No matter how old a vintage car gets the respect and grace of it remain the same. Vintage collections always remind one of the great inspirations which have lead to the formation of their favorite sports car or a luxury vehicle. Well today we will talk about one of the most important vintage cars of all time. There are quite a lot of fans of Ferrari these days, keeping with them the information of all the latest cars. But as a true fan they should also know where all this started from. The starting pride or race horse by Ferrari was called the Ferrari 125 S. This was the first ever vehicle to be produced under the name of Ferrari. It was built as a sports car. Even at that time the design was an eye popper. The body was designed like a canoe. With sleek and smooth curves the Ferrari easily became every racer’s dream. At such an early time the Ferrari 125 S came with beautiful air intakes with chrome head lights. Wind deflectors were used instead of a wind shield making it quite aerodynamic. The tires had been added with hydraulic drum brakes supported by a double wishbone.
The engine of the Ferrari 125 S is a 1.5 L (making up to 1497 cc) V12 capable of producing 100 hp at 7000 RPM. This is done with a compression ratio of 8.5:1. It was a dual overhead camshaft engine which was used for the 125 S. only a few time after the release the 125 S enabled Cortese to win a Grand Prix. With such a chassis and performance skills the Ferrari 125 S won six of its fourteen races. Well that’s how the Italian race horse came into business. And this car lead to all the luxurious machines we see today. Ciao!
