One of, if not the most important Ferrari Grand Prix car.
Driven by Niki Lauda to six Formula 1 Grand Prix wins, including the 1975 Monaco Grand Prix and the 1975 Drivers Championship. Two of its six wins came in the 1976 season along with a 2nd place finish at its final outing at the U.S. Grand Prix West, before regulations were changed and the high-airbox banned.
Chassis #023 was only ever driven by Niki Lauda and was the car that brought the Championship back to Maranello after an 11-year drought. In addition, it’s the car that gave Lauda the lead in the Championship in that legendary 1976 season before the regulations were changed.
Following its successful racing career (the level of wins never seen before at Maranello in one chassis and only ever seen once since, by Schumacher in 2004), it was sold by Enzo Ferrari to his great friend Pierre Bardinon for his famous Mas du Clos collection.
Jacques Setton, another famous Ferrari collector whose interest was mainly in competition Ferraris, approached Bardinon and eventually persuaded him to part with the car after Setton was informed by Commendatore Ferrari that #023 was their ‘winningest’ Ferrari Formula 1 car.
The car would remain in Setton’s ownership for nearly 40 years before being recently purchased by ourselves.
Chassis #023 is not just a very important Ferrari Grand Prix car, but a very important piece of Ferrari history.
