Ferrari celebrates at Gunwharf
SOME of Ferrari's best-known supercars will be at Gunwharf Quays today as part of its 70th anniversary celebrations.
Super-car fans are encouraged to venture down to Gunwharf Quays to survey the array of impressive vehicles which will be put on display as part of the celebrations.
The display will feature the Limited Series La Ferrari Aperta and many others.
General manager at Gunwharf Quays Colin Wilding said ‘We are thrilled to welcome these iconic cars to the centre’.
He added: ‘Our waterfront location will provide a spectacular setting, giving supercar enthusiasts a fantastic photo opportunity.’
The public have a chance to appear in the company’s 70th anniversary collage.
Anybody who takes pictures of the cars or themselves with the vehicles can send them to Ferrari to be included. The cars will arrive at 2pm and will leave Gunwharf at 4.30pm to continue their tour of the UK.
The anniversary celebrations started in the manufacturer’s home town of Maranello and the festivities have spread across the world.
This is a result of the popularity of the cars that started with the 125S, the first car to bear Enzo Ferrari’s name in 1947.
This first Ferrari for the road was built for racing and from there has come the renowned modern supercar.
And electrification seems to be the future of Ferrari with talk of all cars being hybrid in 2019 in an effort to ‘cut emissions and fuel consumption’, chief executive Sergio Marchionne told Reuters last year.
He said the move would ‘yield additional performance’ and excite any car enthusiast with the prospect of a more powerful supercar.
