I watched a TV program just a few months ago describing the life of the Ferrari automobile. The last part of the program dealt with modern day Ferrari and had quite a bit of footage at the Maranello plant. To my surprise and delight, a part of the tour showed the Ferrari paint booth. Hung high on adjoining walls were banners of Ferrari and Maserati, AND a Maserati Coupe was being pushed out of the paint booth! Unless Maserati has taken to painting their own vehicles in the past couple of years, I would say that Masers are still painted at the Ferrari manufacturing plant. Also, in the Engine build area of the plant, AGAIN hung wall banners of both Ferrari and Maserati, however, I could not tell from the engines in the work area which were which. Just FYI.
Here's something I found doing a search "Life Inside the Ferrari Factory" but, may not be it....
Ultimate Factory Ferrari by National GeographicCarmine, I'd love to see that or try and find it, do you remember what show it was by chance?
You are not alone - I also noticed the "orange peel" effect in GT paintwork. I was at a car show last year and noticed it was the same on the latest BMWs - so is this part of a particular painting process or what?Something I noticed. The GT has way more orange peel in the paint. I realize I may be the only person on the planet who notices these things.
