Most recognize the iconic prancing horse on yellow background as the international symbol for performance and prestige. It is also the official mascot and logo of the world-famous automaker, Ferrari. Originally, Ferrari was a racing team using and modifying Alfa Romeo race cars. Scuderia Ferrari started production of its own road cars in 1940 under the name ‘Auto Avio Costruzioni’. Only in 1947 was the first car brandishing the Prancing Horse badge built.
Ferrari perfected the elements that contribute to amazing performance throughout decades of racing. They also managed to constantly introduce designs that are as intriguing as they are stunning. Cars such as the 250 GTO are forever etched into motorsport history for their sheer beauty. Others like the F40, released in 1989, are praised for their incredible performance still relevant to today’s performance cars.
The Ferrari brand is not only the about cars, it’s a lifestyle that people across the world relate to. Often times this is due to race pedigree, the history and the values that Ferrari stands for. While other times it’s simply about the thrill one gets just looking at one of their models.
The prancing horse symbol that Ferrari puts on every car belongs to a WWI Fighter Ace, Francesco Barraca. Enzo Ferrari decided to use the prancing on his cars as a nod to the ACE, having fought in WWI as well.
The renowned Racing Red “Rosso Corsa” color on Ferrari’s cars was not by choice. In fact, the International Automobile Federation (FIA) attributed the color to Italian Race cars (like green for British cars). In the 90’s, a whopping 85% of Ferraris orders were for red. Today however, only 40% are ordered in the classic color.
