Ferrari turns 70 in style
Goodwood, like many other events this year, celebrated 70 years of Ferrari’s very first car. To mark the anniversary, 70 historic Ferraris hit the Goodwood hillclimb in a special parade, led by the first car to wear a Ferrari badge, the 1947 125S.
Famous faces piloting these cars included the likes of Derek Bell, Jackie Stewart and Dario Franchitti, as well as Formula 1 and Le Mans 24 Hours stars, Marc Gené and Emanuele Pirro.
The crowds were treated to four-, six-, eight-, and twelve-cylinder cars in what many on social media described as an ‘eargasm.’
In addition, a throng of Ferraris past and present came together on the lawn of Goodwood House to create a unique moment, too, marked with large ‘70 years of Ferrari’ banners.
Goodwood’s ‘Style et Luxe’ concours d’elegance held a special Ferrari 250 display. Highlights of the section, which was named ‘Maranello’s Masterpieces’, included a 1953 250MM spider, a 1958 250 GT Berlinetta Tour de France, a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT Coupé Speciale Pininfarina, and a Ferrari 250 GT Bertone Shark Nose.
