Hi all,

Just about to pull the trigger on a Granturismo in Dubai. its a 2013 with 53000 k's on the clock. I'd like to know if thats a lot milage for these cars (it is considered high milage in the Ferrari and Lambo world)

Also,will I have any trouble selling the car in 6 months to a year? Are they difficult to shift or is there quite a following in Dubai and one would be able find a buyer easily?

What do I need to look out for before I fork out the cash? What desirable extras should I look for?

Thanks in advance,looking forward to your advice.

Hi GT-DXB,

Yes, I would consider 53000 km on a 2013 model quite a lot. It indicates owner used it as a daily driver. Not a bad thing in any way. But have a pre-purchase inspection done first. Can be done at Al Tayer or Alex Renner Motors.. Would be well spent dirhams.

Now to your second question about selling after 6-12 months. They do sell, but maybe not as fast as you would expect.... Tire kickers and time wasters are common in Dubai...trying their luck with low ball offers. To find a genuine buyer who appreciates the small things is not easy... I did spend 7 months selling my QP...can now write a book about that experience.

Lastly, go to the GT section of this forum and you will find ample posts on the do's and dont's when buying.

Good luck, the chase is Half of the fun..

I have been researching them quite a bit lately. Its hard to get a lot of information on ownership experience and maintainence costs. There are a fair amount of them on Dubai roads which indicates people like them, they are reasonably well built, and some of the ones on Dubizzle indicate they can do a lot of mileage. Since this is not a mass market car, it would definitely take time to find a buyer so you should have holding power. Ideally, you should look for a car with lower mileage. Over 50,000 means half the life is done, considering most cars need substantial ongoing maintainence after 100k especially here due to heat. Totally agree with Spectrum, get is checked by ARM or TM-main dealer. Then if you still want to proceed, you can buy at the right price factoring in upcoming repairs/maintainence. My view is most sellers fall into two type of categories, 1) can afford to hold it and wont drop price much, 2) just want to get their money out hence may drop price to close deal. I myself am eying them. The dealer is selling new 485k AED, with ramadan promotion price @ 460k (on in stock inventory). Ideally, a one year old car with 2 years of maintainence and warranty is a good deal. You get atleast 100k off dealer list price, plus two years of peaceful motoring. I myself hate visiting dealers and service centers, so spending the extra dough upfront might be worth it if the pocket allows. Goodluck <<based on what your said you might be looking at the blue beauty on dubizzle.

Welcome to the forum... it is a bit on the higher mileage side but if the price reflects it, may not be a bad deal. As mentioned, get the PPI to be sure that it's in good shape. The GT is a great car, sure you will love it!

Best Regards,

Just got myself a 2011 GranTurismo S MC Sport Line few days back. It has 57000km on the clock. I had a few chat with a friend works in ARM, I used to do all my Porsches' services there. It's quite normal to put around 10000km a year, he had customers with 100k+ with their maserati. Since you are looking for a 13', I would say it's still ok, reaching high mileage in UAE is quite easy.
