Milan, Italy - Ferrari announced on Thursday that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with two Chinese companies to build a theme park in China.

The non-binding deal with Beijing Automotive and Biac Eternaland Property will, if implemented, see the two Chinese companies licensed to establish the park in a still-to-be-decided Chinese city.

The luxury sports car maker and F1 powerhouse already has a theme park on an island near Abu Dhabi and is in the process of constructing another one in Spain.

Luxury brand, luxury park
