With a new club, true Ferrari fans won’t miss the chance to own yet another prancing horse.
Ferrari is considering establishing an ultra-exclusive owners' club, members of which would have first refusal on any new limited edition models. These puppies sell out super-fast, a notable recent example being the SA Aperta: a convertible 599 GTB Fiorano. The car was first show in August last year and with a limited run of 80 examples it sold out just a month later. Clearly a few Ferrari aficionados missed out and have aired their frustration to the top dogs.
Ferrari CEO Luca Cordero di Montezemolo explained to Automotive News Europe that loyal Ferrari owners, who would be allowed entry in the proposed club, should get right of first refusal. "I do not want our faithful collectors to miss the opportunity to buy one of our special series," he said. The criteria for entry into Ferrari's elite club has yet to be established, but given only 300 people worldwide own at least five Ferraris, this could be a viable option.
