Charles Hurst Belfast, the only official Ferrari dealership on the island of Ireland, has been awarded the title of Ferrari Classiche Officina.

As an ‘Officina’, or ‘Workshop’ location, Charles Hurst Ferrari and its customer base throughout Ireland can benefit from the direct support of the Ferrari workshop in Maranello, Italy, for vehicles over 20 years old.

There are only 49 confirmed ‘Ferrari Classiche Authorised Workshops’ worldwide, each committing to maintain a dedicated workshop ramp and a fully-qualified and trained technician exclusively for the maintenance, repair and certification of Ferrari classic cars.

Each nominated Ferrari Classiche Officina is authorised to implement the Ferrari Classiche certification process, ensuring the maintenance of the vehicle’s value and further safeguarding the technical heritage of the Ferrari brand.

Charles Hurst’s Aftersales Director, Andrew Gilmore, said: “To be recognised as a Classiche Officina by Ferrari is testament to our ongoing commitment to the marque, its heritage and all our clients who have invested in the world’s best driving experience.

This honour distinguishes the hard work of the whole Charles Hurst Ferrari team, from Aftersales through to Maintenance, and ensures these classic supercars continue to receive the treatment they deserve.”

Charles Hurst, part of Lookers plc, represents 20 automotive brands across seven sites, including the largest automotive park in Europe at its 20-acre Belfast base.
