Chris Harris Sells His Ferrari


The cost of owning a contemporary Ferrari has proven too much even for an automotive journalist as successful as Chris Harris.

Chris Harris has a troubled history with Ferrari. Having had some less-than-favorable things to say about the company, he fell on Maranello's black list. So he doesn’t get cars lent to him from the factory any more, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like 'em. In fact, last summer, the British auto scribe known as Monkey sold his Porsche and bought himself a used 599 GTB Fiorano. Monkey figured it was cheap to buy (at least relative to the cost of a new one), so it would be cheap to run, too. Boy was he wrong.

Over the course of ten months, he covered around 3,000 miles in his Ferrari 599, spending over $15,000 on storage, insurance, gas and tires. For a writer (even one as successful as Harris), that’s no pocket change. So he’s sold it, and now he’s contemplating what to get next.
