You're looking at a 2012 Ferrari California. It's a fairly standard 2012 Ferrari California, with all the regular 2012 Ferrari California bits and a nice 2012 Ferrari California color combination of white over red, which looks surprisingly desirable. Oh, and one more thing: It has 73,000 miles.

This may not seem like a lot to you, but most Ferrari models -- even the "daily drivable" California -- just don't get driven all that much. They're second or third cars, to be taken out only on special occasions. For proof, the average mileage of a 2012 California currently listed for sale on Autotrader is somewhere around 12,000. There are cars with 1,000 miles. There are cars with 14,000 miles. And then there's this thing, with 73,000 miles.

So how does a Ferrari attain 73,000 miles in 5 years? According to the Carfax report, it was originally titled as a "corporate vehicle," which could suggest it was a rental car -- especially as it was owned in Miami Beach, which is where many exotic-car rental outfits are located. It appears the car was well-maintained at Ferrari of West Palm Beach, and it has one accident on the Carfax report -- a relatively minor one in June 2015.

Right now, this California is offered for $96,000, which is far less than the average asking price of a 2012 California on Autotrader, which is around $131,000. It's available at The Taverna Collection, an exotic-car dealer near Fort Lauderdale, and it's certainly an outlier in the Ferrari world.
