Maranello – The Galleria Ferrari in Maranello has inaugurated a new display dedicated entirely to Ferrari Classiche, the department founded in 2006 to provide restoration and maintenance services, along with technical assistance and certificates of authenticity, for road cars over 20 years old, and all racing cars including F1 cars.

At present he is reconstructing the loom of a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT short wheelbase Berlinetta which is currently undergoing authenticity certification. This initiative helps illustrate the expertise of the Ferrari Classiche staff and the importance of the original documentation held in the archives, but also creates a unique opportunity for visitors of the Galleria in Maranello to see how such specialists work inside the factory.

Also on display is a 1967 Ferrari 350 Can- A m, a 1971 512 M and a 1954 750 Monza, one of the most prestigious sports cars from Maranello. Furthermore visitors can see a 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB4 engine and the fuel tank from a Ferrari 750 Monza. V isitors can also admire a number of original blueprints from the Ferrari Classiche technical-historical archive which contains all the designs of every model ever produced by the Prancing Horse.

Opened in 1990, the Galleria Ferrari is located near the factory and offers a significant collection of cars that represent the history of Ferrari, both on the road and on the track. A new wing was opened in 2004 increasing the total exhibition space to 2500 square metres, including a shop and a café. Visitors can admire aspects of Ferrari’s past and present through a wide variety of permanent and temporary exhibitions dedicated to various facets of the company’s history.
