Pls Help me

I bought my car exactly a week ago and I noticed today that the engine has rust all over it

Is it normal for a brand new car to have all that rust?

I live in Miami Florida if that counts.

Look at the pictures below.

It can't stay new forever.
Those cast iron exhaust manifolds are going to get rusty...

Yes. They put something on them to protect them from rust but it burns off very quickly.
Don't worry about it. They will get a nice rusty patina and look just like every other exhaust manifold in existence.

If I put an Engine Cover can the rust still be visible?

I don't know what you mean by engine cover.
Some people replace the stock manifolds with a set of headers that are ceramic coated to eliminate the rust issues.

Nah haahha the thing is that I wanted the GT Premium but the monthly payment was to high

I could have bought the Base GT but I just didn't like it.

Thats why I got V6 Premium with a few packages

so far I love my car

Spoken by a V8 owner who, if she is lucky, is barely pushing over 200hp.
