After an expansion of the Ferrari Classiche division in Italy, the exotic car maker is now considering further growth of its classic car workshop, with the U.S. as a front-runner for a second facility.
“We are … considering opening a subsidiary in the United States,” said company boss Luca di Montezemolo in a recent interview, “probably in California.”
Restoration of classic Ferraris is becoming a larger part of the company business and based on current and past sales the U.S. makes the most sense.
“The U.S. is our largest market not only in terms of annual sales but also when it comes to the total number of Ferrari models on the road,” said di Montezemolo. While larger projects would have to be carried out in Italy, “For some minor restorations, a workshop in California would save the significant cost of shipping the car back and forth to Maranello.
The Ferrari Classiche workshop restores past Ferrari models to their original showroom condition and certifies its work to not only guarantee quality, but also authenticity.
