The Ferrari Genuine Maintenance will cover all new models for 7-years of service without a mileage limit
Ferrari is taking a bold step amongst luxury automakers and is now offering a 7-year unlimited mileage service program for all new Ferrari models.

The Ferrari Genuine Maintenance program includes the current lineup of the 458 Italia, the California and the FF models.

The program was designed to service vehicles about once a year but customers who reach the 20,000 km (12,500 miles) intervals earlier will still get their vehicles serviced. There is no mileage limit on the 7-year coverage.

This kind of service is unique amongst luxury automakers and could signal a new competitive realm amongst supercar makers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Rebodied Viper = Zagato TZ3 Stradale Today Zagato released details of their TZ3 Stradale to celebrate the late Alfa Romeo Centennial. Its style is a fitting tribute to the legendary Alfa Romeo Giulia TZ2 of 1965 and maybe the Alfa Romeo T33/2 Stradale made two years later.

Surprisingly, unlike the Corsa version that came before it, the Stradale is essentially a rebodied Dodge Viper ACR. This begs the question: what besides the badges warrants the Alfa Romeo nameplate? It's these sticky situations which Ferrari has tried to avoid by banning any and all restyled cars except their own.

The classic TZ nameplate is an essential part of Alfa Romeo history: The Giulia TZ of 1963 took advantage of Zagato's lightweight aluminum bodies with ‘Codatronca’ bodywork from the Giulietta SZ. The ultimate version is the Giulia TZ2 which many people describe as a mini Ferrari GTO.
