Back in 1947, Scuderia Ferrari designed and produced the first Sport with the Prancing Horse on the bonnet, the 125 S, fitted with a radical and extraordinary 12 cyninder engine which would have a profound effect on the international motoring scene as well as becoming a signature piece for the car company. From that day on, Ferrari has been ever present in the Formula 1 Championship as well as building competition cars with 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 cylinder engines and grand touring cars with an exceptional mechanical pedigree. Almost all these cars are still in existence today and the Maranello company considers it extremely important to continue supporting that illustrious heritage through its Ferrari Classiche Department.
