Design Museum to celebrate 70 years of Ferrari with £140 million worth of cars

A collection of Ferrari vehicles, sketches and memorabilia will go on display at the Design Museum in London in November.

The display, which will be the first of its kind outside the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the brand with £140 million worth of iconic models.

They will range from an exact replica of the first Ferrari ever made, the 125 S (pictured below), to a 250 GTO and a Ferrari F40, as well as racing machinery, including Michael Schumacher’s Formula 1 world championship-winning F1-2000. The newest model, the LaFerrari Aperta, owned by chef Gordon Ramsay, will help bookend the collection.

Among the rest of the display will be original design sketches, helmets of legendary Ferrari racing drivers including Sir Stirling Moss and Peter Collins, as well as Enzo Ferrari’s driving licence.

The co-curator of the Ferrari: Under the Skin exhibition, Andrew Nahum, said: “Ferrari represents an ideal case study in design and development. Ferrari uses the subtle and often unseen techniques of automobile design, but with the utmost care and precision. The exhibition provides an insight into the history and practice of the whole private world of automotive design.”

Kensington High Street’s Design Museum will open the exhibition to the public for five months starting from 15 November.

Ferrari certainly got under my skin this summer. Went to Ferrari land with the family in NE Spain in August and it was the biggest shambles of a park I’ve ever visited. Was completely overpriced for what little attractions it had.

That is unless you like endlessly queuing in 30c + of heat.

Take my advice and avoid!

Went to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi & it was excellent. No queuing in 30c heat, all Air-coned,Rides & displays & food very good. (maybe it's the Spanish lack of organisation???)

    Our first flavour of the 1.0 TSI-engined Skoda Fabia on UK roads shows it’s versatile but not all that sporty

    Can the updated Ford Ecosport improve its reputation and become the small SUV of choice, or is it another misguided effort from the Blue Oval?

    18 January 2018
    All-electric seven-seater is rarity among MPVs, and for good reason: the Nissan e-NV200 Evalia is pricey and still has limited usability. Expect to see plenty as city taxis and delivery vans, though

    Seat is on a roll with the Ateca and Ibiza; can they score a hat trick with the new Arona?

    With much riding on the success of the Jaguar E-Pace, we have been impressed with the mid-level diesel version, but now its time for the most powerful oilburner to go under the spotlight
