UK Ferrari and Maserati distributor Maranello Sales has opened the world’s largest service centre for Ferrari and Maserati near Heathrow airport, west of London.

The 38-bay centre is the only authorised service point in the UK equipped to maintain the F40, F50 and the forthcoming Enzo model and is linked directly to the global parts supply operation of Ferrari UK and Maserati UK.

The Thorpe location is also home to a body repair facility which specially equipped to repair both aluminium and carbon fibre composite chassis and bodywork, as well as steel-bodied vehicles.

Maranello has invested over £1 million and recruited additional technicians (now 40) for the new centre which is three times larger than the Tower Garage facility it replaces.

The 38 work bays include 24 servicing bays, four PDI bays, five electronic bays, two special diagnostic bays, one general bay, and a dedicated tyre fitting zone plus two bays for road testers as well as a dedicated gearbox and transmission workshop.

The Thorpe centre also includes a computer-controlled fast-pick spare parts store, customer reception and service record administration zones, and catering facilities for the 64 staff.

“One of the motivations behind creating the new service centre is to respond better to the different needs of our customers,” a spokesman said. “Traditionally, many Ferrari owners have been happy to leave their cars with us for a day or two each side of the actual period required for the servicing work. Maserati owners tend to use their cars every day and expect a one-day turnaround for scheduled service work.”
