Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1947, Ferrari has long stood for innovation and engineering perfection and top performance on and off the track. Since the debut of the 125S, the first Ferrari-badged car, Ferrari has recorded over 5,000 victories in races around the world. While organized with the sole intent to build and campaign race cars, Ferrari funded his racing pursuits by building and selling exotic road-going variants that are now ranked among the most beautifully designed and engineered cars of all time.
