Features

1988 Ferrari F1 Tipo 639 s/n 106, the second of only two Factory Tipo 639 F1 Factory prototype and test cars built for the FISA’s 1989 3.5 Litre atmospheric formula. F1 Tipo 639 s/n 106 was used to test Ferrari’s all-new Tipo 035, 3.5 litre V12 engine which produced 685 bhp at 13,000 rpm and was also the first Ferrari F1 car with today’s ubiquitous “paddle shifters”. Ferrari Tipo 639 s/n 106 was retained by the Factory from 1988 to April, 1999 and was then sold by Ferrari SPA to the first and only owner, in Reggio Emilia, Italy and so is a one-owner Ferrari F1 car! The development work and testing program for F1 Tipo 639 s/n 106 was conducted at Ferrari’s private test track Fiorano by Factory drivers Nigel Mansell, Gerhard Berger and test driver Roberto Moreno during 1988 and into 1989. Indeed, the seat in s/n 106 is signed and dated 22 Jan., 1989 by Mansell.

Like any Formula One car, F1 tipo 639 s/n 106 would require a factory race prep, safety inspection and the latest updates to be race ready.
