Ferrari's rivalry with Lamborghini goes back to Lamborghini's origins. Ferruccio Lamborghini created Lamborghini tired of traveling to Maranello to repair his sports cars... coming to be rebuked by Enzo Ferrari: "a tractor manufacturer cannot understand the complexity of a Ferrari".

Its insignia, the Ferrari logo , is a black rampant horse on a yellow background, the “prancing horse” . This emblem, one of the most recognized in the world, arose in 1923 when the then driver Enzo Ferrari won a race at the Savio circuit where he met Countess Paolina, mother of Francesco Baracca , a count who during World War I He became famous as an aviator and decorated his planes with a horse. 

The yellow color of the Ferrari emblem is a tribute to the city of Modena, the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari and the classic red color of its cars, the color with which we automatically associate Ferrari, is the result of the assignment of the International Federation of the Automobile for Italian cars that participated in great prizes.
