    Re: Vid: Ferrari prancing horse - know the history

    Copied from the official emblem of the City of Stuttgart. You can read about it in the Porsche Museum.

    Re: Vid: Ferrari prancing horse - know the history

    Thanks. I always knew about the orgins of the emblem, but never knew about its derivation from the Stuggart crest.

    Sidenote: Never knew about the 125s either. What an attractive little roadster. Too bad Ferrari doesn't take a modern reinterpretation of this car and launch it as a Boxster / Cayman fighter. At say $65-75,000 USD, it would sell like hot cakes.

    No, that's not the way that Ferrari puts things. The emblem dates back to the medieval times and was the insignia of an italian army regiment. Barraca took it from there and the rest is history.

     

    @Heist: I am glad that Ferrari does not produce such a car. Ferraris should be the absolute pinnacle of motoring. An affordable Ferrari is a contradiction in terms and something that should never happen.

    Re: Vid: Ferrari prancing horse - know the history

    I'm not an Italian history expert but I don't recall there being a national Italian Army in medieval times. AFAIK each city had its own army and its own ruling family.

    The city of Stuttgart's emblem is a medieval heraldic symbol. Apparently the prancing horse was copied when a German aeroplane was shot down during WW1.

    I don't know which version of history is correct ... so I can't comment further.

    But these things are less important .... it's the metal that matters kiss

    The italian unification happened 150 years ago. It was the emblem of an italian city-state army regiment though. I tend to believe this version.

    Hi

    The "Cavallino Rampante"  derives from the "Reggimento Piemonte Reale Cavalleria" 2°  badge  that the italian aviator Francesco Baracca put on his plane and that his parents later donated to Enzo Ferrari (in 1922) . The original prancing horse was however white on a red background.

    Enzo Ferrari applied first time the prancing horse on July 9th on the 24 hours of Spa on an Alfa Romeo

    Re: Vid: Ferrari prancing horse - know the history

    It seems odd that Enzo would have used an emblem from Suttgart over in Italy. Perhaps this story was confused with where Porsche got their logos horse from...

    Either way, this historic stuff is quite interesting!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
