The show starts with an exact replica of the first Ferrari car ever made. Created in 1947, when the Italian economy was damaged from the second world war, the Ferrari 125 S marked an achievement in history. The rosso-corsa-red race car sported a 1.5-litre V12 engine producing around 118 horsepower, and could reach speeds of up to 130 miles per hour.
