Ferrari breaks world record

Ferrari and the Ferrari Owners Club GB have joined forces to break the world record for the largest parade of Ferrari cars, with 385 vehicles bearing the classic badge gathering at Silverstone over the weekend.

The attempt was organised to celebrate the Italian automaker’s 60th anniversary and the number of cars that attended was more than triple the previous record.

According to Ferrari, the combined value of the parade was at least £60 million, with rare and valuable models such as the 250 California Spider, 250GTO and the “ultra-exclusive” FXX on show.

Massimo Fedeli, managing director of Ferrari GB, described the amassed cars as “an amazing sight”.

“We are proud to have the support of so many Ferrari owners today in setting a new Guinness world record,” he added.

“We would like to express our sincere thanks to the owners club, our sponsors and everyone who has been working behind the scenes for months to achieve this fantastic record.”

At the head of the 385-car parade was a 599 GTB Fiorano driven by Bruno Senna, nephew of racing legend Ayrton Senna. In order to qualify for the record, the cars had to travel at least two miles, no more than two car lengths apart and be counted at the beginning and end of the parade.
