Five Interesting Facts About Ferrari
- Iconic race car driver, Enzo Ferrari, was a mule-shoer and blacksmith for the Italian Army during World War I.
- The instantly recognizable black stallion used as Ferrari’s logo was initially in honor of flying ace Count Francesco Baracca, whose World War I airplane was also adorned with the rearing horse emblem.
- The most expensive Ferrari was a 250 GTO built in 1963. It sold for a reported $52 million in 2013.
- The Ferrari that met its demise in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off were replicas of the 250 Gt model and not an actual one. Of course not, since even at 1986 prices, destroying one would have cost producers $350,000. Even the vehicle used in the parking valet scenes was a “replicar”.
- Ferrari gifted an Enzo Ferrari to Pope John Paul in 2004. That donation went to the Vatican and was then auctioned off for $1.1 million. Those proceeds went to support the victims of that year’s tsunami in Southeast Asia.
