My Garage
I was told the allotment they have was sold out before they opened the doors - anyone confirm?

Honestly I didn't think there would be a market considering the taxes, but it's nice to see some progress.

Dealership looks beautiful!

Mazal Tov,



When I was in Israel, I could not import a Testarossa or similar F car. The reason being was two-fold - no licensed dealer and the car was not yet 30 years old. If they had a dealer, I would have been permitted, to import the car. They do have a licensed P dealer, in Ramat Hasharon.

You can also import a restricted collector car, if it is 30 years old. With any 30 year old collector car, you do not have to have a licensed dealer in the country.

_______


Guess what ?

AFAIK, the importation tax, should be at least 127% . Yes, the car, is significantly cheaper than the tax. Perhaps it is even more ?

Motorcycles are stupid expensive. How about around $30,000, for a 1000 sport motorcycle !

Sad to see I missed the opening, since I was in TA for a few weeks in March. Where is the dealership? I typically stay near Shenkin when I visit. Hopefully I'll be back next year!

Mazel Tov!

I can now make "Alliah." I wonder what the cost of a 458 is out the door. Do I even dare ask?

At least twice what you'd pay here in the States. Plus gas is about $8 a gallon these days.

Glad to hear you'll be making aliyah. Was it a rigorous process? Every time I mention it to my friends in TA they act like I'm nuts. They always ask why I'd want to live in Israel.

The dealership is in Tel Aviv.
Yes the 308 looks like a toy next to the 458 :-).
The cost of the 458 is more than $500K inc. taxes.
Many cars were sold before the opening...Maybe beginners luck :-).
And about living in Israel... The best place for me to live in...

Yes, but what's the address? I know Tel Aviv well and have spent much time there. I would love to see the Ferrari dealership next time I visit.

I love Israel. I always miss it so much when I return to the US. Hopefully I will be able to expand my business to include development and manufacturing in Tel Aviv.

Israel has a highly skilled manufacturing base and a competitively priced employee workforce (hi-tech).

In addition, they have quite a few small hi-tech cottage industries, that can handle small orders.

Yes, I know. Not to mention some of the most creative people I've ever met. My company handles delta-sigma based data acquisition and we're looking to port our technology over to medical instrumentation. Israel seems like the perfect place for this.

prices

Just wondering how much a Ferrari is in Israel. Let's take a 458 with a window sticker of $275,000 USD. Also I heard the roads around Tel Aviv aren't so great. Is there any part of town to "let it out?"
