Ferrari Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About
One of the most recognizable brands in the world, Ferrari has become an industry leader when it comes to the automotive industry. Dubbed as the most powerful brand in the world by Brand Finance, Ferrari boasts a colorful history and has produced top-caliber cars for over 70 years now.

If you are a Ferrari owner then you probably know a lot about the company. But even with its fame, there are some things about the company that most people don’t know about. Here are some interesting facts about Ferrari that you probably didn’t know about.
- Every element of a Ferrari car is customizable. What most people don’t know about the company is that it has a “Tailor Made” program that would allow their buyers to personalize every component of their chosen Ferrari car. But this program only happens at the factory in Maranello. There you’d be able to choose from three available collections namely Scuderia (racing-based collections), Classica (modernized interpretations of the classic GT), and Inedita (multiple and out-of-the box combinations.) You can basically choose anything from colors, accessories to interior trims and finishes. However, once you have chosen your car and made the personalization, you will be receiving your car in 2 years time.
- The Ferrari Team had won more than 5000 sanctioned races. According to Ferrari, their drivers have won more than 5,000 trophies ever since their first victories in 1947.
- Cars are not the only thing that Ferrari sells. If you think that Ferrari only works on automobiles then you are mistaken. Throughout their 30 outposts around the world, the Ferrari Company makes about $1.5 billion every year in retail sales. They sell items like Ferrari-logoed clothes, sunglasses, watches, mobile phone covers and even shoes. And these products also cost a fortune. In fact, their Ferrari F14T scale model car alone is priced at $5,400.
- Ferrari has a theme park in Abu Dhabi. You probably didn’t expect that, did you? The Ferrari World was first opened in 2010 in Abu Dhabi and is known as the world’s largest indoor theme park and hosts the world’s fastest roller coaster at 150 mph. They also boast family friendly rides and attractions.
