A Brief History Lesson

  • On February 18th 1898, Enzo Ferrari was born in Modena, Italy.
  • In his 20s, Ferrari was a racecar driver for Alfa Romeo. He founded the Scuderia Ferrari mainly to allow car owners to race, and it eventually became the racing department of Alfa Romeo, led by Ferrari.
  • In 1939, Ferrari left Alfa Romeo with the condition that he could not use the Ferrari name in automotive racing for four years. He couldn’t wait to beat Alfa Romeo in a car bearing his own name!
  • In March of 1947, the first Ferrari, the 125 S, drove through that factory gate in Maranello. The 125 S won the Rome Grand Prix that year, and Ferrari has since earned over 5,000 victories throughout the world’s race tracks and street circuits.
