posted here a couple weeks ago. my dad was offering 200k on some 458s but then he convinced himself to wait for the 488 since he likes the lights way more

when does this car come out in the US to buy? whats the approximate cost? why the fuck is there so little info?
>>

not doubting but just wondering why he wants that car for 200k instead of any others

Troll? Just go to a Ferrari dealership and ask, I'm sure you'll get better responses then on an anonymous Scandinavian Post-it board.

There aren't that many others

he thinks:

If you don't have previous pedigree with Ferrari, you likely won't get a car for a long time. The cars get allocations based on customers previous buying history, the better the pedigree the sooner you get the car. Also dealer allocations are limited, so whatever dealership you buy from might speed or slow your delivery.

You can still get one second hand, but you'd be paying WAY over list from a broker who got it second hand, which is stupid. The great thing when you can get them is that driving the first year you don't take much of a hit on them depreciation wise since people can't get them.

>when does this car come out in the US to buy?
It's already getting delivered. First ones are already driving.

>whats the approximate cost?
Really depends how you option it. Ferraris have a wide range in cost. I want to say they start around 250k

>why the fuck is there so little info?
Ferrari has great branding but their technical marketing is always a little rough. Can be hard to find good info, but they produce a beautiful magazine for customers and do some great hard cover books they send to dealers and good customers when new cars come out.
>>
>>14193461
Faster too if you really care

But Ferrari fags only want the stupid fucking horse on the hood despite there being better cars out there in practically every category

Have you driven a 458i? Exactly. I have and it was probably the greatest experience of my life. I've driven aventadors, 911s, r8s, huracans, and the 458i was the only one that felt perfect. You can benchrace all you want but at the end of the day you have no idea what you're talking about.
>>
>>14193512
They're all nice to drive, but it's a shit car to own

>Porsche probably makes the only supercars that you can own and drive everyday
This. I've been around a lot of sports cars, Porsche might not look the most exotic, but that shit you can drive every day.
>>
>>14193521
Porsches feel like VWs. They're great cars and you'd be hard pressed to find fault in them but they don't scare you like a Ferrari does. You feel safe driving a Porsche and that ruins it for me.
>>
>>14193523
So...
>>
>>14193536
>Porsches feel like VWs
lol no

>Ferraris are scary
Modern ones? Aw hell nah
Most dangerous part about them is that they'll burn to a crisp while you're sitting I traffic
>>
>>14193546
I haven't had a problem with them overheating.. boss has had 360, 430 and 458s since I've been around. I did hear that the older ones had overheating problems though.
>>
>>14193546
>>14193559
oh nevermind, you were referring to the fire problem, sorry I'm tired. That was the glue or some shit... fucking crazy.
>>
>>14193546
If a Ferrari doesn't scare you you're driving it wrong. I daily a gli and when I sat in the 15 carerra 4s and grabbed the wheel it made me think immediately of my jetta. It has the same seat rail levers for fucks sake. The Continental GT feels less like a VW from the inside than a 911.
>>
>>14193559
Dude 458s literally had a problem with going up in flames

Ferrari offered a "free upgrade" because they're too arrogant to call it a recall
>>
my mom DD's a '14 911 c4 cab. my parents have had vettes and a 6 series. the vette was too harsh (and cheap feeling) for daily use, the 6 lacked the fun when you wanted it. the 911 is perfect for both daily use and screwing around.
>>
>>14193567
You can scare yourself in any car if you drive reckless enough

Reminder that Porsche has a car called the widow maker, it Ferrari
>>
>>14193579
Porsche hasn't had a widowmaker since like 84 or some shit. The only reason the F40 wasnt a widow maker was because there was only like 1330 and most of the owners weren't married.

Then can't justifiably talk about driving Ferraris can you? I don't think this is the thread for you.
>>
Yeah I've posted threads about mercedes and porsches and the threads always derail into how should buy a different car

Ferraris are absolutely beautiful and drive nice, it's obviously not going to be his daily driver tho
>>
>>14193654
This. Kids on this board only know how to benchrace.
>>
>>14193387
>>14193224
Wouldn't tell me. Most likely near the 300k mark
>>
>>14193804
I already said earlier ( >>14193804 ), it starts around 250k. Your hunch is right though, by the time you option them it is closer to 300k or even a bit above. The little carbon pieces and bullshit really add up too, you can make them as high as you want.
>>
>>14193861
That's what they do now a days. Not that I'm complaining, I have no interest in Ferraris. Really, finding one that will be at base price is like finding a unicorn.
>>
>>14193882
Yeah.. Sometimes the ones with less options end up looking better in my experience. Saw a blue 458 the other day, that nice metallic they have, with a tan interior and Daytona seats. Wasn't a super expensive one but man it looked great. If they guy would have put on the carbon fiber doors and diffusor and whatever else it would have not looked as good.
>>
>>14193151
So let me get this straight...

