Ode to the Ferrari 156 "Sharknose". Designed by Carlo Chiti.
Visually, the car was incredibly beautiful, simple and remarkable. At the front is the famous "Sharknose", because of its distinctive dual air inlet.
The first racing season of the cars earned five victories of seven races including a 1-2-3-4 finish in Spa. The world Championship was a battle between Phil Hill and Von Tripp and was won by the American Phil Hill. His three victories ensure the winning margin. Unfortunately, the successful season was marred by the tragic death of Hill's teammate, Wolfgang von Tripp and 14 spectators in Monza........
The car and its story.
A unique model that you will not often encounter.
