    The Works Ferrari Prototypes were campaigned in the World Sportscar Championship with enormous success, on the greatest, most challenging, and most important circuits that today still provide the foundation and heritage of motorsport as we know it. The WSC was inaugurated in , and Ferrari was immediately successful with championship wins in and However, in , the goalposts moved in staggering style as the Germanic efficiency of Mercedes-Benz dominated three of the six events, claiming the World Championship in the process.

    Then, just as Mercedes-Benz retired at the end of , the old enemy Maserati entered a new machine in the form of the fabulous S. Ferrari recognized that it needed a new weapon if it was to reclaim its glory. Jano and engineer Andrea Fraschetti created an all-new engine, although it followed the principles inaugurated by Aurelio Lampredi, with an integral block and cylinder heads with screwed-in wet liners.

    The new engine was shorter and wider than the previous Lampredi designs, with considerable effort being put into the combustion chamber design to improve inlet and exhaust valve function.

    Additionally, two spark plugs per cylinder were fitted, with the net result being a 40 brake horsepower increase over the similarly sized Monza. Enzo convinced the best driver of the era, and, for most, arguably the greatest driver who ever lived, the soon to be five-time World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio, to lead the Works team in his latest and greatest creation.

    With that, so it was that Fangio and the MM came together with the sole purpose of securing the World Sportscar Championship for the Maranello Scuderia. These wonderful machines were therefore developed to the absolute limit of what was achievable, with no rules governing cylinder capacity or weight. The only limiting factor was the bravery of the driver and his ability to read the road ahead on some of the most challenging events for both car and driver that have ever existed.

    For this event, Fangio was allocated chassis number , a car that was specifically built with him, and the car offered here today. There were cars entered for the event, of which would start, but only would be classified as finishers. Juan Manuel Fangio was race and would start last, at exactly The race was intense from the onset, with the weather immediately deteriorating to torrential rain throughout Italy.

    A remarkable feat considering the conditions and that he was driving unaccompanied. Three cars from the Mille Miglia were featured heavily, but Enzo Ferrari chose to rest against one specific car for the photoshoot, and that car was , as can be seen pictured here. This spectacular roster of drivers finished 3rd overall, but the season was not over, and there were yet more incredibly talented drivers to sit behind the wheel. But, in , he had yet to drive a Ferrari.

    That was until he convinced Enzo to allow him to get behind the wheel of chassis at the Swedish GP at Kristianstad, the final race of the World Championship. He was partnered with the dashing Peter Collins, and the pair did not fail to impress with a 2nd place finish, which helped Ferrari secure the World Sportscar Championship, exactly as Enzo had set out to do. This tremendous form would continue throughout , and Ferrari would go on to secure yet another championship.
