The classic look of the Ferrari is its blazing race red color next to the distinguished black steed on canary yellow background topped by the Italian flag. Colors have been the essence of luxury when it comes to expensive cars. But what's the Ferrari, and how did its recognition come to be?
The Ferrari essentially began Italian Enzo Ferrari's corporation of the Scuderia Ferrari in 1929. He didn't exactly build the company for the purpose of selling luxury sports vehicles built for the road, but to simply provide sponsorship for the Modena-based newbie automobile racers and fans. Its founder, for a time, successfully raced drivers in Alfa Romeos until he learned of Alfa Romeo's desire to purchase Scuderia.
This forced Enzo to inevitably carry on with Scuderia Ferrari on his own. What made this great man begin the massive Ferrari sports car empire? It was a result of the need to finance the Scuderia that he reluctantly sold the very first Ferrari, dubbed the 125 S, in the year 1947.
However, the force that was Ferrari failed to come to be as a consequence of just an image of luxury and prestige, since Enzo did not wish to even begin sales of his racecars. What gave the Ferrari its niche market was its gorgeous design and breakneck driving speeds.
Knowing this particularly fascinating history; speed up to the present and we have the sports auto giant Ferrari still holding true to its reputation of beauty and speed.
The fastest Ferrari sports car to date is the 2002 Ferrari ENZO, designed by the Pininfarina design house. The new-found speed of the Ferrari ENZO comes from the fact that every bit of the design facet of this model serves a specific speed or aerodynamic function.
The Ferrari ENZO is a tribute to its Formula 1 participation, making a statement both on the race track and on the glamorous and fast sports car lists. For one, its sleek and pointed front were built to facilitate the airflow, helping cool the brakes and the engine during the heat of a race. The entire body's shape is to create effective aerodynamics and reduce drag.
Beginning with the Ferrari ENZO is the option for buyers to personalize the Ferrari's cockpit in order to best suit their taste and needs.
Enzo Ferrari built an empire on the statement of beauty and speed. With its continued patronage for these 2 values through the years, expect Ferrari to resume being a force to be reckoned with.
