Rusty Disk Rotor in Brand New Car?

Heya, anyone seen rusty disk rotor when collected brand new car?
The reason I am asking because normally the car sits weeks/months at port and in dealership's warehouse. Those disk rotors are very prone to rust, isn't it?
I know I am noob and I want to enrich myself from your experience :-)

Yes. Rotors will rust literally within MINUTES of getting wet. They are cast iron. It is completely normal, and will wear off after a few minutes of driving. They can even rust so quickly that it can take a bit of engine power to "unlock" the pads from the rotors the next morning if you parked the car after having driven in the rain.

So, even on collection brand new, I will definitely see rusty rotors?

If you wash the car, by the time you are drying, there is already rust forming on the rotors. So yes, it's possible.

Here's a YouTube video that explains all about this. Just don't do the oiling trick they use, just drive the car to fix that surface rust.

Thank you guys for the replies. It is totally understandable about nature of the elements. But, isn't manufacturer should follow a way so that at least rust will start growing after leaving the dealership?
I am just nut about it. I work for Apple and I saw that all brand new products from Apple feels so nice and satisfying when you buy it. (after that what happens, thats another story thou)

you are asking if you can figure out a way to blacken the sun because you think it is too bright. Or make food with zero calories.

I know I sounds stupid. Reason behind it is, my Brand new 86 is set to deliver end of this month. So many stupid things coming in my mind and can not get rid off it. Thats why I came to you guys.

They could only deliver vehicles from the factory when it isn't raining (or in an enclosed shipping container), and instruct the dealership not to wash the vehicle at all before delivering it to the customer... but this isn't a Ferrari, so that isn't going to happen. It gets shipped on an open transport truck, where it will get wet, and start to rust, and it'll get washed by the dealership before being delivered to you.

It's just how cars work.
