Whenever one thinks of Ferrari, the colors that come to one’s mind are red and yellow. Most people associate red as the original Ferrari color. However, only few are aware that the original color of Ferrari was yellow. Ferrari’s founder, Enzo Ferrari, was from the city of Modena and yellow was the color of the city and hence became the original Ferrari color as well.
