Our History

What has become known as one of North America's top Ferrari and Maserati dealerships was once just a boys dream. Born and raised in a small village south of Rome, Remo Ferri left school at the age of 14 and set out to conquer the automotive world.

Remo began his career as a mechanic in a motorcycle repair shop. Shortly after, he was given the opportunity work as an apprentice in the Mecca of automobile excellence, the Maranello headquarters.

He started his apprenticeship working on Ferraris in 1964 in Italy. In early 1967 he moved to Canada and continued to work on the marque's cars. His goal from the beginning had been to establish his own Ferrari dealership and, by 1976, he had reached that objective, establishing Maranello Motors which quickly became known throughout North America, for their outstanding service and dedication to Ferrari.

As the years past and as a result of a successful business that had been built from the ground up, Remo was able to acquire several franchises including Ferrari, Maserati, BMW and MINI. Today his empire stands tall waving banners of the world's most refined automobiles.

The flagship location, found in Vaughan Ontario, is the main showroom and service facility for both Ferrari and Maserati. The 90,000 square ft. building houses both brands separately, with individual showrooms, service receptions and service bays for both Ferrari and Maserati. In total, the new dealership has 24 service bays, a 15 vehicle showroom, an 8 vehicle drive through and a fully functional underground parking area for over 100 vehicles. The dealership also features a second floor automotive gallery and specialty boutique.

As the Ferrari and Maserati brands continue to grow in Canada, and in particular in Western Canada, a need for a Ferrari Maserati location in the province of Alberta was established. Through his strong relationship with the factory and with Ferrari Maserati North America, Remo was awarded the franchise in Alberta. Ferrari Maserati of Alberta opened spring 2008 in a new full service facility offering sales, service and parts. The new Ferrari Maserati of Alberta facility located in North East Calgary, is designed to incorporate all the elements of the new and sophisticated Ferrari and Maserati corporate identity. This includes a new and pre-owned car showroom, service reception and 6 service bays. This also includes a boutique that offers a wide range of authentic licensed Ferrari and Maserati merchandise from apparel and accessories to memorabilia.

Carlo Galasso

Once merely a young man's dream has become an Alberta chapter recognized as one of North America's top in customer satisfaction for Ferrari and Maserati dealerships. Born and raised in Calgary, Carlo Galasso finished school to master University. Trained as a lawyer, he decided to conquer the manufacturing industry thus creating Perfect Fit Industries.

Humbly beginning his business from his basement while going to University, Carlo found success very quickly once again, and life soon forced Carlo to make another choice as to which life path to travel. Perfect Fit's manufactured Car Bra found that demand grew so quickly Carlo needed to choose between his love of education and Canadian Law, or his company.

Choosing to focus on his business, he was soon christened the International Car Bra King. Throughout the 1980s and in to the 1990s Perfect Fit's growth enabled Carlo to realize his dream of becoming a millionaire and acquiring his very first Ferrari. However, in order to find this new Prancing Horse he needed to find a Stable. His quest led him to Mr. Remo Ferri, another gentleman on a Ferrari mission. Soon Carlo's passion for Ferrari evolved in to one of the largest Ferrari collections in the west.

As the years past, a subsequent efficaciously evolving manufacturing business expanded from Car Bras to Plastics, Extrusion, and Hood Guards. The company that had been built from the ground up enabled Carlo to reach even further for the stars.

As the Ferrari and Maserati brands continued to grow in Canada, particularly on the Prairies, the need for a dealership located in Alberta was recognized. Carlo's strong relationship with Remo Ferri, the Factory, and Ferrari North America, gave way to Carlo and his team being awarded the franchise.

The flagship location, temporarily found in Calgary's NE, became the stable for Ferrari and Maserati until Carlo was able to find the perfect location to build. Opening its doors in 2008, the dealership was still under renovations as the need for local service was so great. Albertans were lining up, knowing they helped create and could sustain their beautiful stable.

This full service facility offers sales, service, parts, and boutique. It is designed to incorporate all the elements of the new and sophisticated Ferrari and Maserati corporate identity. Thus including, a warm reception from your first step Showrooms, a welcoming service department and service bay accommodating 6 lifts, parts department, and a boutique offering a wide range of authentic licenced Maserati merchandise. From apparel and accessories to memorabilia; the perfect gift, be it for another or one's self.
