In 1947, Enzo Ferrari constructed the 12-cylinder, 1.5-litre Tipo 125 racing car. While it might be the first vehicle to bear his name, what the car symbolised was far more important – an ambition to create the fastest car in the world.
Today, Scuderia Ferrari is the oldest surviving team in Formula One and has participated in every single championship since the 1950 edition. Its road cars elicit the kind of desire and passion that is rarely found anywhere else. Even a simple press of a Ferrari’s accelerator pedal can seduce your heart, let alone the sight of one.
Now, how about multiple rare Ferraris at once? In celebration of its 70th anniversary, Ital Auto Pte Ltd together with the Ferrari Owners Club Singapore will hold a parade. Stretching 70 kilometres, the parade will be held this Sunday, 20 August 2017 and start from the F1 Pit Building at 3pm before making its way to the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach.
There are a few viewing points you can head towards should you be interested in witnessing this parade. You can find them below. However, to capture the best of the parade, the most ideal vantage point will be the stretch of Orchard Road until Raffles City.
