    Apparently 430's in the US are almost impossible to find.

    My dealer has only received one in the past two months and there are only two for sale on Ebay. Spiders are even harder to get.

    With the looming deadline of Sept 06 for compliance with DOT, one would think Ferrari would fill the US orders as fast as they can.

    I wonder what is going on?

    Re: Apparently 430's in the US are almost impossible to find

    Maybe due to the Dollar-Euro exchange that Ferrari has not hedged they are trying to sell most them in RoW for a better profit margin?

    Good point. 1 Dollar used to be worth 1.2 Euros, but now the reverse is true. 1.2 Dollars for 1 Euro. That's a 44% difference in three years.

    There are 5 for sale in this weeks Autoweek...but I'm sure at a large premium.

    It's Ferrari marketing working at it's best. Also, demand has simply outweighed supply by a few more notches lately for whatever reason.

    short supply - sell !

    nick, if they are in that short of supply you ought to sell and take your profits !
    maybe the next one wont have the alignment and stain problems!

    how much was the bet on the cgt resale again?

    Re: short supply - sell !

    it is the Ferrari policy to build one less than the market demands isn't it?

    Except in this case they're building a few hundred less than the market demands

    Re: short supply - sell !

    Heard from dealer that they had no capacity to build the road version 430. Because they need to build enough 430 challenge to replace the current 360 challenge. Most of the effort was put to the challenge production. The factory will be back to normal 430 production by late March or early April.

    Re: short supply - sell !

    That is exactly what I heard, that the 430 challenge has cannibalized 430 production capacity in January/ February. Also heard that the line resumed normal operations at beginning of March.

    Sounds right. They were also building cars for the F Driving Experience in Montreal.

    Re: short supply - sell !

    I've been in Vegas last week and have seen approx. 10 430s. Allone at the Ferrari Dealer at the Wynn Hotel they had 3. So in fact, I've seen more 430 than 360!

    Re: short supply - sell !

    There are plenty of 430's all you need is to pay over sticker and you can have as many as you like .

    You're correct, however, there are still some difficulties. For example, I'm looking for the following F430 to be purchased this summer:

    Coupe
    6-speed
    Double Nero
    Yellow Brake calipers
    Yellow Stitching
    Scuderia Shields

    I'm willing to pay a premium for the car, yet I can't find one that matches my wanted specs.

    Re: short supply - sell !

    Plenty second hand ones available in Japan! Not particularly cheap but plentiful! Which colour would you like?

    Re: short supply - sell !

    Check Autoweek and Dupont Registry. Between the two, it almost seems like all the F430s in the country are for sale.
