The company’s relationship with Ferrari dates back to more than 25 years ago with a showroom on Zabeel Road, and the new showroom reflects how the relationship has since evolved. The showroom has been established with the goal of helping Al Tayer Motors to deliver enhanced ownership experiences to its community of passionate Ferrari clients. It has been conceptualized as a ‘Ferrari Clubhouse’ rather than a generic showroom and will serve as a space that owners can use to gather as a community, to share their common love for the brand and to connect with the knowledgeable team at the facility.

The building has been designed taking sustainability into account with regard to the use of water, air conditioning and lighting systems.
