 at Ferrari Marks its 70th Anniversary with 125S/LaFerrari Tribute

2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the most charismatic, the most important, the coolest car maker of them all: Ferrari. So as you would expect, they are going to do a whole bunch of stuff celebrating the event. In fact it’s already begun with this special livery package, and continues with the awesome video you are about to see.
