    Taken a short trip to Ecuador next week and wondering if F-cars even exist out there? Does anyone have any idea? Anyone on Fchat live out there?
    Thanks

    This is an old post but just came across it again. I was just in Quito 6 weeks ago. I strained to look for exotics, but did not find any. I was excited to see a new Ford Mustang with stripes. While there, I thought it would be a great idea to have an exotic car club where Ferrari's can be driven on the Pan American highway which was recently paved and in great shape. The mountains were amazing and the driving would be thrilling. All I need is a few exotics and I am in business. If anyone knows of any special cars in Ecuador, please let me know.

    I know a family that lives in Quito and they are always on the lookout for cool cars to snap pictures of and send to me. To give you an idea of the quality of cars there, the other day i was shown by them a pic of a Mitsu 3000 GT. So there isnt much there! ha!!

    That being said - the PanAm Highway is super cool and blasting through there in a Ferrari would be special for sure - as long as you were safe.......

    When I was in Ecuador last year the closest thing to an exotic that I saw was a C6 Corvette in the outskirts of Quito. There was no shortage of regular cars with Ferrari shields on the fenders.

    I know there is a 360 en Ecuador, if I am not mistaken it is a CS, it was on display in a motor show in Bogota (Colombia), but it was bought by someone from ecuador it took it home.

    I've been to Guayaquil and some other cities in Ecuador. you will probably never see a Ferrari or any exotic. I remember driving past a Porsche dealer. They had one cayenne and one boxster.

    'Nuff said.

    Ive been there with my family for vacation. A nice place to visit but I don't think it's the right place to spot some exotics. During my stay there, I didn't even see one.

    I am South American myself and I have never seen pics of ferraris in Ecuador. My country (Perú) does have a few though.

    Been twice this year and going again in December for a few weeks. They do have a Porsche dealership there - had a nice Panamera in the showroom when i was there last. Have also seen a few Boxters driving around....lots of Cayennes....but nothing even remotely exotic yet. I will surely post a photo if i see anything on this trip....

    I have Ecuadorian friends but they keep all their F Cars outside that country. Sensible.

    Exactly. The families that i know there that can afford a Ferrari (or a few Ferraris) normally keep them in Miami or over in Europe.

    That being said, last time i was in Quito (Cumbaya actually) i saw a serious influx of nice cars. As that area grows and the road system in/around gets nicer i think some of the nicer cars will pop up.

    Bump for this thread.......heading down to Quito in a few months and would love to connect with some fellow car guys while there. A great friend of mine and my wifes cousin will be going for a cruise in a few cool classic cars one of the days were are there --- if you want to get in on the action PM me. Most likely in the Cumbaya area....

    Is it hard to import them to Ecuador? Say I wanted to send an fcar to Ecuador to keep at my Beach house for personal use, what kind of taxes am I looking at?
