Buckle Up: Watch The Official “FERRARI” Teaser Trailer Starring Adam Driver
With the release of the teaser trailer for the upcoming Enzo Ferrari biopic, Ferrari, the energy being exuded from the initial footage is nothing short of intense. The sounds of roaring engines, speeding race cars, shifting gears, an emotionally charged soundtrack building in the background, and the only line of dialogue shown in the trailer may perfectly summarize exactly what kind of wild ride audiences are in for:
“If you get into one of my cars, you get in to win.”
Starring Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as the race car driver/auto mogul Enzo Ferrari, and directed by Michael Mann (Heat, The Insider, The Last of the Mohicans) the film is based the book Enzo Ferrari: The Man and the Machine by Brock Yates.
The film also features Penélope Cruz as Enzo’s wife and CFO, Laura Ferrari; Shailene Woodley as Enzo’s mistress, Lina Lardi; Patrick Dempsey (who is both an actor and race car driver in real life) as Formula 1 racer Piero Taruffi; and Gabriel Leone as Spanish Formula 1 racer Alfonso de Portago.

According to the film’s official description from NEON, “Ferrari is set during the summer of 1957. Behind the spectacle and danger of 1950’s Formula 1, ex-racer, Enzo Ferrari, is in crisis. Bankruptcy stalks the company he and his wife, Laura, built from nothing ten years earlier. Their tempestuous marriage struggles with the mourning for their one son. Ferrari struggles with the acknowledgment of another. His drivers’ lust to win pushes them out to the edge. He wagers all in a roll of the dice on one race, the treacherous 1,000-mile race across Italy, the iconic Mille Miglia.”
Due out in theaters on Christmas day, Mann describes Ferrari as an “operatic melodrama.” The biopic touches down on nearly every major chaotic moment of Ferrari’s life, and how it shaped him into one of the greatest automotive pioneers of his time.
