Fer­rari turns 70 in style

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Out & About -

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.
