    Hi maha - I am late to this party, but am interested in the blue #8 car livery since my father owned the 500 Mondial that was obviously the inspiration for it for 58 years. Does anyone here have any clue who might own this car? Or where it lives?

    Just so you know, this livery was originally worn by the 1955 500 Mondial, Series II, s/n 0556(0446)MD which was built the first week of May, 1955. It was originally sold to a French privateer, Francois Picard, so it was painted French Racing Blue. It was traded back to the Factory after a summer of racing and was sent to Caracas in November, 1955 as one of the Factory works cars for the first Grand Prix of Venezuela. It was driven by Eugenio Castellotti and Harry Schell to 5th overall and first in class for 2-liter. Two pics for you; one in the race w/ Castellotti at the wheel, and the second at Pebble Beach, 2008 where it won Best in Class for Ferrari Competition cars, and the Enzo Trophy for the Best Ferrari out of all the Ferrari classes. My father owned it from 1960 to 2018.

    It would be interesting to know why that owner painted it to mimic that specific and famous 1955 Mondial. I think it looks great and is a lovely gesture to pay homage to a race car from nearly 70 years ago with such an interesting history. There can't be too many Ferrari FACTORY team race cars painted other than Rosso Corsa.
