The Technical Inspection

Before any car can be considered Ferrari Approved, first it must undergo a stringent series of factory-defined technical and condition inspections that encompass every aspect of what is at the heart of the Ferrari ownership experience.

This comprehensive and detailed examination by Ferrari S.p.A. is conducted by factory trained technicians, skilled in the assessment of Ferraris of all ages and histories.

This multi-point inspection includes 190 individual mechanical, electrical, bodywork and interior checks, with a full road test in expert hands. Any defective item is repaired or replaced, using only Ferrari Genuine parts, to ensure that a car fully meets Ferrari's standards for safety, performance and reliability.

Once the Technical Inspection has been completed and passed without doubt or reservation, a written evaluation is prepared that is presented to the future owner for review and discussion.
