In 1947, Enzo Ferrari changed the way the world understood the sports car. Ferrari’s success in the sports car world happened somewhat by accident. Enzo Ferrari was initially the head of the motor racing department for Alfa Romeo, but when World War II came, Alfa Romeo was confiscated, and Ferrari began to produce road cars, the first of which was the 125S, produced in 1947.
Ferrari and Speed
Ferrari’s reputation for quality sports cars comes out of its reputation for Formula One auto racing. Ferrari has competed in the Formula One World Championship every single year of its existence, dating back over 50 years. Ferrari won the World Sportscar Championship seven of its first nine years of existence. Ferrari owns nearly every Formula One driving record, including 15 World Championships and 209 Grand Prix victories.
