CELEBRATING FERRARI THROUGH THE YEARS
THE ICON 147 125S
FIRST FERRARI EVERY BUILT
This was the very first car to wear the Ferrari badge. The V12 engine was designed by Gioacchino Colombo with contributions from Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi. Sport and competition versions of the 125 S were built with different bodywork although the chassis and running gear of the cars remained basically identical.
The 125 S’s debut on the Piacenza circuit was, in the words of Enzo Ferrari himself, “a promising failure.” In fact, Franco Cortese had to pull out because of a problem with the fuel pump while leading the race. However, over the following four months, the 125 S was back on the track 13 times, winning six of its races. More about the 125 S http://auto.ferrari.com/en_EN/sports-cars-models/past-models/125-s/
195S Touring Berlinetta
THE QUINTESSENTIAL GENTLEMAN DRIVER’S FERRARI
The 195 S Touring berlinetta is a racing sports car, and was introduced in 1950 at the Giro di Sicilia. It was driven by Giannino Marzotto, who was famous for taking the wheel in his signature double-breasted suit.
250GT Berlinetta SWB - 1961
The 250 GT Berlinetta SWB is one of the most iconic and successful cars in Ferrari history. This 1961 model in gunmetal silver with Bordeaux racing trim and matching leather interiors was once owned by Eric Clapton. It won its class at Le Mans, as well as finishing 3rd overall f at the Tour De France in 1960.
1963 250GT Berlinetta Lusso
INSPIRED BY THE 250 GT BERLINETTA LUSSO - 1963
Steve McQueen owned a 1963 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso, a gift from his first wife Neile Adams. Derived from the 250 GT Berlinetta, this model was not intended to compete in races, and is considered to be one of the most elegant Ferraris ever built. It stood out for its understated exterior design and exquisite and leather interiors with intricate stitching.
