The sound of Ferrari: The ultimate symphony?

If you love classical music like we do, there is nothing better than hearing the works of the great composers in history, such as Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Handel, Chopin, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, et al. The masterful works produced by such musical geniuses are second to none – audio nirvana for the human ears…the ultimate symphonies…

Or maybe not?…

The “composers” from Maranello, Italy might have something to say about this! Yes, you heard that right. Enter Ferrari S.p.A., also known simply as Ferrari. Well, they’ve certainly produced some “compositions” that will rival anything from the “Classical Era” – perhaps, dare we say, even BETTER?

Not convinced? Ok, we’ll let you decide. Here’s a classic video commercial from
Shell Oil, who has a long history of partnership with Ferrari (they even have similar colors!). This video was made in 2007 to celebrate Ferrari’s 60th anniversary and to highlight Shell’s long-standing Formula One relationship with Ferrari. Reportedly costing $3.9 million to produce, this 2-minute commercial features some of Ferrari’s most famous race cars driving flat-out through the streets of Rome, Monaco, Rio, New York City, and Hong Kong.

Listen to the symphonies emanating from these Ferrari engines and let’s compare “notes” (Mozart, are you listening?):

Editor’s note: And for some added fun, here’s a neat idea we came across and credit to the person who suggested this. After listening/watching the video above, try watching it again while simultaneously playing the music below. The music seems perfectly in rhythm with the Ferrari engines…like a well-orchestrated symphony, of course! 😉
