The finest automobile manufacturer and developer in the whole world is none other than the Ferrari. With its marvelously implemented style, assured powerful quality and high regards to speed, The Ferrari is the automobile of choice specially in racing events. It truly deserves the renown it has today. But, from the time it is created, no one ever expected that it would become the best in the industry.
Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1929, Ferrari was first named Scuderia Ferrari. It was formed as an amateur driver’s sponsor in Modena, Italy. Enzo raced numerous drivers and successfully helped train these drivers in Alfa Romeo sports cars for nine years. In 1938, Enzo was hired to head the motor racing department of Alfa Romeo. For two years, he developed new technologies in regards to cars and excelled at his new job. However, due to the forming of a Fascist government in the 1940′s and the emergence of a World War, the Italian government absorbed Alfa Romeo. Fortunately, the division of Enzo was not affected because it was too small.
Enzo was not allowed to race for four years because of the contract he had with Alfa Romeo. What was known as the Scuderia Ferrari became known as known as the Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari. The newly named Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari develops and manufactures aircraft accessories as well as various machine tools. Consequently, it was the non-competition period. Still, Enzo manufactured a racecar, the Tipo 815.
Due to his contract with Alfa Romeo, Enzo Ferrari was not permitted to race for four years. By then, Scuderia Ferrari changed its name into Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari. The new Ferrari was now a developer of airplane accessories and machine tools. It was during this time that Enzo manufactured the first ever Ferrari, the Tipo 815. Unfortunately for him, it was the non-competition period.
The first ever Ferrari racecar to be displayed among the public was the Tipo 815. It saw little competition. It was debuted to the public at the Mille Miglia in 1940. Three years later, the Ferrari factory was moved to Maranello, Italy. This was very unfortunate for Enzo for the factory was consequently destroyed by Allied bombing raids during the Second World War. But, Enzo, with renewed determination, sought to rebuild the factory and he did so after the war was over. This day would mark Ferrari’s emergence as a top manufacturer of automobiles.
Enzo Ferrari was displeased by the fact that he was selling his automobiles. Even as the Ferrari brand cars grew and gained excellence in the world of automobiles. He was disappointed by the fact that most of his buyers only purchased the cars only for the prestige and not the overall performance.
However, Enzo Ferrari was reluctant in introducing to the public his automobiles. He was not pleased by the fact that people are buying his cars not for the performance, but only, for the prestige.
Even so, Ferrari continues to dominate the automobile industry. Over 3,000 are employed every year and 1,688 Euros are gathered from revenues annually. It is for this reason that Ferrari is the finest manufacturer in the world. No one ever knew that a racecar driver could ever establish the greatest racecar developer today.
