STO getting plenty of attention on Ferrarichat. Lots of interest and likes, but I wonder how many will actually be lucky enough to end up with one...........................
I have a better chance of winning the lottery and getting struck by lightning on the way home 😊. At least there’s no pressure on me.I wouldn't be too confident until you get a confirmation that HQ has accepted the build. Dealers love to BS and keep buyers thinking they're getting a slot until they tell you they have no allocation remaining. The fact Japan is confirmed to get 150 cars means allocation is going to be tight and there won't be a massive dump of allocation as some predicted. STO will not be a repeat of the Performante.
In Canada the 3 main dealers received around an average of 4 slots, Calgary probably 2. The VVIP's spec'd the market intro cars few weeks ago so they're confirmed to get the first STOs in April. Beyond this will be a fight for a 1st year car.
Fire sale on your incoming? It'll free you up.......LOL!That can't be easy, but I am sure you will not be disappointed. If I hadn't already ordered my EVO RWD I think I would be after one of these. I honestly didn't think I would like it, but even the wing is done so tastefully that I like it now. The front bonnet really looks spectacular. I guess the next thing is how will people like the feel of the interior and the ride. The seats should be great, and the harness might take some getting used to.
Ask the forum and you'll get as many opinions as there are colors. And that's what's amazing about the STO - it looks so good in just about any color!Still deciding on the spec, I might go black or I might go AdP. So many combos work with the STO so it's hard to commit to one spec lol.
Great comments and insight. In your shoes, I’d be pretty excited as well......I am stunned by the amount of attention this car has received on Fchat. It’s a complete phenomenon. I think it’s a combination of things, but two factors seem to loom largest: 1). the STO is an unapologetic final embodiment of what made ICE cars so special to so many of us...NA, noise, relative lightness, and hyper focused on driver experience, 2). the entire “race car for the road” ethos. I was perfectly happy with my Performante until the STO was revealed, and then I quickly put my money down for a forecasted Q3/Q4 delivery. Like everyone else, I am super excited. Working through my spec now.
I asked about 2022s, and was told by dealer they simply don’t know, which IMO is a credible response. I doubt any dealer would put it in writing, though in the case of the STO it would be more than a bit disappointing for a car with such a pedigree to show up with one when not expected by the purchaser.Yes I agree, the dealer would probably never make a written commitment especially because they have no idea when we will see the GPF.
Love the gift Leon!
Better off flipping a coin than trying to figure this one out for EVO and STO.........I see the Huracan uses a combination of both MPI and DI. Could this enable them to escape the need for GPFs?
Also, what are the odds that they produce STO’s with different exhaust systems depending on the end market? It seems they are already doing so for the Evo so it would stand to reason they’d do the same for the STO.
Agreed 100%. I have a deposit on the F8 Spider, where the GPF has already been added, so the damage is done. Interestingly, during discussions the dealer brought up aftermarket possibilities with GPF delete, and the fact that it wouldn't void the warranty.Keep in mind MY21's have EPA certification and it's very unlikely Lamborghini will add GFP to MY21's this late in the MY so my guess is if they end up adding GFP it'll be for MY22.
Also there's a new adminstration on Jan 20th so I suspect they'll be major changes at the EPA which will most lilkely align itself with EU emission polices.
I don’t know about sound, but in the US, different states set their own emissions standards for vehicles. I live in FL and we actually don’t have any standards or inspections.I don't know the laws in the states, can your cars be as loud as you want them to be?
In Germany we can't just change the exhaust and take out the GPF, that would be illegal.
Not sure about this one........I disagree, it’s not required in the US so there is no reason a dealer wouldn’t help you out. Cat back exhaust generally don’t void warranties, and if a dealership tried to use that as a basis for not covering a repair it would be overturned in court(I have personally had that experience). The Ferrari gpf is monitored by sensors, Audi and porsche are not, hence no CEL.
Yes. There were folks in and out. Was a Saterday before the car was headed to ATL.Was that at the Charlotte dealership? Not much of a turnout; was it COVID or before the official scheduled reveal time?
