    I’m sure it’s been mentioned before that customers of new cars receive a humidor box with model car and place to store a key. But what about the artwork?

    I received this in the post recently showing a sketch of my Spider matching the spec of my car. What a nice touch.

    I hope that is not replacing the model car?

    I'm not sure, I only have the chrome model and not the customised model.

    I have received couple of gifts from my Ferrari official deale (Ferrari mug, caps, wallet, key chain .etc). But no artwork.

    But still waiting for the gifts from Ferrari factory. I have been told it takes 8-12 weeks. Lets see if they send something like that :)

    My GTB was delivered in April 2018. I received the CF gift box with the chrome model in July. Several weeks later, I received a scale model which matches my car in perfect detail. And finally, a month or so later, I received a lithograph which also matches my car and bears the last six digits of the vin.

    It is my understanding that the scale model is no longer provided; only the chrome model. I was fortunate to fall between the transition and consequently received both.

    Same here, Chrome model only (along with the wooden designer "Key" box), but that was a year ago, not sure what is being given now. Also received a bottle of "Ferrari" wine with my name and model added to the label, but that might have been from the dealer, never asked. It was also cool to receive a call from Italy thanking me for the purchase, I was very surprised considering the perception often voiced here that Ferrari doesn't really care what we think, that has not been my experience.

    Last conversation with Ferrari Customer Service in Italy was that my F12tdf model is coming soon. But that car was delivered now almost 1 1/2 years ago. I've got an incoming 488 Spider and MyFerrari had a box to check to receive a gift - so I'll find out soon what that is.

    In the past I've sporadically received lithographs with only one having the serial number, two humidors with chrome models, and some leather pouches. In other words everything has been incredibly inconsistent.

    I value the letter received from Luca in 2014 thanking me for buying a Speciale and the letter he sent when he left.
    Not special notepaper and signed in purple ink but still nicer than an email !

    Yes I've gotten some letters too. I should round everything up and take a few pictures.

    My 2019 488 GTB was delivered in August 2018. No artwork here. I received the carbon fiber humidor a week after delivery. The leather pouch and letter a couple months later. The scale model arrived in late January, 5 months after the car arrived at the dealership. I haven’t received the artwork.

    Question, did you receive the leather pouch at the same time with your artwork? I received the humidor box and the artwork, but not the leather pouch. :(

    Not at all. It was all totally random. The Lithograph went to the dealer and the pouch came directly to me. If I recall everything was delivered post purchase. Leather pouch was only for the Tdf and Lusso (maybe just for 12 cylinder cars?)

    I got the pouch, the signed letter, the scale model and the lithograph but no box with chrome model and key holder. Maybe the dealer hasn't passed it on.

    That is a really nice litho of your car. Miha is very talented!

    I assume the cigar box and chrome model is only for the newer keyless go Ferraris. 458s, Californias, and F12s excluded.

    my 488 GTB came on January 2018 . I am in Toronto and I just got the leather pouch. I thought I was going to get a die cast model of my car. Does anyone know what Canadians get when they buy a car ?

    I got the chrome model after about 7 months, and am still waiting for the scale model. I’ve emailed Ferrari multiple times and they keep saying it’s coming soon - the latest estimate is now May, which is 16 months after I got the car (!!!). I received the leather pouch a few weeks ago, completely unexpectedly. It’s really quite crazy how random and slow this is.

    There are perhaps some unique challenges involved in creating that particular tdF model in correct detail! ;)

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I just need to be more patient ;)
