If you saw the leaked images of the 488 'GTO' and now you are planning to buy the new V8 supercar from Ferrari then hold on for a second because it turns out that you cannot just walk in to a showroom and place an order. This should not come as a surprise as Ferrari as well as various other top tier manufacturers have always focused on allocating their limited edition cars to the elite and loyal customers. So take a look at this image and see if you are fit enough to be considered as an eligible customer of the 488 'VS'.
Leaked image of the Eligibility Criteria
The tragic week for Ferrari continues as yet another document in relation to the new 488 VS has been leaked. VS refers to the series of special edition cars which Ferrari has manufactured over the years. Moving on to the title of the article, someone has managed to take a photo of the eligibility criteria of the new Ferrari supercar. I'll try my best to give you an overview of this photo.
As you can see, Ferrari have created four criteria to address the daunting task of allocating this supercar to the deserving individuals. If you have a 488 GTB and another V8 sports car, then congratulations you fit into the first criteria! That 488 VS dream could become a reality however we are not sure if that other V8 sports car needs to a Ferrari or from any other brand.
The second category addresses the individuals who are right up there on the top on Ferrari's elite customer list. If you are owning a Ferrari XX racecar or a Challenge racecar then you don't really need to stress over this process. Considering there aren't many members in this list, the competition could be very less which means everyone might get a piece of the pie.
If somehow, you are not addressed in the first two criteria but Ferrari still considers you as a 'Top Client', then you don't have to worry either. Ferrari could personally send you an invitation letter to try their latest offering.
The final category has been rightfully termed as 'Addicted Plus'. This is for those individuals who are already in possession of the previous special edition Ferraris such as F12tdf, 458 Speciale, LaFerrari, F40, Enzo and so on. If any of these special edition cars are currently residing in your garage along with 'standard' Ferraris then you are an 'Addicted Plus' Ferrari fanboy and this means you will most likely be offered the new hardcore version of the 488.
Bonus Category time! Ferrari have not forgotten about you V8 VS car collectors. If you are an owner of 458 Speciale/ Aperta, Scuderia, Challenge Stradale, 288 GTO or F40, you get promoted from the 'Addicted' to the 'Addicted Plus' category! Surely you will receive the next V8 special edition car. If not, we are not responsible for giving you hopes.
So there you have it! The allocations will be announced or begin from next week if this image was taken today. So take out your bragging guns and start firing in the direction of Ferrari and let them know why you deserve the new 488 VS.
