Ferrari's first Chinese showroom has opened in Shanghai, with the automaker aiming to open 11 more dealerships on the mainland in the next 18 months.

China's average yearly income is only $1,000, and last year a scandal emerged when a businessman's wife in a BMW SUV plowed over a female farmer in an industrial city.
