Where are Ferraris Made?

Ferrari’s are produced exclusively in Maranello, Italy, which has been the home of this world-renowned automaker since Enzo Ferrari moved the factory there in 1943, though the first Ferrari-badged car wasn’t produced until 1947. The Ferrari factory is special, as is the company’s relationship with Maranello itself.

Ferrari Factory

The Ferrari Factory in Maranello, Italy

Ferrari’s Maranello factory is a 165,000-square-meter facility where approximately 130,000 works are employed. Together with the fact that Ferrari production is limited — approximately

8,400 are made each year — and it’s clear that tremendous care is taken to make each and every Prancing Horse worthy of its legendary nameplate. The engines are cast in an in-house foundry, and then constructed by hand — in fact, the only part of the Ferrari production process that’s automated is the connection of each vehicle’s valve mechanics.


Ferrari’s History in Maranello

Scuderia Ferrari began its life in Modena, Italy in 1929, before Enzo Ferrari developed an interest in developing road cars. For a time, Scuderia Ferrari served as Alfa Romeo’s racing team, but was disbanded in 1938 when Alfa Romeo created an in-house racing team and installed Enzo Ferrari as its manager. This agreement lasted for only a year, when Enzo Ferrari left Alfa Romeo to form Auto Avio Costruzioni, which was based in the former headquarters of Scuderia Ferrari.

It wasn’t until 1943 that Enzo Ferrari was forced to leave Modena due to World War II. The first Ferrari-badged car — the 125 S — was produced in 1947, and these operations initially existed to fund the Scuderia Ferrari racing team. In the following decades, the nameplate has grown to be one of the most desirable in the automotive world for those driving on the road as well as the track, with tremendous Formula 1 success over its 90-year history and more to come in the future!

Ferrari’s relationship with Maranello has been mutually beneficial, and in many ways Museo Ferrari is a testament to that. Located less than 1,000 feet from the factory itself, the venue is a showcase not only of Ferrari’s vehicles and engineering prowess, but also of its many racing accomplishments. Visitors can view racing trophies, historical materials about Ferrari’s founding, and learn about the technology in Ferrari’s road vehicles and racing cars — much of which is the same. Formula 1 driving simulators, rotating exhibits, and the opportunity to take a tour of the factory itself round out the experience.
