This is one of the most breath-taking cars on the planet, no doubt. I think it will depreciate slower than most. However in the end its still a car and a depreciating asset. There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now with respect to the various economies, etc. That may play a major roll in the value of the car (and everything else) going forward. I've been in the market for an r8 for a while now, however as a buyer I'm waiting to see what happens next year with our economy before I decide to make any major purchases other than my investments.
