Since 1947, when the first Ferrari road car rolled out the gates of Maranello filled with Shell fuels and lubricants, every vehicle produced in the famed factory has been powered and protected by Shell.

This year, Shell joins Ferrari in celebrating its 70th anniversary as a manufacturer of the world’s most charismatic and desirable road cars. The Shell Innovation Partnership with Ferrari is today, one of the most respected and recognised in the world of motoring, and one of the most decorated and celebrated in the world of motorsport.
