The forecast for 1952 was looking beak with Alfa Romeo having withdrawn from Grand Prix racing and no expected contenders against the already heavily decorated Ferrari and British Racing Motor teams. The real excitement and larger market opportunity was in Formula 2 so the FIA announced that the Grand Prix races would be open only to cars built to Formula 2 specifications.

Ferrari was already well positioned to take advantage of these new racing requirements with the Ferrari 500, a beautiful, simple-but-effective 2 liter, 4 cylinder front engine racer designed by Aurelio Lampredi. The car proved almost unbeatable at the hands of the talented Alberto Ascari, and Ascari secured the world championship for himself and Ferrari in 1952 and 1953.

This handsome, precision metal CMC Ferrari 500 F2 model is hand assembled from 1,463 parts and is a glorious tribute to the hugely successful monoposto.
