Ferrari goes down memory lane for 60th anniversary

A tribute will be paid to Ferrari at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year to mark the classic brand’s 60th anniversary, with an iconic car from each one of the six decades it has been in existence on display.

The 1950s will be represented by a 250 Testa Rossa, which became one of the automaker’s most successful cars in 1958 when it won the 12-hour race in Sebring, the 1,000km contest in Buenos Aires and the 24-hour Le Mans race in the same year.

A 250 GTO will be exhibited to symbolise the 1960s while a Daytona, which was "undoubtedly the icon of 1970s" according to Ferrari, will represent its era.

The F40, which was created in 1987, will be on show, along with an F50 for the 1990s and an Enzo, named after Ferrari’s founder, will symbolise the last decade of the automaker.

Other features of the Ferrari tribute at Goodwood will include a 612 Scaglietti HGTS in a one-off police livery.

The Goodwood display is the latest part of a 60th anniversary celebration which saw the world record for the largest parade of Ferrari cars broken when 385 vehicles gathered at Silverstone.
