In all seriousness though, how can pissing off a loyal and wealthy customer base be smart marketing by Ferrari?

It's a limited edition.... Some people have to be disappointed.
I love my car. Buy your own

Sure. My point is that their selection criteria excludes appropriate loyal clients and favours less deserving customers.
It is what it is and time will tell if it blows up in their faces or not.

Ferraris treatment of loyal customers is absolutely ridiculous. Having said that, Preston Henn isn't a stranger to lawsuits - although it is generally the other way around.

Think about it this way. What if they only sold f50 to f40 buyers, then Enzo to f50 buyers, then lafa to Enzo buyers etc....

There would be no new buyers in the pool. What then?

Apparently Ford were even more silly with the new GT allocation where your video application and social media following played a large part in who got a car.

As silly as it sounds, I seriously hope he gets something out of it.  Ferrari are so far up their awn asses they're well and truly overdue for a bitch slap.

That would be correct if it wasn't for the ever increasing size of the production runs of these limited models. Don't believe the advertised numbers!

Given the stories I have heard about him, my real worry out of this is that Preston is as likely to hoist #6885 up by a crane and drop it just to prove a point.

I kind of get such an action. Ever Since the Ferrari Deadmau5 incident I kind of hate them as a company.
