The Ferrari Museum of Maranello enjoyed record audience in 2016 and has expanded its halls, in the process opening two new exhibits — “Under the Skin” and “Infinite Red” as part of the celebration of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary.
A new wing at the museum connects to the main building via a continuous glass facade. Additionally, an events room has been created that can host up to 250 people. Also new are a refreshments area and a Ferrari Store.
According to the museum, the “Under the Skin” exhibition was created in partnership with the London Design Museum and looks at the creative and engineering development of Ferrari through a series of exceptional cars, starting with the first car produced by Ferarri, the 124S.
Also in the exhibit are technical drawings from the historical archive of the iconic Prancing Horse. Engines on display reveal the design process behind all cars of all eras. The exhibition will move to the London Design Museum from November.
“Infinite Red” looks at the 70-year history of the marque with some of Maranello’s most exclusive creations -– such as Formula One cars, including the 500 F2 driven by Alberto Ascari, who won the first world drivers’ title in 1952 for Ferrari, the F2004 that won the most GPs in history, and the F2008, which won the World Constructors’ Championship.
Additionally, the exhibit includes various GT models from the 250 family, including the 250 GT Berlinetta “Tdf,” the 250 GT Berlinetta SWB and the 250 GTO, and select limited editions like the F50, Enzo, and LaFerrari in addition to the FXX K version for track use only.
Visitors can see these cars until the end of this year.
The Ferrari Museum is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., closing one hour earlier from November to March.
