On 12th March 1947, Enzo Ferrari turned the key in the ignition of his 125 S, the first car bearing his name. This marked the beginning of a tradition that has never ended. In Padua, for the first time, you will see Ferrari's craftsmanship, dedication, tradition, and innovation, and celebrate a timeless legend which lives on also thanks to the precious certification, maintenance and restoration work carried out by Ferrari's Classic Department. This exhibition has been organised by Auto e Moto d'Epoca in collaboration with the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena, and this event marks 75 years of the legendary Maranello-based car manufacturers.

The Ferrari 125 S, the first car to sport the ‘Prancing Horse' (Cavallino Rampante) make, will in fact be inaugurating the selection of cars on display. The début of the 125 S on the Piacenza race circuit was, in Enzo Ferrari's words, a "promising failure", due to a fault which forced Franco Cortese to withdraw. However, in the weeks that followed, the car won a generous six races out of thirteen.
