‘Cavallino Rampante’ (‘Prancing Horse’), 1985
A highly important commemorative cast bronze Ferrari ‘Cavallino Rampante’ (‘Prancing Horse’) trophy, set on a square marble plinth, with enamelled Ferrari badge applied to the front and beneath an engraved brass plaque bearing ‘Alla Maranello Concessionnaires, 1960-1985’.
Height overall: 17 inches (43 cm).
Provenance: the Estate of Colonel Ronald J Hoare.
Ronald ‘Ronnie’ Hoare was granted the concessionaires’ rights to import Ferrari cars into the UK in 1960, following Mike Hawthorn’s death in 1959. This trophy was presented to Maranello Concessionaires in 1985, the year of Enzo Ferrari’s death, and commemorates the 25th anniversary of the concession.
