The idea of creating a biopic about the car tycoon was born by Michael Mann back in the mid-1990s. As the director said in an interview with Vulture, then work on the film was suspended due to the lack of sufficient funding and not a fully thought-out script.

"Also, I came up with the idea of doing Piero (Ferrari. — RT) is the final point of this story, and ultimately to dedicate the plot to his fate. Once I made that decision, I rewrote his scenes in the film and used them as a value system that made it clear how each scene should unfold. In the '90s, when Sydney Pollack and I were working on this story, it wasn't in the script," the director said.

Mann also clarified that during the production of the film, the team was largely assisted by Piero Ferrari, Enzo's son from his mistress Lina Lardi. According to the director, the businessman brought a lot of valuable ideas to the plot, shared some details about his father.

"Adam Driver looks very authoritative, playing the role of a man a few years older than himself. Ferrari's character is somewhat reminiscent of Lermontov, who is obsessed with the dancing impresario from the classic film The Red Shoes. Like Lermontov, Ferrari is a man with inherent elegance. Even the barely noticeable tummy that Driver has for this role seems to be a significant detail. But Cruz almost surpasses him in sophistication and passion [in terms of acting]," the critic explained on's website.
