A total of nine UK Ferrari Dealers have been nominated as “Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops” as part of a bid to ensure classic supercars get the aftersales treatment they deserve.
The workshops, individually known as “Officina” (Italian for workshop), will authorise the dealer to implement the Ferrari Classiche certification process and ensure the correct maintenance and/or repair of Ferrari cars over 20 years old.
The total number of nominations worldwide amounts to 48 dealerships over 20 markets.
In the UK, the newly-accredited Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops are:
- Dick Lovett, Swindon
- Graypaul, Nottingham
- HR Owen, London
- JCT600, Leeds
- Joe Macari, Wandsworth
- Lancaster, Colchester
- Maranello Service, Egham
- Meridien Modena, Lyndhurst
- Stratstone, Manchester
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.
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, the brand said.
The programme will continue to develop in the future with the nomination of more dealers as recognised Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops in other markets.
