The numero uno in Ferrari restoration

  • • In 2018 Carlo received the Maestro d'Arte e Mestiere (MAM) prize
  • • His craftsmen may work on ten different Ferrari models
  • • The restoration of a vintage Ferrari takes at least two years

Patience is the first quality one needs when seeking Carlo Bonini’s expertise. A lot of patience, because the waiting list is over five years long. “There’s a Ferrari in my garage that has been parked here for ten years. Every so often, the owner calls me up to ask me ‘Bonini, is my turn coming up?’” says 72-year-old Bonini with a laugh. Just as unbelievable as the waiting times is the fact that his clients wait without complaining, because they are aware that there is no one else in the world like Bonini. When it comes to the restoration and maintenance of a Ferrari, he is the absolute number one, thanks to his fifty years of experience and the fact that, since the end of the 1980s, he has worked exclusively on Maranello’s famous red cars.
