For over fifty years, Ferrari has been building cars that combine passion, design, and technological perfection. The Maranello marque is the only one that has always operated a technology transfer from its experimentation in Formula 1 to its road cars.
F1 Cars
The F2001 is Ferrari's 47th racing car designed specifically for the Formula 1 World Championship. Powered by a V10 engine, the new single seater was designed and built in Maranello. The design of the body differs substantially from that of previous cars due to the modifications called for by the new FIA technical regulations to improve safety. As far as the running gear is concerned, the new 050 engine is a stressed member and is mounted longitudinally, as is the sequential electro-hydraulic 7-speed gearbox in pre-machined and welded titanium. The F2001 retains the periscope-style exhausts.

360 Modena
360 Modena The 360 Modena is a clean-sheet design which anticipates trends for future Ferrari road cars. These include lower weight combined with greater chassis rigidity ? seemingly contrasting objectives that have been achieved by employing innovative construction technology. The 360 Modena is the first production Ferrari to be constructed entirely in aluminium. Chassis, bodyshell and suspension wishbones are all made from this light-weight material, allowing the engineers to provide the best overall
performance and handling ever achieved in a mid-engined Ferrari, along with levels of comfort unheard of before.
550 Maranello
550 Maranello The 550 Maranello is Ferrari's answer to those who believed the performance of a front-engined V12 car could not beat that of a mid-engined sports car. The successor to the F512M, the 550 Maranello gave decisive proof of its superior ability, as well as day-to-day practicality. The engineering brief was extremely demanding. Ferrari had to design and build a car for those customers who look for a technologically advanced vehicle with uncompromising levels of performance, handling and road-holding, yet who appreciate ease of use and comfort.
The result was a thoroughly modern concept designed in the finest Ferrari tradition, combining state-of-the-art engineering, styling and aerodynamic efficiency. A car that has broken production car speed records, covering 100 km (62 miles) at an average speed of 304.1 km/h, (188.88 mph) and 296.168 km/h (183.955 miles) in one hour.
