Cars do not exist in a bubble. For every engine component, body line, and paint color, there is a long line of evolution behind it. Technologies change, design preferences come and go, but Ferrari has been consistently a top player in the automotive world. From its origins in mid-20th-century Italy to the California T or LaFerrari models of 2016, Ferrari has made the right moves in every way. Let us take a look back to uncover the history behind these beautiful luxury sports cars we have at Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale.
Today’s Ferrari models feature V8 and V12 engines that produce anywhere from around 400 to nearly 1,000 horsepower and from just above 300 to over 600 foot-pounds of torque. The first Ferrari car also featured a 12-cylinder engine. In 1947 when it rolled out of the factory gates in Maranello, the 125 S had a total output of 1,500 c.c., making it an instant contender on the race track. It is no surprise that the earliest Ferrari was a race-ready vehicle, though, because its creator was none other than esteemed race-car driver Enzo Ferrari.
To this day, Ferrari cars are among the highest performing vehicles found anywhere. Schedule a test drive in one of the new or pre-owned models in our inventory in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to discover the brilliance of Ferrari performance.
