In the name of passion, in pursuit of pure speed. At the center of it all is a titanic man – complex and multifaceted – who devoted his genius to the mission of building the fastest racing car in history. Enzo Ferrari: his name became a boast, an aspiration, and ultimately a legend. But there was a trail of tragedy and torment along the way. Between 1956 and 1961, deeply hurt by the tragic death of his eldest son Dino and by what he saw as betrayal by his main driver Juan Manuel Fangio, Enzo Ferrari rebuilt his racing stable from scratch, selecting five promising rising stars of motor racing to battle it out. For victory.”
