as it's more famous stablemates commanded higher prices. Yes, it is a Ferrari, so the rise is probably higher than normal. But the point is that the rise has been there, is still there and will be there for rare, exotic cars that enthusiasts love to own.Just out of curiosity, where do you see Gallardo values in 10-20 years?
You forgot the 50TH ANNIVERSARY cars.944 turbo 25K made have gone up 50-60% in value over the last 5 years as people who are now looking to spend disposable income and purchase their poster cars move into the market. As far as the Gallardo goes, the non standard ones (SE, Nera, Superleggera, Performante, Balboni, Super Trofeo, Super Trofeo Stradale) will see the largest increase in value as will the manual trans units.
