It is hard to overstate the presence that Ferrari has in the world of classic cars, and even in the automotive world in general, where the marque’s signature red paint has been a by-word for speed, performance and exclusivity for decades.
Formed largely thanks to one man’s passion and drive to create the ultimate racing machine, the brand still bears Enzo Ferrari’s name to this day, as well as the philosophy that has kept them on top of the world both on the track and on the road.
Formed by successful Fiat driver and designer Enzo Ferrari as a splinter group of the manufacturer’s racing division, it was hardly possible to buy a Ferrari for road use until the early 1950s, and the brand focused mainly on supplying gentleman racing drivers with record breaking machines to attack circuits around the world. Victory after victory increased demand for the brand, and Ferrari began developing model after model that was a mostly sanitised version of the very cars they put on the track, modified for road use. It was this performance-first approach that often led to Ferrari models being the first on the market to display featured that consumers could see in Formula 1 championship winners.
While not nearly as closely associated with luxury as many of the world’s biggest classic car brands, there is no doubt that no marque can compete with the Ferrari reputation for performance, and every model is a design symphony of body and mechanics working in harmony. That’s why you shouldn’t entrust the restoration of your classic Ferrari to just anyone.
At The Carrosserie Company we have the perfect blend of craftsmanship and engineering skill to do justice to both elements of your classic Ferrari’s personality, carrying out world class bodywork and trim restoration while also conducting full nut and bolt mechanical restoration. Whether yours is a custom built GT model from the 1950s, or a red-blooded performance machine from the height of the brand’s F1 dominance in the 90s, we have the talent and the diligence to carry out high quality restoration of any scale.
