Yes the man himself, the one who brought us the prancing horse of Ferrari without him the super car industry, would not be the same Lamborghini may have brought us the first mid- engine road car with the Miura but Ferrari is the true hero of supercars if its not red with a prancing horse on the badge then it can’t be a true thoroughbred super car. Known as quite a harsh man he managed to see the launch of the F40 one of the greatest cars of all time before his death in 1988 and had the F60 named the Enzo in his honour.

The only man to rival Ferrari in the legend status he was the man to bring the world the production line, he brought the Model T into the world, by 1918 half the cars I America were Model T Fords. However contrary to popular belief he never said, “You can have any colour so long as it’s black.”
