Ferrari is an Italian luxury sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. The company was founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1939 as Auto Avio Costruzioni, initially producing machine tools and aircraft components. However, Ferrari’s true passion was always racing, and he quickly began designing and building race cars.

In 1947, Ferrari produced its first car, the 125 S. It was powered by a 1.5-liter V12 engine and achieved great success on the racing circuit. In the following years, Ferrari continued to develop and produce a range of racing cars, including the 250 GTO, which is widely considered one of the most beautiful and iconic sports cars ever made.

Ferrari’s success on the track helped to establish the brand’s reputation as a leader in high-performance sports cars. In the 1960s and 1970s, the company expanded its product line to include a range of road-going sports cars, such as the Dino and the 365 GTB/4 “Daytona.” These cars were designed to be driven on public roads and became some of the most desirable and collectible cars of their time.

In the 1980s, Ferrari continued to innovate and produce a range of successful sports cars, including the Testarossa and the F40. In the 1990s and 2000s, the company introduced a number of new models, including the 360, the F430, and the 458 Italia. Today, Ferrari is known for its high-performance, cutting-edge sports cars, which are among the most sought-after vehicles in the world.
