Ferrari cars are also famous for their exclusivity, so much so that the company has decided to limit production to maintain this characteristic.
With regard to color, since the 1920s Italian racing cars were painted red. This was the usual color for Italian cars competing in car championships on the basis of a measure taken in the years between the two world wars by the association which was later called FIA. In the federation scheme, among others, French cars were blue, Germans white and British green.
The hue of the red gradually changed from a dark red to a noticeably brighter hue, known as «Corsa red». This coloring has remained unchanged for the standard Ferraris, while for the Formula 1 ones after the acquisition by the Fiat Group there have been variations in the shades of red, desired by the various sponsors.
