Inside Ferrari's Unrivaled Car Collection

The iconic Ferrari will start trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Oct. 21 as parent company Fiat Chrysler aims to sell 10 percent of the company to investors. The maker of models like the Testarossa, GTO and the 1 million-euro hybrid LaFerrari will be fully separated from the Italian-American carmaker by the beginning of 2016. The sale is part of a plan by Chairman Sergio Marchionne to raise cash for Fiat Chrysler and allow Ferrari to become a fully fledged luxury goods company. The brand was founded in Maranello, a small town in Northern Italy, by former race driver Enzo Ferrari. And since 1947, all of its cars have been made at a plant there, where Ferrari also owns a museum. Photographs by Marc Hill for Bloomberg
