When you think of Ferrari, you probably think of the color red, a black horse, and stunning exotic cars reserved for the most affluent lovers of driving...and you’d be right. Ferrari has a long history of both race cars and production cars that push the limits of performance and are styled to be some of the most eye-catching cars on the road and on the track. The brand’s current offerings include the thrilling 488, the very appropriately named 812 Superfast, and the GTC4Lusso which actually has a back seat making it the practical family Ferrari. Every Ferrari delivers an unforgettable driving experience that you would expect from the brand’s well-earned reputation of exotic performance.

The inspection involves no less than 101 different checks covering everything from the running gear to the electrical systems, bodywork and interior. It concludes with a test drive by a factory trained technician.
Any issues that emerge will be repaired using Ferrari parts only. Once a car has passed the technical inspection, a written evaluation is drawn up and will be presented to any potential new owner.

Running gear function tests
