Looking at cars.com and auto trader, 135k is a very good price, especially if not a demo or press car.

As for a press car... my V12 is a press car and has been flawless so far. We'll see when it crumbles 2 weeks after my warranty expires how I feel. At this time however, I am not dogmatically opposed as many forum members are. If you negotiate additional warranty and get a reduced selling price, much/some? of the risk is accounted for...that's the plan at least. Not worried about resale because I'm not selling any time soon.

135k for a v12 or 105k for a '13 V8?? Can't go wrong unless you choose neither...

Sounds like a good deal, and a no brainer. You will immediately take a big depreciation hit as soon as you drive the new V8 off the lot. Much less so with the V12 and . . . you'll have a V12!

Didn't realize list was that high. Regardless, the V12 has already taken a huge hit (list around $200k) and will likely depreciate less than a new V8.

This is a very good point. When figuring how much a car cost you to own, you have to consider your purchase price minus your selling price. From this view point, that V12 could very well end up being cheaper than the V8!
