The stocks for common savers is a forceful reality.

A person can hardly buy 200 dollars today in Argentina.

But just as true as this Central Bank measure is the exchange rate splitting scenario that allows super-high-end cars to be brought from abroad at the official dollar price.

That is, at 79 pesos and coins.

Only in this way is it explained that the country, in full quarantine, has entered 6 late-model Ferraris, 4 Maserati MC20s are on the way and a $ 300,000 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder has made headlines for its massive irruption in Buenos Aires.

, the kind you only see in movies or on fan circuits.

In times of soaring poverty, land seizures in the suburbs and a difficult future,

a rain of machines flourishes.

They are sophisticated pieces, of sidereal luxury.

They arrive in silence, by boat or plane, favored by the economic conditions established by the Government, healthy for a select minority.

This is what reveals the history of the Lamborghini

that left Italy for the United States by sea and was then brought by plane to the cargo terminal of the Ezeiza International Airport.

The platinum gray ship entered the country on behalf of Guillermo Chetta, an automotive entrepreneur, owner of a team and a historic Honda dealership located in San Isidro.

It had an initial cost, originally, of

$ 301,738.73

, but with the sum of taxes plus freight expenses, Chetta, who would not be the final owner, ended up paying almost

$ 700,000


The importer, according to data released by Customs, was Carlos José Alberto González.

One of the Ferrari 488 Pista Spider that arrived in Argentina.

The image of the car went viral immediately, after the same cargo employees published videos of the shooting on the networks.

At the weekend the car made its debut on asphalt

, first at the racetrack and then in front of the Chetta dealership in the north, where residents gathered around the convertible.

Chetta made jokes because in the networks the arrival of the car was falsely associated with Máximo Kirchner.

"I am Maximum", says Chetta in a video that circulates.

But all this is not an isolated piece of news, but an import that is linked with others that

only fans or businessmen in the sector know.

Buying luxury cars has practically no secrets.

By Central Bank regulations, they are listed at the official dollar.

In other words, the buyer who has the dollars, sells them in the parallel market or delivers them directly to the concessionaire, ends up paying an extremely low price in pesos.

Before the super stocks, with a 30% gap between official and parallel, there were already good conditions.

But now that the difference has nearly doubled, it's all set for a fast and furious trickle of sales.

Industry sources admit that "orders soared."

The phenomenon is noticed in specialized pages, where car fans celebrate the arrival of each model and dedicate articles to their ability to go from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in a few seconds.

But also to its buyers.

One of the characters of the moment, for example, is

Malek Fara


Young businessman, born in 1976. A note published last May by the portal says so.

Who is Málek Fara?

His name transcended the world of car fans and became news when

- in just one week and in full quarantine - he

brought four zero kilometer Ferraris to Argentina.

He already has six Ferraris in this strange 2020 ”.

Maserati and the new MC20: there are already four units confirmed for Argentina

Fara appears as CEO of Modena Auto Sport, official representative of Maserati in Argentina and also importer of Ferrari and Rolls Royce.

Amidst the obstacles and special permits due to the coronavirus quarantine, Fara entered four red 0km into the country.

According to Autoblog, the four specimens "are among the most exotic models of a car that is already very exclusive."

Two nearly identical copies of the 458 Speciale arrived on May 14.

On May 18, a 488 Runway arrived and at the end of that month another 488 Runway was released in the Port.

Price in Argentina of a 488 Pista: 1.2 million dollars.

More models.

More stories.

In September Maserati presented the new MC20, a brand new sports car that is at the top of the model range of the Italian firm.

Its doors open upwards: they are called “butterfly doors”.

According to the Fara concessionaire, four units of the MC20 will arrive in the first half of 2021.

The market value ranges from $ 600,000 to $ 800,000.

Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder

Porsche also appears in the lot of brands.

At the beginning of September, it presented the first

Porsche Taycan Turbo S

to arrive in Argentina.

It is the first 100% electric sports car of the German brand.

Market value: $ 559,000.

It will be the only one to arrive this year, but there are three on the way for 2021 and some are already sold.

Relief and expectation.

The two words go through a sector that is itself very small, but which was favored by this context in which the majority of Argentines basically lose.

They are movie cars.

Of unforgettable scenes.

As for example

Zero Dark Thirty

, Kathryn Bigelow's movie, the one in which a Pentagon envoy needs to bribe an Arab to tell him where Bin Laden is hiding.

The meeting takes place in Dubai.

The sheikh takes him to a shop window and says, "I'm telling you, but I want that in return," and points out an amazing Lamborghini.

But perhaps less, than those who now arrive in Argentina.
