A Brief History

For over 50 years Ferrari has been synonymous with speed, beauty and unmatched desirability in the supercar world. A name that combines unparalleled motorsport success with some of the most sought after road cars on the planet.

The first car to bear the Ferarri name was the 125 in 1947, but the company's roots go back much further to founder Enzo's 'Scuderia Ferrari' race team of 1929, which used Alfa Romeos badged with the famous Cavallino Rampante.

The 1950's saw the beginning of Ferrari's domination of motorsport with the inauguration of Formula One. The ever present team notched up their maiden victory in 1951, landing the first of their 13 world championships the following year. Legendary names such as Ascari, Fangio, Hill, Lauda and Schumaker being amongst the Tifosi's heroes. This decade also saw the first of their eight successes at Le Mans, with a record six consecutive.

Most observers agree that the 166 Inter of 1948 was the first true Ferrari for the road, followed by a succession of low volume, specialist sports cars based on the V12 250 series. Most have been styled by Pininfarina, who went on to exclusively design many all-time classics such as the Dino, Daytona, 308, F355 and 550 Maranello.

Ferrari, part of the Fiat empire since 1969, moved the supercar goalposts on with the gorgeous Group B inspired 288GTO of 1984. This was followed up with the legendary F40, F50 and the 220mph Enzo.

Modern day Ferrari's are amongt the most desirable cars on the planet. The 458, F12 and astounding LaFerrari hypercar are all leaders in their respcitve classes. Ferrari have also branched out into bespoke one-offs for their wealthy customers, building the spectacular P4/5 in collaboration with long time partners Pininfarina.
