10 June 1973, 4 p.m. The chequered flag waves at the last 24 Hours of Le Mans in which Ferrari were entered in the top class. 49 years after that date, Ferrari unveils the first details of the Le Mans Hypercar that will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship from 2023. The car, which will begin its first development tests in the coming weeks, shows strong design references to the stylistic features that distinguish the models in the Prancing Horse range.
With just over a year to go until the centenary edition of the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2023, the countdown to the appointment with history, fifty years after that last participation, has officially begun.
