Ferraris in Tokyo
THE Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo is to host a Ferrari and Maserati exhibition from the end of this month until the middle of July. It is not the first time that the Italian cars have been treated as art, nor the first time that they have appeared in a major gallery, the earliest major event being at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1993, but as Japan is one of Ferrari's major markets a little help from the art world will not go amiss.
The Tokyo exhibition is billed as a celebration of the historic rivalry between Ferrari and Maserati. The exhibition will include a Ferrari 246 F1 car and the F2001 which was raced last year, while Maserati will be represented by the 250F. There will also be a variety of sports cars from both marques.
