The record for the longest parade of Ferrari models was set back in 2007 when 385 examples lapped Silverstone at the same time. That record was broken with 490 cars sometime thereafter, but the Maranello automaker's London-based unit is gearing up to shatter the record once again.

So far, Ferrrari North Europe has registered a whopping 600 cars to participate in the event during the Ferrari Racing Days event at Silverstone. That would be enough to take back the record on its own, but the organizers are hopping to attract another 400 participants over the next few months to make it a nice, round 1000 vehicles.

That'll set the bar high enough when the event takes place on September 15, but to see what the previous run of 385 cars looks like, take a stroll through the high-resolution image gallery above.

OVER 600 FERRARIS REGISTERED FOR "LARGEST PARADE OF FERRARI CARS"

London, 18 June 2012. Ferrari North Europe is on target to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Parade of Ferrari Cars with over 600 cars registered for the attempt at 18:00 on Saturday 15th September during Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone Circuit.

Ferrari North Europe previously set the record with an astonishing 385 cars on the Silverstone Circuit at the Ferrari Racing Days in 2007. However, the record now stands at 490 cars. Even though over 600 cars have registered in the first month since this attempt was announced, Ferrari North Europe's ambition is to set a Guinness World Record with 1000 cars. Therefore, registrations remain open for the final 400 spaces.

This outstanding interest is thanks to the support from the Ferrari Owners Club and Ferrari enthusiasts all over the UK and abroad and will create what promises to be an absolutely memorable spectacle – Silverstone turned Rosso Corsa. In addition, Ferrari will be donating £5 for every car entered into the world record attempt to BEN, the automotive industry's own charity (www.ben.org.uk).

Ferrari Racing Days, held at Silverstone Circuit 15-16 September, is the only motor racing event in the UK where Ferrari fans will see the ultra-exclusive FXX and 599XX development cars on track, or a wide range of historic Ferrari F1 cars from the F1 Clienti department, together with a packed schedule of races from the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli and the Ferrari Club Challenge.

Advanced weekend tickets are available for only £15 per person, with children (aged 15 years and under) free of charge. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the event for £15 per day and £20 for the weekend per person.

      now that everybody can afford cars far past their ability to drive them, Ferrari needs to look back to their days of truly unobtainable speed and wrecklessness. The beauty of the marque lies not in money - it revolves around dream and pursuit. Seeing so many gorgeous machines driven in a slow parade, by "careful" people - it seems so directly opposite of my childhood memories of the fabulous and deadly spectacle it once was. Almost like a caricature of itself.

      All they'd need is a few Chris Evans' to show up and they'd be all set! http://www.topgear.com/uk/photos/chris-evans-ferrari

      What if you were the 1001st Ferrari owner to register? Would they say "**** off" or just not include you in the tally? Let's see if anyone can slip in with a rebodied Fiero, or even one of the heavily disguised Corollas I have seen on the internet prancing around as an F430. I hope nobody screws up and turns part of a 1000 Ferrari parade into a 100 shot gallery at wreckedexotics.com. That kind of stuff does happen when you cram lots of supercars together and they forget the part in "parade" where you don't actually race.

        Answer: they should book you in case some one of the first 1000 turns up with a body kit, smoked tails, or a gold wrap, and must therefore be excluded from the event.

      Okay, I'm all for signature colors/liveries as the next guy; I love a silver 911, a white/blue striped Shelby, a blue/white striped Viper, a Giallo Orion/Atlas Lambo, etc, but never has there been such a cookie-cutter, me-too combo as Ferrari's Rosso Corsa over tan. It. Is. Played. Out. History or tradition be damned. And that's coming from someone who doesn't live somewhere where I'd see Ferraris often. There's a handful in my town, and shockingly, only two of them are red. A 348 Spider and a 308. And I don't give either of which a passing glance. I honestly think it cheapens the car by making it much, much less exclusive and rare. Sorry, but if I'm laying down well over $200 grand on a car, it's not going to be one in the color 4 out of 5 are sold in. End rant. Give me that black 360 Modena CS, that guy's doing it right....

        Then clearly you don't know what you are talking about. My buddy just got a 430 Spider in that exact color combination and I will tell you that red is so deep and amazing there should be no other color then that. He had a black 360 before and that was nowhere near as amazing as the red. There is another guy with a grey 430 and that is a nice color too, better than the black but nothing like the red. Another friend has a purplish blue 355 and that is a nice color too, better than the black but once again nothing like the red. And the tan leather is a work of art. It is absolutely gorgeous and flawless. There is a reason Ferrari owners keep picking those colors, it is because they look amazing.
