    How did you get the car by making a quick trip to the dealer?

    By negotiating a sale price and exchanging funds. Dealers are storing these cars for sale above MSRP, as mentioned by others here as well.

    Grigio Silver is correct. They let another customer “upgrade” to another model so it was available.

    There was never a ban, that's just hearsay. Plenty of people paying above MSRP for "used" Ferraris, with nothing but delivery miles, or buying Lussos, another way for a dealer to make the profit. With a Lusso dealer gets twice the money, once from the sale of the car, and again as a performance bonus from selling 2 new cars instead of 1.

    You come up with a way, dealers will come up with ways around it.

    Remember, this is a 2020 car, so it was ordered on or after May 31st of 2019. With it likely being at the dealer for 1-2 weeks before being sold, do you really think an actual customer walks away from a Pista only 2.5 months after placing the order?

    Back to the OP, congrats on the car, you'll love it and best of all it's not red! Just be careful on what you post on FChat as now your dealer knows who you are, wouldn't want that to jeopardize your experience. Take plenty of photos of your PPF and inspect it as small bubbles may form over time from areas that weren't applied perfectly, usually around sharp corners/ends.

    In my case the owner took delivery and barely drove the car 5 miles. He took the allocation rather than risking the next car.

    This may sound like a foolish question, but do you think there's any allocations available left for the Pista (assuming that the dealer is willing to give you one if he has an allocation)?

    Recently had a chance to drive a Pista and it pleasantly surprised me...might have bitten me with the bug! Too bad it wasn't earlier.

    If you are in the US the answer is No. There is not a single allocation available from any dealer. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get one for over MSRP. Plenty of them coming out of the 6 month no sale period and other people are willing to sell privately. I know this as I just went thru the process and eventually found one to buy.

    Only if you're willing to pay above MSRP at this point.

    well there was a GT one listed recently for 40 over with a RL special if contacted FWIW, so the premiums are not as high for some as I would have thought. Saw some for 150 over initially.

    At Ferrari Silicon Valley and Ferrari South Bay I saw quite a few Pistas being prepped/sold/on the showroom recently, so there should be more inventory seeping through if/when owners decide to sell for whatever reason

    Total MSRP is $487,622. I know, because I too was offered the car. Although from the sounds of it, unlike OP, my purchase would have required different...contingencies. Presumably OP’s purchase history is different than, and superior to, mine. Regardless, congrats to OP. Beautiful car for sure.

    Clearly not since you passed on the car first. From you passing on the deal, dealer may have downwardly revised their "contingency" moving forward.

    There is no loyalty concept nowadays in both sides, particularly the dealers. The dealer is in the dirt with this transaction. They are the one who should worry, but having said that, you think Ferrari really does not know what the dealers are doing?

    It's all about the balance...

    Op, congrats! Post whatever you want to your hearts content. Don't worry about the dealers. Many dealers. Many brands. Many customers.
