The new Ferrari Approved programme from Ferrari GB Ltd will be a source of comfort to buyers considering a used Ferrari up to nine years old. While few would make such a purchase without expert advice, the thought of a 12-month warranty underwritten by Ferrari and an extremely comprehensive, 190-point technical inspection devised by the manufacturer itself, takes peace of mind to another level.
The programme only applies to unmodified cars which have covered less than 56,000 miles and, since fewer than 900 used Ferraris are sold through the official UK Ferrari dealer network each year, Ferrari Approved customers are occupying a fairly exclusive slice of the market. The aim is to “offer similar standards of vehicle preparation for customers buying a pre-owned Ferrari as those buying a new one”.
Cars available via the programme include V8 models from 360 Modena to F430 Spider, and V12 models from 550 Maranello to 612 Scaglietti and 599 GTB Fiorano.
