Maranello, 9 April 2014 – Ferrari announces yet another first for an automotive manufacturer:  extended warranty cover that offers peace of mind for owners of Ferraris up to the 12th year of the vehicle’s life*.

The warranty scheme is divided into two programmes:

  • Extension of Manufacturer’s Warranty. Ferrari now offers the possibility of extending the all-inclusive factory-backed warranty by up to two years for a total of five years of cover
  • New Power Warranty. Ferrari has extended the existing level of factory-backed cover up until the 12th year from first registration. Not only is the scheme the most flexible of its kind, but it is also the most complete.

Renewable annually, the New Power Warranty can, subsequent to technical verifications, be applied to cars that have not been covered by previous warranty extensions provided by Ferrari.

Special conditions are also available for clients renewing the New Power programme:

  • a 15 per cent renewal incentive year-on-year
  • an additional 15 per cent incentive if no warranty work was carried out the previous year.

How the New Power scheme works:

ACTIVATION YEAR 1-3 4-5 6-12

Ferrari’s New Power programme is just the latest addition to a complete range of aftersales services which are the most comprehensive of any currently on the market. Along with the manufacturer three-year** warranty, all new Ferraris come with a free, seven-year Genuine Maintenance programme designed to ensure that cars are serviced to the highest standards and maintain their value over time.

*Extended service cover will be available in North America from the 1st of May 2014

**Standard manufacturer warranty periods may differ from market to market

Sydney, 10 April –The first ever Ferrari Racing Days to be staged in Australia gets underway tomorrow at the Eastern Creek circuit on the outskirts of Sydney. The event is a pretty much an Olympic games of Ferrari Corse Clienti programmes and promises action packed entertainment with the exclusivity that is the hallmark of the world of Ferrari.

The main attraction is round 2 of the Ferrari Challenge Asia-Pacific and in addition there will be demonstrations of the cars in the XX Programmes, as well as old privately owned Formula 1 cars. There is plenty more to see with over 300 privately owned Ferraris on site as well as the jewel in the crown, a LaFerrari, on show for the first time in the Antipodes.

The second round of the Asia-Pacific Ferrari Challenge marks the debut of the series on Australian soil. It’s the fourth year the championship has been run, this year using the 458 Evo and in the Trofeo Pirelli category, Steve Wyatt is the leader, while David Tjiptobiantoro heads the Coppa Shell. But it’s very close and anything could happen in the always exciting Challenge races.

Eagerly anticipated is the Formula 1 action, when Scuderia Ferrari test driver Marc Gene will put on a thrilling show for the crowd featuring burnouts, doughnuts, pit stops and high speed laps. Marc will be at the wheel of an F10 and although he didn’t want to speculate, is probably keen on having a crack at the track record, currently held by a Red Bull RB7 when driven by local hero Daniel Ricciardo. Apart from Gene, six other Formula 1 owners will b e on track, two F2007 – one which won the title with Kimi Raikkonen, the other driven by Felipe Massa – two 412 T1, the car Gerhard Berger used to win the 1994 German Grand Prix and two F156/85, as driven by Michele Alboreto and Stefan Johansson. Also taking part, another important car in Ferrari’s history, the 333 SP. It’s the “barchetta” that Ferrari provided for customers in 1994 and which enjoyed great success to the end of the Nineties. Between 1995 and 2001 this car took 69 poles, 64 wins (56 outright and 8 in class) including winning the Sebring 12 Hours, a Daytona 24 Hours and an LMP-1 class win in the Le Mans 24 Hours. As for the XX programme cars, there will be a total of six made up of FXX and 599XX, true jewels which are bound to get the crowds in the grandstands excited with the wonderful noise of the Maranello engines. Apart from the on-track activity, there’s plenty for the fans and families to enjoy, including a unique collection of never before seen Ferraris. The waiting is over and Eastern Creek is ready to welcome the thousands of fans who want to get a feel for the excitement of the exclusive world of Ferrari.


Record bonus awarded to Ferrari employees

Maranello, 8 April 2014 – Ferrari has announced that its production bonus for employees for 2013 will amount to 4,096 euro, the highest ever awarded in the company’s history.

The production bonus is in recognition of the excellent financial results achieved last year, not least of which were record profits, in addition to other parameters, such as levels of quality.

This means that, on top of the two advances of 1,000 euro each already received, Ferrari employees will find an extra 2,096 euro in their pay packets this month. For a young employee hired recently, this equates to an extra 20 per cent of his or her annual salary.

This bonus, the result of an agreement signed with the unions in 2012, is linked to a grid of operational values with the objective of sharing the company’s success.

