Autostrada Motore, the exclusive importer and distributor of Ferrari and Maserati in the Philippines, has officially opened doors of its showroom and factory-certified service center on 32nd & 4th Crescent Park West, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
"We are very excited that our plan to open a Ferrari and Maserati dealership has finally come to fruition. It has been a challenging task to bring two premium supercar brands here but it is worth it. In a way, we have finally arrived," said Autostrada Motore chairman and president, Wellington Soong. "As the official dealership for the Ferrari and Maserati, we are aligned with the new corporate identity, which reflects passion, technical excellence and unique style of the brands. As part of a worldwide network of Ferrari and Maserati dealerships, Autostrada Motore ensures customers that they will receive only top-of-the-line customer service to match the legendary performance, technology, and style of their cars.”
To mark the occasion, Autostrada Motore unveiled two new models in the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale. This, however, is only the start as the dealership will actually market the entire lineup of both brands.
"We have to carry Ferrari's entire lineup," said Marc Soong, executive director of Ferrari for Autostrada Motore. "The market expects it so we'll give it to them, from the California to the FF to the newly-launched F12 Berlinetta."
For Maserati, the dealership will even stock on some models for customers who can't wait for their orders to be shipped from the Italian carmaker's factory in Modena, Italy, revealed Autostrada Motore's Maserati brand manager, Jasper Monteiro.
As to how much the vehicles could cost, the elder Soong would only say that, given the level of customization a customer would require from either one of the Italian brands, a unit would cost from P18 to P30 million. We dug around further and we found out that the barest 458 Italia that's devoid of any customization would ring the cash register at P23 million.
