The Next Lap
Ferrari, which marked its 70th anniversary with a slew of events, is all geared up to hit new highs on the road ahead 意大利知名跑车法拉利今年欢庆品牌创立70周年，一系列的庆祝活动，标志着法拉利另一个高峰的开始。
As part of the brand’s 70th anniversary celebrations, 157 Ferraris drove a 70km lap, which flagged off at the F1 Pit Building and zoomed past iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands, Orchard Road and the Botanic Gardens.
The convoy in August — the largest ever gathering of Ferrari cars here — concluded at the new JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach. The event was organised by Ital Auto, Ferrari’s official distributor in Singapore, and the Ferrari Owners Club.
It marked the first time the LaFerrari Aperta, the brand’s new limited-edition, open-top supercar, made its debut here. The procession also included the 812 Superfast, the marque’s latest in technological wizardry; special editions such as the F12tdf, 458 Speciale Aperta and the Tailor-Made SG50 F12berlinetta; as well as rarely seen older models such as the 308 GTB, F355berlinetta, F430 Scuderia, F308 Quattrovalvole and the Testarossa.
The LaFerrari Aperta, of which only 209 units will be available, was developed specially for the Prancing Horse’s big bash. Targeting the car’s chassis and aerodynamics, rigorous research and development work by Ferrari’s technicians has resulted in a roadster that delivers the same performance, torsional rigidity, beam stiffness and drag coefficient characteristics as the coupe.
Dieter Knechtel, chief executive of Ferrari Far and Middle East, told ZBBZ: “I am so excited for Singapore to see the LaFerrari Aperta, as it constitutes all of what Ferrari is: the technology of race to road, the exclusivity and the beauty of design.”
The first Ferrari, the 125 S, was produced in 1947 by Italian Enzo Ferrari, a former car racing champ. Over the weekend of Sept 9 and 10 this year, the marque held a series of celebrations in its Italian hometown of Maranello to mark its 70th anniversary.