Last year, as well as the production bonus, an additional three-yearly bonus was paid out and Chairman Luca di Montezemolo has announced its extension for a further three years.

In 2013 Ferrari adopted a strategy to reduce production  to under 7000 cars a year to preserve their exclusivity and value over time, and this strategy will continue this year and into 2015. Last year revenues increased by 5 per cent  and trading profits rose by 8.3 per cent. These are unprecedented figures, as is the net financial position which, at the end of 2013, stood at an all-time high.

The initiative, launched by the Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, has summoned some well-known artists to reinterpret the concept of car on canvas. The public has also been invited to share pictures of their visit on Twitter via the hashtag #FerrariCaliforniaTDubai.

Wiesbaden, April 7 – On Friday 400 enthusiastic guests from all over Germany celebrated the latest model from Maranello, the Ferrari California T, at the national premiere in the heart of Frankfurt. Amidst the skyscrapers of the local financial institutions, the California T was presented in a special ambience that fascinated everyone present.

“Germany is the most important market in Europe for Ferrari, not only in terms of sales figures and history, but above all because of the clients – true sports car enthusiasts with very high expectations – who are very loyal to our brand,” said Francesco Bianchi, Head of the Europe, Middle East and Africa Region of Ferrari S.p.A in his opening speech.

The new Ferrari California T is the epitome of elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity – characteristics that marked each California model since the 1950s. The new 3855 cc 8-cylinder turbocharged direct-injection engine produces 560 hp at 7500 rpm a maximum torque of 750 Nm at 4750 rpm. With 49 % more torque and 15 % lower consumption*, the California T is a perfect combination of performance and efficiency. The sprint from 0-100 km/h is accomplished in 3.6 seconds with no turbo lag and with the typical Ferrari engine sound. Its steering is more precise and the ride even more dynamic, guaranteeing maximum driving pleasure in all driving situations.

The new California can be ordered from the official German dealer network now at a list price of € 183,499 €.

* The reduction in consumption is calculated on a driving cycle that realistically reproduces a clients’ use of the car

All the cars entered for the 23rd Tour Auto Optic 2ooo were again on display under the majestic dome of the Grand Palais, and a large crowd of Parisians turned up to have a look. The 10 000 spectators were able to admire the beauty of the impeccably-prepared 237 cars present with large contingents from Mini, BMW and Ferrari including the famous one-off Breadvan, as well as  other makes that raced in the Tour de France Automobile between 1951 and 1973.The first day, which began at 10h00 this morning, was devoted to scrutineering and administrative checks for the entrants: it was also the theatre of various press conferences. The Tour’s faithful partner Optic 2ooo was the first to welcome the journalists. Motor car partner BMW i then took up the running to present the i8, which will cover the whole Tour Auto itinerary giving its first real live demonstration. The glass brand and Alain Figaret – the official clothing supplier – also presented the 2013 winners in the various categories with their prizes: the official Tour Auto glasses and the Trophy jacket. Patrick Peter described the 2013 route of the event he has been organising since 1992. Hublot, the official time keeper, unveiled the Classic Fusion Chrono Tour Auto 2014 watch, a limited edition of only 100 pieces. Finally, Ferrari closed the festivities with the first presentation in France of the California T.The first day in the Grand Palais ended with the traditional Tour Auto 2ooo Soirée. A not-to-be missed gathering during which entrants, partners and personalities rubbed shoulders. This year Olivier Panis, Eric Comas, Gérard Larrousse, Jürgen Barth, Armin Schwarz, Hugues Aufray, Jean-Luc Lahaye, Gaspard Ulliel, Michel Rostang, Gérard Holtz, Grégory Galiffi, Arséne Jiroyan, Alexande Brasseur and company were all present.

Tomorrow morning Tuesday 8th April all the drivers will leave the magnificent setting of the Grand Palais at 06h00 direction the Château Vaux Le-Vicomte where the official start of the rally will be given at 07h30. The day’s programme includes a special stage on closed roads and another on the Dijon Prénois circuit for the whole field after which the entrants will head for the first leg town (Dijon).

Paris, 7th April 2014 – What better setting than the Grand Palais in Paris for the California T, Ferrari’s latest creation, to make its debut on French soil?

The California T was to be the star attraction at a gala cocktail in the evening for over four hundred guests who thus had the opportunity see this superb example of elegance, sportiness, versatility and exclusivity for themselves.

Weather: air temperature 27/34°C, track temperature 31/44 °C. Sunny.

Best time: 1:37.912

Once again, Fernando Alonso took to the Sakhir track at the wheel of the F14 T for the second and final day of this in-season test at the Bahraini circuit.

