The beginning of an iconic brand
Imagine if you had been living in the world where the creator of Ferrari, Enzo Ferrari had never been born. Hundreds of garages in Beverly Hills, Palm Beach, East Hampton and Monte Carlo would sit dry and gather dust. The two front cars often would be missing at the starting grids of the Grand Prix. Boasting to your friends that “one day I’m going to possess a Ferrari” would make them ask, “What’s that? An animal?, and Italian race fans would occupy the cafes on Sunday afternoons only to voice out their torment at the departure of their favourite Italian F1 team.
But in 1898 Enzo Ferrari was born. And the former mechanic turned race driver turned race manager founded a company, known as “Scuderia Ferrari” in 1929 and begin to pay for drivers and manufactured race cars before dedicating his life to producing race cars that in the coming years would win more world tournaments than any other team, would set off bidding frenzies worth multi-million dollars in crowded auction houses, would grace the photo spreads in automobile magazines, and would create enough of stallion-adorned products to fill up a glamorous fashion house.
Today, Ferrari continues to participate in car racing, especially in Formula One and has sourced racing cars to other entrants, apart from its own Scuderia Ferrari team. Apart from that, Ferrari has produced a line of other products such as colognes, perfumes & fragrances, apparels for women, men and kids, accessories, home & living products, watches, collectibles and sunglasses. The brand has opened 13 Ferrari stores worldwide, in prominent cities such as Dubai, Hong Kong, Honolulu, Jeddah, Kuwait, Macau, Milan, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Rome, Paris, Singapore, and St. Petersburg.
The infamous Ferrari’s logo
Ferrari’s logo, the prancing black horse logo is the most valued logo in the auto kingdom. Enzo Ferrari designed the logo based on the prancing horse emblem that was painted on the Italy’s top fighter ace’s plane, Francesco Baracca. Enzo Ferrari loved the prancing horse emblem so much that he changed the white background to canary yellow, an official color for Modena, the birthplace of Enzo and from that day on, a star is born. When the ace pilot died in action, Enzo changed the color of the horse from red to black, to mourn the passing of the fallen pilot. Today, the iconic prancing black horse logo can be seen on Ferrari cars and the logo symbolizes speed, luxury and wealth.
