From the 50s:
"Enzo Ferrari was only building a handful of road cars every year, primarily as a grudging means of financing his beloved racing team. Most shared the same basic chassis and engine with the racers, but were clothed in bespoke coachwork by outside firms, which led more than one buyer to complain to Mr. Ferrari that his cars weren’t fully developed.
I only sell you the engine,” was his haughty reply, “the rest you get for free.”"

I hope it's a hell of a lot better than "Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend" was.

Woman even pointing a loaded gun at Enzo? LOL
It's Maserati vs Ferrari even to the death, no FIA rules here.

Otherwise it will be "Ferrori".

But with Michael Mann in the director's seat, it's bound to be good stuff.

Ferruccio and Enzo didn't get along because of hurt feelings.

"How the Lamborghini supercar began with a tractor and an insult
CBC Radio Posted: Apr 14, 2022 9:30 AM EDT | Last Updated: April 14, 2022
https://www.cbc.ca/radio/undertheinf...sult-1.6419560
The word "Lamborghini" probably conjures up a very specific image in your mind. It is one of the world's most famous supercars, born of Italian craftsmanship and a love of speed. But the true origin of the supercar began with a tractor part and an insult.
Ferruccio Lamborghini made a fortune manufacturing tractors. He served in the Italian Air Force mechanics corps and was gifted at fixing engines. After the war in 1945, he salvaged army surplus left behind by the Allied Forces and began building tractors in his small garage.
Soon, the demand for his powerful Lamborghini tractors became so great, he opened up a factory and became one of the largest agricultural equipment manufacturers in Italy. That success led to a second company manufacturing heating units and air conditioning systems. Ferruccio Lamborghini became one of the wealthiest men in the country.
Mr. Lamborghini could afford anything he wanted, and one of his passions was cars.
He owned a Jaguar, a Maserati, a top-end Mercedes and two Ferraris — a white one for him and a black one for his wife. But the Ferrari's clutches kept giving him trouble and needed constant repair at the Ferrari factory.
The problem kept recurring, so Lamborghini had his own tractor mechanics take a look at it. As it turns out, Ferrari was using the same clutch component as he used in his tractors. Lamborghini was outraged. He paid 10 lire for his tractor clutches, yet Ferrari charged him 1000 lire for the same part. And Lamborghini was appalled that beautiful Ferraris were actually built with tractor parts.
With that discovery, he raced to Ferrari's head office and demanded to speak to founder Enzo Ferrari himself. When he lodged his complaint, Enzo Ferrari yelled back at Lamborghini, saying the problem wasn't the car, it was the driver. He told Lamborghini to go back to his tractors and leave him alone.
That insult inspired Ferruccio Lamborghini to build his own high-end sports car.
He built a factory, hired away some of Ferrari's mechanics and engineers and designed a luxurious, high-speed car that could reach speeds of 240 km/h.
The first model rolled out of his factory in 1963 and was christened the Lambourghini 350 GT. Lamborghini chose his zodiac sign — Taurus the bull — as the logo for his new car. That day, a fierce rivalry between Ferrari and Lamborghini began that would last for decades.
And that is the origin story of Lamborghinis. It was a supercar born of a 10 lire tractor part and an insult."

A skillful biopic with clean lines and performances but lacks a more pondered emotional focus in its performance-driven character study.

Where did you see the movie to know this ? 80th Venice International Film Festival last August ? It's scheduled to be premiered in the US on Christmas day. Or did you get that from https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/ferrari_2023 ?
