30 years ago, Ferrari showed the world the F40.
It was the first production car to hit the 200mph mark.
To celebrate, here are some of Enzo Ferrari’s greatest quotes…with hot girls.
“I don’t care if the door gaps are straight. When the driver steps on the gas, I want him to shit his pants.”
“The client is not always right.”
“I build engines and attach wheels to them.”
“What’s behind you doesn’t matter.”
“Aerodynamics are for people who can’t build engines.”
“The era of gentleman racing drivers is ended.”
“I have never gone on a real trip, never taken a holiday. The best holiday for me is spent in my workshops when nearly everybody else is on vacation.”
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
“I don’t sell cars; I sell engines. The cars I throw in for free since something has to hold the engines in.”
“You have to have courage to stand up to your critics.”
“Racing amuses me.”
Driving his cars: “Each time I seemed to be climbing into a roller coaster and finding myself coming through the down-hill run with that sort of dazed feeling that we all know.”
When someone questioned the quality of the brakes on his cars, Enzo responded…
“My cars are designed to GO, not STOP.”
“I have never met any man whom I thought altogether resembled me…but only because my faults are so enormous.”
“I believe most things can be said in a few lines.”
“The Ferrari is a dream—people dream of owning this special vehicle and for most people it will remain a dream apart from those lucky few.”
“Race cars are neither beautiful nor ugly. They become beautiful when they win.”
“I have yet to meet anyone quite so stubborn as myself and animated by this overpowering passion that leaves me no time for thought or anything else. I have, in fact, no interest in life outside racing cars.”
“One must keep working continuously; otherwise, one thinks of death.”
“No one remembers who took second place and that will never be me.”
Sylvester Stallone with the F40…Rambo knows best.
“Everyone dreams of driving a Ferrari, it was my intent from the start.”
“I want to build a car that’s faster than all of them, and then I want to die.” -Enzo Ferrari
