Hi guys, new Alfa owner here just dipped my toes into modern alfa ownership with a Giulietta. I've got her on a 2 year PCP and may consider using her as a part exchange for either a 4c or Guilia Quad in the near future.
I'm not sure if this has already been asked on here, but which do you think is the wiser buy out of the 2 cars in terms of future values relative to cost of purchasing?
I know they're not like for like but seeing as the 8c has effectively doubled in price, I can't help but feel the same will happen to the 4c when they eventually stop production of them. But then again, how many RHD Giulia Quads will there be on the roads?
The only basis of comparison we have for the Quad is the values of 156 GTA as it's the closest precedent to the Quad (not counting the Holden v6 engined 159 as it has to be a Busso to be considered a real performance Alfa saloon in my mind)!
Thats an interesting question, as I have just sold an Alfa 156 GTA (2004), for over £8000, which I bought in January 2015, for less than £4000; however I easily spent more than the difference on upgrades and replacement parts...
I don't think you can compare either of the cars, to an 8C, as they were only made in limited numbers and Alfa Romeo received more orders for the 8C, than they produced, so essentially the 8C was looking like an appreciating asset from the outset.
Most mass produced Alfa Romeos depreciate quite hard from new, so I would keep an eye on the values of both cars you mention, which by the way are the two Alfa's that I would love to own.
I'm sure you are aware that both the cars are totally different though; for me the 4C is essentially a toy, with an F1 style carbon tub and I would only consider owning that car, if I could afford to run another more rounded car, by its side, for example a Giulietta.
The Giulia QV; I think is akin to a for door Ferrari, which is very practical.
You have time to see how values pan out and it might be worth speaking to an Alfa dealer, to see what value they would give you on each car after three years, its a nice problem to have...
