Since its official launch in 1947, Ferrari has remained a consistent luxury sports car automaker. The Italian company is synonymous with the acclaimed performance of their vehicles with unmatched speed. Also, their releases are celebrated by drivers and other carmakers all over the world.
Its founder, Enzo Ferrari, was a successful race driver for Alfa Romeo, a posh Italian car brand. In 1929, he founded the Scuderia Ferrari that began as a division in Alfa Romeo. It provided services to affluent drivers by preparing their powerful race cars. After a successful career as a race car driver and as head of Alfa Corse, he left his position in September 1939. He then established Auto Avio Costruzioni as his departure in Alfa Romeo forbade him to use the Ferrari name for at least four years. Initially, his company focused on manufacturing aircraft parts and machine tools. In 1947, they released a 1.5-liter, V12 race car named Ferrari 125 Sport. A decade after, his company was renamed Auto Costruzioni Ferrari.
Since then, Ferrari has launched exceptional vehicles fitted with innovations and gracefully winning various competitions around the world. Some of their acclaimed releases include the Ferrari 500 TRC that won at the 1957 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Ferrari Dino 246 GT hailed to be one of the most beautiful vehicles of all time, the 1980s pop icon Ferrari Testarossa made famous by US television show Miami Vice, and the celebrated Ferrari F40 which is the epitome of a modern supercar.
