Ferrari 500 F2 1953
Ascari drove his 500 F2 to the title of a two-time world champion in 1952 and 1953. Other drivers such as Villoresi, Farina, Taruffi and the young Mike Hawthorn also contributed to the winning streak of the 500 F2.
This legendary car virtually won everything there was to win during these years, hence its nickname the Super-Ferrari.
In 1955, Alberto Ascari died of a tragic accident in Monza, and the whole nation of Italy was deeply mournful.
This all metal model is a tribute to the legendary Ferrari 500 F2, the world championship car of 1953.
