Founded in 1939 by Enzo Ferrari, the company built its first car in 1940. However, the company was first recognised as an auto manufacturer back in 1947, when the first Ferrari-badged car was completed, this was the 125 S. Enzo saw his very first race aged just 10 years old…however it is rumoured that he learned to drive at just 13!
The black prancing horse in the famous Ferrari logo was originally the symbol of Count Francesco Baracca, a flying ace in the Italian air force. The family of Francesco allowed Enzo to use this as his emblem to bring him good luck!
Enzo’s main quote about his company is “My motors have soul”…which is very true!
Ferrari is a name that everyone remembers...much like seeing the face of someone who has just finished driving one!
