The Ferrari family continues to celebrate the Prancing Horse’s legendary creations.
For decades since his passing, Enzo Ferrari’s legacy continues to live on in the form of one of the world’s most celebrated and aspirational names in the automotive and racing world. However, his family remains an integral part of what Ferrari is today, like his son Piero Ferrari, who serves as Ferrari’s Vice Chairman, as well as his great grandson, also named Enzo, who celebrated Ferrari’s family legacy in the Cavalcade Classiche event.
Piero drove the Ferrari F50, the avant-garde supercar that celebrated Ferrari’s glory and showcased the most advanced cutting-edge innovations of the time, while Enzo Mattioli Ferrari drove the F40 for the first time, the last Ferrari that the legendary Enzo oversaw. The experience was special for him, as he grew up with a poster of the F40 on his wall as a child.
Enzo drove the car, being what is essentially a Formula 1 car created to be driven on the road, for a few laps around the hills near Maranello before taking it to the cavalcade to get a feel for its unique character, and recalled that the first Ferrari he ever drove was a 328. His grandfather, Piero, was the one who let him get behind the wheel.
Piero became a grandfather at a relatively young age, and remains close with his grandchildren, and takes seriously his duty to nurture and continue the legacy that Enzo Ferrari created 76 years ago. As Ferrari continues to change and grow, the family that started it remains at the core of what makes it the incredible Ferrari brand that car enthusiasts all over the world admire.
