Ferrari celebrates 70 years

Ferraris are out in force in Italy this weekend to celebrate the motoring giant’s 70th birthday.

In Milan, around 500 cars were on show as owners and collectors gathered from across Europe to party and parade.

Later they were due to head to Modena, the hometown of founder Enzo Ferrari.

A series of tailor-made cars, all inspired by iconic models from the past are planned by the company this year to mark the anniversary.

Events are also due to take place at Maranello, home of the Ferrari factory and the site where founder Enzo Ferrari fired up his first car in 1947, the 125 S.

Three years later the Formula One World Championship started. Ferrari was one of the first entrants. By 1951, the team had won its first race at Silverstone and the myth and mystic surrounding the legendary car was born.

Since then, Ferrari has notched up 16 constructors titles and 15 drivers championships, more than any other Formula One racing team.
