- 70 years of Ferrari and 45 Ferrari V12 models honoured by JBR Capital
- Steve McQueen, Justin Bieber and the Pope among V12 celebrity owners
In celebration of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary year, JBR Capital – the UK’s only independent finance provider dedicated to high end vehicle finance – has produced a guide to the star-studded life of Ferrari’s legendary V12 engine: https://jbrcapital.com/ferrari-finance/v12-ferraris-the-engine-that-made-ferrari/.
The V12 had it all – cutting edge technology, race wins, plus a home in the most glamorous and sought-after road cars Ferrari ever built.
From the 250 GTO to the Enzo, Ferrari V12s have long been a favourite with celebrities – owned by numerous musicians, actors and footballers, as well as appearing in a whole host of films, TV shows, commercials and advertisements.
Beatles band member John Lennon purchased a Ferrari 330 GT, in 1965, the day after passing his driving test. Steve McQueen – the king of cool – received a Ferrari 250 Lusso as a 34th birthday present from his wife. Meanwhile, Sylvester Stallone, David Beckham, Justin Bieber and even the Pope also feature on JBR Capital’s list of the most-famous Ferrari V12 owners.
Classic films from the 1960s onwards include highly-memorable cameos and starring-roles from the V12. Two Ferrari 250 GT Berlinettas raced Disney’s much-loved Volkswagen Beetle, Herbie, in The Love Bug (1968), as a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT also took the lead role in the unforgettable American teen comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986).
