What's the logic behind Ferrari's F1 car naming in past years? I have a full liost below from Wiki form those interested.

Quote:
125 | 275 | 340 | 375 | 500 | 553 | 625 | 555 | D50 | 801 | 412 | 246 | 256 | 156 | 158 | 1512 | 312 | 312B | 312T | 126C | 156/85 | F1/86 | F1/87 | 640 | 641 | 642 | 643 | F92A | F93A | 412T | F310 | F300 | F399 | F1-2000 | F2001 | F2002 | F2003-GA | F2004 | F2005 | 248 F1 | F2007 | F2008 | F60
So we have various anomalies - even in recent years when things were logical. F1-2001 morphed into F2001, but why the GA on the F2003? Was there not also an F2004 M or something? of course the 248 F1 after the change form 10 to 8 cylinders, then the F60. And then from the 640 to F399 what is going on? I am pretty sure some of the earlier ones are the unitary displacement, the D50 is the Lancia, you have the years in the 156/85,| F1/86, F1/87, and the 312 denotes a 3L V12. As for the rest does anyone have any answers?

I've lost the link, but I've got the shots themselves. The car was called FX60 on that site. Here's a link to a special thread:

In favor of Gianni Agnelli, who has died then.

And this one is the 660.

GA stands for Gianni Agnelli, which died that year or in the winter before the season started.
otherwise, I think there isn't s defined scheme, sometimes they refer to the year, sometimes to the unitary displacement or to the displacement and number of cylinders. marketing in the end.

Really? Do they still continue this naming? Is 660 kind of an intern name?

By the way, that wikipedia list is by far incomplete - there were numerous intermediate and unraced cars actually.

According to Auto Motor Und Sport, the Exhausts on these cars do not meet current Criteria.

Essentially, this vehicle is illegal.
