FERRARI has appointed 48 official dealers for the brand worldwide as Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops with nine based in the UK.
They are individually known as ‘Officina’ – Italian for ‘workshop’ – authorising the dealer to implement the Ferrari Classiche certification process and ensuring the correct maintenance or repair of Ferrari cars over 20 years old.
In the UK, Dick Lovett (Swindon), Graypaul (Nottingham), H.R. Owen (London), JCT600 (Brooklands), Joe Macari Servicing (Wandsworth), Lancaster (Colchester), Maranello Service Centre (Egham), Meridien Modena (Lyndhurst) and Stratstone (Manchester) have been nominated as Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops.
Each Ferrari Classiche Officina will have the direct support of the Ferrari Classiche department at the factory in Maranello. Ferrari has specified that in return they 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.
A Ferrari Classiche Officina offers a highly qualified service to the customer, ensuring the maintenance of the vehicle’s value through the start of the Ferrari Classiche Certification process, safeguarding the technical heritage of the Ferrari brand and, therefore, the client’s investment in its Ferrari Classiche car and certification.
However, 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 programme will continue to develop in the future with the nomination of more dealers as recognised Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops in other markets.
