Ferrari/Maserati Repulse Bay Supercar Giants Open Showroom

[19/01/12] 

The new Ferrari and Maserati flagship showroom opened yesterday in Repulse Bay, climaxing with the Hong Kong launch of the new Ferrari 458 Spider. Italian supercars are the definitive boy’s toy – unless you happen to be Ted Bundy – and although it’s difficult to drive one harder than a Prius in this city, you still stop and stare when one roars past.

Spanning 19,000 square feet (including a large car storage space), the new facility holds eight supercars at a time, four from each respective marquee. It’s light and roomy – everything you’d expect from a top car showroom – and it’s right in front of The Repulse so you can buy a supercar then have some cocktails. Only problem is you’d need a car to get down there in the first place… and a designated driver to get you back.

Apart from seeing a lion dance louder than a Meatloaf performance, we were also introduced to Ferrari’s new 458 Spider. Her hood closes in 14s and thanks to her V8 engine she accelerates from 0-100km/h in under 3.4s which is staggering when you think about it. It takes four times longer to close her roof than reach 100km/h. Priorities in the right place. Priced at HK$4,398,000, Ferrari’s first mid-engined hard-top convertible can hit a top speed of 320km/h which confirms she's saucier than a direct hit on a Heinz factory.

Italian stallions.
