There were many sponsors that made this event such a success, including Ferrari Beverly Hills and our sister dealers, Ferrari South Bay and Ferrari Westlake, as well Collezione by MAG. To show our passion and support, we combined our efforts to create a grand display and Ferrari Boutique for all to enjoy. On display we had a tastefully configured Ferrari 488 GTB presented in Rosso Mugello over nero, a stunning 488 Spider in Giallo over black, a Blue Tour de France GTC4Lusso, and a black GTC4Lusso T over a black interior with sporty red accents. Collezione By Mag, our division specializing in advising, sourcing and representing the finest Ferraris in the marketplace, presented a meticulously restored 1962 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet Series II by Pininfarina.
All in all, it was a great showing of Ferraris and a wonderful opportunity to connect with our fellow Ferraris.
Till Next Year, Forza Ferrari!
