More update on the Ferrari news

Well its not just Ferrari but Maserati and Alfa Romeo as well which are gonna hit the markets soon. And guess whos become the dealer for Ferrari and Maserati.. National Garage those whove serviced Contis and Ambys all these years. Fiat will handle the Alfa Romeo operations...

Maserati getting the Quattroporte??? hmm

Cheers

Yea, I read that too today! I think its crazy that National Garage got the dealership for Ferrari! IMO and from experience with our Astra, they provide the worst service I have expericenced, no, actually the Bajaj fellows take that award, but NG run them pretty close.

I'm sure Ferrari would have its exclusive showrooms, but I guess just seeing that NG name kinda puts me off. I ain't gonna buy a Ferrari from them!

(its besides the point that even if I sell my house, I wouldn't be able to afford 1 )

I am still wondering why Exclusive Motors could not manage a Ferrari dealership. They have already made the necessary investments and infrastructure required to support high-end automobiles. And opening up a brand new Ferrari dealership in Bombay would fit in wonderfully with their existing business model.

I do hope National Garage dont goof this up, coz their years of training with HM would have more "unlearning" than "learning" the fundementals of customer service.

GTO,
I think exclusive motors have invested tons in Bentley and Porsche, So i guess at this time they'd first wanna make some money before investing more in some brand? its what i assume ...

But Im very excited maybe 3 years down the line you guys might see me fly in the car that will replace the 575 lol!!
Joking but not atchually joking

Hritik doesnt own a Ferrari. He owns an S Type Jaguar. He really isnt a car guy at all. Infact a friend of mine who knows Hritik personally told me the S Type has just done 4000 kms in the past three years that hes owned it

Cheers

Maybe alongside Optras, Taveras and Foresters. Though National Garage still services Ambys and Contis, I don't think it sells HM cars any more. It's all GM now. Fortpoint sells Ambys and Lancers.
The National Garage showroom is located in one of the best areas of Mumbai.
