    Hello Listers,
    I am going to be in Lima over the Holidays, I was wondering if there was a Ferrari dealer in Lima Peru? This will be my third trip to Peru, but first to Lima. If not a Ferrari dealer are there any dealers of Exotics there?
    Thanks in advance for your reply,
    Peter

    Hi, I know this topic is old but in case anyone else is interested I thought I would do justice to Peru

    As a matter of fact, there is much more in Peru than one would imagine.

    There are a few Ferrari on the streets in Lima. The main dealers I know are Fiat and SKbergé. SKBergé imports Ferrari and Maserati for Chile, and I am pretty sure they could also handle the import for Peru.

    Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-AMG and Porsche are well established. I have seen some Audi R8 and AMG in the streets.
    I have also seen a few Lamborghini, but I don't know any retailer. I assume they must have been imported 'privately'.

    There is also a very nice private collection mixing classic and more modern cars worth seeing, belonging to Nicolini (http://www.museodeautosnicolini.com/). They also do restoration. I have seen a few cars shipped from Europe to be restored there.

    Here is what used to happen to a lot of classic sports cars imported to Peru. This was brought over by a Japanese collector who passed away while working in Peru leaving the car to fend for it's self. It was completely rusted out when found in the mud.

    I know this post is a little old, but you are correct. SKBerge imports Ferrari, they take orders but just don't have any in stock. Maserati does have a dealership now.
    I've counted around 50 Ferraris in Peru. The most "common" model is the 488 with around 15. Im pretty sure there are a few more Ferraris that i havent seen though.

    Lamborghini and Bentley just opened their dealership a few months ago, that means most of the big brands are here now. (Aston Martin and Mclaren opened one a few years ago).

    Thanks for the heads-up!

    I found out about McLaren being in Lima doing some research after ending up behind a 720S for a few minutes in San Isidro. But I did not know about Lamborghini and Bentley, and it seems they are just a few blocks away... I might go and check them once the situation will have improved.
