We're just a few months from the Ferrari release date, with Adam Driver in the title role of the famed motoring entrepreneur. Here's what you need to know.

Ferrari release date - Adam Driver as Enzo Ferrari

What is the Ferrari release date? A new movie from Michael Mann is always worth getting excited about. When you’ve made Heat, you pretty much get a free pass for the rest of your career. His latest movie tells the story of a motoring legend, so we’re getting our driving gloves at the ready.

Ferrari is a biopic based on the life of Enzo Ferrari who founded the car company… well, it’s Ferrari, obviously. Adam Driver has stepped into some very odd-looking prosthetics to play the man behind the title and it was one of the most exciting new movies to premiere at the 2023 Venice Film Festival. Oscars, perhaps, beckon for Driver and Mann next year.

With such great pedigree on both sides of the camera, Ferrari has the ingredients to be among the best movies of 2023. So let’s fasten our seatbelts, floor that gas pedal, and reveal everything we know about the Ferrari release date, as well as the rest of the talented cast assembling alongside Driver.

What is Ferrari about?

The Ferrari plot follows Enzo as he battles to save his company from bankruptcy by making a big gamble on a prestigious Italian race.

The movie depicts Enzo during his years of middle age as he seeks to turn Ferrari’s fortunes around by focusing on the racing division and, in particular, the 1,000-mile Mille Miglia race. Based on the trailer, we know there will be plenty of high-octane racing sequences.

As well as the action on the track and in the boardroom, the movie will deal with the complex marriage between Enzo and Laura, as well as the death of their son.
