Until 15 March 2019, H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco will host a unique exhibition of Ferrari vehicles.
Founded by Enzo Ferrari in Maranello, Italy in 1947, the auto maker known by the famous prancing horse crest has left an indelible mark on road and race cars. With its prestige sports cars, Ferrari quickly established itself as a leader in the automotive industry, for the technical prowess and the beauty of its vehicles.
At this one-off exhibition in Europe, around fifty of the brand’s most iconic Grand Prix and Sports cars – those that forged the Ferrari legend and inspired millions of fans – will be brought together in the Principality until mid March.
Ferrari fans will get the chance to see models including:
• The 1960 246 F1, the last car to have a front-mounted engine. It competed in Formula 1 in 1960.
• The 1961 246 SP, the first Ferrari with a central rear-mounted engine.
• The 1962 250 GTO, of which just 36 were built. Widely considered the most legendary Ferrari and the Italian carmaker’s finest sports car of all time. Winner of the Tour de France driven by Bianchi/Berger, it was sold at auction for 70 million dollars, making it the world’s most expensive car to date!
• The 1965 250 LM, as beautiful as it is powerful. The heir to the 250 GTO, a total of 32 were built, each packing 320 HP for a weight of 840 kg.
• The 1970 512 S, of which 26 were built. The 512 refers to the 5 litre V12 engine. This model appears in the 1971 film “Le Mans”, starring Steve McQueen.
• The 1989 F1 with which Nigel Mansell won the Brazilian and Hungarian Grands Prix. The same car was driven to victory in the Portuguese Grand Prix by Gerhard Berger that same year.
• The 1991 F40, the last “Supercar” made during the lifetime of Enzo Ferrari.
• The 2004 Enzo, directly inspired by Formula 1, from the bodywork to the mechanics, and the high-performance materials used, 660 HP and a top speed of 363 km/h. It was dubbed Enzo in tribute to the “Commendatore”.
• The 2016 Aperta, the most powerful road Ferrari ever made, 963 HP, capable of 0 to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds.
