The recent market price of exotics are causing the cars to leave the grasp of many of us who dreamed of them, pushing them into the hands of those who have a lot of money to throw around; concurrently, the entry level exotics are also approaching the higher inventory prices. I have recently been watching Jalpas, Urracos, 308s, and 348s increasing in cost. To be more specific, I recently watched a Jalpa sell for over $110,000, which you could have easily bought a Diablo for years ago when the market was tame. Years prior, the Jalpa was selling in the $40-50k range.
