    Will the car be at the dealer at any time? I'm not an FCA member and have no Ferrari, but I'd love to see the car.

    I don't care about any drama (or non drama) between any clubs. I am going to the event and look forward to seeing the F12 and new Quattroporte! Great venue too, but I am biased because I got married there.

    Looking forward to it!

    Was this on Craigslist? Gee guess I missed it. Went to the unvailing of the 458, but do not remember needing to register. I think I just called Scottsdale Ferrari and asked if I could attend. Maybe I will need to do that again?

    I received an invitation from the FCA as well as an email invitation from Scottsdale Ferrari. I think that they might be asking for registration because the event is not at the dealership and they have to give the invite list to the gate house at the club so they know who is allowed in.

    The last FCA email I got regarding the event said that registration has been closed because they reached their set capacity of 80 guests.

    I was just kidding. Saw the car in December at Ferrari of Newport Beach. Great looking car and well worth going here in Scottsdale (even if you must go through the FCA registration). If you have not seen the car already go.

    Don't drink and it is way toooo far to drive for Costco meatballs. Enjoy and take your pictures early, just in case the drink happens to be worth the drive.........:)

    I hope they get them from Ikea, since Ikea was caught up in the horse meat scandal and I'm quite certain that Cavallino meat is good for meatballs.

    What is the implied dress code for tomorrow night's event? Silverleaf CC is pretty upscale

    The website says "no jeans" although I've been told that only applies to the dining room. I rarely go ANYwhere in something other than jeans. I'm guessing khakis are fine, or jeans and a blazer if you want to push the envelope.

    This will not be the one time a year when I wear a tie, that's for sure.

    I asked the dealer and they said "casual". I already packed for my flight and all I brought was jeans...so, that's what I'll be in...

    Jeans are fine. My guess, from when they did the Bentley Continental launch is that the car will be on the Event Lawn.

    I wear jeans up to Silverleaf quite often and they only seem to exclude them when you are eating in the main dining room. People have even worn nice jeans to the holiday parties.

    As long as you aren't wearing ripped up acid/stone washed jeans you should be okay.

    I'll be in jeans and a nice shirt. Might bring a sports coat, but it is going to be near 80 tomorrow so that probably means the jacket won't be coming out.

    I got a quick glimps of the F12 when I was at the dealer yesterday for a roof malfunction. I was surprised how many similarities to the FF that I noticed.

    Looking forward to checking it out in more detail.

    Was a nice event, and the car is stunning in person...can't wait to hear one in person...


    Ron, was that your 612 at capital grill afterwards? We stopped in for some drinks and I saw a blue 612 in the valet park.

    With the lighting, they won't be great...of course there lots of great pics of the F12 on fchat and the web. Very impressive piece of engineering!

    I took a few photos. They didn't turn out great with the lighting, but at least they came out. I'll post them soon.

    It was a really fun event. It was cool to be able to get in all of the cars including the amazing F12 which has one of the best engine bays ever. Old school looking valve covers and carbon fiber everywhere.

    The guys at Scottsdale Ferrari did a fantastic job at putting on this event. My wife and I had a great time.

    Top notch presentation of the F12 by Gary Simon, a true gentleman, and Ferrari historian.

    Thank You!

    Here are a few photos of the event. I took a great video of when they started it and rev'd it up, but can't seem to load it here. The car sounded great, and pictures really don't do it justice. It's a beautiful shape and rather understated. I do look rather natural sitting in it, if I do say so myself! ;-)

    It was a great event. Many, many thanks to FCA and Scottsdale Ferrari. This was as classy as it gets.
