    Re: Ferrari 488 PISTA

    RC:

    I see 720 hp, not 730...so same as 720S. Mistake.

    290k EUR in France? So probably around 285k in Germany? Without options? Ouch.

    Still...could be an interesting alternative to the GT2 RS.

    knowing Ferrari legendary reliability....Smiley I would just stop the alternative to look.Smiley

    it cost about the same money as a gt2rs and the latter is just....a 911

    probably cost 50% or more in where I live, but doesn't matter, I can't get either one anyway

    Tim, just send a cheque,SmileySmiley

    not going to happen I'm afraid.

    just learned that our government has significantly increased sales taxes on cars purchase starting April 1.  Over $125000 car needs to pay 20% sales tax, and car over $150000 needs to pay 25% tax.Smiley

    Looks like Whoopsy will pay a lot more taxes this year...

     

    Nah, since I am doing euro delivery for the Turbo S, I should be able to sneak that one in before April 1st. For the GT2RS, I might have to do an alternate route...........................

    Accountants comes to the rescue!

    5% tax more and looking for alternate route...Smiley that is a bit funny Smiley

    Ferrari quality has improved a lot over the past couple of years...
     

    Regarding 5% more tax: This is serious money on a 300k car.

    So what? 15k are a lot of dough, why should he throw it away? Smiley He could get himself a nice watch or a trip to one of his favorite events for this kind of money, I understand him very well.

    15k is a lot for us, RC, not for deep pocket... I completely understand your position but trying to save 15k when you have more than enough is funny.

    It's actually 10% more from existing tax. Right now it is 15% and after April 1st it will be 25%. 

    On a 400k GT2RS, that's an extra 40k. I would rather spent that 40k elsewhere than giving up to the government to waste it. Hell I don't mind donating the full 25% tax to charity instead of handing it to the government. Just a matter of principle. 

    Simply put, government never knew how to use money effectively, they have no accountability. Left side of the isle or right side, doesn't matter.

    the original point of tax is to redistribute to the ones in need. That is not the case as the super wealthy can do several tricks to avoid almost 0 giving. Smiley

    the middle class is screwed up, they can't escape. government is screwed up, they don't get enough they have to raise tax and borrow more and spend the not enough money incorrectly.Smiley

    I get the principle of ''I prefer charity because government sucks'', all super wealthy do that (not the charity part though) and the system is getting worst.Smiley

    this is my country situation at the moment, and pretty much Europe.

    Yep, the Pista is currently my favorite. If the traction control setup is as good as on the 720S, it would probably be the better choice as well (looks much better than the 720 in my opinion).

    Re: Ferrari 488 PISTA

    The video was of a prototype. Typically, Ferrari engineers work on the sound when its close to production. I'll probably sound better with the land vehicle.

    The sound is of course not comparable to the 458 for example but it is in my opinion the best sounding biturbo charged V8 car on the market and it definitely sounds better than your RAV4. Smiley Smiley
