The 643 was a mid-season replacement during Ferrari’s 1991 Formula One campaign. It debuted for drivers Alain Prost and Jean Alesi at the 1991 French Grand Prix, where Prost ended up on the podium.

The car is powered by a 3.5-liter V12 capable of 710 horsepower. This chassis, #127, has the following competition history:

  • 1991 French Grand Prix – 4th (with Jean Alesi)
  • 1991 British Grand Prix – 17th, DNF (with Alesi)
  • 1991 Australian Grand Prix – 6th (with Gianni Morbidelli)

It was also a test car for the team at various tracks throughout the season. It was later refreshed by Ferrari before going to a South African collection. From there, it was restored under German ownership in 2016 and is now being offered by RM in Europe. Click here for more info.
