Ferrari’s history is rooted in the history of motor racing. It also reflects the history of the evolution of exceptional performance road cars, characterised by bold and unmistakable design and technical solutions derived from the racing world.
These cars, created in Ferrari’s Maranello workshops since 1947, are a perfect synthesis of technological research and craftsmanship that only the Prancing Horse can deliver. That is why they are destined to last over time.
Most of the cars produced from the dawn of the marque to today still exist and run, thanks to the care taken by their owners to keep them perfectly efficient and very safe on the roads. Such maintenance can only be performed by a highly skilled technician who has the deepest knowledge of the secrets of Ferrari engines and the specific features of each automobile.
In 2006 the company gave birth to Ferrari Classiche, the department of excellence that offers owners an exclusive service. Its purpose is to protect the invaluable heritage that these cars represent.
The Classiche team has the expertise necessary to handle complex restorations, returning a car to its original form in terms of mechanics and bodywork. Ferrari Classiche also provides the assistance and support needed to deal both with the complex stages of extraordinary maintenance and the normal use of the cars.
A Ferrari Classiche owner not only has the pleasure of driving a rare, or sometimes one-of-a-kind car, he also gains access to exclusive activities organised by the company designed to fit the specific type of car in his collection. This unique great passion is shared in the worldwide celebration of the anniversaries of the most iconic cars, in direct participation (or in support of) the most prestigious events of classic motoring such as the Le Mans Classic, Historic Grand Prix of Monaco, Mille Miglia and Targa Florio, in the organisation of dynamic events aimed at the use of the cars in extraordinary situations, and in elegant competitions put on by Ferrari and other organisations.
The essential starting point of the service offered by Ferrari Classiche is the Certificate of Authenticity, only available in Maranello.
The Certificate of Authenticity is for all Ferrari road cars over 20 years old and is also available for Ferrari F1, Sportscars and Sport-Prototypes, with no restrictions on the age of the car.
The integrity and absolute uniqueness of the Ferrari archives, where the technical records of all cars produced since 1947 are jealously guarded, means the company is able to unequivocally establish conformity with the original design of any car made in its workshops.
The full benefits of the Certificate of Authenticity are manifold: in addition to protecting the priceless heritage of an historic car, the Certificate increases sale value, while giving access to the most prestigious official events organised by the Prancing Horse.
This unique service is very important for owners, as only Ferrari Classiche can release an official document confirming the full authenticity of a car.
