UPDATE: The Superleggera has been taken off the market.
Did you miss your chance to get a Ducati 1199 Superleggera? Were you not one of the chosen few Ducatisti who were whisked away to Bologna, wined and dined on carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium? Did you just not have $65,000 last year to plunk down on Bologna’s ultimate superbike?
Have no fear, despite the Superleggera basically selling out before it was even publicly debuted, there is hope for collectors and enthusiasts to own this magnificient machine…but it’s going to cost you.
Available on eBay is a 0 miles, straight-from-the-crate brand new, corse-painted Superleggera (#123 of 500). The catch? It’s being offered for a cool $85,000 — $20k over MSRP.
The news is surely welcomed by Superleggera owners, who can see the value of their prized two-wheeled posession already commanding a 30% value increase in just a few months’ time– that’s a pretty good rate of return, for any investment.
Time will tell of course whether this Ducati 1199 Superleggera actually goes for the asking price here, but right now it’s pegging the collector’s market on “the power of lightness”.
