Happy 70th Birthday Ferrari - With Love From Leeds
Andy Harris, Motoring and Property Editor
How fast? 812 Superfast unveiled.
JCT600 Brooklands, the official Ferrari dealership for Leeds, celebrated the 70th birthday of the coveted Prancing Horse in style on Friday 4th August 2017 when more than 70 Ferrari cars were on display in Roundhay Park for the public to enjoy, in what was certainly the largest display of Ferrari vehicles ever to take place in the city.

In March 1947, the first car to bear the name of company founder Enzo Ferrari came out of the Maranello factory, and JCT600 Brooklands marked the 70th anniversary by inviting proud owners from all over Yorkshire to gather in the Lakeside car park at Roundhay Park where the cars were on display to the public from 4.00-6.00pm.

Warm summer sun bathed the event and the enthusiastic crowd used the opportunity to take some photographs and chat to the owners.

The Italian sports cars spectacle included Ferrari's anniversary model, La Ferrari Aperta, which is a limited-edition with only 200 to be made plus an additional nine specially made for the 70th anniversary celebrations.

At six o'clock, La Ferrari Aperta and the 70 Ferrari cars then made their way through Leeds to Elland Road Football Ground where they formed a parade led by La Ferrari Aperta and drove to the JCT600 Brooklands showroom in Lower Wortley.

The parade was followed by the unveiling of the prestigious car marque's latest model, the 812 Superfast at the JCT600 Brooklands showroom, at a private client event for invited guests only, presented by Tom Clarkson F1 presenter.

John Tordoff, chief executive of JCT600, said:

"Having celebrated our own 70th anniversary last year, we appreciate what an amazing milestone this is and send our warm congratulations to Ferrari. We've enjoyed a great partnership with the prestigious mark for the last 35 years and it remains one of our flagship brands, enduringly popular with our customers in the region and beyond."

The 70 Ferrari cars gather in Roundhay Park.
David Clapham, JCT600 Brooklands brand director for Ferrari, adds:

"Seeing more than 70 of the world's most sought-after and beautiful Italian sports cars parade through Leeds was an incredible sight and a really memorable tribute to 70 years of the Prancing Horse. It was a great opportunity for hundreds of people enjoy this amazing spectacle - they're unlikely to ever again see so many Ferrari supercars together in one place!"
