    Yeah, IDK about other ferraris, but Sears imports says that there are 5 Mercedes SLR McLarens in the state.

    There was a nice F40 that was stored for a day or two at Maserati of Minneapolis a few years ago supposedly. I also know of a 16M in Minnetonka.

    A friend of mine had a Silver Vanquish w Q-Citura Seats and Headliner for sale about (maybe 9 months ago) at the Maserati store. I also saw a black SLR with Minnesota plates, parked alongside a black Drophead with big wheels (MN plates as well) in Scottsdale.....

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread but wanted to clarify, the F1 that caught fire in California did have an owner from Minnesota but wouldn't have been the same car there in 2002-2003. In fact I don't know which F1 that might have been.

    The car that burned in June 2009 in Santa Clara, CA was chassis #067 and I believe it changed hands from its previous owner, Elon Musk, sometime in 2007.

    After the fire it was sent back to the factory to be rebuilt and just over one year later it was returned to its Minnesota owner. I wouldn't guarantee it is kept locally though, as he claimed he'd had it stored in California for about 6 months prior to the fire and he once displayed it at the Sun River Festival in Oregon.

    You can read the story of the car's rebuild here online:

    I saw a yellow F40 at Wheels Of Italy in Minneapolis a couple years ago, I think the year was 2010.
    I have also seen pictures that my cousin took of a red F50 near Lake Minnetonka.
    I have heard that there are no Enzos currently in the state, but I wouldn't be surprised if there where.

    The F40 was from out of state. The was one here a while back that is now gone. Don't know about an F50 and there are no Enzos.

    There will be a Bugatti Veyron at Wixon Jewelers on Friday.
