How much does it cost to maintain a Ferrari?

Probably even the least passionate person in the automotive world, if he were to think of the sports car par excellence, would say without thinking twice: Ferrari.

The Prancing Horse and the typical red color have always distinguished the most iconic models and are now universally a symbol of Italian sportiness on four wheels. To contribute to the construction of the myth, were undoubtedly also the feats of Formula One and of drivers who have inextricably linked their name to that of the Maranello house, starting from Villeneuve, passing through Schumacher, just to mention two names, but the list could be long. It is evident that there is not only one reason why Ferrari is for many the absolute myth, a sort of mirage or emblem, if one is lucky enough to own it, of having "arrived".

The current range of the house, founded by Enzo Ferrari, offers various opportunities. Although these are very powerful cars, with extremely attention to detail and with top quality finishes, they are not all extreme cars, but also cars suitable for daily use. For example, there is the Purosangue, the first SUV and the first Ferrari car with four doors and four seats (in the past other models had been equipped with rear seats), even if grabbing one won't be easy, given that production will be limited. An alternative, without arriving at cars more suitable for the track than for everyday driving, is the coupé +2 called Roma, even if "+2" is so to speak, since on the rear seats, just mentioned, there is It is possible to welcome only children. The engine, mounted in a central-front position, allows the car to have an elegant and aggressive line at the same time. There is no doubt that it is a true sports car, but getting on board is as practical as a sedan, and one almost forgets that under the bonnet it has a 620 HP/456 kW V8 engine.

Naturally, the Ferrari range does not stop at these two models, but in the price list we also find more "sharp" versions such as the F8 Tributo (natural evolution of the now very famous 458 Italia), SF90 Stradale, 296 GTB and 812 GTS (also born as direct development of another sports car, the 812 SuperFast). The powers involved in this field are very high: all over 600 horsepower (depending on the engine used).

It is easy to find out how much the various models cost by consulting the official site or the price lists on the net, but how much doa>es it cost to maintain one of these cars?


Among the costs for maintaining a car, there is always the car tax, or more correctly, the car tax. It is a tax payable by all car owners. The payment is due annually, but the amount and calculation are strictly linked to the power and year of production of the vehicle. This tax is managed by the regions and autonomous provinces of Bolzano and Trento, excluding Sardinia and Friuli Venezia Giulia, where instead it is the responsibility of the Revenue Agency. The amount for hybrid cars is calculated differently from that of pure endothermic cars.

In the case of a Ferrari, we are talking about high-powered supercars, and we must take into account the existence of the supermark, i.e. the additional tax that is applied to all cars that exceed 185 kW of power. The supermark takes into account the power, but also the year of construction of the vehicle, as explained in our in-depth analysis.

What is the sum to be covered each year? Taking the Roma and Purosangue models as “average” Ferraris, we discover that in Lombardy:

Ferrari Roma (456 kW): 1,636 euro stamp duty + 5,420 euro stamp duty

Ferrari Purosangue (533 kW): 1,934 euro stamp duty + 6,960 euro stamp duty

Values ​​which, as one can imagine, increase almost unbelievable on the most important models:

Ferrari 812 GTS (588 kW): 2,147 euro stamp duty + 8,060 euro stamp duty

Ferrari SF90 Stradale (573 kW, only endothermic): 2,089 euro stamp duty + 7,760 euro super vignette


The Ferrari Roma, like other super sports cars, is fitted with oversized tyres, which are absolutely necessary to manage the engine's power when the accelerator pedal is pressed. Perhaps not everyone knows that, very common in other extremely powerful cars, it mounts different sizes between the front and rear axles. On the front, for a pair of 245/35R20 tires you need an average of 600 euros, to which you add the cost of the 285/35R20 rear pair, at a rather similar price. In total, therefore, for a set of Pirelli P Zero PZ4 summer tires the cost would be around 1200 euros (to which we then add tire disposal and labour).

If we instead took into consideration more extreme models such as the aforementioned Ferrari 812 GTS and Ferrari SF90 Stradale, costs would rise; for example, more than 2,200 euros are needed for an original equipment train of the Ferrari 812 GTS (Pirelli P Zero Corsa). Naturally, the replacement depends on the type of use and the number of kilometers traveled per year, net of the possibility of "turning" (possibly, if the size is the same) the tires to achieve balanced and progressive use.


At present it is not very simple to define the running cost of any car, even battery-powered, due to ever-increasing values. If on the one hand, with a supercar like a Ferrari, it is very easy to achieve almost "unthinkable" record consumption, on the other, with forward-looking use and without sudden accelerations, it is possible to obtain respectable consumption.

If we take the Roma model for example, the manufacturer declares an average consumption of 11.2 liters per 100 km. Probably for a mixed and prudent use, it could also consume less. But it is equally probable that if one wanted to make greater use of horses, consumption would increase dramatically. Since we have examined a car that could also be used on a daily basis, if we assume an annual mileage of 10,000 km, the fuel consumption for 12 months could lead to an average annual cost of 1,700 euros. The tank capacity is 80 litres, so a full tank, at the current price of fuel, would cost around 150 euros.


There are so many variables in this case, and it is not easy to make a rough estimate that could be significant for many users, also due to the numerous ancillary activations available, the municipality to which they belong and the age of the driver, etc. We can make an average, based on the results described, and therefore state that a basic RCA policy for a Ferrari Roma has an annual premium of around 3,000 euros. If then services such as Kasko, vandalism and atmospheric events were added, the costs would rise, easily exceeding the aforementioned threshold.

Values ​​which, as anticipated, could tremendously increase or, why not, decrease depending on the clauses involved.


Costs of maintenance of a highly engineered product cannot be cheap. The cost of the highly skilled workforce of Ferrari mechanics must be taken into account. As well as spare parts and consumables of the highest quality. But for Ferrari, as well as for other luxury brands, there are all-inclusive ordinary maintenance plans for the first three years. There is an option to extend up to the seventh year, or up to a maximum of 120,000km. The program includes: labour, original spare parts, lubricants, engine oil, brake fluid, and is linked to the car, so in case of sale, these benefits pass to the new owner. The aim is clearly to guarantee the car maximum efficiency and to give guarantees in the event of sale, so that the car depreciates as little as possible.


Also not to be forgotten the cost of the revision, fixed and controlled for everyone. To be carried out on a regular basis starting from the fourth year of registration, and then every two years, as indicated on your vehicle registration certificate; the cost of the revision is 66.88 euros.
