In addition to its epic supercars and growing roster of motorsport victories, Ferrari has emerged as a branding and merchandising powerhouse. But with its range of licensed paraphernalia ever increasing, the company's largest market has until now only had two retail outlets out of 20 worldwide Ferrari Stores. To that end, Ferrari has opened two more locations of its merchandising outlets in the United States: one in Miami and another in Hawaii.

The Miami location at the upscale Aventura Mall has 2150 square feet of retail space, while the Honolulu location has 3230 square feet of floor space on two levels at the Royal Hawaiia Center. They join the previous locations in Beverly Hills and Las Vegas, along with eight Italian stores and ten more around the world. Having recently strolled into a Ferrari Store at the Milan Malpensa airport, we can tell you the stores are packed full of Prancing Horse-emblazoned merchandise. Just don't stop in there expecting to book a test drive.

The press release is below the fold.

      The Ferrari store in Milan has one of their F1 cars in exposition, the first one Massa drove if I remember correctly. So even if you (understandably) don't want to shell out 250$ for a Ferrari jacket, having a look inside is always worth it.

      I have been to the one in Las Vegas inside the Wynn casino and it was amazing. Being able to go down into the dealership and see the service bay lined with rows of Ferraris was an awesome sight. I also went to the sales floor and got to stand between two Enzos for a photo op, a red one and a black one. Also lined up side by side were several F430, 360s, an F40 (my favorite of all-time) and a lot of others. These stores let the kid in all of us come out, I just wish I could have bought that coffee table made out of a Ferrari F1 engine block with a sheet of glass on top.

      Joey Tribbiani (while wearing Porsche jacket): "Only an idiot would wear this stuff if you didn't have the car! Right?"

      Aventura mall is a hell hole. They should have put it in Coral Gables if they wanted to be south of Palm Beach.

      Paying tribute to Miami Vice and Magnum PI, I see.

        It is open in the Royal Hawaiian (editors please note the 'n' in Hawaiian) Shopping Center in Waikiki. Saw it last Friday while driving down Kalakaua. Have not had the opportunity to go inside.

        It does have a F-1 car inside - dont know if it is a dummy or a real car.

      It's 'funny' that the Beverly Center is referred to being in Beverly Hills... try again
