    The name “Ferrari” is a brand in itself and occupies an extremely superior spot in the world of cars. In the world of supercars, many refer to Ferrari as the “King'.

    Ferrari – A Brief History

    Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the company, had his eyes set on racing and therefore, production was never on his plans. After some time, the company acquired alfa Romeos and equipped them with suitable components for racing. This was a masterstroke that made the company even more successful, and as a result, became a part of Alfa's work team. The professional association soon ended. When this happened, World War 2 was ongoing, which had a catastrophic effect on the presence of international racing. Eventually, the war came to an end, and Ferrari realised that they need to find a new way of making money that would offer greater profits since producing a few race cars would not be very profitable

    The car manufacturer introduced their very first production car in the year 1948. Even though it did not sit well with Enzo's preferences since he was very focused on racing, the journey of Ferrari's greatness began. One remarkable point in the journey of Ferrari as an established car manufacturer came when, after four decades, the company celebrated the propitious occasion with the car that commenced the company journey towards soaring heights – The Ferrari F40.

    Even today, the F40 manages to turn heads. The car's novelty paired with limited availability makes the car an absolute beast in the era of supercars. Even though Ferrari designed the F40 to wow the world with its staggering performance, it did not compromise on styling and appearance. The almost 3-litre engine offering 478 horsepower owing it all to the twin turbochargers made the car “really fast”. The car has more than a few admirers. The list of people who own the classic includes F1 drivers such as Alain Prost (Four-Time Champion), celebrities like Nick Mason (Pink Floyd band member). As a result of the F40's success, the company also launched its successors inspired by the vehicle, namely the F50 and Enzo, 10 and 20 years later respectively. Therefore, these cars celebrate the company's 50th and 60th road car manufacturing anniversaries.
