This red beauty is the first victorious F1 car with V6 engine and the last one with front-engine layout that won F1 GP. Ferrari 246 F1 was the machine empowered the legendary rivalry between Mike Hawthorn, Peter Collins and Luigi Musso. Just in half year all three died on and off track. That’s how Wolfgang von Trips entered the F1 Scuderia Ferrari team. He entered 27 competitions and won couple of them with his Ferrari 246.
Unfortunately von Trips died at the 1961 Italian GP at Monza after his car collided with Jim Clark`s Lotus. Not long before the tragic accident happened, he managed to establish a go-kart race track in Kerpen, Germany. This is the place where Michael and Ralf Schumacher made their first laps, long before their racing careers finished in F1. Coincidentally, Michael Schumacher win in `92 Belgian GP was the first full-length Grand Prix title won by a German pilot since von Trip`s last win at British GP in 1961.
Now you can own this bright red piece of Ferrari F1 gorgeousness as a vivid art print, beautifully created by Luis Ferrara.
