USA 488 Order Estimated Wait Time?

Has anybody recently made a deposit for a 488 and been given a wait time for delivery? I have been told by 2 dealers 12 months and 12-18 months before final delivery.

Probably about right if you get an allocation. Nice to have two allocations from two dealers :-)

Is that for the GTB? (The Spider is still being stated as 20 - 24 months AFAIK.)

Less than a year if dealer is willing to move things around. Say November.

Unless you want to spec it yourself, why not buy a used one? Plenty of them out there and I've already seen gtb's going for below msrp and spiders for msrp + 20-30k over.

Tons of used 488 out there. Check the McLaren Lambo dealer sites too.
Sometimes they don't post on Carguru.

There are several out there under--I saw one $20k under.

HOWEVER, they are highly optioned cars $355 stickers.

If you do some work you'll find them, here is an example... https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/d...3967/overview/

What cars are listed for is not what they will sell for in most cases--so have to call and be ready to make offer and buy.

There was a black one for sale in the classified section the other day. Start calling dealers and look around, you"ll find one for msrp or under.

Most listed over msrp are asking price. You can just bargain with them below msrp. With some new models will be shown in the geneva next week, I think they will give you right away.

Used 488

Just purchased a used 16 488 with 180 miles for 3K under MSRP. Didn't find too many dealers accepting under MSRP except for cars with some miles one them. Good Luck!

Have they given a reason for no allocation? Is this your first one?

Don't do it

UK - 4 months for a new GTB, just supply chain at Ferrari essentially. Caution - Mac 720 mind blowing, 488 Speciale may not even rival, so tread carefully on depreciation.
