Encapsulating the dream
In the 90 years since Enzo Ferrari set up shop in Modena and began racing Alfa Romeos under the banner of the Società Anonima Scuderia Ferrari, his eponymous team has racked up an unequalled 31 Formula 1 world titles, and that’s before you count the nine victories outright Le Mans victories. The new exhibition, aptly titled 90 Years, tells the entire story of the illustrious Scuderia and showcases its most important cars, from the very first Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Spider to bear the Prancing Horse back in 1932 to the hybrid Ferrari SF71H in which Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen contested the 2018 Formula 1 season.
Each car encapsulates Enzo Ferrari’s dream, commitment, determination, and passion for motorsport. Other standout scarlet machines include the Ferrari 500 F2 in which Alberto Ascari won the titles in 1952 and ’53; John Surtees’ 1963 championship-winning 156 F1; Niki Lauda’s first title-winning Ferrari, the formidable 312 T from 1975; and the F2004 in which Michael Schumacher vanquished the opposition in 2004, claiming 13 victories, six of which he took consecutively. The 90 Years exhibition will be shown at the Ferrari Museum in Modena until May 2020.
