2022 Model Anniversaries - News

A selection of the world's most famous and storied manufacturers are celebrating important birthdays of their iconic models in 2022. The likes of Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche and Lancia have all built some wonderful cars over the years, and it's only fitting that we celebrate them for what they've given to the motoring community. Here at TrackDays.co.uk, we'll be walking you through some of the models that will be blowing out the candles in 2022.

  • Ferrari Enzo – 20th Anniversary

Developed in 2002, to honour the founding father of the famed Maranello brand, Enzo Ferrari, this mid-engine 6.0 litre V12 supercar was built using Formula One (F1) technology.

Using a carbon fibre shell, as well as innovations such as F1-style manual-automated shifting, the Enzo will get you up to 60 mph in just over three seconds.

The car has infamously divided opinions however, with many enthusiasts and motoring journalists saying the Enzo is one of the ugliest Ferraris ever made, making claims that the Ferrari racing team went too far against the grain in design regardless of the impressive performance that the car holds.

  • McLaren F1 – 30th Anniversary

One of the most celebrated feats of engineering is celebrating its 30th birthday in 2022. The McLaren F1 is a perfect example of what can be achieved with minimal restriction and maximum ingenuity.

Only 106 models were built in its six year production life, and the impact it has on popular culture was seismic to say the least. The race version of the car even won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans - one of the world's most prestigious motor races.

Reaching a staggering 231 mph, the McLaren F1 still remains the fastest naturally aspirated car ever made. And with the introduction of more and more turbo hybrid and even electric cars, it's a record that will likely never be broken.

  • Porsche 944 – 40th Anniversary

Porsche, the German car giant from Stuttgart, has a known formula for the design of its modern cars. The iconic rear-engine with the sloped body has become synonymous with the manufacturer, but there have been some instances where they bucked the trend.

In 1982, Porsche unveiled the 944 – a front engine coupe roadster. At first glance you'd have no idea who built such a car, but there are still some unmistakable Porsche hallmarks that give it that classic German feel, such as the minimalist interior.

  • Lancia Stratos – 50th Anniversary

One of the greatest rally cars of all time is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. The evergreen Lancia Stratos won the World Rally Championship for three consecutive years from 1974 to 1976.

Known for its short wheelbase and excellent road handling, the agile Stratos offered high end performance in a compact form.

The car continues to build a large cult following to this day, with thousands of people flocking to car shows around the world to celebrate this once in a generation feat of Italian engineering.
