Almost 1,000 luxury cars have converged at the Silverstone race circuit in Northamptonshire, England to break a Guinness World Record. Ferrari and the Ferrari Owners Club of Great Britain organized the attendance of 964 owners from around the world to challenge a 2008 record set in Japan with the gathering of 490 Ferraris.
At the Silverstone circuit, more than double the number of Ferraris which had gathered in Japan showed up. Ferrari officials proudly noted that the cars ranged in model across more than 40 years of production. Ferrari F1 team driver Felipe Massa led the parade, saying; “It was a really unforgettable experience. It’s a great honor for me to be here for such a special event, with so many cars all brought together on one race track, which produced an unprecedented spectacle for all Prancing Horse fans.”
The cars amassed on the 3.6 mile track in England represented a value of £100 million (approximately $62,490,000). Ferrari used the luxury gathering to raise funds for a good cause; for every car which took part, the company donated £5 to ‘BEN’, a charity for automotive industry workers.
