FERRARI NAMES 48 WORKSHOPS ‘CLASSICHE AUTHORIZED;’ DID YOURS MAKE THE LIST?
Named shops certified for work on older classics of the Prancing Horse
Is your Ferrari dealer good enough to be Ferrari Classiche? Two years ago, Ferrari set out to find, among its worldwide authorized dealers, those that were good enough not only at working on old cars, but that were qualified (and could be trusted) to certify old Ferraris as original. It was a long search. But today, Ferrari released a list of 48 such dealers, just 11 of which are in the U.S.
You can trust your car to the shop that bears the Ferrari Classiche sign
“Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops,” individually known as “Officina” (Italian for workshop), authorizes the dealer to implement the Ferrari Classiche certification process and ensure the correct maintenance and/or repair of Ferrari cars over 20 years old,” said Ferrari.
Certification grants access to the home shop in Maranello, too.
“Each Ferrari Classiche Officina will have the direct support of the Ferrari Classiche department at the factory in Maranello and, in return, must commit to maintaining a dedicated workshop ramp and a suitably qualified and trained Ferrari Classiche Service Technician exclusively for Ferrari Classiche maintenance, repair and certification applications,” Ferrari said.
But even these shops can’t do just everything.
“Naturally, any work on cars that requires the reconstruction of major parts or components, which may be necessary for the purposes of possible issue of the Ferrari Classiche Certification, will be carried out at the Ferrari factory.”
