My Search for the F50 is now official!

OK now is the time i feel, to jump.
I really really would like a yellow car.... but red will also do.... or?
European car, especially if possible a swiss car.
Distance the car has already traveled is also not so important as I will for sure want to use it, so a pure road virgin is of no interest!
Anyone know of cars for sale? advise and here I go..... F50 shopping.
All and every bit of help is most helpful.
Thanks in advance guys

Cars
458 coupe normale, California T, Speciale A, 458 GT3, FF Maserati Ghibli diesel!
on way in 2015: La F, and 488, 2016 488 spider

A quick question:

Both Jimmy, yourself, and others have talked about the desirability of a 'Swiss provenance' car. What's the significance of one? Is it for importation reasons or other ones?

I've searched google and collector sites but can't seem to find the significance.

Swiss tend to be very methodical so the cars come with good service histories and are usually well maintained. Plus they only get driven about half the year.