On the job list for today was a series of set-up tests, carried out based on data from yesterday. Unfortunately, testing had to be called to a halt when the chassis was found to be damaged.

After the necessary checks were made, the team decided to bring the test to a premature end as a precautionary measure.

The next time the cars will be on track will be Friday 18 April in free practice for the Chinese Grand Prix.

Fernando Alonso was back behind the wheel of the F14 T at the Sakhir circuit today at the start of the first of four in-season tests, reintroduced this year after a two year break.

In the morning, the team concentrated on fine tuning various electronic configurations and on taking aerodynamic measurements with constant speed runs down the main straight. In the afternoon, work was carried out in short runs, lapping to evaluate different set-up choices.

Alonso will again be on track tomorrow, as Scuderia Ferrari tackles the second and final day of this test.

Sakhir, 8 April – This morning at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit, the fourth Fomula 1 test of the year got underway, marking the return of in-season testing. Scuderia Ferrari is taking part with Fernando Alonso looking after the driving duties, having stayed working with the team since last Sunday’s Grand Prix.

He spent yesterday with the engineers, going over the F14 T’s development programme for this session in the smallest detail. It’s hotter than last week, with not too much wind in the desert location.

Before the lunch break, Alonso had done 31 laps on Medium tyres, with a best time of 1.37.375. The Scuderia started off checking some aero measurements before moving on to set-up work on the mechanical front, aimed at improving the balance of the car, especially at the entry and exit of the corners.

Sakhir, 7 April – Scuderia Ferrari, just like the other ten Formula 1 teams, hasn’t left Bahrain after yesterday’s race as tomorrow the F14 T will be running again in the fourth test session of the year.

Previous test sessions were held before the start of the championship on the Spanish track of Jerez de la Frontera (one) and here in Sakhir (two), whilst tomorrow’s sesion kick starts the comeback of in-season testing.

The two-day test will be the first of four that will be organized throughout the course of the season, a reintroduction strongly wanted by Ferrari which has always believed that no computer simulation can be more effective than the response gained on track.

Driving for Scuderia Ferrari will be Fernando Alonso, who will try to help the team make the much needed improvements that Stefano Domenicali has strongly requested. Fernando will face a particularly intense programme, with work focused on adressing certain areas of weakness of the car while continuing to develop the stronger points that have been demonstrated so far.


Italian Greats swell the ranks of incredible entry list for RM’s multi-million Monaco sale

  • RM Auctions announces further premier offerings for its Monaco sale, occurring 10th May during the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique weekend
  • Recent highlights include a spectacular series of Ferraris including a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C, a 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina Cabriolet Series I, a 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS and a 2006 Ferrari 575 GTZ by Zagato
  • Sale also includes the hugely significant and historic 1956 Maserati 450S Prototype
  • Complete digital catalogue now available online at

LONDON (April 3, 2014) RM Auctions, the world’s largest collector car auction house for investment-quality automobiles, continues to attract incredible, historically significant cars to its forthcoming Monaco sale at Le Sporting on 10May. Staged during the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique weekend, the single-day sale will present a superb roster of more than 80 handpicked, blue-chip automobiles, including seven vehicles with pre-sale estimates in excess of €1.000.000.

 World-class Ferraris are never far from any RM sale and the upcoming Monaco event is no exception, featuring no less than 16 examples from the famed Italian marque. Amongst recent highlights is a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB/C with coachwork by Scaglietti. Chassis 09067 is the ninth of only twelve produced, and is arguably the finest and most original example of its kind as it boasts fully matching numbers and Ferrari Classiche certification. Unlike many 275 GTB/Cs, 09067 was not sold to a race team but rather delivered new to a private owner in Milan who registered it for road use. The car didn’t see track action until 1969, when its third owner competed in the Colle San Eusebio Hill Climb. It then passed onto its fourth owner in 1973, spending the next 22 years in the Netherlands. Most recently, the car has participated in various tours and rallies including the Tour Auto, but its infrequent period race history makes it very unusual and undoubtedly contributes to it being one of the most original and desirable 275 GTB/Cs in existence (Estimate: €4.300.000–€5.000.000).

