Chassis: 0602M
The first of three 860 Monzas built, chassis 0602M served throughout 1956 as one of the works cars. Piloted by the likes of Luigi Musso, Juan Manual Fangio and Eugenio Castelotti, the car's consistent finishes contributed greatly to Ferrari securing the World Championship. Before the end of the year, it was sold to Alfonso de Portago, who briefly raced it before selling it to Luigi Chinetti in the United States. Driven by Bruce Kessler and Bob Grossman, the car remained competitive until the fall of 1958 when it secured a class win at Watkins Glen.

The car eventually ended up in the fabulous collection of the late Pierre Bardinon. At the time, it had the wrong engine installed. During the 1980s Ferrari restorer David Cottingham reunited the car with its original engine. Following the restoration, Cottingham extensively campaigned the car before selling it in 1993. The current owner acquired the rare 860 Monza in August of 1994 and since then it has only rarely been seen in public. It is seen here during one of those rare outings; the 2011 Goodwood Revival where Juan Manual Fangio was celebrated.
