    Awesome. Can you post a copy of the acknowledgement (private info obscured of course) so I can inquire with my dealer why he refuses to do that?

    I just hope they bring back the Barchetta name. Seems like they stepped away from the Aperta name again. But they kinda wore it a bit thin with the 599, 458 and LaFA :D
    To me, Spider is just more fitting for something lighter, smaller and mid engined :)

    I am chatting with our dealer next week but I seriously doubt we can put one down yet...I think there is a game played at some other dealers and fortunately for us, FSV doesn’t play it.

    Thanks for weighing in. Yes concur. Theses guys may "hold your money for you" ;) but they aren't working with the factory to secure a build for a car that hasn't been announced yet and by "most reliable" rumors appears 2-3 months from launch.

    What FSV is willing to share is they know something is coming; any details beyond that is: wait for launch. Pls let us know if you learn anything different.

    The agreement is with the dealer only. Some dealers do this and some do not. Because the criteria for purchasing hasn't been released by Ferrari, the dealer is sticking his neck out in the hopes the customer will receive a car. If the customer is a Top Customer then it should not be a problem. But I know for a fact that the dealer has not received allocations. Officially the car does not exist yet and there is no way to enter in an order into the MODIS system period. So of course there is no way to officially make an order irregardless of what agreements have been made with the dealer.

    In my country, in Germany, you have to order asap. Last week told me my dealer, he have a waiting list from 40 buyers for the new F8 Tributo Spider. So delivery time in round about 3 years. And the car don't exist at the time. When the people got the 488 spider, they ordered for the next spider :-(

    I ordered also a 812 Spider. I am the 5th on the list. I agree with you. No dealer has received any allocations or rules. No way to officially make an order. But if you wait to long, you get the car in 3,5 years. (if you get one) Because all in front of the list get the car before.

    Hong Kong is also a very tough market to purchase a new Ferrari. Big customers have 200,000 in money for deposit held by the dealer for new Ferrari models before they are even announced officially by Ferrari.

    Nearly forgot.
    Other bit of info was that in UK (at least) criteria to qualify for an 812 convertible is current ownership of a GTC4 Lusso or Portofino (i.e. a GT car) plus current ownership or allocated order for a hard top 812.As always I'm sure some people will get them who don't meet the criteria.

    Will probably be same/similar criteria for 812 VS assuming that car happens, with perhaps additional qualifier of multiple V12's...

    This is for sure not an official criteria. Only at your dealer. But nice to share with us. Thank you. Because the Ferrari dealers don't know anything about the car. They have no official infos from this car. And when nobody have an info, they could not have criterias.

    How can some have an invite for the reveal, meaning they passed selection, and no criteria have been communicated?

    Same. I actually wonder if dealers that has yet to hear about the 812 Spider and requirements, might possibly not even get allocations. I've heard a few things about requirements from what I would call reliable sources. The above with the Lusso and Porto fits well. Time will tell. Can't be long before the order books open in the MODIS system and deposits can be taken. But at this point, a deposit is only between the dealer and potential buyer as no order can be sent to Maranello.
