The featured cars
- Ferrari 500, 1952
Conceived by Ferrari’s chief designer Aurelio Lampredi, the beautifully elegant Tip 500 was a formidably effective tool in the hands of the great Alberto Ascari. Bar two non-championship events, it won every race it was entered into in 1952, securing the world championship for Ascari.
- Ferrari 312, 1967
The V12-engined 312 was the staple for Ferrari’s Formula One campaign in the late 1960s, and the driver roll call of the Mauro Forghieri-designed racer included such hallowed names as Chris Amon, Lorenzo Bandini, Jacky Ickx and John Surtees.
- Ferrari 312B, 1970
With its powerful ‘flat 12’ engine, which significantly lowered its centre of gravity, the 312B was driven to its limits by Jacky Ickx and Clay Ragazzoni, who together claimed enough points for Ferrari to push challengers Lotus aside and win the 1970 Constructors’ Championship.
- Ferrari F300, 1998
Rory Byrne designed the F300 that took Michael Schumacher head to head with Mika Häkkinen’s McLaren MP4/13 in the fiercely fought 1998 season. Although Ferrari and Schumacher finished second overall that year, the F300 was the start of Ferrari’s dominance of the following seasons.
- Ferrari F2003GA, 2003
Named in honour of Gianni Agnelli, the recently deceased patriarch of the Fiat Empire, the F2003 not only brought Ferrari the Constructors’ title, but also gave Michael Schumacher his sixth championship title, breaking the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio’s 46-year-old record.
