Festivals of Speed Returns to Ritz-Carlton Orlando, December 3, 2017

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – March 12th, 1947 was the date that founder Enzo Ferrari started the engine of a 125 S, the first vehicle to bear his name. Seventy years later Festivals of Speed will be celebrating these and other achievements by organizing special displays featuring some of the world’s most powerful and elegant Ferrari sports cars. Both vintage and contemporary examples will be on display.

Examples include but are not limited to Ferrari La Ferrari, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari 275 as well as many others.

Festivals of Speed

Festivals of Speed, which for the last fourteen years has showcased the world’s most exotic automobiles, motorcycles, aircraft, watercraft and luxury brands throughout Florida, has decided to join the celebration by featuring the brand at both the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes and the Diplomat Golf & Tennis Club event in Hallandale, Florida. Company founder Joe Sabatini had this to say, “Ferrari has always had a special place in our heart at Festivals of Speed. With their rise from the ashes of world war II to what we all know it as today is an incredible and inspiring story.” Special displays will be set in place at both event venues to show the history behind this vaunted manufacturer. Both vintage and contemporary examples of Ferrari cars will be displayed on the pristine lawns and gardens of the Ritz-Carlton and on the elegant fairways of the Diplomat Golf & tennis Club. Festivals of speed invites all Ferrari owners to participate at both events.

Another featured attraction will be a display of Porsche 928 vehicles. The 928 celebrates its 40-year anniversary this year. The 928 was quite revolutionary when it was first unveiled back in the late 1970s, with an extensive use of aluminum body panels and engine, along with cutting edge technology used throughout the design, together with its near perfect weight distribution and stunning road holding and grip, the 928 was certainly a welcome vehicle to the Porsche lineup.
