Ferrari has launched its Premium Programme in South Africa, an after-sales agreement that gives owners of Ferrari cars that are between 10 and 20 years old extra peace of mind.
This is assured through a three-stage maintenance programme containing:
- Preventative Ferrari maintenance
- Scheduled yearly service
- Completion of outstanding product campaigns
The list of eligible cars in South Africa includes all variants of the Ferrari F430, the Ferrari 588 GTB/GTO, and the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.
This initiative is aimed specifically at providing a maintenance plan to models that are out of their standard seven-year warranty, but are not yet old enough to be accepted into the exclusive Ferrari Classiche Programme.
Ferrari also provides an extended warranty for up to 15 years.
What it includes
The Premium Programme ensures that the car lives up to Ferrari standards by bringing its services up to date and inspecting critical parts to see if they need replacement.
This involves checking the fuel and induction system, the exhaust system, the steering system, and the braking system.
Benefits of the Premium Programme include optimal vehicle performance, guaranteed reliability above non-enrolled cars, maintained vehicle safety, and enhanced residual value, said Ferrari.
“For Ferrari models older than 20 years, Ferrari offers an exclusive programme to certify your model as a Ferrari Classiche,” said Ferrari South Africa.
“A Classiche certification has to do with the restoration of the bodywork and interior of the vehicle.”
The service is provided to keep the parts and bodywork of your vintage vehicle in mint condition.
You receive a Ferrari Classiche certificate of authenticity, too, which goes a long way on the pre-owned market.
“The restorations are done at Ferrari Headquarters [Maranello, Italy] and can locally be performed at the official Ferrari Panel Shop, Carrozzeria.”
