Ferrari Approved is a pre-owned certification program designed to guarantee maximum security and peace of mind to owners purchasing Ferraris registered within the last 14 years.
Owning a new or preowned Ferrari is the realisation of a dream. It is an expression of passion for a brand that represents motoring history. Ferrari Approved cars are always monitored and in perfect condition. In fact, the programme comprises a series of wide-ranging checks and several guarantees:
- Detailed technical inspection by Ferrari technicians at Scuderia South Africa Cape Town
- Verification of origin and maintenance history
- Presale preparation of the exterior and interior
- Ferrari guarantee of up to 24 months
- Ferrari roadside assistance of up to 24 months
Ferrari Approved submits every used Ferrari to a series of checks approved by the Parent Company, carried out at any official dealer, the first point of contact and reference for the customer.
Highly skilled Ferrari technicians specially trained at Maranello perform the operations.
One hundred and ninety individual checks are carried out before a used Ferrari can receive the Approved “licence”. The methods and benefits of the Ferrari Approved programme may vary in some countries. For full details, contact us or visit Scuderia South Africa Cape Town.
The list of main operations testifies to a detailed examination:
- Mechanical operation test
- Test on the operation of the Electrical system
- Liquid levels check
- Examination of the state of the suspension, brakes, cooling system and steering system
- Secondary checks on air conditioning, dashboard and safety systems
- Operation of lights, wheels and tyres (tread depth and pressure)
All this takes place in compliance with Ferrari standards of safety, performance, and reliability. Following the checks, experienced testers try out the car and the new owner receives a written analysis with a list of the checks performed.
The history of Ferrari Approved models is transparent. Every item of information is verified, to check originality, mileage, and changes of ownership.
We also confirm the performance of the scheduled maintenance activities recommended by the Company.
