A lot of people have different opinions on which car manufacturer is the greatest in the world. However, throughout all the discussions, one brand is spoken about with more reverence, more respect, and more admiration than most. For over 75 years, the reputation Ferrari built has never been eclipsed. Such is the legend of the name.

The company was founded in 1939, and the first Ferrari automobile was assembled a year later. It took another seven years though before the company was known as a car manufacturer. Fiat purchased 50 percent of the company in 1969, and another 40 percent in 1988. The company was restructured in 2014 by Fiat Chrysler. It was now a holding company for the Ferrari group.
As far as brands go, many people have chosen Ferrari as the world’s strongest brand. In fact, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO holds the record for being the most expensive car in history, selling for $38 million at 2012 auction.
Over the years, people have seen the prancing horse logo of Ferrari in pop culture and sports. It has been the choice of car for many action heroes on film. On the racing circuit, however, Ferrari rules many leagues. It has been the most dominant force in Formula One, just as it has ruled the automotive industry since its birth.
