Enzo Ferrari Takes Ferrari From Formula 1 to the Road in Manufacturing Digital

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Enzo Ferrari established Scuderia Ferrari in Italy in 1929 with the intention of sponsoring amateur race car drivers and inventing racing cars.

It took more than 15 years before Ferrari began to create its own road cars in the late 1940s.

Today, Ferrari is one of the biggest brands on the planet and its journey is one of astounding success and unique worldwide success.

Manufacturing Digital looks at Ferrari's key innovations of the past six decades, bringing you rare footage and images from the Ferrari archive.

We take a close look at how Ferrari has brought technology from its race cars to the road.

Ferrari has a history of iconic cars including the Ferrari 125 S, 250 LM, 365 GT4 BB, GTO and the 360 Modena, leading up to the new Ferrari FF.

The FF -- an acronym for Ferrari Four (four seats and four-wheel drive) -- ushers in an entirely new GT sports car concept.

Its new drive-train, which is called 4RM, weighs 50 percent less than conventional four-wheel drive systems. Thanks to this system, the new Ferrari FF offers maximum performance regardless of weather conditions.

The FF, which is a replacement for the 612 Scaglietti model, is paired with a 6.3-litre V12 engine producing 660 horsepower at 8,000 rpm; the gearbox is a transaxle dual-clutch type.
