Fastest way of buying a brand new ferrari 458 italia in the us?

Hi guys i am an international student from China. I just moved to the US to finish my college education. I wanna buy a 458 italia but both ferrari dealers in my area told me the wait would be a little more than a year. In china we normally just go to a car show and buy brand new cars there since there the waitlist is just insanely long. is it the same in the us? can i buy brand new ferraris from carshows here? if not what is the fastest way of buying one? thanks a lot for the help

new can be tough. You are going to need to call around. "used", not as bad.

there are 5 on cars.com right now. surely others on other sites.

Congratulations!!

That is quite something, owning one of the best sportscars ever made as a collage student! I like that.

Do you intend to bring it back to China? I would love to hear about your writing from driving a 458 in China, especially if you plan to drive it on longer drives around the country. I remember reading about the Ferrari tour of China a few years ago in a couple of Scagliettis, great reading and photography.

Good luck with your purchase! Keep us informed, will you?

@wetpet yeah i kinda realized that lol i think i might have to put down an order for a brand new.

@il Capolino thanks lol i am planning on bringing the car back to china after im done with college, but if there are new models out then who knows. in china most of the exotic car drivers dont do much long distance driving as a group. most of the time we have gatherings on race tracks and have fun with the cars there. ill definitely keep you updated

i forgot to add, wave around a lot of cash and see what the dealers do. Who knows? I had a customer of mine buy her husband a new 430 for christmas back when there was a two year wait. I imagine she paid dearly for the privilege.
