The official website states that Ferrari was “born” in 1947. Not that it was founded, established, or created, but born. Then again, when one has engineered the 250 GTO, which is considered “one of the most famous cars in history,” “legendary” models like the 275 and Daytona, and the Testarossa, “one of the most iconic of all Ferraris,” perhaps leeway should be granted.
Race car driver Luigi Chinetti was the first person to import Ferrari cars to America in the late 1940s, “including the first highway Ferrari, the 166 Inter” (ExoticCars)
