The birth of an automotive icon.
One of the most recognizable logos in the automotive world is Ferrari’s Prancing Horse. The icon adorns all Ferrari models and is a symbol of Italian performance. But where did it come from?
Ferrari has released a video detailing the origins of the Ferrari badge with the black Prancing Horse logo. It all began with Francesco Baracca, a WWI fighter pilot that painted a black Prancing Horse on the fuselage of his aircraft. In 1932, the logo was first used by Enzo Ferrari on the Scuderia Racing Team’s Alfa Romeo racecars at the Grand Prix of Spa. Then, in 1947, the Ferrari badge appeared on the 125 S, the first car produced in Maranello.
Check out the video and hear the story of the Ferrari badge that Enzo Ferrari only told once.
