There are many aspects of the automotive industries that affect nature and the world in general. One car company in particular holds great respect and admiration in both the eyes of other automotive professionals as well as drivers of all classes. Ferrari was a dream developed in 1929 his goal was to make the world best sports car. Through innovative design, flawless craftsmanship, and a true love for the game he succeeded in creating a car company that is today the most revered in all the world.
Enzo Ferrari was born in 1898 in Modena, Italy. His father Alfredo Ferrari operated a local metal fabricating company, and when Enzo and his brother Alfredo Jr. were old enough there father took them to there first auto race in Bologna. That sparked his love for racing and cars. In 1919 he given a job for a small car company in Italy called CMN. At this company he made small leaps and bounds. He was a simple racer that had extreme potential but the equipment was not as good and the chances of him making it far were very small. The next step in his journey he was given an opportunity by his friend that worked for Alfa Romeo and he was given a position as a racer. He was able to successfully make second place in the Targa Florio which is a prestigious race held in Italy and attendance is by invitation only. After he had his fill with racing he became a member of the Alfa Romeo pit crew where he learned much more about cars and the art of their creation. This is where he began his stride into his own new firm which was so rightfully named Ferrari.
Ferrari’s first innovation in the automotive industry came in its design. Enzo teamed up with a long time friend Battista “Pinin” Farina they came together and designed the first Ferrari P3 and as soon as it came out it was a championship car. It was the Targa Florio and the Milli Milia in its first year of production. Ferrari’s main focus in his education was in the field of Aerodynamics; with his ideas and Farina’s facilities they were able to continue to make breakthroughs in design and technology that would continue to take the name Ferrari to the top. To this day Pinin Farina continues to create breakthrough designs for Ferrari.
The aspect of design that makes Ferrari stand out as it does is its building techniques. All Ferraris are hand built and in that aspect they are taken to a whole new standard. They are built piece by piece and then slowly put together. Ferrari only puts together a certain amount of cars per year. Particular designs have to be built by order and others are built by popularity. Because of the small numbers produced per year they are considered far more valuable. The company strives to bring nothing but perfection to there customers and show them an experience brought forth by tradition every time they find themselves behind the wheel.
The engine of the traditional Ferrari is also hand built and held to the highest testing standard. They are made to reach high speeds and using the most advanced yet simple engineering techniques they make it all happen. There are three basic types of engines that the company uses in its cars; six cylinders, eight cylinders, and twelve cylinders. These engine types are available to all car manufacturers but only Ferrari and a few other select automotive car companies have been able to push such power in there vehicles over the centuries of there existence. The only considerable set back that this car causes that would be considered undesirable to some people would be one the car is extremely loud no one has really taken the time to figure out exactly how loud the car can be but to the owners and people that appreciate the art that is Ferrari. The second and slightly more consequential of the two is the amount of gas the car consumes, it goes about twelve to thirteen miles to the gallon and considering it’s a small tank there are a lot of stops the owner must take to

Bad ChoosersBad Choosers By K.L. Casado The tired cliché has rung throughout the halls of maternity wards and law firms for years. The Battle of the Sexes as it is called; the everlasting struggle for supremacy among men and women. However, in the wider scope of events, how easy one\'s life is would ideally be more important than how supreme one is. Just ask Colin Powell or maybe even a reincarnate Kurt Cobain. It does not matter much if you\'re the top dog if your a top dog with an uncomfortable life. Ma