Your dad is choosing between what may well be the last ever NA v8 Ferrari and the turbocharged future that is going to replace it based on what the damned LIGHTS look like?

Fucking normies, I swear to God...
>>
>>14193929
Definitely. With full carbon fiber options they look ridiculous.
>>
>>14193930
But the 488 will be significantly more powerful and therefore faster.
>>
>>14193988
Around 50 more hp and 50%more downforce. It's an improvement on perfection.

I've driven nearly every Ferrari manufactured after 1980 including nearly every rare run (Barchetta, SuperAmerica, 16M, 458 Speciale, Challenge cars) and all the newest ones. NOTHING compares to the Mondial T. I know all you benchracers wouldn't understand but hopefully someday you get the chance to feel the visceral, engaging experience only found in Mondials.

Have you guys ever driven a left hand drive car where all 3 pedals are to the right of the steering column? Features like that are the definition of exotic, any car can have more vents, fins, carbon fiber, and emblems, but few are daring enough to pull off something like that.

One day...

>>14194552
Lol fuuuck that
>>
>>14193929
Yeah. I know a guy who owns a 458 that's a black metallic and red guts. Fun thing to drive fast, but I would never buy one because of the lose of money.

I know I shouldn't say this, but I find Ferraris to be to civil. The only Italian super cars I enjoy are older lambos. They have this feeling that is like nothing else. The vibrations and howl from the big V12 and absolute embarrassment of opening those scissor does is something that makes it feel more human.

Oldest lamborghini I've driven was a 10 gallardo 550-2 and it had some character but you couldn't get around how VAG it is. The Aventador is just dreadful as a drivers car. Its just a party trick with awd. Huracan is pretty serious when its in Race mode but in Strada or Sport, its just completely unresponsive. And I'm sorry, flipping those doors up feels so good. When you nudge it with your elbow and it slides up at the perfect speed and you throw a leg out trying not to smile because you feel so cool.
>>
>>14194594
No.
>>
>>14194626
Trust me the doors make me feel special, but at the same time I'm pretty sure I don't look all that cool getting out of the thing. I'm 6'3" and I put on quite the show trying to get in and out of.
I've had the very, very, very, lucky chance of driving a early 70's Countach. Absolute animal of a car. It smells like something burning, there's also the smell of gasoline, it's cramped, hot and noisy. Yet I enjoyed it so much because it was something for the senses. It felt like hell at red lights and felt like death when going around a bend.
>>
>>14195036
Im 5'6" so my foot doesn't touch the ground until I push myself off the seat. I drove an i8 and the carbon tub comes up a good 4" above the doorframe which is 3" above the seat. It's proper comedy watching tall people try to fold themselves into trying to go feet first. There's literally one correct way to get in. Sit ass first on the tub and slide backwards intp the seat and then swing your legs in. Its nearly impossible for fat people. Cool doors on the bimmer too.
Funny story about it. I was at a chipotle in Boca and some highschool girls were gawking hard and as me and my friend were leaving their mom comes up and asks if we could give them a ride in the cars (friend was in a 458). So I'm giving this jailbait a ride, thrashing it a bit, and she won't stop asking me to marry her and telling me she loved me. Pretty sure she left a stain in the seat.

If your dad wants a new 488, he is going to have to roll around in a few used Ferraris for a couple a years before getting first dibs on a new one. Its stupid, but I guess supercar companies can get away with this "brand loyalty" bullshit becuase the demand for their product is high, but the production is relatively low.

I've already seen three of them puttering aound Shanghai and the dealer has four of them on display

You're a moron. If you Healy have driven most Ferraris then you would know the Mondial was a steaming pile of shit. Easily one of the worst vehicles to ever wear the badge. The power was horrible, the chassis was squishy, the FI never worked right. The list goes on. If you want to drive an engaging Ferrari then drive the F512M. Easily one of the best and purist cars Ferrari ever made.
