Record Attendance at the Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) Museum in 2017
For those that have not had a chance to check out the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, there is a new exhibition on display joining “Under the Skin” and “Infinite Red.”
Called “GP d’Autore,” the exhibition is a collection of 20 works by 9 graphic novel artists, documenting each round of the 2017 F1 World Championship season.
“The exploits of the Scuderia Ferrari’s SF70H single-seater F1 racer are immortalized in works featuring pyramids and superheroes, skyscrapers and dragons, mountains and deserts that reference modern-day stories as well as those from history,” Ferrari said in a release describing the new exhibition Friday.
Attendees will have until February to check out GP d’Autore, and it is included in the admission ticket to the Museum.
Artists featured in the exhibit include Elia Bonetti, Theo, French Carlomagno, Gigi Cavenago, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Marco Mastrazzo, LRNZ, Fabrizio De Tomasso, and Emiliano Mammucuri.
There are 14 super Ferraris on display at the Ferrari London celebration.
The Design Museum in London is playing host to Ferrari: Under the Skin, an exhibition that explores the history and design of Ferrari.
The exhibition features 14 exotic Ferraris, from classic to modern, along with rarely seen material from private collections.
The ambitious collection is also the 1st outside the Museo Ferrari in Maranello and guests will also get to enjoy drawings, personal letters, and memorabilia.
The exhibition will also look at the Italian automaker’s celebrity clientele, including notes by Miles Davis and archive photography of famous clients such as Clint Eastwood, Sammy Davis Jr., Brigette Bardot, and Peter Sellers. It will also of course pay homage to Ferrari’s rich history in motorsports, with helmets worn by Alberto Ascari, Mike Hawthorn, Michael Schumacher, and Kimi Räikkönen on display.
Other cars being exhibited include a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet owned by Peter Collins, 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, 1986 Testarossa Spider, and a 2016 LaFerrari Aperta.
The exhibition extends to April 2018. Check out the details here.
