Ferrari Maserati of Ontario

Ferrari Maserati Settles in Vaughan

A new monster location, but the same compassionate president.  

Remo Ferri, the president of Ferrari Maserati of Ontario, has had his dreams come true as Vaughan is now home to the largest Ferrari Maserati dealership in North America. The 90,000 sq. ft. building, located on Auto Park Circle in Woodbridge, houses both brands within individual showrooms and has 24 service bays, a 15-vehicle showroom and an underground parking area for over 100 vehicles, like the California model or the FXX model. Furthermore, it’s the first North American dealership to be designed by Ferrari. Its newest California model is sold exclusively as a folding hardtop convertible and is the first retractable hardtop to close in just 14 seconds. As for the real specifications, its V-8 engine generates 7,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and allows it to tear from zero to 100 kilometres in less than four seconds. Its price is estimated to be around $190,000 and its design has been received as a step away from traditional Ferrari form, making it accessible to a larger audience of car fanatics.

Nonetheless, the FXX model screams old-school Ferrari. Even without an emblem, it would be impossible to mistake it for anything else. Its streamlined front end and long rear end, which culminates in a vintage, box-shape fender package, makes it easily identifiable. Not that you’ll see one on the road, though; the super car is yet to gain legal street status and can only be driven on the racetrack.

For those looking for the rush of driving the F1-inspired FXX super car, Ferrari is looking for 20 or so loyal clients willing to buy the limited edition race car and test it out on the tracks. “Ferrari is a very emotional, exciting product, so when you drive a Ferrari it’s a passion, it’s a dream,” says Ferri.

But it’s not all about selling fast, expensive, pleasuring-seeking cars to wealthy enthusiasts for Remo; it’s also about using his success to help others in need, specifically children with a love for the prancing horse. Since 1998, he’s been running the Annual Ferrari Maserati of Ontario Rally for the SickKids Foundation and, since its inception, the charity event has raised over $1.6 million.
