Gallery: Ferrari exhibition at the Design Museum

Under the Skin celebrates the past, present and future of the legendary sports car company

The illustrious history of Ferrari is explored and celebrated in Under the Skin, a new exhibition at the Design Museum. The story starts more than 70 years ago, when Enzo Ferrari first came up with his dream machine in a post-Second World War Italy, and goes on to cover the design and manufacturing process, Ferrari’s famous clientele and the future of the brand. The exhibition features a number of cars, including the very first Ferrari and one of Michael Schumacher’s Formula One vehicles. There are also original hand-drawn sketches, design models and engines, rare photographs and films. See below for a sneak peek at Ferrari: Under the Skin, which is open now and runs until April 15, 2018. To book tickets, go here.
