The Ferrari Legacy: Celebrating 70 years of Supercars


Here at Supercar Experiences, our Ferrari hire has always been one of our most popular.  And we know why: steeped in history and renowned for an adrenaline pumping performance, a Ferrari rental is always a good idea.

Ferrari celebrates its 70th birthday this summer and we look back at the brand which has made its Ferrari red the international colour for speed.


Founded in 1939, Ferrari is one of the most long-standing and successful sports car companies, with the most successful racing team in Formula One Racing. It’s founder, Enzo Ferrari based the company in Modena, where the 1st Ferrari car was built in 1940.

Quick to establish a reputation, the company moved to Maranello. The first true Ferrari-badged car came in 1947, the famed Ferrari 125 S, powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine.

Since the Formula One World Championship was established in the 1950s, Ferrari has won the most constructors championships, and produced the greatest amount of winning race car drivers, including Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen, Michael Schumacher, among others.


The brand has some of the most passionate fans and is synonymous with speed, power and luxury. Of course, the Ferrari 125 S is integral to the brand name. Following suite in 1988, the Ferrari F40 arguably remains the most famous supercar to date. However, Supercar Experiences has a few personal favourites that are currently in production…

Ferrari 488 GTB Hire

Supercar Experiences’ latest addition to its fleet of Ferrari rentals is the 488 GTB. Hailed as a new chapter in the 8-cylinder history of Ferrari, the 488 GTB delivers an incredible performance that is easily controlled by all drivers.

The car exudes sportiness, inside and out, thanks to a design inspired by the original 308 GTB and this 3902 CC power unit. There is nothing quite like the growl of the V8 powertrain as it achieves 0-100KM/H in 3.0 seconds with a maximum power of 670 CV at 8000 rpm.

Ferrari California T rental

The darling of 2015 is the Ferrari California T. Following the classic Ferrari proportions in design, the car’s sleek looks do not overshadow an outstanding performance. Its incredible 560BHP is courtesy of Ferrari’s new 3.9 litre bi-turbo V8: only 30BHP less than the growling 458 Italia.

The California T hire can achieve 0-100KM/H in 3.6 seconds. Experience the power and the classic Ferrari feel in this turbo convertible.
