Some people say spaghetti, some people say pizza, but the true believer knows that Italy’s greatest creation was the Ferrari. Founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1928, the company was sponsoring racers long before it began producing barely street-legal cars in 1947. While Enzo had to sell his car company to Fiat in 1969, the Ferrari brand, name and distinctive sound have prospered.
And what a sound, it is the stuff of legends. The deep rumbling and high pitched squeal of the massive engine have adorned song and film for the better part of a century, awakening the primal need for a really expensive car in middle age men worldwide. Most recently, the Ferrari was featured in a high speed chase seen in the high dollar Hollywood production “Bad Boys 2”. I don’t know about anyone else, but I know that after seeing that movie I tried to figure out how many cans I would need to recycle in order to afford the multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars one of these beauties costs. I could digress into the can count, but there just isn’t enough space on page.
The Ferrari brand has become synonymous with luxury. People pay more for shirts, hats and key chains with the Ferrari logo just to have a small piece of ownership in the vaunted automobile experience. No other brand of automobile in the world elicits the same reaction out of people as a well kept Ferrari. Perhaps it is the awe of such a high performance machine, or the fear of being sued for scratching it, but people seem to make a wide path when they see a Ferrari coming, almost as if they are rolling out the red carpet.
And these fine automobiles, while complete out of the box, are a point of pride for people who like to customize their ride. While a Ferrari owner might think twice about putting a “My kid is student of the month” sticker on the back bumper of their car, they are all for powder coated brakes and custom exhaust systems. An automobile renowned for both style and substance, the customization is not limited to these run of the mill items.
On the cosmetic side, bug deflectors, chrome, lights, muffler tips, mirrors and many other options are available to make your already high profile vehicle stand out further. For the true Ferrari devotee, though, even better performance can be had at a price. Like any Honda Civic, Ferraris can be fitted with a performance chip, allowing the driver to harness even more horsepower. Unlike a Honda Civic, however, most of these chips come with a price tag of better than four thousand dollars.
For the more frugal Ferrari owner, as if such a thing exists, standard options such as air intakes, exhaust systems and suspension and chassis improvements can boost your car’s performance above the showroom floor level. The price tag on many of these items might seem stiff, but there is no questioning that a well tuned Ferrari is a force to be reckoned with in the racing world. Ferrari’s driving team holds practically every Formula One record to date with several championships under the Ferrari banner.
While not every Ferrari lover has the heart of a racer, it is hard to argue that the “Cavallino Rampante”, Ferrari’s famous black pony on a white shield does not turn heads. The most timid Buick driver white can imagine white knuckles on the steering wheel of a Ferrari running 200 plus miles an hour around a track. Can you put a price on that kind of experience?
