The Ferrari uses some fuel and if you have to ask how much it costs to run, you probably can’t afford it.
On a serious note, Ferrari claims 24.8mpg on the combined cycle and its 3.9-litre V8 produces 260g/km of CO2. Every new Ferrari also comes with a seven-year general maintenance programme and a standard three-year warranty.

In reality, driven in a way to enjoy its performance, a 488 GTB will return low to mid teens mpg, single figures on track. On the run back from the north-east of Scotland on evo Car of the Year we averaged 22mpg, which isn’t to be sniffed at considering an Aventador SV returned exactly half that.
Ferrari's factory-backed, comprehensive standard warranty covers four years, and extensions up to 12 years are also available. A Ferrari Genuine Maintenance programme is also offered on all new models, covering all scheduled maintenance for the first seven years, with unlimited mileage and no restriction on annual servicing - so if you cover unusually high mileage, the package will allow you to get the car serviced more than once a year.
