Maranello, 30 April – Tomorrow Ferrari.com will speak Chinese. In occasion of the opening of the Expò of Shanghai Ferrari for the first time in its history is launching a Chinese version of its official site. This will be the fourth language that visitors can choose from.

The website is dedicated specifically to its clients, enthusiasts and fans whose native language is Chinese, not only in China, in Asia but all over the world. It aims to foster an even closer relationship between the Prancing Horse and the Chinese public, and boost the number of Ferrari web users in China by eliminating any language barriers.
Enthusiasts, clients and fans can navigate the site content, enjoy live news updates from Maranello and experience Prancing Horse emotions, activities and products at close hand. They’ll discover interactive areas, exclusive images, complete information on all the cars, the F1 Scuderia, News, Community and the Ferrari Store.

The site also allows users to select and personalize the cars in the current range.
