Shockingly, Ferrari has never set up shop in the gilded South Bay. That changed last week, when they opened a beautiful, two-story, dealership and service center on Hawthorne Boulevard in Torrance.
A display of classic sports cars filled the showroom, including a 1962 250 PF Cabriolet, a 1963 250 GT Lusso, and the modern California T. Important people like Torrance mayor Patrick Furey and Giacomo Mattioli of the Mattioli Automotive Group (“North America’s premiere Ferrari dealership group”) were there for the ribbon-cutting, which also included members of the Scuderia Corsa racing team.
“The South Bay is a natural fit for a brand like Ferrari, as the coastal communities have always attracted affluent clients,” Mattioli said in a statement. “We have a substantial number of clients in the Beach Cities area, and wanted to better serve them with an all-new dealership that befits the iconic Ferrari brand.”
Ferrari is also a big fan of Beverly Hills, where they already operate a dealership. Van Nuys is reportedly getting one soon. The cars sold at Ferrari dealerships average about $260K.
