An All-Red Collection of Some of the Best Ferrari Models From its 70-Year History
Back in 1947, a man by the name of Enzo Ferrari rolled out with his first automobile offering, a beautifully boxy little red racer that was eponymously dubbed the Ferrari 125S–later to be recognized the world over under the nickname the Prancing Horse. 70 years and some 5,000 race victories later, the humble Italian brand has become one of the most respected and coveted automobile imprints the world over, garnering themselves highly affluent and cult-like followers, while dominating both the racing and lifestyle markets.
With a myriad of car models under its belt, we now have a the chance to peruse over a curated selection thanks to the Petersen Automotive Museum, who have taken it upon themselves to select a roster of historically significant models–both past and present–all running under the brand’s color theme of red. Included in the selection, you’ll find the likes of the 2006 Ferrari 248 F1 (a masterpiece that was driven by Michael Schumacher), the 1965 Le Mans-winning 250 LM, and the record holder for being the most expensive car in the world: the $38-millon dollar 250 GTO. The Petersen Automotive Museum will be hosting the Ferrari exhibit, dubbed Seeing Red: 70 Years of Ferrari, at their Los Angeles grounds, which is currently open through to April 2018. Check out a few of examples of what you’ll be able to marvel it throughout, with more information on the show here.
