Ferrari: Under the Skin is a major exhibition that explores the history and design of Ferrari. It celebrates 70 years of creative development since the launch of the first car in 1947. Displaying rarely seen material from private collections, it provides a unique insight into the meticulous and glamorous world of Ferrari. The collection is the first outside the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, brings together early design models, drawings, personal letters and memorabilia as well as some of the most famous cars to grace the world’s roads and racing circuits. Together, these artefacts and original documents provide an unprecedented study of automotive design.
Hosted by Sir Terence Conran, Deyan Sudjic, Alice Black and Dylan Jones celebrity guests that came out in support of Ferrari’s 70 th anniversary included Idris Elba, Jodie Kidd, Peter Mandelson, Sarah-Jane Crawford, Nathan Sykes, Mark-Francis Vandelli, Paul Sculfor, Example, Zara Martin, and Cameron Edwards (Sigma) accompanied by Montana Brown, Nick Mason (Pink Floyd Drummer).
Terence Conran who attended the exhibition said:
“The Ferrari story is truly one of the great adventure stories of the industrial age and I am very proud we are able to tell it at the Design Museum… I am here, aged eighty-five and still lusting after the idea of owning a Ferrari – I want to go out with a beautiful, powerful and perfectly designed vroom!’
Drinking Veuve Clicquot and bespoke Remy Martin and Cointreau cocktails, guests enjoyed morel and truffle arancini, rosemary spiedini of seared scallop and pancetta, seared sesame-crusted tuna and courgette parcels with ricotta by Rocket Food at the opening party of the highly anticipated Ferrari: Under the Skin exhibition at the Design Museum in Kensington.
