After assembly, each car is tested at 160 km/h on the roller test bench to ensure the ABS, brakes, transmission and clutch are in good working order. Then it must be subjected to the water test at 3,000 liters per minute. And that’s not all. Each car is then checked by being test driven 40-50 kilometers in the city, on the highway or on the race track. “During the test drive, each car must be able to reach 288 km/h. The test driver must feel the car,” explains the former head of sales Giorgio Manicardi with pride: “Lastly, the car goes to the final fine-tuning area where employees spend three hours treating it and eliminating even the smallest quirks and defects. We have the best “beauty farm” in the world and only women perform this last quality control step!”
And if that is not enough, the car is checked one last time by an external company that then bears the final responsibility.
