Prancing horse revisits Namibia for ultimate Ferrari experience
Windhoek, 12 May 2014. Viglietti Motors, in collaboration with Ferrari international partner Shell, will be revisiting Namibia with the Ferrari brand in June 2014, after a successful outing in 2013 warranted more attention from the iconic Italian marque on Namibian soil.
“Our visit to Namibia last year proved exceptionally valuable for the Ferrari brand,” comments Viglietti Motors CEO, Mervyn Eagles. “Not only did our clientele enjoy fun in the sun at the country’s first exclusive Ferrari test drive event, but we opened new doors into an important emerging market for the Ferrari brand on an international level. This is in keeping with our expansion plans into Africa.”
“We have recognised a new breed of super sports car enthusiasts in the region and demand for Ferrari vehicles is ever rising. We are only too proud to be visiting Namibia again and for yet another sensational event.”
Centred around the 16th Annual Namibian Tourism Expo which takes place at the Windhoek show grounds from 4-7 June, two Ferrari vehicles will be on show at the expo for the very first time. A service clinic will be available to existing Ferrari owners in the region.
In addition, a street parade is also on the agenda, with various Ferrari vehicles making their way through the streets of Windhoek – including the likes of the Ferrari 458 Spider, 458 Italia, FF, and the awe-inspiring F12 berlinetta.
After the parade, selected Ferrari guests will embark on the ultimate Ferrari road trip, embarking on a journey to the coast towards Swakopmund in an exclusive test drive experience, designed to exploit both the majestic Ferrari vehicles on offer, as well as a host of incredible Namibian experiences. Sponsored fuel stops along the route will be performed at selected Shell service stations.
Concludes Eagles: “Our Namibian clientele and indeed all Ferrari fans gave us the warmest reception last year, and we expect a heightened sense of Ferrari enthusiasm as we embark on what can only be described as an astoundingly exciting experience in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.”
