The Naza Italia Lifestyle Centre is the largest Ferrari and Maserati showroom out of Italy. Sitting beside the Federal Highway in PJ, it has 2 floors with Ferrari on the ground floor and Maserati on the top. I paid a visit last week to check out the limited edition Ferrari Scuderia 16M Spyder. Have a look at some photos after the jump, and remember you can click the images for a larger resolution version!

This is the front entrance to the showroom. The stairs you see on the left takes you up to the second level which showcases the Maseratis.
This is the reception area. Even the reception counter looks quite luxurious as it is wrapped with leather! The showroom manager says most of the crowd comes in the mornings before lunch, with heavier traffic during the weekends.
Probably the only Ferraris I can afford, these are for very very young drivers, haha!
The Ferrari model range on display. In the foreground is the F430 Spider. Its soft top folds down into an area between the seating area and the engine bay within 20 seconds.
The F430 has two types of brakes available – regular cast-iron Brembos and Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide ceramic composite brakes. The latter are more expensive and have higher resistance to heat and brake fade. Ferrari claims the brakes do not fade even after 300 to 350 laps on their test track!
This is the limited edition 16M, done in a matte grey!
Massive brakes are expected for this model.
I can’t believe this badge is also found on the Hyundai Matrix.
The V8 peeks through the glass window of the engine bay.
This baby puts out 510 PS at a screaming 8,500rpm and 470Nm of torque at 5,250rpm and takes the 16M from 0 to 100km/h in only 3.7 seconds.
The exhaust backbox of the 16M.
It’s said that this unit was sent in by Ferrari for showcase purposes for a limited time only, but apparently already 3 Malaysians have booked this baby. That’s really amazing considering there are only 499 available in the world.
Another angle of the models on display.
This is the lounge for the Ferrari Club Malaysia members usage.
The engine bay of the Enzo Ferrari looks quite different from its other siblings. It looks way more hardcore and track-like somehow, more barren and purposeful rather than focusing on looking good, but yet somehow ends up looking nice in a different way anyway, because we know the raw power it produces – 660 PS and 657Nm of torque from a normally aspirated 6.0 litre V12.
According to Naza Italia, this is the only remaining Enzo in the world that has not been registered to a customer. You could probably call this Naza’s car, but since Naza is also the dealer, technically it does not have an “owner” yet. The last one out of 399 units.
This is the Ferrari merchandise corner – caps, shirts, perfume, and soon watches.
This is the customisation area, where a Ferrari buyer will be able to select the materials he wants in his car. When you’re paying this much you’d better be able to have pink leather if you want!
Various trim and alloy wheel designs as well as brake caliper paint.
The various types of leather.
Now we go upstairs to check out the Maseratis.
Of course a Maserati owner has the same customisation options too.
They have an MC12 here, what most people call the Enzo of Maseratis. It is built on the Enzo’s chassis but its larger than the Enzo. There are only 55 in the world, but 5 are not for sale, with the remaining 50 produced in 2 batches. The engine is based on the Enzo’s but tuned differently, it has a lower redline of 7,500rpm compared to the Enzo’s 8,200rpm for example.
The new permanent service center is still under construction so service now runs at a temp area nearby.
