It is unfortunate that you must pay to see the collection, the worst part is I doubt they let you go downstairs to see the rest of the cars. I am not a fan of Penske/Wynn as I was in Vegas just before Christmas and had an appointment to view and or drive any 550/575 that I was interested in. Unfortunately they sold the 550 but I looked at the 575's. I told the salesman I only wanted a 6 speed ,no F1 equipped cars were under consideration, in no uncertain terms, and they 575's must have the correct suspension, Fiorano. My salesman gave me a blank eyed stare and showed me the 575 once owned by Axel Rose (like I would care) and tried to tell me how that car was so much better for the fact, it was an F1 equipped car. So we went downstairs and all the Marenello's down there were F1 cars, nothing of interest to me so after a brief conversation I left. The next day my salesman called me to inform me that the manager and he felt that the F1 cars held their value better and I should purchase one rather than a 6 speed. I made the point to them that I am not concerned about the retained value of the car, I want a clutch and a 6 speed period, and I was rather irritated at the hard sell tactics they represented. Needless to say I doubt I would purchase a car from Wynn even if they had the right one, due to their lack of concern about what I want, what makes me the customer happy. A overall bad dealership visit in my opinion.

It is indeed a shame that you had to pay. I went to Symbolic Motors in La Jolla, and they gladly let me take video/pictures of the WHOLE showroom. I was also allowed to do this at a small fine auto dealership on the way to La Jolla, the same day.

Another......

.......bad review from someone who has visited that dealership. I find it hard to believe that Ferrari does not hear about these occurances and do something about it? Seems to be the story more often than not. I also thought I heard that if you are a FCA member that you get in for free? The next time I'm in Vegas I will have to go see this place and see how they treat me. I'll let everyone know for sure. Whats really bad is that the salesmen probably don't even own Ferrari's themselves, and act like jerks because of what status they think they have for being a "Ferrari" salesmen. Total posers. Fortunately the Dealrership close to me Is completely the opposite. Great people, friendly, informitive,Top Shelf! They even tolerate me! And that says a lot! :D

Cheers!

I was down there last week to visit the parts department. You can tour for free if you're a Ferrari owner. I suppose they do this since they are in a casino. You should see the crowds outside the doors.

Anyway, didn't talk to any of the sales staff, but I was extremely pleased with A.J. in the parts department. He was very friendly and helpfull. A refreshing change from the elitist parts managers I have encountered at other dealerships who look at you with disdain when you tell them you work on your own car.

Ah yes, that monument to Wynns and Pensky's egos.

It has all the class and taste as the rest of Las Vegas.

They put a Ferrari/Maserati dealership in the main floor of the newest casino in Las Vegas.

Much to their (and no one else's) surprise they had so many tourists and tire kickers wanting to come in and look at the pretty cars that they have had to understandably limit entry.

I really do understand it is a real problem for them. I have spent a very large percentage of my adult life working in Ferrari dealers and even when they are somewhat remote it is still a very big problem. For them however the steps they have had to take to limit it has caused a problem with public perception. It is a problem which anyone that has ever worked in an exotic car dealer saw coming from a long way away and is the reason I call it a monument to their egos.
