The countdown has started to the opening if the world’s first Ferrari theme park on October 28th. With more than 20 rides and attractions lying beneath the iconic 200,000m² roof, Ferrari World will host attractions like the world’s fastest roller coaster which reaches speeds of 240kmph, and the world’s largest Ferrari gallery outside Maranello.
Benoy architects designed the Ferrari-red roof inspired by the classic body shell of the legendary Ferrari GT. Euramax has supplied the red and silver pre-coated aluminium. The combination of high-gloss colours and a harsh environment with salt (sea), sand (desert) and high UV impact (sun) meant a challenge for the Euramax technicians. The EuraBuild PVDF four-layer paint system was subsequently chosen.
With a total surface comparable to over 30 football pitches the roof is also the biggest roof in coated aluminium worldwide.
