Celebrating ten years in Taiwan with a new showroom
Taipei, April 13 – A double ceremony has been held by Ferrari in Taipei, marking the opening of the new Ferrari Flagship Service Center and Showroom, as well as celebrating the tenth anniversary of the brand’s arrival on the Taiwanese market. Presiding over the event was Finnish racing driver Kimi Raikkonen, who was welcomed to the five-storey building housing the dealership (Modena Motors Taiwan) with a round of rapturous applause from the large crowd, who had gathered in spite of the pouring rain. Kimi took part in the traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony, and met with the local press. Before getting back on the road to Shanghai, where the third race of the season is due to be held on Sunday, the Finn commented on the Taiwanese hospitality: “I never dreamed that I’d be so popular in the Far East, and I’m delighted with the reception I’ve had here today”.
