Ahead of next years 70 anniversary celebrations since Ferrari’s first road-car, the Tailor Made department have designed 70 liveries inspired by history’s most iconic Ferraris. Naturally, we look at those inspired by F1.
The Icon, Inspired by the 125 S – 1947
The 125 S was the very first official racing sports car built by Enzo Ferrari and his team in 1947. It made its début on May 11 at the Piacenza racing circuit. With its bold red exterior and elegant silhouette, this model has become a true icon.
The Fangio, Inspired by the 290 MM -1956
The 290 MM was built for Argentinian race legend Juan Manuel Fangio to be driven at the 1956 Mille Miglia, a thrilling race that ended with four Ferraris taking the first four places. The car had a racing livery that incorporated the blue and yellow colours of the Argentinian flag.
The Stirling, Inspired by the 250 GT Berlinetta Passo Corto – 1961
Stirling Moss drove his legendary 250 GT Berlinetta SWB to victory three times, including in the 1961 Tourist Trophy. In striking blue with a horizontal racing stripe and classic white roundels on the doors, this model really stands out.
The Surtees, Inspired by the 158 F1 – 1964
Racing legend John Surtees drove his F1 158 to victory in 1964, earning the title of World Champion. In fact, he competed in the USA and in Mexico with this unusual livery; the cars were not entered by the Italian factory itself, but instead by the US-based NART team. This was an act of protest over arguments between Ferrari and the Italian Racing Authorities regarding the homologation of a new mid-engine Ferrari racing car.
The Lauda, Inspired by the 312 T – 1975
This is the 1975 312 T that Niki Lauda drove to victory. Lauda won 4 out of 5 races mid-season before snatching the title at Monza by finishing third, whilst Clay Regazzoni’s win in the same race secured the Constructors’ Championship title for Ferrari. The car has a red body, and the air scope is adorned with the Italian flag.
The Schumacher, Inspired by the F2003-GA – 2003
This unforgettable F1 car was driven by legend Michael Schumacher in 2003. Schumacher obtained 7 victories with the F2003-GA, winning both the Drivers’ and the Constructors’ Championship.
The word in the pitlane is that five of each of the 70 cars will be built. As well as the liveries, the Ferrari GTC4Lusso T made an appearance.
