Ferrari 375 Indianapolis - Ferrari 375 Indianapolis
The car was built for the 500 miles from Indianapolis , which were rated for the drivers' world championship from 1950 to 1960 . The vehicles differ from the 375F1 in that they have a slightly longer wheelbase (2420 mm) and a stiffer frame. Five copies were made in 1952, a sixth in late 1953 with a shorter wheelbase and tubular space frame .
At the Indianapolis 500 miles in 1952 , Alberto Ascari was unsuccessful with the works car and retired prematurely, the other Ferraris could not qualify.  Three cars were sold to private drivers and ran in the Formula Libre until the mid-1950s . There, the vehicles had in road racing far more success than in the Oval of Indianapolis , for which they were originally built.
