Many people consider Ferrari to be the most famous car brand in the world, and its models are generally easy to identify from their stylish contours alone.
The company was originally set up in Maranello, Italy by the founder Enzo Ferrari in 1929 and it was his intention to mainly concentrate on motorsport. Today, the company is 90% owned by Fiat and the cars are probably the world’s most sought-after, high-performance vehicles.
A great deal of this must be due to the success that Ferrari has achieved in Formula One racing, including having more winning drivers than any other team as well as carrying off the constructors’ championship more often too.
The very first Ferrari road car was produced in 1947 and since then the company has used many of the world’s most famous car designers, including Pininfarina, Bertone and Zagato, to create the smooth and sinuous lines for which the marque has become so famous.
Behind every Ferrari is also the highly responsive and powerful V8 or V12 engine which, coupled with superb handling and road holding, makes for a quite unique driving experience. The California, 458 Italia and Berlinetta are all some of the most desirable cars to hire amongst many others we have available.
