Ferrari is a subtheme of the Racers theme introduced since 2004. It is a theme based on the real Ferrari cars with different scales. TECHNIC cars and System cars are included in this theme. Sets involving Ferrari racing events are included as well. From 2008, tiny turbo scale Ferrari sets were released.
However, there were Ferrari LEGO products before 2004. Early in 1997, a Model Team promotional set with Shell (2556 Ferrari Formula 1 Racing Car) was released in 1997. In 1999, 2 promotional sets with Shell (1253, 1255) included Ferrari cars as well.