RM is also delighted to announce that it will offer a very rare 1959 Ferrari 250 GT Pinin Farina Cabriolet Series I, chassis 1181 GT,in Monaco. It is the 36th of only 40 examples built as well as being the final factory covered-headlamp version. Connoisseurs will appreciate that 1181 GT is built on the later and much superior 508D chassis and the fact that it is both matching numbers and fully Ferrari Classiche certified. Completed on 12 March 1959, chassis 1181 GT was shipped to New York City for display on Ferrari’s stand at the third International Automobile Show prior to being delivered to Luigi Chinetti Jr. It was then sold in 1960 to preferred Ferrari customer William McKelvy, the famed principal of the Scuderia Bear team before passing onto Bob Grossman, the well-known New York-based dealer, Briggs Cunningham team driver, and two-time SCCA champion a year later. The Cabriolet was subsequently owned by a number of well-known collectors in North America before spending the last three years residing in the UK (Estimate: €4.000.0000–€5.000.000).

Max Girardo, Managing Director of RM Auctions, Europe, says: “Once again, we are proving to be the auction house of choice when it comes to selling historically significant Ferraris. We have an unrivalled reputation in the global market place and our Monaco sale never disappoints, with more than 80 fabulous pre- and post-war sports, touring and racing cars representing 37 different marques”.

Another significant entry sure to attract collectors of the Maranello marque is the matching-numbers 1967 Ferrari 330 GTS, chassis 10719. One of ninety-nine built, it was originally shipped to Luigi Chinetti Motors in Greenwich, Connecticut in early 1968, passing through the hands of various respected collectors in North America over the following decade. In 2006 the car benefited from a thorough restoration by Rudi Koniczek & Company, which brought it up to the most remarkably perfect condition in every respect. A testament to the outstanding quality of its restoration, 10719, presented in stunning Blu Scuro with a Claret and black leather interior and black cloth top, was shown at the 2011 Concorso Italiano in Monterey, California where it was awarded the Ferrari Club of America Pacific Region Vintage Concours Award and received Best of Show honours (Estimate: €1.500.0000–€1.800.000).

Not all rare Ferraris herald from the 1960s and the marque’s more recent design will be represented in Monaco by a 2006 Ferrari 575 GTZ with unique coachwork by Zagato. This immensely rare care is the brainchild of a Japanese collector, Yushiyuki Hayashi who commissioned Zagato to create a unique design using Ferrari’s 575 Maranello Berlinetta as a platform, taking his inspiration from the Zagato-bodied TdF models. It is surely one of the most recognisable coachbuilt creations of the early 21st century as Zagato produced only six examples, all of which carry unique body features specified by their first owners, leaving no two cars exactly alike. The 575 GTZ on offer is one of the most fascinating Ferrari cars of recent times, and presents a very rare opportunity for collectors seeking unique features and exclusivity (Estimate: €880.000–€1.050.000).

Of course, Ferrari isn’t the only Italian marque to have produced some of the world’s greatest sports and racing cars. Maserati was more than a match for the Maranello marque on both road and track during the 1950s and 1960s. Monaco will see RM offer the 1956 Maserati 450S Prototype, a truly historic racing car which lived two lives, originally as a six-cylinder Works racer, and later as the first incarnation of the eight-cylinder 450S. With beautiful yet purposeful coachwork by Fantuzzi, the example on offer competed as the Works entry at the 1956 Mille Miglia, driven by the legendary pairing of Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson. After the Mille Miglia, the car returned to the factory where it became the prototype for the new eight-cylinder 450S. Once acquired by the current owner, this historic Maserati was painstakingly restored in 1987 to its prototype specification, with significant advice and detailed consultation with the Factory. The Monaco sale represents the first time the car has been offered for sale in 33 years, presenting a very exclusive ownership opportunity (Estimate: €4.000.000–€5.500.000).

Monza, 6 April – In the second Trofeo Pirelli race at the Monza circuit, victory went to Daniele Di Amato, who was unbeatable driving his Motor Piacenza 458 Challenge Evo. The Roman driver was in total command of the situation after an early duel with Philipp Baron, then excluded by a puncture. Once he pulled away, Di Amato did a good job of controlling the race. Second was Dario Caso (Rossocorse-Pellin Racing) who overtook Stefano Gai on the last straight having been slowed by a puncture.

In the Pirelli Am battle, Sam Smeeth, driving for the Stratstone Ferrari team dominated the race. Behind him the was a great duel between the Motor Piacenza drivers Alexander Moiseev and Ezequiel Perez Companc. The battle was won, in the last lap, by the 20 year old Argentinian.

In top spot championship classification after two races is Stefano Gai, but he’s going to leave the series to concentrate on Endurance racing. So the real leader is Di Amato that leads over Dario Caso. In the Pirelli Am category, the leader after one weekend of racing is Perez Companc. The next round is at Mugello from 16 to 18 May.

