Our rare look inside three of Ferrari's most exclusive facilities

After making the trip to Maranello, Italy to check out Ferrari's new Jean Nouvel-designed production facility and restaurant a year ago, we were lucky enough to be invited back for this year's World Design Contest in July 2011.


This time we toured the amazing V8 production line again, but also had the rare privilege of seeing many of the standout cars in Ferrari's extensive vintage collection, as well as getting an exclusive glimpse inside the FXX, Forumula 1 Clienti, and Classiche garages.


The FXX garage houses and maintains a few dozen independently-owned Ferrari FXXs, the $1.8 million non-street-legal versions of the Enzo. These superior limited production cars are significantly modified specifically for racing. Storing your FXX here gives you access to Ferrari's private track—so private we weren't even allowed to photograph it.

Every year Ferrari produces between three and six Formula One race cars. At the end of the season, Ferrari keeps one, putting the rest up for sale to private clients. Like for owners of the FXX, with the Formula One Clienti garage you get storage, maintenance and access to the track—providing you have the funds of course.


For the classic car connoisseur, Ferrari also offers complete factory renovation and restoration assistance in their Classiche garage. Here the brilliant craftspeople will restore your vintage Ferrari to its former glory. Every little detail is remanufactured to its original specs in order to receive a proper Ferrari seal of authenticity.
