I thought I read when researching mine that Festival Cars are sold to dealers at a lower invoice price. But that won't stop the dealer from saying they are "rare" and jacking the price up over MSRP to those that pay it...
I think they are classified as Program Cars. They can be sold as new up to a couple thousand miles I think, then they have to be sold as used cars.
