How Good are Ferrari Vehicles for Towing?

The distinctive red livery and the iconic prancing pony badge are both indicators of the premiere luxury sports car company in the world. Founded in 1929 by Enzo Ferrari this Italian based car company knows what it does and it does it very well.

Enzo originally intended to create road cars when he founded Scuderia Ferrari (Ferrari Stable) but quickly found himself supplying Alfa Romeo racing cars to gentleman drivers. Essentially they became the racing division for Alfa Romeo.

In 1933 Alfa Romeo pulled out their house-racing team so Ferrari had to field his own works team in order to keep competing. Just five years later Alfa Romeo stepped back in and hired Enzo to manage their new team temporarily disbanding Scuderia Ferrari.

In 1939 Enzo Ferrari left Alfa Romeo but was told upon leaving that he could not use the Ferrari name for four years in any subsequent businesses. A few days after leaving he founded Auto Avio Costruzioni which would mainly produce machine tools, and aircraft accessories.

As soon as he could use the Ferrari name again Scuderia Ferrari was reborn and road cars were not far behind. Enzo at this point wanted to stay in racing which was an expensive business so he realized he had to start making and selling cars. The first official Ferrari road car then was the 1947 125 S.

The Scuderia Ferrari name relates to the company's racing endeavors but the luxury sports car division exploded in popularity and is today considered one of the most elite in the world.

So does the company that was built on racing and was required to produce roads cars to fund that, offer anything for those looking to tow things? The answer to this may be disappointing but I would suggest hardly surprising.

It takes just a look at any Ferrari model to see how unlikely it is that they will be of any use in terms of towing capacity. The majority have very low ground clearance and have clearly not been designed to pull anything behind them.

These precision made high performance machines are meant for sport and speed and not utility. It would be very hard to find a model you can fit a tow bar to and the very act of trying to tow something would likely damage a very expensive machine.

You could always enquire with the dealership to see if any of their models offer a tow rating but one might imagine a confused look would be quickly followed by a “No, it’s a Ferrari.”
