The company’s story officially began in 1947 when its first road car, the 125 S emerged from the gate of no. 4 Via Abetone Inferiore in Maranello. The iconic two-seater went on to win the Rome Grand Prix later that year and shortly thereafter was developed into a refined GT roadster. The company has travelled a long way since then, but its mission has remained unaltered: to make unique sports cars that represent the finest in Italian design and craftsmanship, both on the track and on the road. The very definition of excellence and sportiness, Ferrari needs no introduction. Its principal calling card is the numerous Formula One titles it has won: a total of 16 constructors’ championships and 15 drivers’ championships. And of course, there is the impressive line-up of legendary GT models. Cars that are unique for their design, technology and luxurious styling and that represent the best in Italian the world over.
The current GT range includes the award-winning Ferrari 458 Italia, the 458 Spider, the 4-seat and 4WD FF (Ferrari Four), the California and the F12berlinetta, all representatives par excellence of the new generation of 8- and 12-cylinder models.
At the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Ferrari presented the F12berlinetta: first of the new 12-cylinder range and the brand’s fastest and most powerful roadgoing car ever. Also in Geneva, Ferrari presented the new California 30 which is 30 kilos lighter and 30 hp more powerful than its predecessor.
