Penske Wynn Epilogue

Ferrari 458 Speciale

In our last episode, the good folks at Penske Wynn Maserati charged ordinary mortals to stroll among the cars offered for sale. However, they also said, “no photos,” claiming it was a policy at the Wynn.  Ever a fan of the scientific method, we tested this claim. Anecdotal evidence belies the claim.

I walked around on the Wynn property, whipping my camera out indiscriminately. No one said word one about it.  Some “policy.” I did it on all three days in Vegas.  We know they have no problem enforcing rules like no buskers/beggars/sleeping on or smoking the fake grass. Maybe no photos is more about favoring  the privacy interests of the whales that can afford to roll in one of these.  They’d rather not be recorded browsing, tyvm. Maybe no photos is naked elitism – we’d rather not accommodate the drooling masses and their pedestrian whims, now that these idiots have paid to walk our car lot.

Regardless, the policy did not stop me. There has to be a more fitting conclusion than” nanner, nanner, nanner,” but given the pretensions already in play, we’ll take the low road, as the one less traveled.

Well, i guess I am not going inside after all…

Facebook to the rescue again.

  • Josh ****** Why is it that you charge to get in your dealership and still won’t let anyone take pics …??? When I purchase a Ferrari it will not be in Vegas which would be cool … It will be at a dealer that had more respect for me when I was window shopping 
  • Penske Wynn Maserati Josh, we apologize for the any inconvenience that our policies may cause. Since our dealership is a part of the Wynn hotel we are expected to follow the rules and regulations that have been put in place. We are happy to show you any of our makes/models but in order for us to keep in good standing and continue to have our dealership in a great location we must adhere to the rules. Thank you, Penske Wynn Maserati

I went there with my camera in 2009 – they had a Ferrari FXX. Yeah, baby!

I didn’t go inside, because”WHAT?!?!? $10 to walk inside a car dealer? WTF?”

I went back each of the three subsequent trips to Vegas for SEMA.  I had heard things about spicy Italian tarts on the lower floor (no windows), but what was upstairs (Maserati coupes, 430s, 458s) was lame and pedestrian for my $10.  I could see that stuff trolling the Strip for free.  I didn’t notice any “no photos” sign in ’09, but that might have been due to the immediate shock of a cover charge with no SEMA-type models showing off the cars.

Nowhere on their websites, dealer or resort, do they state these “rules” or “policies.”  (as of today, as far as I could find.)

Personally, I think it’s just continued dickishness of Ferrari dealers, projected onto the resort as a symbiotic fake scapegoat.
