Ferrari Paints the Track Red (and a Dash of Yellow) with Sizzling 499P Livery Reveal on Enzo’s Birthday!

Maranello, 18 February 2024 – It’s party time at Ferrari as they celebrate Enzo Ferrari’s birthday in style, unwrapping the stunning new look of their 499P racers for the 2024 Hypercar class in the FIA WEC. The big reveal? Cars numbered 50 and 51, ready to burn rubber with the Ferrari – AF Corse team when the season starts on 2 March in Qatar.

This year’s livery is a snazzy mix of tradition and future-forward thinking. It’s a nod to last season’s triumphs, including a jaw-dropping win at the Centenary 24 Hours of Le Mans and a nail-biting second place in the Manufacturers’ standings, but with a fresh twist.

What’s new? The iconic Ferrari red, a global symbol of Italian zest for sports, is back with a bang, paired with Giallo Modena yellow, a familiar sight from the 2023 livery. This dynamic duo highlights the car’s sleek lines, making it look even more sculptural.

The color scheme is a heartfelt tribute to the Ferrari 312 PB, the last prototype in the World Championship back in ’73. After a 50-year hiatus, Ferrari’s back with a vengeance in endurance racing. The new racing red, reminiscent of the F2007 from Formula 1 in 2007, adds a glossy sheen to the 499P, ensuring these beauties shine, rain or shine, day or night.

The design of the two 499P numbers 50 and 51, helmed by Ferrari’s six official hotshots, is a departure from last year’s look. The goal? To make the car’s body and cockpit pop with staggered color blocks, creating a fluid, rhythmic design that plays up the car’s curves and angles.

Side view? A sight to behold! The Giallo Modena wraps around the cockpit, emphasizing its heart and soul. The new graphic elements – lines, bands, and horizontal streaks – in the same hue scream dynamism and speed, especially around the rear wheelarches, tail fin, and rear-wing end plates.

The crew? Like last season, the Ferrari – AF Corse team is all geared up with Antonio Fuoco, Miguel Molina, and Nicklas Nielsen in car 50, and Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado, and Antonio Giovinazzi in car 51.

Mark your calendars! The FIA World Endurance Championship kicks off with the Lusail International Circuit in Qatar, followed by a globe-trotting race schedule including Imola, Spa-Francorchamps, Le Mans, São Paulo, COTA, Fuji, and wrapping up in Bahrain. Strap in, folks, it’s going to be a wild ride!
