Ferrari found its way back into the Guinness Book of World Records earlier this week, setting a record for the largest parade of Ferrari cars.

The official count from the Guinness Book of World Records stated that 964 Ferraris were a part of the parade the U.K.'s Silverstone circuit.

AutoBlog claims that Ferrari previously held events establishing the world record five years ago, and again a year after that. The first event was held in 2007 at Silverstone when 385 vehicles took part, and in 2008 490 cars participated at Japan's Fuji Speedway track.

Factory Formula One racer Felipe Massa led the way in a 458 Spider.

"It was a really unforgettable experience," Massa said to the World Record Academy. "It's a great honor for me to be here for such a special event, with so many cars all brought together on one race track, which produced an unprecedented spectacle for all Prancing Horse fans."

Over $162 million worth of vehicles were present together on the track, with a combined 3,856 tires and 493,150 horsepower. Ferrari donated money to a British charity supporting autoworkers for each of the 964 vehicles that took part.
