    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

     It is rumored that Ferrari wanted agreements with early 458 owners to hold the car for one year or sell it back to Ferrari. This was being done to avoid the speculators.

    Iain, those were the days when the economy was good and ostentatiousness was in.

    I guess 'uniquely bad' is still 'unique'?

     Dimitri, did they explain to you how it will work? How do they decide the value of the car assuming you have an outside buyer willing to pay over MSRP which I am sure Ferrari is not. Or in the alternative, no outside buyer but you want to sell the car within the year. Who decides what it is worth?Smiley

    To be serious, it's unique and damn ugly, but if you remove the stickers, you'll have a nice white 458. Smiley

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

    Nick - I had to sign a similar agreement when I took delivery of my F430 spider.  For the first 12 months the dealer has first right of refusal to buy the car back at MSRP.  

    Ferrari also limits each customer to one car from each model per 12 months for factory orders (e.g. I can order a 458 and 599 in 12 months, but I can't order two 458s).  This is particularly to prevent dealer owners (or their close friends) from going through a ton of highly desirable cars in a short period of time.  By 2002 one of the owners of my dealer had been through 6 360s.

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

    Thanks. My present plan is to buy the 458 coupe (still not sold on this car) and turn it in for the 458 Spider. That should not run a foul of their one year rule.

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

    That's my plan as well :)  I may keep the F430 Spider though, I'd miss not having a 6-speed manual Ferrari :)

    At both cars the front license plate looks horrible.

    Hi ISUK,

    How do you end up with photos taken in Belgium?

    That 458 is a dealer's car (green licence plates) for instance. Last time, you had posted photos of a yellow one sitting in the showroom at the dealer in Waterloo, Belgium.

    And it would be so easy to master, just take the F-horse away and put the plate in between the air-intake.

     +1, its not like it needs that horse there for people to know its a ferrari, and i assume whatever effect it may have on the air intake or with aerodynamics wont be so significant.


    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

     This whole number plate thing makes me wonder, Ferrari must have thought of it when putting the final 458 design into production. What is their official recommendation about the plate ?


    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

    It's my understanding (via my dealer) that Ferrari will supply a number plate holder like the one used on the California which is a plastic frame that attaches to the underside of the section of the bumper just above the black grille. Here is a pic of a Cali's plate holder without a number plate obscuring it. Apologies it's not a large pic but it's the best I could find.

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

     That looks awful.

    Re: Rennteam's tribute to the Ferrari 458...lots of photos, videos, etc.

    It is my understanding that Ferrari never intented for its aerodynamically advanced and aesthetically pleasing cars to hold front license plates.

     i wont put a plate, and im willing to pay the fines, i will keep it in the car with double tape and put it wheenever the police stop me. no way to ruin the design of the front.
