Description of the original vehicle: 1950 marked the inception of the Formula One World Championship. From Day One, Ferrari was involved in this highest class of auto racing, flashing a distinctive symbol of the small black prancing horse called "Cavallino Rampante" in Italian. In fact, Ferrari is the only F1 participant that has remained active ever since. Its record of successes is just as im-pressive. In 1951 Alfa Romeo – the toughest opponent of Ferrari – decided to quit the Formula 1 series. The rules for competition were subsequently changed so that Formula 2 racing cars were allowed to participate in the championship. Luckily Ferrari had already developed one – the 500 F2. The new car was light-weighted and compact in size. Other new features included a very low barycentre, wellbalanced distribu­tion of the aggregates, good brakes and high torque. Developed by Aurelio Lampredi, the 4-cylinder engine was capable of rendering 185 hp. All these gave the 500 F2 a superior manoeuvre and response to handling. But there was more. The driver of the 500 F2 was none other than the exceptionally gifted Alberto Ascari. It was not without reason that he was known as ”The flying Milan“.

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.” With the return of the Mercedes and the rise of the Maserati in the 1954 season, Ferrari was faced with new cha­lenges. As a result, its winning streak came to a temporary end. One year later – in 1955, Alberto Ascari died of a tragic accident in Monza, and the whole nation of Italy was deeply mournful.

CMC Ferrari 500 F2, 1953

Cette réplique de la Ferrari 500 F2 est très bien réalisée, on aperçoit très bien la structure du châssis, les éléments mécaniques sont bien reproduits. A cause de son palmarès CMC aurait pu faire d’autres versions.
