What’s this? A Ferrari Bus?

Well no, not exactly!

Pictured outside the impressive Ferrari Museum at Maranello, Italy was this Iveco Daily midi-coach, which along with the Iveco Intercity bus is used to ferry visitors from this spectacular and fascinating venue known as the ‘Home of the Dream’ to exclusive shuttle bus tours to the Fiorano track and along the Viale Enzo Ferrari boulevard in the factory complex.

A museum guide will also discuss the various characteristics of the Ferrari track where the Prancing Horse has carried out all its competition and road car tests since 1972. Likewise the Ferrari Campus, the heart of the complex where all the Prancing Horse cars are built. The buildings and facilities designed by world-leading architects of the likes of Renzo Piano, Massimiliano Fuksas, Jean Nouvelle, Marco Visconti and Luigi Sturchio are also fascinating. Equally interesting is the historic part of the factory which has been meticulously preserved, not least the factory entrance which dates back to 1947.
Visitors must remain on the bus at all times throughout the tour, and both photography and videoing are prohibited.
