    Earlier in the year, during my last visit to LV, I chatted with Jeff Adelman about the construction of their new showroom for Ferrari. He said the goal was late May (I assume this year), so I stopped by this past weekend to see how close they are. Not.

    Also, seems like a very limited space if it is to house both Ferrari and Maserati - guess they will continue to occupy space in the current buildings.

    Much closer than the last time I stopped by. Guess I should make the trek across town and see it. Can't wait for it to be finished. I sure did like Penske though. I loved going to see them at the Wynn.

    Nothing could beat that and hanging out in "the batcave". :)

    I drove by the Wynn 2 weeks ago and it looks like they are pretty close to opening the shopping mall they created in the old Ferrari space moving out to right against the strip.

    It was great while it lasted!

    I went to the Ferrari dealership Saturday and actually had someone come talk to me and walk me through their inventory! I was cracking up as he is a new guy so I attribute it to that. It looks like it will be a nice show room although on the small side. Didn't see any indication of McLaren across the street yet.

    You may already know this.....Just wanted to post an update. I called Park Place Infinity and they have been sold to another dealer so the Mclaren expansion to this dealership is on hold. They said it's going to be up to the new owners if they pick up Mclaren. So, guess it won't be happening for awhile if it happens.


    Ferrari showroom should be a couple weeks they told me today.

    I'm assuming they will throw a party for locals. I've heard nothing so far.

    So, still no McLaren in LV? Wow that's strange as they sent me an email about acquiring Mac just about 2 months ago.

    I don't see it happening with this latest group we have been talking about, unless someone new enters the picture.

    Few people are going to buy a $300K sports car if it has to be shipped all the way to Newport Beach to fix a check engine light.

    Yep.....no one here has diagnostic equipment for McLaren either even if the car was out of warranty and you wanted to take it somewhere else.

    I know some people that send there or to Scottsdale but total deal killer in my book for any year/make/model Mclaren in my book.

    It's a shame.

    I stopped by today too. The design/order suite and the delivery room are neat ideas.

    When I bought my Fiat Abarth, the dealer also had a nice delivery room. It had big glass sliding doors so you could drive straight out when you picked it up, and wall to sign/scribble out a short message. I have pics somewhere. I always thought it was a neat idea.

    supposedly they won't sell it at the moment.

    I want to buy the 488 GTO and they told me I have to buy a couple Ferrari's first. Kind of bummed that I have to lose a hundred grand just to get the car I want.

    If you can put up with importing a right hand drive, let me know and I believe I can get you on the list at my dealership through me. I can't buy one for myself given my health, it's pointless until I get better, but I would be able to get on the list with my history of cars

    Man, that's super nice of you! I really really appreciate it. I'm really sorry to hear about your health condition. I have to have left hand drive. Is there anyway you could transfer it to the US? I would throw you a little cash too.

    I don't think dealers have a reciprocal arrangement between each other, they are pretty competitive here let alone with international dealers, so I doubt they will. However, I will ask my guys today, maybe make up a story that I've secured a move to the US (they know my long term plan is to retire there) and see what they can do if I want to have that car, but delivered to my retirement home. It's a shot

    Now that I am back in town I will have to stop by again and take a look. I haven't been in the new show room as of yet.

    Looks like they CHEAPED OUT.
    Looks like the same building they moved in to right after the
    purchase from Wynn.

    Really, I haven't been in there yet but they were in a garage that looked like it used to be a part of the service department.

    I went by there over the weekend. Ran into another Lotus Evora while I was there. I didn't think the building was bad. I was only slightly offended when I went in and first thing they told me no photos or videos in the show room. Guess I don't look like someone who can buy a Ferrari. I did have grand kids with me as I knew the boys would love to see Ferraris up close. Their favorite though was the Lambo Gallardo outside, go figure.
