Over the last few years, a new trend has started where certain highly demanded exotic cars actually go up in value after they're released, rather than down. Although this used to happen for only the most intensely sought-after exotics -- the Ferrari Enzo, for instance -- it now occurs surprisingly often, with certain exotic cars proving to be surprisingly strong investments. Here are five examples of recent exotic cars, currently for sale on Autotrader, that have increased in value compared to their original MSRP.

2017 Ferrari 488 Spider

2017 Ferrari 488 Spider - $429,900

The 488 Spider isn't an ultra-limited-production car like the rest of the vehicles on this list -- but it has still shot up in value, like all V8-powered, mid-engine Ferrari models right after they come out. That's solely due to demand: Ferrari may not limit 488 Spider models to a certain number (like the 599 GTO or McLaren P1), but the brand keeps supply low, which leads to waiting lists. The inevitable result is that some people buy "used" models right away, at a premium, rather than waiting for their spot to come up on the waiting list. This 488 Spider has just 570 miles, and it's offered by Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale for $429,900 -- a big jump over the base price of $272,000.

2011 Ferrari 599 GTO

2011 Ferrari 599 GTO - $825,900

Ferrari says that it built just 599 units of the 599 GTO, which was the ultra-high-performance version of the V12-powered 599 GTB. Although Ferrari is usually a little conservative in estimating the number of units they built, this is still an ultra-rare modern Ferrari -- with a massive price tag, to boot. These were around $500,000 when they came out back in 2011, but this one is currently being offered with just 248 miles by Marshall Goldman Motors near Cleveland for $825,900 -- a massive figure, but one that's not out of line with the current market prices for 599 GTOs.

  2014 McLaren P1

2014 McLaren P1 - $2,399,900

The McLaren P1 was limited to just 375 units, and this is one of the few. Although prices were initially around $1.1 million (the description says this car had an MSRP of $1,155,000), this P1 is now on the market for just under $2.4 million -- a figure that's right in line with what similar P1 models are selling for. It's offered by McLaren Philadelphia with just 981 miles, suggesting the original owner (wisely) purchased this car as an investment.

  2016 Porsche 911R

2016 Porsche 911R - $479,000

The Porsche 911R might be the best example of a modern exotic car shooting up in value, if only because of just how much it shot up: While the original MSRP was around $165,000, 911R models were reportedly selling for north of $600,000 during the height of the "911R" craze -- an increase of nearly fourfold. Things have calmed down a bit since then, however, and this 911R is listed for "only" $479,000 -- a figure that's still a massive increase over the original price. This one is offered by Momentum Porsche in Houston, apparently as a new vehicle with just delivery mileage.

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder

2015 Porsche 918 Spyder - $1,399,918

Although the Porsche 918 Spyder hasn't increased in value like its rival supercars, the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, it has certainly gone up. This 918 is an excellent example: Even though it's covered more than 10,000 miles -- extremely high mileage for a 918 Spyder -- it's still listed for just under $1.4 million, which is much higher than the original base price of around $860,000. Even with options, few 918 Spyder models topped $1.1 million, so this has gained serious value in two years -- even though it's been driven quite a bit.
