About Ferrari

On March 12th 1947, the very first Ferrari, the 12-cylinder 125 S, emerged from the factory at Maranello for its maiden test-drive with Enzo Ferrari himself at the wheel. That day marked the start of a story of a constructor unlike any other anywhere in the world.

Only two years after its first car, Ferrari was already nourishing the myth it would become by taking part in the main international races. Ferrari is the only constructor to have competed in every single season of the Formula 1 World Championship since its creation in 1950, winning as many as 15 World Drivers’ Championships and 16 World Constructors’ Championships.

Even today, in line with Ferrari tradition, Ferrari cars are examples of utmost technology and Italian style, represented by the outstanding current range of 12 and 8 cylinder models, the FF and the F12berlinetta, the 458 Italia and the California.
