Ferrari hoped to re-break the Guinness World Record for the largest ever parade of Ferrari road cars during the recent World Finals at Daytona International Speedway – but the automaker unfortunately fell a miniscule 155 cars short.
A total of 805 Ferraris lined up on the 3.56-mile oval at Daytona, which was only enough for second place in the world of large Ferrari parades. The largest-ever parade of Ferraris saw 964 cars gather during the 2012 Ferrari Race Day at Silverstone, which eclipsed the previous record of 490 cars set in Japan.
The parade was a bit of a disaster, according to Yahoo. Because there were so many cars participating, drivers were forced to creep along at around 4 mph. This resulted in “multiple casualties,” thanks to “– “dead batteries, overheated engines, cooked clutches,” and other issues.
Despite the fact that cars were broken instead of a record, we remain confident that watching 804 Ferraris lap one of the most legendary raceways in America was a sight to behold. Maybe they can try it again next year at the 2017 Ferrari World Finals.
