I myself am partial to the Ferrari 575/550 Marranello. Probably the last modern ferrari I have been attractedto. Otherwise I love the 250, 275, 246 Dino, and the 330.
However IfI could only have one its be the 275
I was getting one of the first, an '05, but they did a "factory upgrade" on the car - added bluetooth, navigation, ceramic brakes, and other stuff I didn't want. At least that's the story I was told, though I suppose it is just as likely that it was just a story because a better customer came along and hopped in front - who knows? In any event, I was in no rush, so I said, what the hell, let's just reorder, then I can get an '06 anyway. So we reordered, etc., and it finally came in at the end of June.
As you probably know, there is no real "list." The dealer sells to whoever he wants, and if you are a Ferrari VIP, you get in front of everyone else. I think 2-3 years is probably standard, though I'm sure there are some people who are on the "list" who will never get cars. Buying a used car from the dealer in the meantime will probably really help your chances. It's a pretty ridiculous game that they play, but there it is. Ferrari is the only company that can play it, so why not.
For the Enzo replacement, they are going to be even more selective about who they sell to. Ferrari looks at a bunch of different things such as: Does the client participate in the Challenge series? What is the oldest Ferrari in their collection? Did the client ever flip cars without going through their Ferrari dealer? How many 8 cylinder car have they purchased new? How many 12 cylinder cars have they purchased new? Do they participate in shows such as Cavallino, Pebble Beach, etc, etc? What other exotic supercars do they have in their collection? What other Ferrari supercars do they have? It's crazy...
