WINDHOEK, Namibia - Ferrari will return to Namibia in June for the 2014 Namibian Tourism Expo at the Windhoek showground.

Two Ferraris will be on show at the expo for the first time from June 4-7. A service clinic will be available for Ferrari owners in the region.

Viglietti Motors CEO Mervyn Eagles explained: "Our 2013 visit to Namibia was exceptionally valuable for the brand. Not only did our clients enjoy fun in the sun at the country's first exclusive Ferrari test drive event but we also opened new doors into an important emerging market."


Eagles added: “This is in keeping with our African expansion plans. We have recognised a new breed of super sports-car enthusiasts in the region and demand for Ferrari vehicles is ever-rising.
"We are proud to be visiting Namibia again for yet another sensational event."

The automaker is planning a street parade of Ferrari models, among them a 458 Spider, 458 Italia, FF and F12 Berlinetta. Afterwards selected guests will be taken on a Ferrari road trip - a journey to the coast at Swakopmund in an exclusive test drive with sponsored fuel stops.

Eagles said: "In 2013 our Namibian clients, indeed all Ferrari fans, gave us the warmest reception. We expect a heightened sense of Ferrari enthusiasm as we embark on what can only be described as an astoundingly exciting experience in one of the most beautiful places on Earth."
