On this day back in 1947, Founder and CEO Enzo Ferrari drove the first model bearing his name on the roads in Maranello. Called the 125 S, it featured a 1.5L V12 engine that was designed by Gioacchino Colombo with some help from engineers Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi. Two months later, the 125 S would make its racing debut at Piacenza Circuit. It was leading the race before an issue with the fuel pump took it out. But nine days later, the 125 S would capture its first victory in the Rome Grand Prix by Franco Cortese.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, Ferrari has released a video reenacting that special day before transitioning to showing off a LaFerrari Aptera driving on those same roads.
Ferrari is planning to host anniversary celebrations in 60 countries with the LaFerrari Aptera taking center stage. These various celebrations will culminate in a special celebration in Maranello on September 9th and 10th.