Monza, 4 April – Giacomo Stratta and Jacques Duyver were fastest in free practice for the Ferrari Challenge Europe round at Monza, with Sunday’s racing being free to attend for spectators. Stratta was surprisingly fastest of the Trofeo Pirelli drivers in a very closely matched session. The Forza Service driver is in the Amateur category and so he should have been slower than the Pros. This year’s series uses the 458 Challenge Evo and Stratta used his to set a time of 1.51.194, on the fourth of his 12 laps. He was 124 thousandths faster than Stefano Gai, the Rossocorsa Pro and 442 thousandths faster than Austria’s Philip Baron in the Octane 126 car.

Fourth was Dario Caso (Pro, Rossocorsa Pellin Racing). Among the Am runners, an impressive sixth overall for British driver Sam Smeeth (Stratstone Ferrari) and eighth for the baby driver of the series, the 20 year old Argentinian Ezequiel Perez Companc (Motor Piacenza).

Testing took place in the morning and in the first session these two drivers had posted faster times than the one Stratta did to take first place in free practice. Philipp Baron stopped the clocks in 1.50.856 ahead of Gai’s 1.51.092. Qualifying is at 9.55 while Race 1 is at 14.50. More of the same on Sunday with qualifying and the race.

Quickest in the Coppa Shell, Englishman Jacques Duyver in his Stratstone Ferrari lapped in 1.52.306. It was an impressive half a second quicker than the German Dirk Adamski (Saggio Racing Team) and almost nine tenths ahead of Italy’s Massimiliano Bianchi for Kessel Racing. In the Coppa Gentlemen, the spotlight shone on the veteran Erich Prinoth who was fourth overall in the 458 Evo entered by the Ineco-MP Racing team, ahead of team-mate Thomas Gostner and Dutchman Fons Scheltema for Kessel Racing. Qualifying is tomorrow at 11.15 with the race at 16.45

Monza, 4 April – On a rain-free Monza track, free practice for the Ferrari Challenge are underway. The longest running series of the famous one-make championship has now reached its 22nd season and some of the drivers have been present at two thirds of them. Among them Italy’s Dario Caso (Rossocorsa-Pellin Racing) and the Czech Robert Pergl (Scuderia Praha,) both in their 14th season.

However, the most experienced of all is Eric Prinoth, from Bolzano, Italy, the son of Ernest, who even tried his hand at Formula 1 in the Sixties. Erich is starting his 15th season and he is entered by the Ineco-MP Racing team.

From the veterans we move on to the rookies, all eight of them. In the Trofeo Pirelli Italy’s David Gadrì (team Rossocorsa), the Czech Dusan Palcr (Scuderia Praha – Dino&Co), the Belgian Florian Merckx (Kessel Racing) and the Russians Vadim Gitlin (Kessel Racing) and Nikita Kalin (Motor Piacenza). In the Coppa Shell the newcomers are the Italian Luca Gelli (Rossocorsa), Germany’s Thomas Loefflad (StileF Squadra Corse) and the Swiss Peter Goerke (Kessel Racing).
When it comes to age, the oldest by far is the British driver Rupert Martin, racing his Motor Piacenza 458 in the Coppa Shell. The youngest is the Argentinian Ezequiel Perez Companc, in the Trofeo Pirelli, also with the Motor Piacenza squad.


Ferrari Challenge Europe underway in Monza this weekend

Maranello, 3 April –This weekend, Monza hosts the first round of this season’s Ferrari Challenge Europe, the longest running series of the famous one-make championship. There are no less than 44 cars – 27 in the Trofeo Pirelli and 17 in the Coppa Shell – entered for the races at the history track in the Lombardy region of Italy. There is bound to be plenty of the usual wheel to wheel action which has always characterized these races.

The FIA approved championship first took place in 1993 and is split between the Trofeo Pirelli with subcategories for Pro and Am drivers and the Coppa Shell, which includes a special Coppa Gentlemen for the over 55s. There are two races per category run over Saturday and Sunday. The races are short and spectacular and tactics have to make room for instinct, because 30 minutes is not really long enough for a convoluted strategy. There are seven rounds, all on really interesting tracks: following on Monza comes Mugello, then Brno, Portimao, Silverstone, Istanbul, before the Finali Mondiali in December in Abu Dhabi.

The North American and Asia-Pacific Ferrari Challenge series have already got underway for this year and they too end up in Abu Dhabi from 3 to 6 December. On that Saturday, once the individual titles for the three series have been decided, all the top competitors battle it out in a race to see who takes the title of World Champion.

This year, all the series run the 458 Challenge Evo, a car fitted with a new aerodynamic kit which boosts performance. Worthy of note is the rear wing, which is based on the one used in GT races and gives the cars much greater corner speed, promising even more excitement in the championships.
