Two cars from the Museo Ferrari exhibition will be displayed, representing the history of the Prancing Horse.The first, the 500 F2, is the single-seater which won the 1952 F1 Championship. 2012 sees, in fact, the 60th anniversary of the first Ferrari victory in this Championship with Alberto Ascari, who took the first of the Scuderia Ferrari 's 15 Drivers' titles to date.

The second car is a 1959 250 GT Berlinetta short wheelbase, one of the most successful Ferrari models and the highest expression of a road-going sports car which was also extremely successful in motor sport competitions. In the early 1960s it ruled the GT category in endurance races, winning the Tour de France three times in a row (1959-62) and Le Mans twice, in 1960 and 1961.

The Museo Ferrari, opened in 1990, is the true custodian of the legend of the Prancing Horse, presenting the cars, the images and the trophies from the history of the manufacturer's 65 successful years.

In 2011 the museum set a new record with around 240,000 visitors from all over the world. The museum's collection includes the first Ferrari ever built - the 1947 125 S - and significant historical cars as well as the most recent motor sport and Grand Touring models, such as the FF, the first Ferrari with four-wheel drive. Furthermore the museum hosts Enzo Ferrari's office with its original furniture and objects.
