About the Ferrari D50
The D50 first debuted in 1954 under the Lancia team – with a V8 engine used as a stressted chassis member and fuel tanks set inside the side pontons separate from the body, it sported many innovated designs for its time.

However in 1955, with increasing financial problems and having lost their ace driver A. Ascari in a crash during a testrun , Lancia had no choice but to hand off the D50 and the team’s assets/resources to Ferrari. Ferrari took the D50 and modified the body by combining the side pontons with the main body into one.

With the champion of the previous year, J.M. Fangio, joining the Ferrari team in 1956, Ferrari was able to take many victories with the D50. The D50 also managed to crown Fangio his fourth Driver’s Championship title.
