Founded by Enzo Ferrari, the famous prancing horse is a world-renowned symbol easily identifiable as Ferrari. The prancing horse was originally used by an Italian World War I pilot - Francesco Baracca, who had the emblematic motif painted on his airplane.
After the war, Baracca's parents offered the famous prancing horse symbol to Enzo Ferrari, who then started using it on his racing Scuderia, whilst also adding a yellow shield - honouring his home town of Modena, whilst also including an Italian tricolour. Meanwhile, the renowned red paint colour associated with Ferrari models was purely chosen as this was the colour assigned by the International Automobile Federation to Italian Grand Prix cars.
Ferrari has gone on to have a truly fascinating history, creating some of the world's finest supercars. With priceless models such as the 250 GTO, F40, 355 and of course the Ferrari Enzo - not to mention the hugely technological LaFerrari amongst their decorated history.
Therefore, Ferrari are celebrating 70 years of their history with an exclusive, highly advanced new model. Introducing the unbelievable La Ferrari Aperta. Naturally the La Ferrari Aperta is an ultra-exclusive Ferrari which uses a state-of-the-art HY-KERS system, making it the highest performing, and most efficient Ferrari ever made. It features hybrid technology coupling an 6262cc V12 engine with a 120kW electric motor - resulting in hypercar performance and 60mph coming up in under 3 seconds.
As well as this awe-inspiring hypercar, Ferrari are releasing 70 special edition liveries, replicating 70 important cars from Ferrari's past. The 70 liveries will be applied to one example of a 488 GTB, 488 Spider, California T, GTC4 Lusso and F12 Berlinetta - totalling 350 cars. The iconic liveries can be seen in all their glory below, and what model from Ferrari's history inspired that particular livery.
