Ferrari invests in classic know-how
Ferrari has added a classic car module to its apprenticeship scheme to secure the skills necessary to maintain historic vehicles in the future.
This means that all new apprentices taken on from September this year will be trained to handle all the main service items for classic Ferraris, including ballast resistor ignition systems, magnetos, dynamos, twin point distributors, carburettors, mechanical fuel injection and straight-cut gearboxes.
A spokesman for Ferrari says: ‘If we don’t train our dealer network we won’t have the skills to look after our customers’ cars.
The dealer network already has access to classic parts ‘for any car built through our history’ and unique fuel injection and carburettor tooling.
Apprentices will get their hands dirty on engines such as this Testarossa flat 12.
