This college bought Maserati and Ferrari to welcome its freshmen

The luxury cars are said to have cost a whopping US$1.5 million.

A college in central China spent millions to buy super luxury cars, including Maserati, Ferrari and Porsche, to welcome its freshmen.

According to the South China Morning Post, the Wuchang Polytechnic College spent CNY10 million (US$1.5 million) for teaching students majoring in repairing luxury cars.

Liu Yuanjin, the teacher in charge of the course nicknamed “luxury cars class”, was quoted as saying that the aim of the expensive purchases is to allow students to work on the vehicles and get a better understanding of their design.

“To help students learn the abilities highly demanded by the market, our college has built a practice centre that occupies 4,600sq m,” Liu said.

It is the second year of the "luxury cars class" with 80 students admitted this year. Sixty students enrolled last year have received offers from top car services suppliers in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Hubei provinces.
