About 1939, Ferrari organized his own factory but was prevented from producing his own automobiles for four years because of a contract with Romeo, which feared competing against the famed Ferrari name. During WWII, Ferrari's factory was converted to produce ball bearings and other equipment.In 1947, however, Ferrari's first car with the prancing horse insignia debuted. A lifetime racing enthusiast, Ferrari produced few automobiles for private consumer sales until the 1953 debut of the 250 Europa, the first of the long line of Ferrari street cars that to this day remain highly valued as collectibles. Ferraris excelled on international racing circuits and garnered ten wins in the Formula One Constructors' Championship from 1956 to 1983 - more than any other make. After driving Ferraris to two Grand Prix victories in 1979, GILLES VILLENEUVE was tragically killed in a crash while attempting to qualify for the Belgium Grand Prix in 1982. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 27¼x16¼. See more material from these signers. See more listings in our BUSINESS & FINANCE (1,278).
