This elegant hand built 1:1.8 scale model is a deluxe reproduction of the 500 F2, the legendary Ferrari vehicle that raced in the 1952 and 1953 world championships.
The single-seater with which Alberto Ascari twice won the driver's world title was the second to feature the new in-line four-cylinder designed by Lampredi and debuted at the Modena circuit on September 23 1951. It is thanks to the 500 F2 that Ascari remains the only Italian driver to have reached the top step of the podium on two occasions, both at the wheel of a Ferrari.
The 1:1.8 scale model, entirely hand built in Italy, faithfully reproduces the curvy and refined lines of the vehicle using original materials, giving life to a precious object that is both a passionate tribute to the motoring world and a remarkable piece of design.
This collector's model, suitable for all Ferrari history enthusiasts over the age of 14, grabs attention wherever it is displayed, preferably on a flat surface or with the wheels locked if on a gradient.
