Few men can claim as much of an an influence on 20th century automotive design than Enzo Ferrari, at almost 6’2″ tall he was a towering figure during his early days as a driver for Alfa Romeo. The management at Alfa quickly recognised Enzo’s leadership potential and before long he was in a commanding position, running almost 40 drivers for Alfa and establishing Scuderia Ferrari while still under the umbrella of the “other” Italian sportscar marque.
This interview was included as part of a promotional film for the Ferrari F40, it’s one of the last interviews he ever gave – in fact I’ve been unable to find any video interview he did after this, meaning it could be the last one he gave before he passed away in 1988 at the age of 90.
