Can buying a supercar be an investment?
We have all heard the legends. People buying a car for a small fortune only having it turn into a large fortune. There are so many supercars out there, could one be a gold mine just waiting to print money? Can buying a supercar be an investment? We can provide some answers.
Do supercars go up in value?
Not all supercars appreciate. In fact, a majority of them will lose value over time. However, keeping a pristine example through the decades can turn even the most average supercar into a valuable collector’s item.
This may mean more money for you, but it also represents a significant investment in something that you do not get to enjoy. You have to worry about storage, upkeep, and maintenance, all in a car that you want to limit miles on and keep from the track.

Even with all that prep, work, and time, you may not be sitting on a money-printing machine by the end of it. Ultimately, it’s the rare supercars that people will want, and these are often the ones that spike in value right after they are made available, which makes sense as they are typically only available to a few. The Aventador SVJ 63 immediately comes to mind.
What makes older supercars more valuable?
Collectors often want to own a piece of history. They want old cars from the brands that they already know and love, and they are willing to pay more to get pristine examples of these cars.
The rarer a car is or at least is perceived to be, the more that value will go up so long as it’s from a brand with a real reputation behind it like Lamborghini.
Should a supercar be considered an investment?
In most cases, no. A supercar should not be considered an investment. You should buy it to enjoy, and typically, even if you enjoy it, you won’t lose out too much on its value.
Many supercars depreciate much differently than even luxury vehicles. If you need evidence of that, just check out our pre-owned Lamborghini inventory here at Lamborghini Palm Beach.
