Second, global sales
Ferrari is the number one car in the world. In 2016, the company sold nearly 6,000 Ferraris. At the same time, McLaren has only more than 1,000 vehicles.

Ferrari is twice as big as Ferrari.
Third, brand value
We are one of the Fortune 500 brands sponsored by British Brand Finance. In 2017, Ferrari ranked 15th. To be honest, Hogo thinks Ferrari is low because he knows Ferrari is the best in the world in 2014. McLaren’s car is only ranked 80th.

In Hogo’s view, Ferrari is basically the boss and second child of the sports car industry, and the value of Porsche is also very close. McLaren is even behind, closer to Aston Martin.
In 1969, Ferrari sold itself to the Fiat Group, provided that Fiat did not interfere with any of Ferrari’s racing business. Ferrari has its own brand and Fiat has a majority stake.
In short, Ferrari receives tens of millions of dollars in research and development funds from Fiat each year, basically independent of Fiat operations.
This is what McLaren can’t do. In 2015, Ferrari officially went public. The company’s market value at the end of last year was $18.2 billion, or $74 per share. Through the capital market and the Fiat Group, Ferrari has sufficient research and development capabilities.
