His mother was Enzo's mistress, Lina Lardi. As divorce was illegal in Italy until 1975, he could not be acknowledged as a Ferrari family member until the death of Enzo's wife, Laura, in 1978.

In 1988, as the sole heir of the Ferrari family, he was nominated Vice Chairman following his father's death. In 1998 he was nominated president of Piaggio Aereo Engineering.
Ferrari was awarded the title of Cavaliere del Lavoro in 2004. He also possesses a degree in engineering from the Modena University. He is married to Floriana Nalin and has a daughter and two grandchildren. He lives in Modena in his father's old residence.
